3 Summing out variables Our second operation: we can sum out a variable, say X 1 with domain {v 1,..., v k }, from factor f(x 1,..., X j ), resulting in a factor on X 2,..., X j defined by: ( X 1 f)(x 2,..., X j ) = f(x 1 = v 1,..., X j ) + + f(x 1 = v k,..., X j ) Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Variable Elimination Example CPSC 322 Lecture 29, Slide 3
4 Multiplying factors Our third operation: factors can be multiplied together. The product of factor f 1 (X, Y ) and f 2 (Y, Z), where Y are the variables in common, is the factor (f 1 f 2 )(X, Y, Z) defined by: (f 1 f 2 )(X, Y, Z) = f 1 (X, Y )f 2 (Y, Z).

5 Probability of a conjunction Suppose the variables of the belief network are X 1,..., X n. {X 1,..., X n } = {Q} {Y 1,..., Y j } {Z 1,..., k } Q is the query variable {Y 1,..., Y j } is the set of observed variables {Z 1,..., k } is the rest of the variables, that are neither queried nor observed What we want to compute: P (Q, Y 1 = v 1,..., Y j = v j ) We can compute P (Q, Y 1 = v 1,..., Y j = v j ) by summing out each variable Z 1,..., Z k We sum out these variables one at a time the order in which we do this is called our elimination ordering. P (Q, Y 1 = v 1,..., Y j = v j ) = Z k Z 1 P (X 1,..., X n ) Y1 = v 1,...,Y j = v j. Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Variable Elimination Example CPSC 322 Lecture 29, Slide 5
6 Probability of a conjunction What we know: the factors P (X i px i ). Using the chain rule and the definition of a belief network, we can write P (X 1,..., X n ) as n i=1 P (X i px i ). Thus: P (Q, Y 1 = v 1,..., Y j = v j ) = Z k P (X 1,..., X n ) Y1 = v 1,...,Y j = v j. Z 1 = n P (X i px i ) Y1 = v 1,...,Y j = v j. Z k Z 1 i=1 Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Variable Elimination Example CPSC 322 Lecture 29, Slide 6
7 Computing sums of products Computation in belief networks thus reduces to computing the sums of products. It takes 14 multiplications or additions to evaluate the expression ab + ac + ad + aeh + afh + agh. How can this expression be evaluated more efficiently? factor out the a and then the h giving a(b + c + d + h(e + f + g)) this takes only 7 multiplications or additions ( How can we compute n Z 1 i=1 P (X i px i ) efficiently? Factor out those terms that don t involve Z 1 : )( ) P (X i px i ) P (X i px i ) i Z 1 {X i} px i (terms that do not involve Z i ) Z 1 i Z 1 {X i} px i (terms that involve Z i ) Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Variable Elimination Example CPSC 322 Lecture 29, Slide 7

9 Summing out a variable efficiently To sum out a variable Z j from a product f 1,..., f k of factors: Partition the factors into those that don t contain Z j, say f 1,..., f i, those that contain Z j, say f i+1,..., f k We know: f 1 f k = (f 1 f i ) f i+1 f k. Z j Zj ( ) f Zj i+1 f k is a new factor; let s call it f. Now we have: Z j f 1 f k = f 1 f i f. Store f explicitly, and discard f i+1,..., f k. Now we ve summed out Z j. Reasoning Under Uncertainty: Variable Elimination Example CPSC 322 Lecture 29, Slide 9
10 Variable elimination algorithm To compute P (Q Y 1 = v 1... Y j = v j ): Construct a factor for each conditional probability. Set the observed variables to their observed values. For each of the other variables Z i {Z 1,..., Z k }, sum out Z i Multiply the remaining factors. Normalize by dividing the resulting factor f(q) by Q f(q).
