Message Passing for Hybrid Bayesian Networks: Representation, Propagation, and Integration

Abstract

The traditional message passing algorithm was originally developed by Pearl in the 1980s for computing exact inference solutions for discrete polytree Bayesian networks (BN). When a loop is present in the network, propagating messages are not exact, but the loopy algorithm usually converges and provides good approximate solutions. However, in general hybrid… (More)
