Free Seminar in Singapore: Bayesian Networks—Artificial Intelligence for Research, Analytics, and Reasoning.
“Currently, Bayesian Networks have become one of the most complete, self-sustained and coherent formalisms used for knowledge acquisition, representation and application through computer systems.” (Bouhamed et al., 2015)
In this seminar, we illustrate how scientists in many fields of study—rather than only computer scientists—can employ Bayesian networks as a very practical form of Artificial Intelligence for exploring complex problems. We present the remarkably simple theory behind Bayesian networks and then demonstrate how to utilize them for research and analytics tasks with the BayesiaLab software platform. More specifically, we explain BayesiaLab’s supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms for knowledge discovery in high-dimensional domains.
Also, while Artificial Intelligence is commonly associated with another buzzword, “Big Data,” we show that Bayesian networks can bring Artificial Intelligence to problems for which we possess little or no data. Here, expert knowledge modeling is critical, and we describe how even a minimal amount of expertise can serve as a basis for robust reasoning under uncertainty with Bayesian networks.
The seminar’s examples can also be found in Chapters 4, 6, and 7 in our book, Bayesian Networks & BayesiaLab: A Practical Introduction for Researchers, which can be downloaded free of charge (bayesia.com/book).
