Variational Mixture of Gaussians RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was wondering if you can tell me how I need to put initial and consequent values for the approximate inference of Variational Mixture of Gaussians based on Bishop's Pattern Recognition and machine Learning (pages 478, 479) where he says: "Then in the subsequent variational equivalent of the M step, we keep these responsibilities fixed and use them to re-compute the variational distribution over the parameters using (10.57) and (10.59).". 

    I am not sure how exactly implement E and M steps regarding theses information.

  • I don't have the book at hand, but here's how to write a Gaussian mixture in Infer.NET using VMP.

  • Thank You ! The programming code doesn't matter to me. I don't know to reflect 10.64 and 10.65 into 10.57-10.59.
