Hierarchical Gaussian process latent variable models


The Gaussian process latent variable model (GP-LVM) is a powerful approach for probabilistic modelling of high dimensional data through dimensional reduction. In this paper we extend the GP-LVM through hierarchies. A hierarchical model (such as a tree) allows us to express conditional independencies in the data as well as the manifold structure. We first introduce Gaussian process hierarchies through a simple dynamical model, we then extend the approach to a more complex hierarchy which is applied to the visualisation of human motion data sets.
