MIxture Model using constraints RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am wondering if it is possible to infer a mixture model using constraints?

    To get more specific, I am interessted in using an Exponential-Uniform or Gamma-Uniform model and constrain the Exponential or Gamma distribution between 0 and 1.

    Is there a way to implement models like these?

  • If you are trying to learn the parameters of a truncated distribution then you would need to write a custom factor to take account of the modified normalizing constant.  These are not currently provided by Infer.NET.
