In this paper, we discuss simple methods for identification and handling of almost-deterministic relationships (ADR) in automatic constraint-based Bayesian network structure discovery. The problem with ADR is that conditional independence tests become unreliable when the conditional set almost-determine one of the variables in the test. Such errors have usually a cascading effect that causes many errors in the final graph. Several methods for identification and handling of ADR are discussed to… CONTINUE READING
