High-dimensional Copula Constructions in Machine Learning: An OverviewWith the ``discovery'' of copulas by machine learning researchers, several works have emerged that focus on the high-dimensional scenario. This talk will provide a brief overview of these works and cover tree-averaged distributions (Kirshner), the nonparanormal (Liu, Lafferty and Wasserman), copula processes (Wilson and Ghahramani), kernel-based copula processes (Jaimungal and Ng), and copula networks (Elidan). Special emphasis will be given to the high level similarities and differences between these works.
