Evidence Propagation

Part of the Texts in Computer Science book series (TCS)


After having discussed efficient representations for expert and domain knowledge, we intent to exploit them to draw inferences when new information (evidence) becomes known. The objective is to propagate the evidence through the underlying network to reach all relevant attributes. Obviously, the graph structure will play an important role.
