As far as I know non-parametric in non-parametric Bayesian modelling means infinite number of parameters. Therefore I expected the same meaning in non-parametric empirical Bayes methods, however I am a little bit confused, because I cannot find infinite number of parameters in the description of non-parametrics empirical Bayes methods. Is it possible that in this case non-parametric means only no parameter?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
