Hello, I am confused by the meaning of these four words:
Noisy Target vs Target Distribution
I understand that a target distribution is a probability distribution, but how about noisy target? What is a noisy target? A value or a function or a probability distribution?
Deterministic Target vs Deterministic Target Function
Same above, I understand that a deterministic target function is a function, but how about deterministic target? A value or a function?
And...
Quote:
Noisy target = deterministic target f(x) = E(yx) plus noise y − f(x)

Is y here a value or a function?
I am very confused...
Thank you very much for your time spending on here.
