We consider the problem of learning Bayes Net structures for related tasks. We present an algorithm for learning Bayes Net structures that takes advantage of the similarity between tasks by biasing learning toward similar structures for each task. Heuristic search is used to find a high scoringsetof structures (one for each task), where the scorefor a set of structures is computed in a principled way. Experiments on problems generated from the ALARM and INSURANCE networks show that learning the… CONTINUE READING
