Socially significant behavior model with hidden variables is suggested as means for processing unreliable data. Two models with hidden variables are considered: the one with synthesized structure and the other with structure defined expertly. Both models are learned using automatically generated set of data. The models are compared with each other and with the original socially significant behavior model.
