Probabilistic Reasoning in Multiagent Systems: A Graphical Models Approach

Buy
This book investigates the opportunities in building intelligent decision support systems offered by multiagent distributed probabilistic reasoning.

Probabilistic reasoning with graphical models, also known as Bayesian networks or belief networks, has become an active field of research and practice in artificial intelligence, operations research, and statistics in the past two decades. The success of this technique in modeling intelligent decision support systems under the centralized and singe-agent paradigm has been striking. In this book, the author extends graphical dependence models to the distributed and multiagent paradigm. He identifies the major technical challenges involved in such an endeavor and presents the results from a decade’s research.

The framework developed in the book allows distributed representation of uncertain knowledge on a large and complex environment embedded in multiple cooperative agents and effective, exact, and distributed probabilistic inference.

Debugging Applications
Debugging Applications

Two issues make debugging in the Microsoft Windows environment difficult and time consuming. The first issue is that debugging has always been a self-taught skill—you've basically been on your own to figure it out. Even if you have a computer science degree, I'm willing to bet that you never took a single college class dedicated to...

Intervening in the Brain: Changing Psyche and Society (Ethics of Science and Technology Assessment)

The wealth of insights into the brain’s functioning gained by neuroscience in recent years led to the development of new possibilities for intervening in the brain such as neurotransplantation, neural prostheses and brain stimulation techniques. Moreover, new and safer classes of psychopharmaceutical drugs lend themselves to...

Tragic Design: The Impact of Bad Product Design and How to Fix It
Tragic Design: The Impact of Bad Product Design and How to Fix It

Bad design is everywhere, and its cost is much higher than we think. In this thought-provoking book, authors Jonathan Shariat and Cynthia Savard Saucier explain how poorly designed products can anger, sadden, exclude, and even kill people who use them. The designers responsible certainly didn’t intend harm, so what can you do...
