Parsimonious models

Parsimonious models are simple models with great explanatory predictive power. They usually explain data with a minimum number of parameters, or predictor variables. MoEClust is the R package that fits finite Gaussian mixtures of experts' models. It uses a range of parsimonious covariance with the help of EM or CEM algorithms.

Follow these steps to create a range of parsimonious covariance models with our AirQualityUCI dataset:
