Andrew W. Moore Professor School of Coputer Science Carnegie Mellon Uniersity Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide Probability The world is a ery uncertain place 3 years of Artificial Intelligence and Database research danced around this fact And then a few AI researchers decided to use soe ideas fro the eighteenth century Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 2

2 What we re going to do We will reiew the fundaentals of probability. It s really going to be worth it In this lecture, you ll see an exaple of probabilistic analytics in action: Bayes Classifiers Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 3 Discrete Rando Variables A is a Boolean-alued rando ariable if A denotes an eent, and there is soe degree of uncertainty as to whether A occurs. Exaples A The US president in 223 will be ale A ou wake up toorrow with a headache A ou hae Ebola Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 4 2

3 Probabilities We write A as the fraction of possible worlds in which A is true We could at this point spend 2 hours on the philosophy of this. But we won t. Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 5 Visualizing A Eent space of all possible worlds Worlds in which A is true A Area of reddish oal Its area is Worlds in which A is False Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 6 3

7 These Axios are Not to be Trifled With There hae been attepts to do different ethodologies for uncertainty Fuzzy Logic Three-alued logic Depster-Shafer Non-onotonic reasoning But the axios of probability are the only syste with this property: If you gable using the you can t be unfairly exploited by an opponent using soe other syste [di Finetti 93] Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 3 Theores fro the Axios < A <, True, False A or B A + B - A and B Fro these we can proe: not A ~A -A How? Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 4 7

28 Where are we? We hae recalled the fundaentals of probability We hae becoe content with what JDs are and how to use the And we een know how to learn JDs fro data. Copyright Andrew W.

Input Attributes Regressor Prediction of real-alued output Test set Accuracy Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 58 29

33 Suary: The Good News We hae a way to learn a Density Estiator fro data. Density estiators can do any good things Can sort the records by probability, and thus spot weird records (anoaly detection Can do inference: E E2 Autoatic Doctor / Help Desk etc Ingredient for Bayes Classifiers (see later Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 65 Suary: The Bad News Density estiation by directly learning the joint is triial, indless and dangerous Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 66 33

34 Using a test set An independent test set with 96 cars has a worse log likelihood (actually it s a billion quintillion quintillion quintillion quintillion ties less likely.density estiators can oerfit. And the full joint density estiator is the oerfittiest of the all! Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 67 Oerfitting Density Estiators If this eer happens, it eans there are certain cobinations that we learn are ipossible R log Pˆ(testset M log Pˆ( xk M log Pˆ( xk M k k if for any k Pˆ( x M k R Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 68 34

35 Using a test set The only reason that our test set didn t score -infinity is that y code is hard-wired to always predict a probability of at least one in 2 We need Density Estiators that are less prone to oerfitting Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 69 Naïe Density Estiation The proble with the Joint Estiator is that it just irrors the training data. We need soething which generalizes ore usefully. The naïe odel generalizes strongly: Assue that each attribute is distributed independently of any of the other attributes. Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 7 35

36 Independently Distributed Data Let x[i] denote the i th field of record x. The independently distributed assuption says that for any i,, u u 2 u i- u i+ u M x[ i] x[] u, x[2] u2, Kx[ i ] ui, x[ i + ] ui+, Kx[ M ] u x[ i] Or in other words, x[i] is independent of {x[],x[2],..x[i-], x[i+], x[m]} This is often written as x[ i] { x[], x[2], K x[ i ], x[ i + ], Kx[ M ]} M Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 7 A note about independence Assue A and B are Boolean Rando Variables. Then A and B are independent if and only if A B A A and B are independent is often notated as A B Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 72 36

37 Independence Theores Assue A B A Then A^B Assue A B A Then B A A B B Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 73 Independence Theores Assue A B A Then ~A B Assue A B A Then A ~B ~A A Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 74 37

38 Multialued Independence For ultialued Rando Variables A and B, A B if and only if u, : A u B A u fro which you can then proe things like u, : A u B A u B u, : B A B Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 75 Back to Naïe Density Estiation Let x[i] denote the i th field of record x: Naïe DE assues x[i] is independent of {x[],x[2],..x[i-], x[i+], x[m]} Exaple: Suppose that each record is generated by randoly shaking a green dice and a red dice Dataset : A red alue, B green alue Dataset 2: A red alue, B su of alues Dataset 3: A su of alues, B difference of alues Which of these datasets iolates the naïe assuption?

39 Using the Naïe Distribution Once you hae a Naïe Distribution you can easily copute any row of the joint distribution. Suppose A, B, C and D are independently distributed. What is A^~B^C^~D? Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 77 Using the Naïe Distribution Once you hae a Naïe Distribution you can easily copute any row of the joint distribution. Suppose A, B, C and D are independently distributed. What is A^~B^C^~D? A ~B^C^~D ~B^C^~D A ~B^C^~D A ~B C^~D C^~D A ~B C^~D A ~B C ~D ~D A ~B C ~D Copyright Andrew W. Moore Slide 78 39

40 Naïe Distribution General Case Suppose x[], x[2], x[m] are independently distributed. M, x[2] u2, x[ M ] um x[ k] u k k x[] u K So if we hae a Naïe Distribution we can construct any row of the iplied Joint Distribution on deand. So we can do any inference But how do we learn a Naïe Density Estiator? Copyright Andrew W.
