"This book is an introduction to Bayesian networks at an accessible level for first-year graduate or advanced undergraduate students. I found this book to be an excellent introduction to the topic. It is well written, provides broad topic coverage, and is quite accessible to the non-expert. . This book provides a general introduction to Bayesian networks, defining and illustrating the basic concepts with pedagogical examples and twenty real-life case studies drawn from a range of fields including medicine, computing, natural sciences and engineering.

Bayesian Networks, the result of the convergence of artificial intelligence with statistics, are growing in popularity. Their versatility and modelling power is now employed across a variety of fields for the purposes of analysis, simulation, prediction and diagnosis. This book provides a general introduction to Bayesian networks, defining and illustrating the basic concepts with pedagogical. Through numerous examples, this book illustrates how implementing Bayesian networks involves concepts from numerous disciplines, including computer science, probability theory, information theory.

Bayesian Networks are becoming an increasingly important area for research and application in the entire field of Artificial Intelligence. This paper explores the nature and implications for Bayesian Networks beginning with an overview and comparison of inferential statistics and Bayes' Theorem. "This book is an introduction to the theory and methods underlying Bayesian statistics written by three absolute experts on the field. It is primarily intended for graduate students taking a first course in Bayesian analysis or instructors preparing an introductory one-semester course on Bayesian analysis.
