The semiqualitative analysis of a well-known example from the literature is presented, and conclusions about the general use of semiqualitative modeling in reasoning under uncertainty is discussed.
ABSTRACT: This paper explores semi-qualitative probabilistic networks (SQPNs) that combine numeric and qualitative information.
We extend on this idea and present a new type of network in which both signs and numbers are specified; we further present an associated algorithm for probabilistic inference.
Driven by a ma ..." This paper describes a new approach to unify constraints on parameters with training data to perform parameter estimation in Bayesian networks of known structure.Learning reliable parameters of Bayesian networks often requires a large amount of training data, which may be hard to acquire and may contain missing values.So should you use Data Tables in lieu of Data Sets?Graphical models such as Bayesian Networks (BNs) are being increasingly applied to various computer vision problems.Accuracy of inferences in such models depends on the quality of network parameters.
For complete data, a global optimum solution to maximum likelihood estimation is obtained in polynomial time, while for incomplete data, a modified expectation-maximization method is proposed.
