float64_t get_marginal_likelihood_estimate ( int32_t  num_importance_samples = 1,
float64_t  ridge_size = 1e-15 
)
inherited

Computes an unbiased estimate of the marginal-likelihood (in log-domain),

\[ p(y|X,\theta), \]

where \(y\) are the labels, \(X\) are the features (omitted from in the following expressions), and \(\theta\) represent hyperparameters.

This is done via a Gaussian approximation to the posterior \(q(f|y, \theta)\approx p(f|y, \theta)\), which is computed by the underlying CInferenceMethod instance (if implemented, otherwise error), and then using an importance sample estimator

\[ p(y|\theta)=\int p(y|f)p(f|\theta)df =\int p(y|f)\frac{p(f|\theta)}{q(f|y, \theta)}q(f|y, \theta)df \approx\frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^n p(y|f^{(i)})\frac{p(f^{(i)}|\theta)} {q(f^{(i)}|y, \theta)}, \]

where \( f^{(i)} \) are samples from the posterior approximation \( q(f|y, \theta) \). The resulting estimator has a low variance if \( q(f|y, \theta) \) is a good approximation. It has large variance otherwise (while still being consistent). Storing all number of log-domain ensures numerical stability.

Parameters
num_importance_samplesthe number of importance samples \(n\) from \( q(f|y, \theta) \).
ridge_sizescalar that is added to the diagonal of the involved Gaussian distribution's covariance of GP prior and posterior approximation to stabilise things. Increase if covariance matrix is not numerically positive semi-definite.
Returns
unbiased estimate of the marginal likelihood function \( p(y|\theta),\) in log-domain.

void map_parameters ( DynArray< TParameter * > *  param_base,
int32_t &  base_version,
DynArray< const SGParamInfo * > *  target_param_infos 
)
inherited

Takes a set of TParameter instances (base) with a certain version and a set of target parameter infos and recursively maps the base level wise to the current version using CSGObject::migrate(...). The base is replaced. After this call, the base version containing parameters should be of same version/type as the initial target parameter infos. Note for this to work, the migrate methods and all the internal parameter mappings have to match

Parameters
param_baseset of TParameter instances that are mapped to the provided target parameter infos
base_versionversion of the parameter base
target_param_infosset of SGParamInfo instances that specify the target parameter base

Definition at line 686 of file SGObject.cpp.

TParameter * migrate ( DynArray< TParameter * > *  param_base,
const SGParamInfo target 
)
protectedvirtualinherited

creates a new TParameter instance, which contains migrated data from the version that is provided. The provided parameter data base is used for migration, this base is a collection of all parameter data of the previous version. Migration is done FROM the data in param_base TO the provided param info Migration is always one version step. Method has to be implemented in subclasses, if no match is found, base method has to be called.

If there is an element in the param_base which equals the target, a copy of the element is returned. This represents the case when nothing has changed and therefore, the migrate method is not overloaded in a subclass

Parameters
param_baseset of TParameter instances to use for migration
targetparameter info for the resulting TParameter
Returns
a new TParameter instance with migrated data from the base of the type which is specified by the target parameter

Definition at line 893 of file SGObject.cpp.

void one_to_one_migration_prepare ( DynArray< TParameter * > *  param_base,
const SGParamInfo target,
TParameter *&  replacement,
TParameter *&  to_migrate,
char *  old_name = NULL 
)
protectedvirtualinherited

This method prepares everything for a one-to-one parameter migration. One to one here means that only ONE element of the parameter base is needed for the migration (the one with the same name as the target). Data is allocated for the target (in the type as provided in the target SGParamInfo), and a corresponding new TParameter instance is written to replacement. The to_migrate pointer points to the single needed TParameter instance needed for migration. If a name change happened, the old name may be specified by old_name. In addition, the m_delete_data flag of to_migrate is set to true. So if you want to migrate data, the only thing to do after this call is converting the data in the m_parameter fields. If unsure how to use - have a look into an example for this. (base_migration_type_conversion.cpp for example)

Parameters
param_baseset of TParameter instances to use for migration
targetparameter info for the resulting TParameter
replacement(used as output) here the TParameter instance which is returned by migration is created into
to_migratethe only source that is used for migration
old_namewith this parameter, a name change may be specified
