In regression learning, it is often difficult to obtain the true values of the label variables, while multiple sources of noisy estimates of lower quality are readily available. To address this problem, we propose a new Bayesian approach that learns a regression model from data with noisy labels provided by multiple oracles. The proposed method provides closed form solution for model parameters and is applicable to both linear and nonlinear regression problems. In our experiments on synthetic and benchmark datasets this new regression model was consistently more accurate than a model trained with averaged estimates from multiple oracles as labels.
