A graphical model or probabilistic graphical model PGM or structured probabilistic model is a probabilistic model for which a graph expresses the conditional dependence structure between random variables. They are commonly used in probability theory , statistics —particularly Bayesian statistics —and machine learning. Generally, probabilistic graphical models use a graph-based representation as the foundation for encoding a distribution over a multi-dimensional space and a graph that is a compact or factorized representation of a set of independences that hold in the specific distribution. Two branches of graphical representations of distributions are commonly used, namely, Bayesian networks and Markov random fields.

This course is part of the Probabilistic Graphical Models Specialization. Probabilistic graphical models PGMs are a rich framework for encoding probability distributions over complex domains: joint multivariate distributions over large numbers of random variables that interact with each other.

These representations sit at the intersection of statistics and computer science, relying on concepts from probability theory, graph algorithms, machine learning, and more. They are the basis for the state-of-the-art methods in a wide variety of applications, such as medical diagnosis, image understanding, speech recognition, natural language processing, and many, many more.

They are also a foundational tool in formulating many machine learning problems. This course is the first in a sequence of three.

It describes the two basic PGM representations: Bayesian Networks, which rely on a directed graph; and Markov networks, which use an undirected graph. The course discusses both the theoretical properties of these representations as well as their use in practice. The highly recommended honors track contains several hands-on assignments on how to represent some real-world problems.

The course also presents some important extensions beyond the basic PGM representation, which allow more complex models to be encoded compactly. This module provides an overall introduction to probabilistic graphical models, and defines a few of the key concepts that will be used later in the course.

In this module, we define the Bayesian network representation and its semantics. We also analyze the relationship between the graph structure and the independence properties of a distribution represented over that graph. Finally, we give some practical tips on how to model a real-world situation as a Bayesian network.

In many cases, we need to model distributions that have a recurring structure. In this module, we describe representations for two such situations. One is temporal scenarios, where we want to model a probabilistic structure that holds constant over time; here, we use Hidden Markov Models, or, more generally, Dynamic Bayesian Networks. The other is aimed at scenarios that involve multiple similar entities, each of whose properties is governed by a similar model; here, we use Plate Models.

A table-based representation of a CPD in a Bayesian network has a size that grows exponentially in the number of parents. There are a variety of other form of CPD that exploit some type of structure in the dependency model to allow for a much more compact representation.

Here we describe a number of the ones most commonly used in practice. In this module, we describe Markov networks also called Markov random fields : probabilistic graphical models based on an undirected graph representation.

We discuss the representation of these models and their semantics. We also analyze the independence properties of distributions encoded by these graphs, and their relationship to the graph structure. We compare these independencies to those encoded by a Bayesian network, giving us some insight on which type of model is more suitable for which scenarios.

In this module, we discuss the task of decision making under uncertainty. We describe the framework of decision theory, including some aspects of utility functions.

We then talk about how decision making scenarios can be encoded as a graphical model called an Influence Diagram, and how such models provide insight both into decision making and the value of information gathering. This module provides an overview of graphical model representations and some of the real-world considerations when modeling a scenario as a graphical model. It also includes the course final exam.

Overall very good quality content. Audio quality for the classes could also be improved. The lecture was a bit too compact and unsystematic. However, if you also do a lot of reading of the textbook, you can learn a lot.

Besides, the Quiz and Programming task are of high qualities. Koller did a great job communicating difficult material in an accessible manner. Thanks to her for starting Coursera and offering this advanced course so that we can all learn The course was deep, and well-taught.

This is not a spoon-feeding course like some others. The only downside were some "mechanical" problems e. Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment.

## Probabilistic Graphical Models 1: Representation

Recent years have seen a rapid expansion of the model space explored in statistical phylogenetics, emphasizing the need for new approaches to statistical model representation and software development. Clear communication and representation of the chosen model is crucial for: i reproducibility of an analysis, ii model development, and iii software design. Graphical modeling is a unifying framework that has gained in popularity in the statistical literature in recent years. The core idea is to break complex models into conditionally independent distributions. The strength lies in the comprehensibility, flexibility, and adaptability of this formalism, and the large body of computational work based on it. Graphical models are well-suited to teach statistical models, to facilitate communication among phylogeneticists and in the development of generic software for simulation and statistical inference.

### Probabilistic Graphical Model Representation in Phylogenetics

Probabilistic Graphical Models. A graphical model is a probabilistic model, where the conditional dependencies between the random variables is specified via a graph. Graphical models provide a flexible framework for modeling large collection of variables with complex interactions, as evidenced by their wide domain of application, including for example machine learning, computer vision, speech and computational biology.

Там не окажется никакого Клауса, но Беккер понимал, что клиенты далеко не всегда указывают свои подлинные имена. - Хм-м, извините, - произнесла женщина. - Не нахожу. Как, вы сказали, имя девушки, которую нанял ваш брат. - Рыжеволосая, - сказал Беккер, уклоняясь от ответа. - Рыжеволосая? - переспросила. Пауза.
