Applications of Bayesian Networks

Jul 26, 2010 · New York, United States of America

Max Khesin is giving a follow up to his previous talk about graphical models. As usual you must go to the Eventbrite page and register there: http://nycml-applications-of-bayesian-networks.eventbrite.com/ Here is Max's brief description of the talk: I previously gave an intro talk on Graphical models (video here http://www.blip.tv/file/3234694 ), this is intended as a follow-up concentrating more on the applications of Bayesian Networks. Best single intro paper I found is Charniak’s here: http://www.cs.brown.edu/research/pubs/pdfs/1991/Charniak-1991-BNW.pdf

Here are the topics I intend to touch on in the follow-up- Knowledge engineering: noisy relationships and other structure modeling tricks- Applications: genetics, error correcting codes and some others.- Role of causality (if there is time) Recommended reading:http://www.cs.aau.dk/~uk/papers/pgm-book-II-06.pdf. The part I am specifically interested in is Part II: Model Construction, which starts on page 115 in this paper. This paper later got published as a book: Bayesian Networks and Influence Diagrams: A Guide to Construction and Analysis. Another book I highly recommend is Modeling and Reasoning with Bayesian Networks, chapter 5 is especially relevant.
