Is possible to solve this kind of problem using Maximum Likelihood Estimator?
Say we have some vector field:
| x,y,z | 5,5,9 | 2,1,4 |
| 8,8,4 | 1,2,8 | 5,7,3 |
| 6,7,2 | 4,7,8 | 9,9,7 |
And for example we want to find the the location at the field, where the vector would be more or less similar to (9,9,9).
The possible solution could be two peaks of MLE: |9,9,7| or |8,8,4|
So is there the way to solve such kind of problems using Gaussian likelihood, or MLE or any other statistical tools?
Thanks a lot guys
