## Statistical Learning Theory 的本质

• assuming that the output value y to a given x is stochastically generated by P( · |x) accommodates the fact that in general the information contained in x may not be sufficient to determine a single response in a deterministic manner.
• assuming that the conditional probability P( · |x) is unknown contributes to the fact that we assume that we do not have a reasonable description of the relationship between the input and output values.

## SVM 和 GP 的关系

For a brief description of kernel ridge regression and Gaussian processes, see Cristianini and Shawe-Taylor (2000, Section 6.2).

We refer to Wahba (1999) for the relationship between SVMs and Gaussian processes.
