Bayesian knowledge bases, engineering, verification, and validation
Bayesian knowledge bases, engineering, verification, and validation focuses on the fundamental problem of probabilistic modeling of knowledge in order to represent and reason about information in a theoretically sound manner. The world is replete with issues such as incompleteness, impreciseness, and inconsistency which makes the task of capturing even everyday tasks, processes, and activities very difficult, let alone trying to capture that of decision-making by experts or other complex phenomena. Improperly modeling uncertainty leads to numerous anomalies in reasoning as well as increased computational difficulties.
