1. Downloading the tutorial network and data files

If you haven't done so already, install and run VIBES (see Getting Started with VIBES).

Now download the tutorial examples zip file and unpack it to a convenient location. It contains:

  • XML files corresponding to three Bayesian networks
  • A Matlab file containing the data

The data used in this tutorial is two-dimensional and consists of nine clusters in a three-by-three grid, as illustrated below. It is stored as a 500x2 matrix called x in the supplied Matlab file MixGaussianData2D.mat. The dimensions of the data are also stored in the Matlab file as variables N and d with values of 500 and 2 respectively.
