Top customer reviews
The book is highly technical but it also does a great job explaining how Gaussian Processes fit in the big picture regarding the last few decades in the Machine Learning field and how they are related in some ways to both SVM and Neural Networks.
I'm still working my way through the book but so far I'm extremely pleased with it. As the first reviewer said, it's an evolving subject so keep looking for new material.
It's a well-edited hardcover book and at this price it's a steal.
Otherwise, all the explanations concerning Gaussian Processes themselves for regression and classification are very clear and make this book a very worthwhile read. I would recommend also reading other books focusing more on Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Spaces in order to have a complete picture of these methods (e.g. "Learning with Kernels" by Scholkopf and Smola or for an even broader picture "Generalized Additive Models" by Hastie and Tibshirani).
Finally, since GP and RKHS for classification are still evolving subjects, it is probably a good idea to keep reading more material on them after finishing this book.
