PROBABILITY DENSITY ESTIMATION labelled unlabelled A specific functional form for the density model is assumed. This contains a number of parameters which are then optimized by fitting the model to the training set. The chosen form is not correct

4
PROBABILITY DENSITY ESTIMATION It does not assume a particular functional form, but allows the form of the density to be determined entirely by the data. The number of parameters grows with the size of the TS

5
PROBABILITY DENSITY ESTIMATION It allows a very general class of functional forms in which the number of adaptive parameters can be increased in a sistematic way to build even more flexible models, but where the total number of parameters in the model can be varied independently from the size of the data set.

Parametric model: normal or Gaussian distribution Some properties : any moment can be expressed as a function of and under general assumptions, the mean of M random variables tends to be distributed normally, in the limit as M tends to infinity (central limit theorem). Example: sum of a set of variables drawn independently from the same distribution under any non-singular linear transformation of the coordinate system, the pdf is again normal, but with different parameters the marginal and conditional densities are normal.

weighting factor (posterior distribution) drawn independently from the underlying distribution

25
A prior which gives rise to a posterior having the same functional form is said to be a conjugate prior (reproducing densities, e.g. Gaussian). For large numbers of observations, the Bayesian representation of the density approaches the maximum likelihood solution.

The Robbins-Monro algorithm positive Successive corrections decrease in magnitude for convergence Corrections are sufficiently large that the root is found The accumulated noise has finite variance (noise doesn’t spoil convergence )

31
The Robbins-Monro algorithm The ML parameter estimate can be formulated as a sequential update method using the Robbins-Monro formula.

33
Consider the case where the pdf is taken to be a normal distribution, with known standard deviation and unknown mean . Show that, by choosing aN aN = 2 / (N+1), the one-dimensional iterative version of the ML estimate of the mean is recovered by using the Robbins-Monro formula for sequential ML. Obtain the corresponding formula for the iterative estimate of 2 and repeat the same analysis.

34
SUPERVISED LEARNING histograms We can choose both the number of bins M and their starting position on the axis. The number of bins (viz. the bin width) acts as a smoothing parameter. Curse of dimensionality ( M d bins)

35
Density estimation in general The probability that a new vector x, x, drawn from the unknown pdf p(x), will fall inside some region R of x-space is given by: If we have N points drawn independently from p(x), the probability that K of them will fall within R is given by the binomial law: The distribution is sharply peaked as N tends to infinity. Assume p(x) is continuous and slightly varies over the region R of volume V.V.

36
Density estimation in general Assumption #1 R relatively large so that P will be large and the binomial distribution will be sharply peaked Assumption #2 R small justifies the assumption of p(x) nearly constant inside the integration region. FIXED DETERMINED FROM DATA K-nearest-neighbours

Density estimation in general Assumption #1 R relatively large so that P will be large and the binomial distribution will be sharply peaked Assumption #2 R small justifies the assumption of p(x) nearly constant inside the integration region. DETERMINED FROM DATA FIXED Kernel-based methods

38
We can find an expression for K by defining a kernel function H(u), also known as a Parzen window, given by: R is a hypercube centred on x Superposition of N cubes of side h with each cube centred on one of the data points. interpolation function (ZOH)

Kernel-based methods smoother estimate

40
Kernel-based methods 30 samples ZOH Gaussian

41
Kernel-based methods Over different selections of data points x n The expectation of the estimated density is a convolution of the true pdf with the kernel function and so represents a smoothed version of the pdf. All of the data points must be stored ! For a finite data set, there is no non-negative estimator which is unbiased for all continuous pdf’s (Rosenblatt, 1956)

42
K-nearest neighbours One of the potential problems with the kernel-based approach arises from the use of a fixed width parameter (h) for all of the data points. If h is too large, there may be regions of x-space in which the estimate is oversmoothed. Reducing h may lead to problems in regions of lower density where the model density will become noisy. The optimum choice of h may be a function of position. Consider a small hypersphere centred at a point x and allow the radius of the sphere to grow until it contains precisely K data points. The estimate of the density is then given by K / NV.

43
K-nearest neighbours The estimate is not a true probability density since its integral over all x-space diverges. All of the data points must be stored ! Branch-and-bound

44
K-nearest neighbour classification rule The data set contains N k points in class C k and N points in total. Draw a hypersphere around x which encompasses K points irrespective of their class.

45
K-nearest neighbour classification rule Find a hypersphere around x which contains K points and then assign x to the class having the majority inside the hypersphere. K = 1 : nearest-neighbour rule

46
K-nearest neighbour classification rule Samples that are close in feature space likely belong to the same class. K = 1 : nearest-neighbour rule

Techniques not restricted to specific functional forms, where the size of the model only grows with the complexity of the problem being solved, and not simply with the size of the data set. computationally intensive MIXTURE MODEL Training methods based on ML: nonlinear optimization re-estimation (EM algorithm) stochastic sequential estimation

54
MIXTURE DISTRIBUTION mixing parameters prior probability of the data point having been generated from component j of the mixture

55
To generate a data from the pdf, one of the components j is first selected at random with probability P(j) and then a data point is generated from the corresponding component density p(x j). It can approximate any CONTINUOUS density to arbitrary accuracy provided the model has a sufficiently large number of components, and provided the parameters of the model are chosen correctly. incomplete data (no component label)

70
Why expectation-maximization ? Hypothetical complete data set x n introduce z n, integer in the range (1,M), specifying which component of the mixture generated x. The distribution of z n is unknown

71
Why expectation-maximization ? First we guess some values for the parameters of the mixture model (the old parameter values) and then we use these, together with Bayes’ theorem, to find the probability distribution of the {z n }. We then compute the expectation of E comp w.r.t. this distribution. This is the E-step of the EM algorithm. The new parameter values are then found by minimizing this expected error w.r.t. the parameters. This is the maximization or M-step of the EM algorithm (min E = ML).

72
Why expectation-maximization ? P old (z n |x n ) is the probability for z n, given the value of x n and the old parameter values. Thus, the expectation of E comp over the complete set of {z n } values is given by: probability distribution for the {z n }

73
