Description Details Customer Reviews Gives an introduction to the Minimum Message Length Principle and its applications, provides the theoretical arguments for the adoption of the principle, and shows the development of certain approximations that assist its practical application. This book is of interest to graduate students and researchers in Machine Learning and Data Mining. Electronic book text Edition: This allows it to usefully compare, say, a model with many parameters imprecisely stated against a model with fewer parameters more accurately stated.

Suppose we encode a message which represents describes both model and data jointly. The message breaks into two parts: The first part encodes the model itself.

The second part contains information e. MML naturally and precisely trades model complexity for goodness of fit. A more complicated model takes longer to state longer first part but probably fits the data better shorter second part. So, an MML metric won't choose a complicated model unless that model pays for itself.

## Minimum message length - Wikipedia

One reason why a model might be longer would be simply because its various parameters are stated to greater precision, thus requiring transmission of more digits. Much of the power of MML derives from its handling of how accurately to state parameters in a model, and a variety of approximations that make this feasible in practice. This allows it to usefully compare, say, a model with many parameters imprecisely stated against a model with fewer parameters more accurately stated.
