A Bayesian belief network is a graphical representation of a probabilistic dependency model. It consists of a set of interconnected nodes, where each node represents a variable in the dependency model and the connecting arcs represent the causal relationships between these variables. Each node or variable may take one of a number of possible states or values. The belief in, or certainty of, each of these states is determined from the belief in each possible state of every node directly connected to it and its relationship with each of these nodes. The belief in each state of a node is updated whenever the belief in each state of any directly connected node changes. … Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) google
