## What is the difference between naive Bayes and Gaussian naive Bayes?

Summary. Naive Bayes is a generative model. (Gaussian) Naive Bayes assumes that each class follow a Gaussian distribution. The difference between QDA and (Gaussian) Naive Bayes is that Naive Bayes assumes independence of the features, which means the covariance matrices are diagonal matrices.

**How do I import Gaussian naive Bayes?**

Fit Gaussian Naive Bayes according to X, y. Training vectors, where n_samples is the number of samples and n_features is the number of features. Target values….sklearn. naive_bayes . GaussianNB.

fit (X, y[, sample_weight]) | Fit Gaussian Naive Bayes according to X, y. |
---|---|

predict_log_proba (X) | Return log-probability estimates for the test vector X. |

**What is naive Bayes assumption How does it help explain with an example?**

In simple terms, a Naive Bayes classifier assumes that the presence of a particular feature in a class is unrelated to the presence of any other feature. For example, a fruit may be considered to be an apple if it is red, round, and about 3 inches in diameter.

### What is Gaussian Naive Bayes used for?

This extension of naive Bayes is called Gaussian Naive Bayes. Other functions can be used to estimate the distribution of the data, but the Gaussian (or Normal distribution) is the easiest to work with because you only need to estimate the mean and the standard deviation from your training data.

**Is Gaussian Naive Bayes Linear?**

Naive Bayes is a linear classifier.

**What is Gaussian classifier?**

The Gaussian Processes Classifier is a classification machine learning algorithm. Gaussian Processes are a generalization of the Gaussian probability distribution and can be used as the basis for sophisticated non-parametric machine learning algorithms for classification and regression.

## Why we use Gaussian naive Bayes?

**How does Gaussian Naive Bayes work?**

Gaussian Naive Bayes supports continuous valued features and models each as conforming to a Gaussian (normal) distribution. An approach to create a simple model is to assume that the data is described by a Gaussian distribution with no co-variance (independent dimensions) between dimensions.

**What is Gaussian naive Bayes used for?**

### What is the naive Bayes algorithm used for?

Naive Bayes is a machine learning algorithm for classification problems. It is based on Bayesâ€™ probability theorem. It is primarily used for text classification which involves high dimensional training data sets. A few examples are spam filtration, sentimental analysis, and classifying news articles.

**What is naive Bayes algorithm?**

Naive Bayes algorithm is the algorithm that learns the probability of an object with certain features belonging to a particular group/class. In short, it is a probabilistic classifier.

**Why is naive Bayesian classification called naive?**

Naive Bayesian classification is called naive because it assumes class conditional independence. That is, the effect of an attribute value on a given class is independent of the values of the other attributes.
