• 2. Goal of Today
• Structured representation of probability distribution
• 3. Probability
• Expresses uncertainty
• Pervasive in all of AI
• Machine learning
• Information Retrieval (e.g., Web)
• Computer Vision
• Robotics
• Based on mathematical calculus
• Disclaimer: We only discuss finite distributions
• 4. Probability
• Probability of a fair coin
• 5. Probability
• Probability of cancer
• 6. Joint Probability
• Multiple events: cancer, test result
Has cancer? Test positive? P(C,TP) yes yes 0.018 yes no 0.002 no yes 0.196 no no 0.784
• 7. Joint Probability
• The problem with joint distributions
• It takes 2 D -1 numbers to specify them!
• 8. Conditional Probability
• Describes the cancer test:
• Put this together with: Prior probability
• 9. Conditional Probability
• We have:
• We can now calculate joint probabilities
Has cancer? Test positive? P(TP, C) yes yes yes no no yes no no Has cancer? Test positive? P(TP, C) yes yes 0.018 yes no 0.002 no yes 0.196 no no 0.784
• 10. Conditional Probability
• Diagnostic question: How likely do is cancer given a positive test?
Has cancer? Test positive? P(TP, C) yes yes 0.018 yes no 0.002 no yes 0.196 no no 0.784
• 11. Bayes Network
• We just encountered our first Bayes network:
Cancer Test positive P(cancer) and P(Test positive | cancer) is called the model Calculating P(Test positive) is called prediction Calculating P(Cancer | test positive) is called diagnostic reasoning
• 12. Bayes Network
• We just encountered our first Bayes network:
Cancer Test positive Cancer Test positive versus
• 13. Independence
• Independence
• What does this mean for our test?
• Dont take it!
Cancer Test positive
• 14. Independence
• Two variables are independent if:
• This says that their joint distribution factors into a product two simpler distributions
• This implies:
• We write:
• Independence is a simplifying modeling assumption
• Empirical joint distributions: at best close to independent
• 15. Example: Independence
• N fair, independent coin flips:
h 0.5 t 0.5 h 0.5 t 0.5 h 0.5 t 0.5
• 16. Example: Independence? T W P warm sun 0.4 warm rain 0.1 cold sun 0.2 cold rain 0.3 T W P warm sun 0.3 warm rain 0.2 cold sun 0.3 cold rain 0.2 T P warm 0.5 cold 0.5 W P sun 0.6 rain 0.4
• 17. Conditional Independence
• P(Toothache, Cavity, Catch)
• If I have a Toothache, a dental probe might be more likely to catch
• But: if I have a cavity, the probability that the probe catches doesn't depend on whether I have a toothache:
• P(+catch | +toothache, +cavity) = P(+catch | +cavity)
• The same independence holds if I don t have a cavity:
• P(+catch | +toothache, cavity) = P(+catch| cavity)
• Catch is conditionally independent of Toothache given Cavity:
• P(Catch | Toothache, Cavity) = P(Catch | Cavity)
• Equivalent conditional independence statements:
• P(Toothache | Catch , Cavity) = P(Toothache | Cavity)
• P(Toothache, Catch | Cavity) = P(Toothache | Cavity) P(Catch | Cavity)
• One can be derived from the other easily
• We write:
• 18. Bayes Network Representation Cavity Catch Toothache P(cavity) P(catch | cavity) P(toothache | cavity) 1 parameter 2 parameters 2 parameters Versus: 2 3 -1 = 7 parameters
• 19. A More Realistic Bayes Network
• 20. Example Bayes Network: Car
• 21. Graphical Model Notation
• Nodes: variables (with domains)
• Can be assigned (observed) or unassigned (unobserved)
• Arcs: interactions
• Indicate direct influence between variables
• Formally: encode conditional independence (more later)
• For now: imagine that arrows mean direct causation (they may not!)
• 22. Example: Coin Flips
• N independent coin flips
• No interactions between variables: absolute independence
X 1 X 2 X n
• 23. Example: Traffic
• Variables:
• R: It rains
• T: There is traffic
• Model 1: independence
• Model 2: rain causes traffic
• Why is an agent using model 2 better?
R T
• 24. Example: Alarm Network
• Variables
• B: Burglary
• A: Alarm goes off
• M: Mary calls
• J: John calls
• E: Earthquake!
B urglary E arthquake A larm J ohn calls M ary calls
• 25. Bayes Net Semantics
• A set of nodes, one per variable X
• A directed, acyclic graph
• A conditional distribution for each node
• A collection of distributions over X, one for each combination of parents values
• CPT: conditional probability table
• Description of a noisy causal process
A 1 X A n A Bayes net = Topology (graph) + Local Conditional Probabilities
• 26. Probabilities in BNs
• Bayes nets implicitly encode joint distributions
• As a product of local conditional distributions
• To see what probability a BN gives to a full assignment, multiply all the relevant conditionals together:
• Example:
• This lets us reconstruct any entry of the full joint
• Not every BN can represent every joint distribution
• The topology enforces certain conditional independencies
• 27. Example: Coin Flips X 1 X 2 X n Only distributions whose variables are absolutely independent can be represented by a Bayes net with no arcs. h 0.5 t 0.5 h 0.5 t 0.5 h 0.5 t 0.5
• 28. Example: Traffic R T +r 1/4 r 3/4 +r +t 3/4 t 1/4 r +t 1/2 t 1/2 R T joint +r +t 3/16 +r -t 1/16 -r +t 3/8 -r -t 3/8
• 29. Example: Alarm Network B urglary E arthqk A larm J ohn calls M ary calls How many parameters? 1 1 4 2 2 10
• 30. Example: Alarm Network B urglary E arthqk A larm J ohn calls M ary calls B P(B) +b 0.001 b 0.999 E P(E) +e 0.002 e 0.998 B E A P(A|B,E) +b +e +a 0.95 +b +e a 0.05 +b e +a 0.94 +b e a 0.06 b +e +a 0.29 b +e a 0.71 b e +a 0.001 b e a 0.999 A J P(J|A) +a +j 0.9 +a j 0.1 a +j 0.05 a j 0.95 A M P(M|A) +a +m 0.7 +a m 0.3 a +m 0.01 a m 0.99
• 31. Example: Alarm Network B urglary E arthquake A larm J ohn calls M ary calls
• 32. Bayes Nets
• A Bayes net is an
• efficient encoding
• of a probabilistic
• model of a domain
• Inference: given a fixed BN, what is P(X | e)?
• Representation: given a BN graph, what kinds of distributions can it encode?
• Modeling: what BN is most appropriate for a given domain?
• 33. Remainder of this Class
• Find Conditional (In)Dependencies
• Concept of d-separation
• 34. Causal Chains
• This configuration is a causal chain
• Is X independent of Z given Y?
• Evidence along the chain blocks the influence
X Y Z Yes! X: Low pressure Y: Rain Z: Traffic
• 35. Common Cause
• Another basic configuration: two effects of the same cause
• Are X and Z independent?
• Are X and Z independent given Y?
• Observing the cause blocks influence between effects.
X Y Z Yes! Y: Alarm X: John calls Z: Mary calls
• 36. Common Effect
• Last configuration: two causes of one effect (v-structures)
• Are X and Z independent?
• Yes: the ballgame and the rain cause traffic, but they are not correlated
• Still need to prove they must be (try it!)
• Are X and Z independent given Y?
• No: seeing traffic puts the rain and the ballgame in competition as explanation?
• This is backwards from the other cases
• Observing an effect activates influence between possible causes.
X Y Z X: Raining Z: Ballgame Y: Traffic
• 37. The General Case
• Any complex example can be analyzed using these three canonical cases
• General question: in a given BN, are two variables independent (given evidence)?
• Solution: analyze the graph
• 38. Reachability
• Attempt 1: Remove shaded nodes. If two nodes are still connected by an undirected path, they are not conditionally independent
• Almost works, but not quite
• Where does it break?
• Answer: the v-structure at T doesn t count as a link in a path unless active
R T B D L
• 39. Reachability (D-Separation)
• Question: Are X and Y conditionally independent given evidence vars {Z}?
• Yes, if X and Y separated by Z
• Look for active paths from X to Y
• No active paths = independence!
• A path is active if each triple is active:
• Causal chain A B C where B is unobserved (either direction)
• Common cause A B C where B is unobserved
• Common effect (aka v-structure)
• A B C where B or one of its descendents is observed
• All it takes to block a path is a single inactive segment
Active Triples Inactive Triples

• 41. Example R T B D L T Yes Yes Yes

• 47. Causality?
• When Bayes nets reflect the true causal patterns:
• Often simpler (nodes have fewer parents)
• Often easier to think about
• Often easier to elicit from experts
• BNs need not actually be causal
• Sometimes no causal net exists over the domain
• End up with arrows that reflect correlation, not causation
• What do the arrows really mean?
• Topology may happen to encode causal structure
• Topology only guaranteed to encode conditional independence
• 48. Summary
• Bayes network:
• Graphical representation of joint distributions
• Efficiently encode conditional independencies
• Reduce number of parameters from exponential to linear (in many cases)
