Constructor: A System for the Induction of Probabilistic Models
The probabilistic network technology is a knowledgebased technique which focuses on reasoning under uncertainty. Because of its well defined semantics and solid theoretical foundations, the technology is finding increasing application in fields such as medical diagnosis, machine vision, military situation assessment , petroleum exploration, and information retrieval. However, like other knowledge-based techniques, acquiring the qualitative and quantitative information needed to build these networks can be highly labor-intensive. CONSTRUCTQR integrates techniques and concepts from probabilistic networks, artificial intelligence, and statistics in order to induce Markov networks (i.e., undirected probabilistic networks). The resulting networks are useful both qualitatively for concept organization and quantitatively for the assessment of new data. The primary goal of CONSTRUCTOR is to find qualitative structure from data. CONSTRUCTOR finds structure by first, modeling each feature in a ...
