Bayesian Nets and Causality: philosophical and computational foundations

Jon Williamson
Oxford University Press (23 December 2004)

Bayesian nets are widely used in artificial intelligence as a calculus for causal reasoning, enabling machines to make predictions, perform diagnoses, take decisions and even to discover causal relationships. This book, aimed at researchers and graduate students in computer science, mathematics and philosophy, brings together two important research topics: how to automate reasoning in an artificial intelligence, and the nature of causality and probability in philosophy.
