Bayesian network

(redirected from Belief network)

Bayesian network

A form of artificial intelligence—named for Bayes’ theorem—which calculates probability based on a group of related or influential signs. Once a Bayesian network AI is taught the symptoms and probable indicators of a particular disease, it can assess the probability of that disease based on the frequency or number of signs in a patient.

A Belief Network would represent this as a graphical structure, whose nodes represent probabilistic variables (such as "Hepatitis"), and whose directed links, roughly speaking, represent "causal dependencies," with the understanding that there should be a directed path from A to B, possibly a direct connection, if knowing the value of A can help specify the value for B.

It is foundationalist in that some beliefs about intrinsic value enjoy a kind of a priori justification and are basic in their epistemic function within the belief network.
