Gaussian Process Regression for Bayesian Machine Learning

Acquire a powerful probabilistic modelling tool for modern machine learning, with fundamentals and application in Python

Probabilistic modelling, which falls under the Bayesian paradigm, is gaining popularity world-wide. Its powerful capabilities, such as giving a reliable estimation of its own uncertainty, makes Gaussian process regression a must-have skill for any data scientist. Gaussian process regression is especially powerful when applied in the fields of data science, financial analysis, engineering and geostatistics.
