Complex function of a subset of inputs


Figure 17: Example uses of locally weighted learning for modeling

Fig. 17 shows a variety of applications where there are numerous measurements taken from a process, but the values we want to predict are a complex function of only a small subset of them. Later in this tutorial we'll show how Vizier does feature selection and why memory based learning is well suited to feature selection problems.
