Poczos et al. (2013):

‘Distribution regression’ refers to the situation where a response \(Y\) depends on a covariate \(P\) where \(P\) is a probability distribution. The model is \(Y=f(P)+\mu\) where \(f\) is an unknown regression function and \(\mu\) is a random error. Typically, we do not observe \(P\) directly, but rather, we observe a sample from \(P .\)
