Statistical Data Analysis with Positive Definite Kernels
Kenji Fukumizu (Institute of Statistical Mathematics)
Schedule: October.6 - 10, 2008
Place: Kyushu University
Purpose of course
An introduction to the methodology of statistical inferrence with positive definite
kernels or reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. The course explains the basic
ideas of the methods with explanation of necessary mathematical background.
Various kernel methods are explained, with special focus on SVM. Also, recent development
of dependence anlaysis with kernels are explained in detail.
Deadline: November 10 (Mon.)
