GaussianEstimate Method (SparseDouble)

Estimate appropriate values for sigma given a data set.

Namespace:  Accord.Statistics.Kernels
Assembly:  Accord.Statistics (in Accord.Statistics.dll) Version: 3.6.0
Syntax
public static Gaussian Estimate(

Parameters

inputs
Type: Accord.MathSparseDouble
The data set.

Return Value

Type: Gaussian
A Gaussian kernel initialized with an appropriate sigma value.
Remarks
This method uses a simple heuristic to obtain appropriate values for sigma in a radial basis function kernel. The heuristic is shown by Caputo, Sim, Furesjo and Smola, "Appearance-based object recognition using SVMs: which kernel should I use?", 2002.
