Naive Bayes is a supervised classification algorithm that uses Bayes rule to compute the fit between a new observation and some previously observed data. The observations are discrete feature vectors, with the Bayes assumption that the features are independent. Although this is hardly ever true, the classifier works well enough in practice. Glossary: observation A feature vector of discrete data. class A possible classification for an observation. Classes: NaiveBayes Holds information for a naive Bayes classifier. Functions: train Train a new naive Bayes classifier. calculate Calculate the probabilities of each class, given an observation. classify Classify an observation into a class.
