Business intelligence, Knowledge Modelling, and Causal Analysis with Bayesian Belief Networks

This interesting and technical course has been designed to introduce and to understand the idea and logic behind Bayesian Causal Networks and their applicability in intelligence data analysis. The course looks at the Bayesian modelling tools and provides pointers for further investigating.

Bayesian Causal Networks combine graphical representation with causal modelling techniques and Bayesian probability theory to provide a useful technique for event modelling and forecasting.

Objective

 By the end f the course participants will have a complete understanding of the Bayesian network paradigm plus real practical skills for research applications

Course Content

  1. Coaching on Bayesian networks

    • Examples of probabilistic reasoning
    • Recap of basics of probability theory
    • Apperance and the langauge of Bayesian networks
    •  examples of Real applications
  2. Practical exercises in knowledge modelling

  3. Technical education on Bayesian networks

    • Network learning (supervised learning, unsupervised learning, data clustering, variable clustering, Probabilistic Structural Equation Models)
    • Performance evaluation
    • Analysis and simulation
    • Extensions (influence diagram, dynamic Bayesian networks)
  4. Practical data mining and analytics exercises

Methodology

  • Trainer presentation and facilitation
  • Exercises
