The Mondrian Process
Daniel Roy · Yee Whye Teh

We describe a novel stochastic process that can be used to construct a multidimensional generalization of the stick-breaking process and which is related to the classic stick breaking process described by Sethuraman1994 in one dimension. We describe how the process can be applied to relational data modeling using the de Finetti representation for infinitely and partially exchangeable arrays.

I am a Professor of Statistical Machine Learning at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford and a Research Scientist at DeepMind. I am also an Alan Turing Institute Fellow and a European Research Council Consolidator Fellow. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto (working with Geoffrey Hinton), and did postdoctoral work at the University of California at Berkeley (with Michael Jordan) and National University of Singapore (as Lee Kuan Yew Postdoctoral Fellow). I was a Lecturer then a Reader at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL, and a tutorial fellow at University College Oxford, prior to my current appointment. I am interested in the statistical and computational foundations of intelligence, and works on scalable machine learning, probabilistic models, Bayesian nonparametrics and deep learning. I was programme co-chair of ICML 2017 and AISTATS 2010.
