Data mining is the process of extracting and analysing information from large databases. Graphical models are a suitable framework for probabilistic modelling. A Bayesian Belief Net(BBN) is a probabilistic graphical model, which represents joint distributions in an intuitive and efficient way. It encodes the probability density (or mass) function of a set of variables by specifying a number of conditional independence statements in the form of a directed acyclic graph. Specifying the structure… CONTINUE READING
