Probabilistic Reasoning in Intelligent Systems: Networks of Plausible Inference
- Pearl
- 1988
(Show Context)
Citation Context ...SIAN NETWORKS A. Graphical Representation of Probability Distribution Bayesian networks (BNs) are a representation, via a directed acyclic graph, of the dependencies between a set of random variables =-=[12]-=-. The network represents causal relationships between the variables. There is one node for each variable and a directed edge from node A to node B represents that the variable at node A “causes” what ... |

A common technique in stochastic modelling for this situation is the use of graphical models to specify the relationships between variables =-=[4]-=-. A Bayesian Network (BN) is a type of graphical model. The advantages of using BNs is that they facilitate the clear specification of the relationships between system parameters, and they also lead t... |

Citation Context ...this type of analysis is to gain the ability to make decisions about the system. Here we use decision theory, the natural partner to Bayesian statistical methods for decision making under uncertainty =-=[16]-=-. This requires us to specify a function, the utility function, that describes the worth of different outcomes of a decision to us. The outcome depends on unknown quantities. We take the action that m... |
