Models for machine learning and data mining in functional programming. (English) Zbl 1063.68082

Summary: The functional programming language Haskell and its type system are used to define and analyse the nature of some problems and tools in machine learning and data mining. Data types and type-classes for statistical models are developed that allow models to be manipulated in a precise, type-safe and flexible way. The statistical models considered include probability distributions, mixture models, function-models, time-series, and classification- and functionmodel-trees. The aim is to improve ways of designing and programming with models, not only of applying them.
