About: The GPML toolbox is a flexible and generic Octave/Matlab implementation of inference and prediction with Gaussian process models. The toolbox offers exact inference, approximate inference for non-Gaussian likelihoods (Laplace's Method, Expectation Propagation, Variational Bayes) as well for large datasets (FITC, VFE, KISS-GP). A wide range of covariance, likelihood, mean and hyperprior functions allows to create very complex GP models.

Changes:

Logdet-estimation functionality for grid-based approximate covariances

  • Lanczos subspace estimation

  • Chebyshef polynomial expansion

More generic infEP functionality

  • dense computations and sparse approximations using the same code

  • covering KL inference as a special cas of EP

New infKL function contributed by Emtiyaz Khan and Wu Lin

  • Conjugate-Computation Variational Inference algorithm

  • much more scalable than previous versions

Time-series covariance functions on the positive real line

  • covW (i-times integrated) Wiener process covariance

  • covOU (i-times integrated) Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process covariance (contributed by Juan Pablo Carbajal)

  • covULL underdamped linear Langevin process covariance (contributed by Robert MacKay)

  • covFBM Fractional Brownian motion covariance

New covariance functions

  • covWarp implements k(w(x),w(z)) where w is a "warping" function

  • covMatern has been extended to also accept non-integer distance parameters

About: Nowadays this is very popular to use the deep architectures in machine learning. Deep Belief Networks (DBNs) are deep architectures that use a stack of Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBM) to create a powerful generative model using training data. DBNs have many abilities such as feature extraction and classification that are used in many applications including image processing, speech processing, text categorization, etc. This paper introduces a new object oriented toolbox with the most important abilities needed for the implementation of DBNs. According to the results of the experiments conducted on the MNIST (image), ISOLET (speech), and the 20 Newsgroups (text) datasets, it was shown that the toolbox can learn automatically a good representation of the input from unlabeled data with better discrimination between different classes. Also on all the aforementioned datasets, the obtained classification errors are comparable to those of the state of the art classifiers. In addition, the toolbox supports different sampling methods (e.g. Gibbs, CD, PCD and our new FEPCD method), different sparsity methods (quadratic, rate distortion and our new normal method), different RBM types (generative and discriminative), GPU based, etc. The toolbox is a user-friendly open source software in MATLAB and Octave and is freely available on the website.

Changes:

New in toolbox

  • Using GPU in Backpropagation
  • Revision of some demo scripts
  • Function approximation with multiple outputs
  • Feature extraction with GRBM in first layer

Logo JMLR Information Theoretical Estimators 0.63

by szzoli - June 9, 2016, 23:42:14 CET [ Project Homepage BibTeX BibTeX for corresponding Paper Download ] 169206 views, 29391 downloads, 3 subscriptions

About: ITE (Information Theoretical Estimators) is capable of estimating many different variants of entropy, mutual information, divergence, association measures, cross quantities and kernels on distributions. Thanks to its highly modular design, ITE supports additionally (i) the combinations of the estimation techniques, (ii) the easy construction and embedding of novel information theoretical estimators, and (iii) their immediate application in information theoretical optimization problems.

Changes:
  • Conditional Shannon entropy estimation: added.

  • Conditional Shannon mutual information estimation: included.

About: Toeblitz is a MATLAB/Octave package for operations on positive definite Toeplitz matrices. It can solve Toeplitz systems Tx = b in O(n*log(n)) time and O(n) memory, compute matrix inverses T^(-1) (with free log determinant) in O(n^2) time and memory, compute log determinants (without inverses) in O(n^2) time and O(n) memory, and compute traces of products A*T for any matrix A, in minimal O(n^2) time and memory.

Changes:

Adding a write-up in written/toeblitz.pdf describing the package.


About: The glm-ie toolbox contains scalable estimation routines for GLMs (generalised linear models) and SLMs (sparse linear models) as well as an implementation of a scalable convex variational Bayesian inference relaxation. We designed the glm-ie package to be simple, generic and easily expansible. Most of the code is written in Matlab including some MEX files. The code is fully compatible to both Matlab 7.x and GNU Octave 3.2.x. Probabilistic classification, sparse linear modelling and logistic regression are covered in a common algorithmical framework allowing for both MAP estimation and approximate Bayesian inference.

Changes:

added factorial mean field inference as a third algorithm complementing expectation propagation and variational Bayes

generalised non-Gaussian potentials so that affine instead of linear functions of the latent variables can be used
