  1. Derive the equation for the posterior mean by expanding the square in the exponential for each i, collecting all similar power terms, and making a perfect square again. Note that the product of exponentials can be written as the exponential of a sum of terms.
  2. For this exercise, we use the dataset corresponding to Smartphone-Based Recognition of Human Activities and Postural Transitions, from the UCI Machine Learning repository ( It contains values of acceleration taken from an accelerometer on a smartphone. The original dataset contains x, y, and z components of the acceleration and the corresponding timestamp values. For this exercise, we have used only the two horizontal components of the acceleration x and y. In this exercise, let's assume that the acceleration follows a normal distribution. Let's also assume a normal prior distribution for the mean values of...
