1 Lecture 4 Learning Bayesian belief networks Milos Hauskrecht 5329 Sennott Square Administration Midterm: Monday, March 7, 2003 In class Closed book Material covered by Wednesday, March 2, including learning parameters of the BBNs but not the structure learning Last year midterm is posted on the web No new homework

2 Learning probability distribution Basic settings: A set of random variables = {, 2, K, n} A model of the distribution over variables in with parameters Θ Data D = D, D,.., D } { 2 N Obective: find parameters Θˆ that describe the data the best Learning Bayesian belief networks: parameterizations as defined by the structure of network Learning of BBN Learning. Learning of parameters of conditional probabilities Learning of the network structure Variables: Observable values present in every data sample Hidden they values are never observed in data Missing values values sometimes present, sometimes not Next: All variables are observable. Learning of parameters of BBN 2. Learning of the model (BBN structure

3 Learning of parameters of BBN Idea: decompose the estimation problem for the full oint over a large number of variables to a set of smaller estimation problems corresponding to parent-variable conditionals. Example: Assume A,E,B are binary with rue, alse values B A 4 estimation problems E A B=,E= A B=,E= A B,E A B=,E= A B=,E= Assumption that enables the decomposition: parameters of conditional distributions are independent Estimates of parameters of BBN wo assumptions that permit the decomposition: Sample independence D Θ, ξ = Θ, ξ u= Parameter independence N D u n i Θ D, ξ = θ D, ξ q i= = Parameters of each conditional (one for every assignment of values to parent variables can be learned independently

4 Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Example:?? HWBC Pneum Pn???? ever Palen Pneum ever Pneum Pneum??? Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Data D (different patient cases: Pal ev Cou HWB Pneu ever

5 Estimates of parameters of BBN Much like multiple coin toss or roll of a dice problems. A smaller learning problem corresponds to the learning of exactly one conditional distribution Example: ever = Problem: How to pick the data to learn? Estimates of parameters of BBN Much like multiple coin toss or roll of a dice problems. A smaller learning problem corresponds to the learning of exactly one conditional distribution Example: ever = Problem: How to pick the data to learn? Answer:. Select data points with = (ignore the rest 2. ocus on (select only values of the random variable defining the distribution (ever 3. Learn the parameters of the conditional the same way as we learned the parameters of the biased coin or dice

6 Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Learn: ever = Step : Select data points with = Pal ev Cou HWB Pneu ever Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Learn: Step : ever = Ignore the rest Pal ev Cou HWB Pneu ever

7 Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Learn: ever = Step 2: Select values of the random variable defining the distribution of ever Pal ev Cou HWB Pneu ever Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Learn: ever = Step 2: Ignore the rest ev ever

8 Learning of BBN parameters. Example. Learn: ever = Step 3a: Learning the ML estimate ev ever ever = Learning of BBN parameters. Bayesian learning. Learn: ever = Step 3b: Learning the Bayesian estimate Assume the prior ev θ ever = ~ Beta(3,4 ever Posterior: ~ Beta(6,6 θ ever =

9 Naïve Bayes model A special (simple Bayesian belief network used as a generative classifier model Class variable Y Attributes are independent given Y x Y = i, Θ = x Learning: ML, Bayesian estimates of parameters Classification: given x we need to determine the class Choose the class with the maximum posterior Y = i x, Θ = k n = = Y = i, Θ Y = i Θ x Y = i, Θ Y = Θ x Y =, Θ Class Y 2.. n Naïve Bayes with Gaussians distributions Generative classification model, Y. Priors on classes Y p ( Y =, p ( Y = 2, p ( Y = 3,... Y Before: Joint class conditional densities (for x p ( x µ, Σ = exp ( x µ ( / 2 / 2 Σ x µ d 2 (2π Σ p (Y Now: Naïve Bayes - independent class conditional densities Y 2 xi µ i, σ i = exp ( x 2 i µ i Y (2π σ i 2σ i Y 2.. n

10 Naïve Bayes with Gaussians distributions How to learn the generative model, Y. Priors on classes p ( Y =, p ( Y = 2, p ( Y = 3,...? 2. Class conditional densities 2 xi µ i, σ i = exp ( x 2 i µ i (2π σ i 2σ i Y 2.. Y n Model selection BBN has two components: Structure of the network (models conditional independences A set of parameters (conditional child-parent distributions We already know how to learn the parameters for the fixed structure But how to learn the structure of the BBN? Assumption: All variables are observable in the dataset

11 Learning the structure Criteria we can choose to score the structure S Marginal likelihood maximize P ( D S, ξ ξ - represents the prior knowledge Posterior probability maximize P ( S D, ξ P ( S D, ξ = P ( D S, ξ P ( S P ( D ξ ξ How to compute marginal likelihood P ( D S, ξ? Learning of BBNs Notation: i ranges over all possible variables i=,..,n =,..,q ranges over all possible parent combinations k=,..,r ranges over all possible variable values Θ - parameters of the BBN θ is a vector of θ k representing parameters of the conditional r probability distribution; such that θk = Nk N k = k = - a number of instances in the dataset where parents of variable i take on values and i has value k r = N k = r k = k - prior counts (parameters of Beta and Dirichlet priors k

12 Marginal likelihood Integrate over all possible parameter settings Θ P ( D S, ξ = D S, Θ, ξ Θ S, ξ dθ Using the assumption of parameter and sample independence P ( D S, ξ = n qi r i k k i = = Γ( + N k = Γ( k Γ( We can use log-likelihood score instead log D S, ξ = Γ( + N n qi r Γ( i Γ( k + N k log + log = = Γ( + N = Γ( i Score is decomposable along variables!!! k k rick to compute the marginal likelihood Integrate over all possible parameter settings Posterior of parameters, given data and the structure Gives the solution Θ P ( D ξ = D Θ, ξ Θ ξ dθ D Θ, ξ Θ ξ Θ D, ξ = D ξ rick D Θ, ξ Θ ξ D ξ = Θ D, ξ D ξ = n qi r i k k i= = Γ( + N k = Γ( k Γ( Γ( + N

13 Learning the structure Likelihood of data for the BBN (structure and parameters D Θ, ξ measures the goodness of fit of the BBN to data Marginal likelihood (for the structure only P ( D S, ξ Does not measure only a goodness of fit. It is: different for structures of different complexity Incorporates preferences towards simpler structures, implements Occam s razor!!!! Occam s Razor Why there is a preference towards simpler structures? Rewrite marginal likelihood as D S, ξ = We know that Θ Θ D S, Θ, ξ Θ S, ξ dθ Θ Θ S, ξ dθ Θ ξ dθ = Interpretation: in more complex structures there are more ways how parameters can be set badly he numerator: count of good assignments he denominator: count of all assignments

14 Approximations of probabilistic scores Approximations of the marginal likelihood and posterior scores Information based measures Akaike criterion Bayesian information criterion (BIC Minimum description length (MDL Reflect the tradeoff between the fit to data and preference towards simpler structures Example: Akaike criterion. Maximize: score( S = log D ΘML, ξ compl(s Bayesian information criterion (BIC Maximize: score( S = log D ΘML, ξ compl(s logn 2 Optimizing the structure inding the best structure is a combinatorial optimization problem A good feature: the score is decomposable along variables: n q Γ Γ + = i r ( + i ( N k k log P ( D S, ξ log log i = = Γ ( + N k = Γ ( k Algorithm idea: Search the space of structures using local changes (additions and deletions of a link Advantage: we do not have to compute the whole score from scratch Recompute the partial score for the affected variable

15 Optimizing the structure. Algorithms Greedy search Start from structure with no links Add a link that yields the best score improvement Metropolis algorithm (with simulated annealing Local additions and deletions Avoids being trapped in local optimal
