Bayesian Methods in Artificial Intelligence

... The problem of exact inference in Bayesian networks is NP-hard, because it contains inference in propositional logic as a special case. Because of this, approximate inference algorithms have been designed, which can give good estimations of the results in reasonable time. The general approach to app ...
