Often the classifier used for a specific problem is an approximation of the optimal classifier. Methods are presented for evaluating the performance of an approximation in the model class of Bayesian Networks. Specifically for the approximation of class conditional independence a bound for the performance is : Magnus Ekdahl. Using Gaussian approximations in Bayes’ theorem Using LDA and QDA in practice Bayes’ classifier — a theoretical justification for turning p(y | x) into yb. Bayes’ classifier Optimality of Bayes’ classifier Bayes’ classifier in practice: useless, but a source of inspiration. Any model that classifies examples using this equation is a Bayes optimal classifier and no other model can outperform this technique, on average. Any system that classifies new instances according to [the equation] is called a Bayes optimal classifier, or Bayes optimal learner. Learning Bayesian networks from data is a rapidly growing field of research that has seen a great deal of activity in recent years, including work by Buntine (, ), Cooper and Herskovits (), Friedman and Goldszmidt (c), Lam and Bacchus (), Hecker-Cited by:

One of the most important goals of unsupervised learning is to discover meaningful clusters in data. Clustering algorithms strive to discover groups, or clusters, of data points which belong together because they are in some way similar.

Classification, the process of quantitatively figuring out what class (a.k.a. group) a given observation should be assigned to, is an important one in data : Tony Yiu. I am having trouble grokking some very elementary material regarding Bayesian Classification in Introduction to Statistical Learning at the end of pg. 37 to the very top of pg. 39 (i.e., the section entitled "The Bayes Classifier" which is accessible via the link). Here is a relevant snippet. The Naive Bayes classifier employs single words and word pairs as features. It allocates user utterances into nice, nasty and neutral classes, labelled +1, -1 and 0 Size: KB.
