Preventing Unnecessary Groundings in the Lifted Dynamic Junction Tree Algorithm
The lifted dynamic junction tree algorithm (LDJT) answers filtering and prediction queries efficiently for probabilistic relational temporal models by building and then reusing a first-order cluster representation of a knowledge base for multiple queries and time steps. Unfortunately, a non-ideal elimination order can lead to groundings. We extend LDJT (i) to identify unnecessary groundings and (ii) to prevent groundings by delaying eliminations through changes in a temporal first-order cluster representation. The extended version of LDJT answers multiple temporal queries orders of magnitude faster than the original version.
