**Why learning? Knowledge acquisition bottleneck**

Knowledge acquisition is an expensive process Often we don’t have an expert Data is cheap Amount of available information growing rapidly Learning allows us to construct models from raw data

**Why Learn Bayesian Networks?**

Conditional independencies & graphical language capture structure of many real-world distributions Graph structure provides much insight into domain Allows “knowledge discovery” Learned model can be used for many tasks Supports all the features of probabilistic learning Model selection criteria Dealing with missing data & hidden variables

**Overview Introduction Parameter Estimation Likelihood function**

Bayesian estimation Model Selection Structure Discovery Incomplete Data Learning from Structured Data

14
Learning Parameters Training data has the form: E B A C

15
**Likelihood Function Assume i.i.d. samples Likelihood function is E B A**

16
Likelihood Function By definition of network, we get E B A C

17
Likelihood Function Rewriting terms, we get E B A C =

18
**General Bayesian Networks**

Generalizing for any Bayesian network: Decomposition Independent estimation problems

19
**Likelihood Function: Multinomials**

The likelihood for the sequence H,T, T, H, H is 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1 L( :D) Probability of kth outcome Count of kth outcome in D General case:

20
Bayesian Inference Represent uncertainty about parameters using a probability distribution over parameters, data Learning using Bayes rule Likelihood Prior Posterior Probability of data

21
**Bayesian Inference Represent Bayesian distribution as Bayes net**

The values of X are independent given P(x[m] | ) = Bayesian prediction is inference in this network X[1] X[2] X[m] Observed data

22
**Example: Binomial Data**

Prior: uniform for in [0,1] P( |D) the likelihood L( :D) (NH,NT ) = (4,1) MLE for P(X = H ) is 4/5 = 0.8 Bayesian prediction is 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1

23
**Dirichlet Priors Recall that the likelihood function is**

Dirichlet prior with hyperparameters 1,…,K the posterior has the same form, with hyperparameters 1+N 1,…,K +N K

24
**Dirichlet Priors - Example**

5 4.5 Dirichlet(heads, tails) 4 3.5 3 P(heads) Dirichlet(5,5) 2.5 Dirichlet(0.5,0.5) 2 Dirichlet(2,2) 1.5 Dirichlet(1,1) 1 0.5 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1 heads

25
**Dirichlet Priors (cont.)**

If P() is Dirichlet with hyperparameters 1,…,K Since the posterior is also Dirichlet, we get

26
**Bayesian Nets & Bayesian Prediction**

X X[1] X[2] X[M] X[M+1] Observed data Plate notation Y[1] Y[2] Y[M] Y[M+1] Y|X m X[m] Y[m] Query Priors for each parameter group are independent Data instances are independent given the unknown parameters

27
**Bayesian Nets & Bayesian Prediction**

Y|X X X[1] X[2] X[M] Y[1] Y[2] Y[M] Observed data We can also “read” from the network: Complete data posteriors on parameters are independent Can compute posterior over parameters separately!

28
**Learning Parameters: Summary**

Scoring function Structure search Structure Discovery Incomplete Data Learning from Structured Data

31
**Why Struggle for Accurate Structure?**

Earthquake Alarm Set Sound Burglary Truth Missing an arc Adding an arc Earthquake Alarm Set Sound Burglary Earthquake Alarm Set Sound Burglary Cannot be compensated for by fitting parameters Wrong assumptions about domain structure Increases the number of parameters to be estimated Wrong assumptions about domain structure

32
Scorebased Learning Define scoring function that evaluates how well a structure matches the data E, B, A <Y,N,N> <Y,Y,Y> <N,N,Y> <N,Y,Y> . E E B E A A B A B Search for a structure that maximizes the score

33
**Likelihood Score for Structure**

Mutual information between Xi and its parents Larger dependence of Xi on Pai higher score Adding arcs always helps I(X; Y) I(X; {Y,Z}) Max score attained by fully connected network Overfitting: A bad idea…

34
**Bayesian Score Likelihood score: Bayesian approach:**

Deal with uncertainty by assigning probability to all possibilities Max likelihood params Marginal Likelihood Prior over parameters Likelihood

35
**Marginal Likelihood: Multinomials**

Fortunately, in many cases integral has closed form P() is Dirichlet with hyperparameters 1,…,K D is a dataset with sufficient statistics N1,…,NK Then

36
**Marginal Likelihood: Bayesian Networks**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Network structure determines form of marginal likelihood X H T H T Y H T H T Network 1: Two Dirichlet marginal likelihoods P( ) X Y Integral over X Integral over Y

37
**Marginal Likelihood: Bayesian Networks**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Network structure determines form of marginal likelihood X H T H T Y H T H T T H Network 2: Three Dirichlet marginal likelihoods P( ) X Y Integral over X Integral over Y|X=H Integral over Y|X=T

38
**Marginal Likelihood for Networks**

The marginal likelihood has the form: Dirichlet marginal likelihood for multinomial P(Xi | pai) N(..) are counts from the data (..) are hyperparameters for each family given G

39
**Bayesian Score: Asymptotic Behavior**

Fit dependencies in empirical distribution Complexity penalty As M (amount of data) grows, Increasing pressure to fit dependencies in distribution Complexity term avoids fitting noise Asymptotic equivalence to MDL score Bayesian score is consistent Observed data eventually overrides prior

40
**Structure Search as Optimization**

Input: Training data Scoring function Set of possible structures Output: A network that maximizes the score Key Computational Property: Decomposability: score(G) = score ( family of X in G )

Elegant math we can solve the optimization problem Sparse parameterization avoid overfitting

42
**Learning Trees Let p(i) denote parent of Xi**

We can write the Bayesian score as Score = sum of edge scores + constant Improvement over “empty” network Score of “empty” network

43
**Learning Trees Set w(ji) =Score( Xj Xi ) - Score(Xi)**

Find tree (or forest) with maximal weight Standard max spanning tree algorithm — O(n2 log n) Theorem: This procedure finds tree with max score

44
Beyond Trees When we consider more complex network, the problem is not as easy Suppose we allow at most two parents per node A greedy algorithm is no longer guaranteed to find the optimal network In fact, no efficient algorithm exists Theorem: Finding maximal scoring structure with at most k parents per node is NP-hard for k > 1

45
**Heuristic Search Define a search space:**

search states are possible structures operators make small changes to structure Traverse space looking for high-scoring structures Search techniques: Greedy hill-climbing Best first search Simulated Annealing ...

46
**Local Search Start with a given network empty network best tree**

a random network At each iteration Evaluate all possible changes Apply change based on score Stop when no modification improves score

47
**Heuristic Search Typical operations:**

D Add C D S C E D To update score after local change, only re-score families that changed score = S({C,E} D) - S({E} D) Reverse C E Delete C E S C E D S C E D

48
**Learning in Practice: Alarm domain**

2 Structure known, fit params 1.5 Learn both structure & params KL Divergence to true distribution 1 0.5 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 3000 3500 4000 4500 5000 #samples

49
**Local Search: Possible Pitfalls**

Local search can get stuck in: Local Maxima: All one-edge changes reduce the score Plateaux: Some one-edge changes leave the score unchanged Standard heuristics can escape both Random restarts TABU search Simulated annealing

50
**Improved Search: Weight Annealing**

Standard annealing process: Take bad steps with probability exp(score/t) Probability increases with temperature Weight annealing: Take uphill steps relative to perturbed score Perturbation increases with temperature Score(G|D) G

51
**Perturbing the Score Perturb the score by reweighting instances**

Each weight sampled from distribution: Mean = 1 Variance temperature Instances sampled from “original” distribution … but perturbation changes emphasis Benefit: Allows global moves in the search space

52
**Weight Annealing: ICU Alarm network**

Cumulative performance of 100 runs of annealed structure search True structure Learned params Annealed search Greedy hill-climbing

53
**Structure Search: Summary**

Discrete optimization problem In some cases, optimization problem is easy Example: learning trees In general, NP-Hard Need to resort to heuristic search In practice, search is relatively fast (~100 vars in ~2-5 min): Decomposability Sufficient statistics Adding randomness to search is critical

54
**Overview Introduction Parameter Estimation Model Selection**

Structure Discovery Incomplete Data Learning from Structured Data

55
**Structure Discovery Task: Discover structural properties**

Is there a direct connection between X & Y Does X separate between two “subsystems” Does X causally effect Y Example: scientific data mining Disease properties and symptoms Interactions between the expression of genes

56
**Discovering Structure**

P(G|D) E R B A C Current practice: model selection Pick a single high-scoring model Use that model to infer domain structure

57
**Discovering Structure**

P(G|D) E R B A C E R B A C E R B A C E R B A C E R B A C Problem Small sample size many high scoring models Answer based on one model often useless Want features common to many models

58
**Bayesian Approach Posterior distribution over structures**

Estimate probability of features Edge XY Path X… Y … Bayesian score for G Feature of G, e.g., XY Indicator function for feature f

59
**MCMC over Networks Cannot enumerate structures, so sample structures**

MCMC Sampling Define Markov chain over BNs Run chain to get samples from posterior P(G | D) Possible pitfalls: Huge (superexponential) number of networks Time for chain to converge to posterior is unknown Islands of high posterior, connected by low bridges

60
**ICU Alarm BN: No Mixing 500 instances: The runs clearly do not mix**

cuurent sample Score of MCMC Iteration

61
**Probability estimates highly variable, nonrobust**

Effects of Non-Mixing Two MCMC runs over same 500 instances Probability estimates for edges for two runs True BN Random start True BN Probability estimates highly variable, nonrobust

62
**Fixed Ordering Suppose that We know the ordering of variables**

say, X1 > X2 > X3 > X4 > … > Xn parents for Xi must be in X1,…,Xi-1 Limit number of parents per nodes to k Intuition: Order decouples choice of parents Choice of Pa(X7) does not restrict choice of Pa(X12) Upshot: Can compute efficiently in closed form Likelihood P(D | ) Feature probability P(f | D, ) 2k•n•log n networks

63
**Our Approach: Sample Orderings**

We can write Sample orderings and approximate MCMC Sampling Define Markov chain over orderings Run chain to get samples from posterior P( | D)

64
**Mixing with MCMC-Orderings**

4 runs on ICU-Alarm with 500 instances fewer iterations than MCMC-Nets approximately same amount of computation Process appears to be mixing! cuurent sample Score of MCMC Iteration

65
**Probability estimates very robust**

Mixing of MCMC runs Two MCMC runs over same instances Probability estimates for edges 500 instances 1000 instances Probability estimates very robust

66
**Application: Gene expression**

Input: Measurement of gene expression under different conditions Thousands of genes Hundreds of experiments Output: Models of gene interaction Uncover pathways

**Overview Introduction Parameter Estimation Model Selection**

Structure Discovery Incomplete Data Parameter estimation Structure search Learning from Structured Data

70
**Incomplete Data Data is often incomplete**

Some variables of interest are not assigned values This phenomenon happens when we have Missing values: Some variables unobserved in some instances Hidden variables: Some variables are never observed We might not even know they exist

71
**Hidden (Latent) Variables**

Why should we care about unobserved variables? X1 X2 X3 X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 Y1 Y2 Y3 17 parameters 59 parameters

72
**Example P(X) assumed to be known**

Likelihood function of: Y|X=T, Y|X=H Contour plots of log likelihood for different number of missing values of X (M = 8): X Y no missing values Y|X=H Y|X=T 2 missing value Y|X=T 3 missing values Y|X=T In general: likelihood function has multiple modes

73
Incomplete Data In the presence of incomplete data, the likelihood can have multiple maxima Example: We can rename the values of hidden variable H If H has two values, likelihood has two maxima In practice, many local maxima H Y

74
**EM: MLE from Incomplete Data**

L(|D) Use current point to construct “nice” alternative function Max of new function scores ≥ than current point

75
**Expectation Maximization (EM)**

A general purpose method for learning from incomplete data Intuition: If we had true counts, we could estimate parameters But with missing values, counts are unknown We “complete” counts using probabilistic inference based on current parameter assignment We use completed counts as if real to re-estimate parameters

76
**Expectation Maximization (EM)**

HTHHT Y ??HTT T??TH Data N (X,Y ) X Y # HTHT HHTT Expected Counts P(Y=H|X=T,) = 0.4 P(Y=H|X=H,Z=T,) = 0.3 Current model

77
**Expectation Maximization (EM)**

Reiterate Initial network (G,0) Updated network (G,1) Expected Counts N(X1) N(X2) N(X3) N(H, X1, X1, X3) N(Y1, H) N(Y2, H) N(Y3, H) X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 Computation (E-Step) Reparameterize (M-Step) Training Data

78
**Expectation Maximization (EM)**

Formal Guarantees: L(1:D) L(0:D) Each iteration improves the likelihood If 1 = 0 , then 0 is a stationary point of L(:D) Usually, this means a local maximum

79
**Expectation Maximization (EM)**

Computational bottleneck: Computation of expected counts in E-Step Need to compute posterior for each unobserved variable in each instance of training set All posteriors for an instance can be derived from one pass of standard BN inference

80
**Summary: Parameter Learning with Incomplete Data**

Incomplete data makes parameter estimation hard Likelihood function Does not have closed form Is multimodal Finding max likelihood parameters: EM Gradient ascent Both exploit inference procedures for Bayesian networks to compute expected sufficient statistics

81
**Incomplete Data: Structure Scores**

Recall, Bayesian score: With incomplete data: Cannot evaluate marginal likelihood in closed form We have to resort to approximations: Evaluate score around MAP parameters Need to find MAP parameters (e.g., EM)

82
**Parametric optimization (EM)**

Naive Approach Perform EM for each candidate graph Parameter space G3 G2 G1 Parametric optimization (EM) Local Maximum Computationally expensive: Parameter optimization via EM — non-trivial Need to perform EM for all candidate structures Spend time even on poor candidates In practice, considers only a few candidates G4 Gn

83
**Structural EM Recall, in complete data we had**

Decomposition efficient search Idea: Instead of optimizing the real score… Find decomposable alternative score Such that maximizing new score improvement in real score

84
**Structural EM Idea: Use current model to help evaluate new structures**

Outline: Perform search in (Structure, Parameters) space At each iteration, use current model for finding either: Better scoring parameters: “parametric” EM step or Better scoring structure: “structural” EM step

85
** Training Data Reiterate Score & Parameterize Computation**

Expected Counts N(X1) N(X2) N(X3) N(H, X1, X1, X3) N(Y1, H) N(Y2, H) N(Y3, H) X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 Training Data N(X2,X1) N(H, X1, X3) N(Y1, X2) N(Y2, Y1, H) X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3 X1 X2 X3 H Y1 Y2 Y3

**Bayesian Networks: Problem**

Bayesian nets use propositional representation Real world has objects, related to each other Intelligence Difficulty Grade One of the key benefits of the propositional representation was our ability to represent our knowledge without explicit enumeration of the worlds. In turns out that we can do the same in the probabilistic framework. The key idea, introduced by Pearl in the Bayesian network framework, is to use locality of interaction. This is an assumption which seems to be a fairly good approximation of the world in many cases. However, this representation suffers from the same problem as other propositional representations. We have to create separate representational units (propositions) for the different entities in our domain. And the problem is that these instances are not independent. For example, the difficulty of CS101 in one network is the same difficulty as in another, so evidence in one network should influence our beliefs in another.

**St. Nordaf University Geo101 CS101 Teaching-ability Grade Satisfac**

Teaches Teaches Grade In-course Registered Intelligence Satisfac Welcome to Geo101 Forrest Gump Grade Registered Difficulty Welcome to CS101 In-course Satisfac Grade Registered Satisfac Jane Doe In-course Let us consider an imaginary university called St. Nordaf. St. Nordaf has two faculty, two students, two courses, and three registrations of students in courses, each of which is associated with a registration record. These objects are linked to each other: professors teach classes, students register in classes, etc. Each of the objects in the domain has properties that we care about.

98
**Relational Schema Classes Links Attributes**

Specifies types of objects in domain, attributes of each type of object, & types of links between objects Classes Professor Student Teaching-Ability Intelligence Attributes Teach Take Links Course In Registration Difficulty Grade Satisfaction St. Nordaf would like to do some reasoning about its university, so it calls Acme Consulting Company. Acme tells them that the first thing they have to do is to describe their university in some organized form, i.e., a relational database. The schema of a database tells us what types of objects we have, what are the attributes of these objects that are of interest, and how the objects can relate to each other.

99
**Representing the Distribution**

Many possible worlds for a given university All possible assignments of all attributes of all objects Infinitely many potential universities Each associated with a very different set of worlds Need to represent infinite set of complex distributions Unfortunately, this is a very large number of worlds, and to specify a probabilistic model we have to specify a probability for each one. Furthermore, the resulting distribution would be good only for a limited time. If St. Nordaf hired a new faculty member, or got a new student, or even if the two students registered for different classes next year, it would no longer apply, and St. Nordaf would have to pay Acme consulting all over again. Thus, we want a model that holds for the infinitely many potential universities that hold over this very simple schema. Thus, we are stuck with what seems to be an impossible problem. How do we represent an infinite set of possible distributions, each of which is by itself very complex.

100
**Possible Worlds World: assignment to all attributes**

Prof. Smith Prof. Jones Forrest Gump Jane Doe Welcome to CS101 Geo101 Teaching-ability Difficulty Grade Satisfac Intelligence World: assignment to all attributes of all objects in domain High Low Easy A B C Like Hate Smart Weak High Hard Easy A C B Hate Smart Weak The possible worlds for St. Nordaf consist of all possible assignments of values to all attributes of all objects in the domain. A probabilistic model over these worlds would tell us how likely each one is, allowing us to do some inferences about how the different objects interact, just as we did in our simple Bayesian network.

101
**Probabilistic Relational Models**

Key ideas: Universals: Probabilistic patterns hold for all objects in class Locality: Represent direct probabilistic dependencies Links give us potential interactions! Professor Teaching-Ability Student Intelligence Course Difficulty A B C Reg Grade Satisfaction The two key ideas that come to our rescue derive from the two approaches that we are trying to combine. From relational logic, we have the notion of universal patterns, which hold for all objects in a class. From Bayesian networks, we have the notion of locality of interaction, which in the relational case has a particular twist: Links give us precisely a notion of “interaction”, and thereby provide a roadmap for which objects can interact with each other. In this example, we have a template, like a universal quantifier for a probabilistic statement. It tells us: “For any registration record in my database, the grade of the student in the course depends on the intelligence of that student and the difficulty of that course.” This dependency will be instantiated for every object (of the right type) in our domain. It is also associated with a conditional probability distribution that specifies the nature of that dependence. We can also have dependencies over several links, e.g., the satisfaction of a student on the teaching ability of the professor who teaches the course.

102
**PRM Semantics Instantiated PRM BN**

Prof. Smith Prof. Jones Forrest Gump Jane Doe Welcome to CS101 Geo101 Instantiated PRM BN variables: attributes of all objects dependencies: determined by links & PRM Teaching-ability Grade|Intell,Diffic Grade Satisfac Intelligence Difficulty The semantics of this model is as something that generates an appropriate probabilistic model for any domain that we might encounter. The instantiation is the embodiment of universals on the one hand, and locality of interaction, as specified by the links, on the other.

103
**The Web of Influence CS101 Objects are all correlated**

Welcome to CS101 Objects are all correlated Need to perform inference over entire model For large databases, use approximate inference: Loopy belief propagation C A weak smart Welcome to Geo101 easy / hard This web of influence has interesting ramifications from the perspective of the types of reasoning patterns that it supports. Consider Forrest Gump. A priori, we believe that he is pretty likely to be smart. Evidence about two classes that he took changes our probabilities only very slightly. However, we see that most people who took CS101 got A’s. In fact, even people who did fairly poorly in other classes got an A in CS101. Therefore, we believe that CS101 is probably an easy class. To get a C in an easy class is unlikely for a smart student, so our probability that Forrest Gump is smart goes down substantially. weak / smart

**A Web of Data Tom Mitchell Professor Project-of WebKB Project Works-on**

Sean Slattery Student CMU CS Faculty Contains Advisee-of Project-of Works-on [Craven et al.] Of course, data is not always so nicely arranged for us as in a relational database. Let us consider the biggest source of data --- the world wide web. Consider the webpages in a computer science department. Here is one webpage, which links to another. This second webpage links to a third, which links back to the first two. There is also a webpage with a lot of outgoing links to webpages on this site. This is not nice clean data. Nobody labels these webpages for us, and tells us what they are. We would like to learn to understand this data, and conclude from it that we have a “Professor Tom Mitchell” one of whose interests is a project called “WebKB”. “Sean Slattery” is one of the students on the project, and Professor Mitchell is his advisor. Finally, Tom Mitchell is a member of the CS CMU faculty, which contains many other faculty members. How do we get from the raw data to this type of analysis?

The most standard approach is to classify the webpages into one of several categories: faculty, student, project, etc, using the words in the webpage as features, e.g., using the naïve Bayes model.

**What’s in a Link ... ... Page From- To- Page Link Category Category**

Word1 WordN From- To- ... Page Category Word1 WordN Link Exists 0.52 0.54 0.56 0.58 0.6 0.62 0.64 0.66 0.68 A more interesting approach is based on the realization that this domain is relational. It has objects that are linked to each other. And the links are very meaningful in and of themselves. For example, a student webpage is very likely to point to his advisor’s page. In the Kansas slide, I showed that by making links first-class citizens in the model, we can introduce a probabilistic model over them. Indeed, we can represent precisely this dependency, by asserting that the existence of a link depends on the category of the two pages pointing to it. This allows us to use, for example, a webpage that we are fairly sure is a student page to give evidence about the fact that a page it points to is a faculty webpage. In fact, they can both give evidence about each other, giving rise to a form of “collective classification”. Yet another place where links are useful is if we explicitly model the notion of a directory page. If a page is a faculty directory, it is highly likely to point to faculty webpages. Thus, we can use evidence about a faculty webpage that we are fairly certain about to infer that a page pointing to it is probably a faculty directory, and based on that increase our belief that other pages that this page points to are also faculty pages. This is just the web of influence applied to this domain!

We had no attributes for actors except their gender, so it only discovered these categories by seeing how the objects interact with other objects in the domain.
