As a generalization of the Dirichlet process (DP) to allow predictor dependence, we propose a local Dirichlet process (lDP). The lDP provides a prior distribution for a collection of random probability measures indexed by predictors. This is accomplished by assigning stick-breaking weights and atoms to random locations in a predictor space. The probability measure at a given predictor value is then formulated using the weights and atoms located in a neighborhood about that predictor value. This… CONTINUE READING
