Objective Bayesian Nets for Breast Cancer Prognosis

Objective Bayesian Nets for Breast Cancer Prognosis

This video was recorded at Workshop on Probabilistic Modeling and Machine Learning in Structural and Systems Biology (PMSB), Tuusula 2006. According to objective Bayesianism, an agent's degrees of belief should be determined by a probability function, out of all those that satisfy constraints imposed by background knowledge, that maximises entropy. A Bayesian net offers a way of efficiently representing a probability function and efficiently drawing inferences from that function.
