We study data fusion under the assumption that data source-specific variation is irrelevant and only shared variation is relevant. Traditionally the shared variation has been sought by maximizing a dependency measure, such as correlation of linear projections in Canonical Correlation Analysis. In this traditional framework it is hard to tackle overfitting and model order selection, and thus we turn to probabilistic generative modeling which makes all tools of Bayesian inference applicable. We

We show that probabilistic CCA is a special case of the model family, and derive a new dependency-seeking clustering algorithm as another example. The solution is computed with variational Bayes.
