Mean field methods for classification with Gaussian processes

Opper, Manfred and Winther, Ole (1999). Mean field methods for classification with Gaussian processes. Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems, 11 , pp. 309-315.


We discuss the Application of TAP mean field methods known from Statistical Mechanics of disordered systems to Bayesian classification with Gaussian processes. In contrast to previous applications, no knowledge about the distribution of inputs is needed. Simulation results for the Sonar data set are given.
