Bayesian Learning • Provides practical learning algorithms – Naïve Bayes learning – Bayesian belief network learning – Combine prior knowledge (prior probabilities) • Provides foundations for machine learning – Evaluating learning algorithms – Guiding the design of new algorithms – Learning from models : meta learning

Bayesian Classification: Why? • Probabilistic learning: Calculate explicit probabilities for hypothesis, among the most practical approaches to certain types of learning problems • Incremental: Each training example can incrementally increase/decrease the probability that a hypothesis is correct. Prior knowledge can be combined with observed data. • Probabilistic prediction: Predict multiple hypotheses, weighted by their probabilities • Standard: Even when Bayesian methods are computationally intractable, they can provide a standard of optimal decision making against which other methods can be measured

Basic Formulas for Probabilities • Product Rule : probability P(AB) of a conjunction of two events A and B: • Sum Rule: probability of a disjunction of two events A and B: • Theorem of Total Probability : if events A 1, …. , An are mutually exclusive with

Basic Approach Bayes Rule: • • P(h) = prior probability of hypothesis h P(D) = prior probability of training data D P(h|D) = probability of h given D (posterior density ) P(D|h) = probability of D given h (likelihood of D given h) The Goal of Bayesian Learning: the most probable hypothesis given the training data (Maximum A Posteriori hypothesis )

An Example Does patient have cancer or not? A patient takes a lab test and the result comes back positive. The test returns a correct positive result in only 98% of the cases in which the disease is actually present, and a correct negative result in only 97% of the cases in which the disease is not present. Furthermore, . 008 of the entire population have this cancer.

MAP Learner For each hypothesis h in H, calculate the posterior probability Output the hypothesis hmap with the highest posterior probability Comments: Computational intensive Providing a standard for judging the performance of learning algorithms Choosing P(h) and P(D|h) reflects our prior knowledge about the learning task

Bayes Optimal Classifier • Question: Given new instance x, what is its most probable classification? • Hmap(x) is not the most probable classification! Example: Let P(h 1|D) =. 4, P(h 2|D) =. 3, P(h 3 |D) =. 3 Given new data x, we have h 1(x)=+, h 2(x) = -, h 3(x) = What is the most probable classification of x ? Bayes optimal classification: Example: P(h 1| D) =. 4, P(h 2|D) =. 3, P(h 3|D)=. 3, P(-|h 1)=0, P(-|h 2)=1, P(-|h 3)=1, P(+|h 1)=1 P(+|h 2)=0 P(+|h 3)=0

Naïve Bayes Learner Assume target function f: X-> V, where each instance x described by attributes . Most probable value of f(x) is: Naïve Bayes assumption: (attributes are conditionally independent)

Bayesian classification • The classification problem may be formalized using a-posteriori probabilities: • P(C|X) = prob. that the sample tuple X=

Estimating a-posteriori probabilities • Bayes theorem: P(C|X) = P(X|C)·P(C) / P(X) • P(X) is constant for all classes • P(C) = relative freq of class C samples • C such that P(C|X) is maximum = C such that P(X|C)·P(C) is maximum • Problem: computing P(X|C) is unfeasible!

Naïve Bayesian Classification • Naïve assumption: attribute independence P(x 1, …, xk|C) = P(x 1|C)·…·P(xk|C) • If i-th attribute is categorical: P(xi|C) is estimated as the relative freq of samples having value xi as i-th attribute in class C • If i-th attribute is continuous: P(xi|C) is estimated thru a Gaussian density function • Computationally easy in both cases

Naive Bayesian Classifier (II) • Given a training set, we can compute the probabilities

The independence hypothesis… • … makes computation possible • … yields optimal classifiers when satisfied • … but is seldom satisfied in practice, as attributes (variables) are often correlated. • Attempts to overcome this limitation: – Bayesian networks, that combine Bayesian reasoning with causal relationships between attributes – Decision trees, that reason on one attribute at the time, considering most important attributes first

Bayesian Belief Networks • Naïve Bayes assumption of conditional independence too restrictive • But it is intractable without some such assumptions • Bayesian Belief network (Bayesian net) describe conditional independence among subsets of variables (attributes): combining prior knowledge about dependencies among variables with observed training data. • Bayesian Net – Node = variables – Arc = dependency – DAG, with direction on arc representing causality

Bayesian Networks: Multi-variables with Dependency • Bayesian Belief network (Bayesian net) describe conditional independence among subsets of variables (attributes): combining prior knowledge about dependencies among variables with observed training data. • Bayesian Net – Node = variables and each variable has a finite set of mutually exclusive states – Arc = dependency – DAG, with direction on arc representing causality – To each variables A with parents B 1, …. , Bn there is attached a conditional probability table P (A | B 1, …. , Bn)
