The talk will summarise our recent work in using Gaussian process regression (a form of Bayesian non-parametric inference) to model moderate to high dimensional functions in chemistry. Applications range from constructing interatomic potentials (i.e. parametrisations of the Born-Oppenheimer potential energy surface) starting from total energy electronic structure calculations, to free energy surface reconstruction based on umbrella sampling trajectories. In every case studied so far, a careful treatment of data representation and hyperparameters leads to huge increases in computational efficiency and model fidelity.
