A loss-based approach to change point analysis is proposed. In particular, the problem is looked from two perspectives. The first focuses on the definition of a prior when the number of change points is known a priori. The second contribution aims to estimate the number of change points by using a loss-based approach recently introduced in the literature. The latter considers change point estimation as a model selection exercise. The performance of the proposed approach it is shown on simulated data and real data sets.
