Subject Headings: Probabilistic Graphical Model.
- Graphical models are a marriage between graph theory and probability theory
- They clarify the relationship between neural networks and related network-based models such as HMMs, MRFs, and Kalman lters
- Indeed, they can be used to give a fully probabilistic interpretation to many neural network architectures
- Some advantages of the graphical model point of view
- inference and learning are treated together
- supervised and unsupervised learning are merged seamlessly
- missing data handled nicely
- a focus on conditional independence and computational issues
- interpretability (if desired),
