Bayesian belief networks are being increasingly used as a knowledge representation for reasoning under uncertainty. Some researchers have questioned the practicality of obtaining the numerical probabilities with sucient precision to create belief networks for large-scale applications. In this work, we i n v estigate how precise the probabilities need to be by measuring how imprecision in the probabilities aects diagnostic performance. We conducted a series of experiments on a set of real-worldâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
