When learning Bayesian network based classifiers continuous variables are usually handled by discretization, or assumed that they follow a Gaussian distribution. This work introduces the kernel based Bayesian network paradigm for supervised classification. This paradigm is a Bayesian network which estimates the true density of the continuous variables using kernels. Besides, tree-augmented naive Bayes, k-dependence Bayesian classifier and complete graph classifier are adapted to the novel… CONTINUE READING
