Figure 2: Graphical Model for Prob. 2 2.2 [8 pts] Now, let the distribution of X be given by some graphical model instance, B = ( G , P ). Consider variable X i . What is the minimal subset of the variables, A - X - { X i } , such that X i is independent of the rest of the variables, X - A ∪{ X i } , given A ? Prove that this subset is necessary and sufficient. (Hint: Think about the variables that X i cannot possibly be conditionally independent of, and then think some more) 2.3 Extra Credit [8 pts] Show how you could efficiently compute the distribution over a variable X i given some as- signment to all the other variables in the network: P ( X i | x 1 , ..., x i - 1 , x i +1 , ..., x n ). Your procedure should not require the construction of the entire joint distribution P ( X 1 , ..., X n ). Specify the computational complexity of your procedure. 3 Marginalization [15 pts] 1. Consider the Burglar Alarm network shown in Figure 3. Construct a Bayesian network over all of the nodes except for Alarm, which is a minimal I-map for the marginal distribution over those variables defined by the above network. Be sure to get all dependencies that remain from the original network.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
