The search of optimal Bayesian network from a database of observations is NP-hard. Nevertheless, several heuristic search strategies have been found to be effective. We present a new population-based algorithm to learn the structure of Bayesian networks without assuming any ordering of nodes and allowing for the presence of both discrete and continuous(More)
A Bayesian network is a graph-based model of joint multivariate probability distributions that captures properties of conditional independence between variables. Such models are an effective way to characterize probabilistic and causal relations among variables providing a clear methodology for learning from observations. In recent years their use to(More)
