    Description

      This JIRA is to discuss refactoring NaiveBayes in order to support both discrete and continuous labels and features.

      Currently, NaiveBayes supports only discrete labels and features.

      Proposal: Generalize it to support continuous values as well.

      Some items to discuss are:

      • How commonly are continuous labels/features used in practice? (Is this necessary?)
      • What should the API look like?
        • E.g., should NB have multiple classes for each type of label/feature, or should it take a general Factor type parameter?
