This video was recorded at 7th International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis, Ljubljana 2007. In the last decade probabilistic graphical models -- in particular Bayes networks and Markov networks -- became very popular as tools for structuring uncertain knowledge about a domain of interest and for building knowledge-based systems that allow sound and efficient inferences about this domain. The lecture gives a brief introduction into the core ideas underlying graphical models, starting from their relational counterparts and highlighting the relation between independence and decomposition. Furthermore, the basics of model construction and evidence propagation are discussed, with an emphasis on join/junction tree propagation. A substantial part of the lecture is then devoted to learning... Show More
