E-Book: Bayesian Networks & BayesiaLab — A Practical Introduction for Researchers
By Stefan Conrady and Dr. Lionel Jouffe
We released our first book on Bayesian networks and BayesiaLab at the 3rd Annual BayesiaLab Conference in Fairfax, Virginia, in October of 2015. Among BayesiaLab users, it soon became known simply as "the book" and served as their principal reference. For students of Bayesian networks, it emerged as a very popular textbook, a kind of Bayesian Networks 101.
However, with the rapid development of new features in BayesiaLab, it's been impossible to keep the book up to date with current screenshots, etc. The BayesiaLab user interface has also undergone a major redesign, and even the BayesiaLab-specific terminology has evolved since 2015. While working intermittently on drafts of a long-promised second edition, we turned our book into a "living document" that can be updated in sync with the software and the user manual.
The new version of the book is now embedded right here on our website. As a result, all the original cross-references in the original book have been translated into hyperlinks that can instantly take you to datasets, networks, videos, and other related learning resources.
Despite the ease by which you can jump from the book to the manual and tutorials, you can still follow the linear structure of a traditional book. Countless readers said they enjoyed reading it cover-to-cover, just like a novel.
