PMTK is a collection of Matlab/Octave functions, written by Matt Dunham, Kevin Murphy and various other people. The toolkit is primarily designed to accompany Kevin Murphy's textbook Machine learning: a probabilistic perspective, but can also be used independently of this book. The goal is to provide a unified conceptual and software framework encompassing machine learning, graphical models, and Bayesian statistics (hence the logo). (Some methods from frequentist statistics, such as cross validation, are also supported.) Since December 2011, the toolbox is in maintenance mode, meaning that bugs will be fixed, but no new features will be added (at least not by Kevin or Matt). PMTK builds on top of several existing packages, available from pmtksupport, and provides a unified interface to them. In addition, it provides readable "reference" implementations of many common machine learning techniques. The vast majority of the code is written in Matlab. (For a brief discussion of why we chose Matlab, click here. Most of the code also runs on Octave an open-source Matlab clone.) However, in a few cases we also provide wrappers to implementations written in C, for speed reasons. PMTK currently (October 2010) has over 67,000 lines.
