Nonparametric Bayesian methods make use of infinite-dimensional mathematical structures to allow the practitioner to learn more from their data as the size of their data set grows. What does that mean, and how does it work in practice? In this tutorial, we’ll cover why machine learning and statistics need more than just parametric Bayesian inference. We’ll introduce such foundational nonparametric Bayesian models as the Dirichlet process and Chinese restaurant process and touch on the wide variety of models available in nonparametric Bayes. Along the way, we’ll see what exactly nonparametric Bayesian methods are and what they accomplish.
