Machine learning for nonparametric unsupervised fraud detection

Domingues, Rémi

Research report

The Dirichlet Process Mixture Model algorithm presented here aggregates the variational inference method presented by Bishop in [1], the use of a Beta prior on the Dirichlet process responsible for the mixing proportions in [2] and the use of a Gamma prior on the concentration parameter of the Dirichlet process proposed by [3]. The current variational inference algorithm approximates the posterior distribution of the dataset by a mixture of multivariate Gaussians, inferring the mixing proportions from a stick-breaking process which concentration is inferred from a Gamma distribution.
