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.
