Three-Day Advanced Course:
Artificial Intelligence with Bayesian Networks & BayesiaLab
North Carolina Biotechnology Center
15 T.W. Alexander Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
October 14–16, 2019, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. (daily)
Take your BayesiaLab certification to the next level by joining the advanced BayesiaLab course. Completing this course brings you to the leading edge of applied research with Bayesian networks. Dr. Lionel Jouffe, CEO of Bayesia, will teach this three-day course.
The class is limited to a maximum of 15 participants in order to allow for one-on-one coaching during the hands-on exercises with BayesiaLab. This small-group format provides a productive yet informal learning environment that facilitates a lively dialog between participants from a wide range of backgrounds.
Participants in the Advanced Course are required to have completed the Introductory Course on a previous date (see course calendar).

"I would absolutely recommend this course as a thorough and in-depth introduction to Bayesian Networks and the BayesiaLab package. The small class sizes also contributed to an enjoyable and engaging learning experience."—Brian Potter, Infotools (Introductory Course in Melbourne, November 2015).
"This is one of the best
"Overall, this training was outstanding. Lionel is a gifted teacher, and it helps that you are showcasing a
“A must-take course for anyone looking to leverage advanced Bayesian network techniques in virtually any domain.”—Alex Cosmas, Chief Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton (Introductory Course in Los Angeles, June 2011).
“The BayesiaLab software is impressive in its sophistication and multi-faceted abilities as a decision support tool. I had been using it primarily as a modeling tool for deductive analysis. Taking this class opened my eyes to BayesiaLab's incredible data-mining abilities. If you are looking for something that will provide a totally new angle on business decision problems, this is it!”—Michael Ryall,
"This class can only be described as eye-opening, the tool as terrific. Some of the best instruction for the shortest period of time I’ve ever received. A seriously terrific job.” —Beau Martin, President of American Choice Modeling (Introductory Course in Chicago, July 2013).
