Pythonic Bayesian Belief Network Framework ------------------------------------------ Allows creation of Bayesian Belief Networks and other Graphical Models with pure Python functions. Where tractable exact inference is used. Currently four different inference methods are supported with more to come. Graphical Models Supported -------------------------- - Bayesian Belief Networks with discrete variables - Gaussian Bayesian Networks with continous variables having gaussian distributions Inference Engines ----------------- - Message Passing and the Junction Tree Algorithm - The Sum Product Algorithm - MCMC Sampling for approximate inference - Exact Propagation in Gaussian Bayesian Networks Other Features -------------- - Automated conversion to Junction Trees - Inference of Graph Structure from Mass Functions - Automatic conversion to Factor Graphs - Seemless storage of samples for future use - Exact inference on cyclic graphs - Export of graphs to GraphViz (dot language) format - Discrete and Continuous Variables (with some limitations) - Minimal dependancies on non-standard library modules. Please see the short tutorial in the docs/tutorial directory for a short introduction on how to build a Bayesian Belief Network. There are also many examples in the examples directory.
