### Tensorflow Probability Implementation of Automatic Differentiation Variational Inference with Mixtures

In this paper, the authors suggest using the following loss instead of the traditional ELBO in order to train what basically is a Variational Autoencoder with a Gaussian Mixture Model instead of a ...

### How to find mixing ratios in a mixture model with known parameters?

This question does not ask for a formal solution or rephrasing, but for a practical implementation. That is why I am asking here and not on [cross-validate](https://clustering stats.stackexchange.com) ...

### Meaning of the covariance matrix?

I wonder about the excessive usage of the covariance matrix across all kinds of machine learning tools. So far, for me, the covariance is just a pre-step to get to the correlation. And as there is an ...

### MLE for Poisson conditioned on multivariate Gaussian?

I am writing some Python code to fit 2D Gaussians to fluorescent emitters on a dark background to determine the subpixel-resolution (x, y) position of the fluorescent emitter. The crude, pixel-...

### Fitting input data into Gaussian distribution

I'm currently reading papers on Variational Autoencoders (VAE). According to this article (http://proceedings.mlr.press/v95/guo18a/guo18a.pdf): By fitting the input data sample x(i) into the Gaussian ...

### How to build multiple variable regression having a mix of numerical & categorical features?

There is a need to estimate Annual Average Daily Traffic Volume (AADT). We have bunch of data about vehicles' speeds during several years. It is noticed that AADT depends on the average number of such ...

### Predicting a Conditional Distribution

Given a stream of data containing a vector of independant variables $X$ and a dependant variable $Y$, I would like to capture the probability distribution of $Y|X$, such that a synthetic data stream ...

### Linear transformation from one sample to another

Generate a Sample $\underline{Z_1}$ $\underline{Z_2}\dots \underline{Z_{5000}}$ , while $\underline{Z_i} \sim N_2[(0,0)^T,I_2]$ generate new sample with size of $n = 5000$ by applying linear ...

### Does standardization result in normal distribution?

I have a question about standardization (subtract mean, divide by standard deviation) of data consisting of different features with different ranges. I read some information that seemed to be ...

### Getting mean and covariance matrix for multivariate normal from keras model

I have a dataset that has 6 input features and 5 output features. I want to use a keras sequential model to estimate the mean vector and covariance matrix from any row of input features assuming the ...

### Should I concat multiple stock timeseries datasets into one?

I have several timeseries datasets of stock data, with fundamental indicators. I would like to build a model that selects stocks for buy and hold. I understand that to perform this task I have two ...

### Getting vague results using VAR time series forecasting in python!

Firstly, I am a beginner in this field of Data Science and have tried to implement some time series models for wind speed forecasting. Also, I am aware of the fact that some regression models might ...

### Sequential sampling from Gaussian conditional not working

I'm trying to sequentially sample from a Gaussian Process prior. The problem is that the samples eventually converge to zero or diverge to infinity. I'm using the basic conditionals described e.g. ...

### Getting a balanced sample across many variables

Let’s say each element in my population has several attributes. Let’s call then A, B, C, D, E, F. Let’s say, for simplicity, each attribute has 10 values (but could be any number between 2 and 30). ...

### Consolidating multivariate time-series information from many data sets

I am having trouble setting up a problem with regards to time series analysis. I have 30 data sets, where each set corresponds to a certain project. Each project has 7 features, and each feature has ...

### Does Anomaly Detection Algorithm works when the features are not correlated?

I am working on an Anomaly Detection Problem and the algorithm I used is an Autoencoder Multivariate Gaussian. The problem with my data is that it is unlabeled and not correlated. For example, let's ...

### Can GLM( generalized linear method) handle the collinearity between the predictor variables in a regression-analysis?

I'm a beginner in Machine learning and I've studied that collinearity among the predictor variables of a model is a huge problem since it can lead to unpredictable model behaviour and a large error. ...

### How to draw a sample from data set with respect to a given categorical or numerical variable based on given freely chosen distribution? (Python)

Say I have a data set for some past period. Now new data appears and for a given variable in the data and we find that the distributions have shifted (for example with "age" it would be that suddenly ...

### How can I fix regression model interpretation of feature?

I'm building a regression model to predict the values of a feature $Y$ given a set of other features $X_{1}, X_{2}, X_{3}..X_{n}$. Onde of these other features, let's say $X_1$, is known to be ...

### Hidden Markov Model with Autoregressive emission model?

So far, all standard HMM implementations I've seen assume some variation of a Gaussian Mixture (GMM) as their emission model. It can of course only have a single mixture component which reduces it to ...

### Can the dependency between variables be deduced from data? And if so, how?

I have a data set $X$ that consists of $m$ vectors $\vec{x}$ of $n$ real-valued components. Each vector component lies within a corresponding predefined interval of valid values, which is the same for ...
