Probabilistic Modeling – a tutorial on Bayesian Networks

Submitted Sep 7, 2019

Details of the workshop (date, time, venue) and tickets available here: https://hasgeek.com/anthillinside/bayesian-networks-tutorial/

Bayesian networks (BNs) are graphical structures that capture the probabilistic relationships between several random variables. They are a natural fit for scenarios that can benefit from both causal as well as probabilistic semantics, thereby, gracefully combining prior knowledge (in causal form) and knowledge from data. In this tutorial, we discuss methods to construct Bayesian networks from prior knowledge and statistical methods to improve these models through data. We will cover the exact and approximate inference techniques as well as techniques to learn the parameters and structure of BNs. We illustrate the BN modeling approach using real-world case study.
