Synthesize tabular data

Using GMMs to generate tabular synthetic data:

Real-world domains are often described by tabular data i.e., data that can be structured and organized in a table-like format, where features/variables are represented in columns, whereas observations correspond to the rows.

Gaussian Mixture models (GMMs) are a type of probabilistic models. Probabilistic models can also be leveraged to generate synthetic data. Particularly, the way GMMs are able to generate synthetic data, is by learning the original data distribution while fitting it to a mixture of Gaussian distributions.
