(statistics)
A theory, as of statistical inference or decision making, in which probabilities are associated with individual events or statements rather than with sequences of events.

The priori information, the posterior information and the likelihood in bayesian probability theory are represented by probability distributions.
These methods include multi-criteria assessment, developing guiding principles ora vision, assessment through Bayesian probability networks, and formative evaluation.
The joint density for the prior for the Bayesian probability model (Equation 2) given the two marginal Beta densities is defined as:
The algorithm provides a priori information about the node order, using Bayesian probability as the standard to evaluate the degree of coincidence between the model and the data.
The local probabilities used in computing the conditional mutual information is computed using the popular Bayesian probability that uses the prior probability of a variable belonging to a natural sentiment class (i.e.
As cyberthreat analysts, experts rely on the company's machine learning and Bayesian probability theory to protect customers from cyberthreats.
Standard probability distributions, chi-square testing, Bayesian probability, and inferential statistics are then covered.
Although Bayesian probability theory offers a coherent and rational approach for source reconstruction, its application to real-world problems using real sensor networks and operational dispersion models will require a better understanding of both the scale and structure of the model error in the predicted concentrations.
Bayesian probability theory requires us to make our best guess about the future and then continually revise it as we get new information.
He is applying a statistical method known as Bayesian probability theory to translate the calculations that children make during learning tasks into computational models.
Bayesian probability is an interpretation concept that provides an accurate framework to increase the dependability of decision making systems under uncertainty [5].
