Seminar by Dr. Cory Butz: "Introducing Darwinian Networks" - Thu, May 14, 2:30pm - 3:30pm (Expired)

Introducing Darwinian Networks

We suggest Darwinian networks (DNs) as a biological view of Bayesian networks (BNs). DNs adapt a handful of well-known concepts in biology into a single framework that is surprisingly simple, yet remarkably robust. With respect to modelling, on one hand, DNs not only represent BNs, but also faithfully represent the testing of independencies in a more straightforward fashion. On the other hand, with respect to three exact inference algorithms in BNs, DNs simplify each of them, while unifying all of them. DNs can determine good elimination orderings using the same platform as used for modelling and inference.
