Fundamentals of Probabilistic Data Mining Université Grenoble Alpes
This lecture introduces fundamental concepts and associated numerical methods in model-based clustering, classification and models with latent structure. These approaches are particularly relevant to model random vectors, sequences or graphs, to account for data heterogeneity, and to present general principles in statistical modelling.
Model-based clustering, classification and models with latent structure are particularly relevant to model random vectors, sequences or graphs, to account for data heterogeneity, and to present general principles in statistical modelling. The following topics are addressed:
Principles of probabilistic data mining and generative models; models with latent variables
Probabilistic graphical models
Mixture models and clustering
PCA and probabilistic PCA
Generative models for series and graphs : hidden Markov models
Fundamental principles in probability theory (conditioning) and statistics (maximum likelihood estimator and its usual asymptotic properties).
Constrained optimization, Lagrange multipliers.
