Stress testing incorporating causal dependency [22]

Go to: Summary | Previous | Next   
Bullet points include: Graphs: set of points (nodes), here representing random variables, connected by lines Acyclical: cannot get back to same node by following arrows connecting other nodes Directed: indicates causal link between the two entities Note, Bayes theorem indicates all links have two-way association The direction establishes ‘our’ view of causality, identifying parent and child nodes Relevant because a Bayesian net assumes that, given the parent nodes of X, node X is conditionally independent of all the nodes that are not its own descendants
