An analysis of Bayesian classifiers
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE TENTH NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTI CIAL INTELLIGENCE
, 1992
"... In this paper we present anaveragecase analysis of the Bayesian classifier, a simple induction algorithm that fares remarkably well on many learning tasks. Our analysis assumes a monotone conjunctive target concept, and independent, noisefree Boolean attributes. We calculate the probability that t ..."

Estimating Continuous Distributions in Bayesian Classifiers
 In Proceedings of the Eleventh Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence
, 1995
"... When modeling a probability distribution with a Bayesian network, we are faced with the problem of how to handle continuous variables. Most previous work has either solved the problem by discretizing, or assumed that the data are generated by a single Gaussian. In this paper we abandon the normality ..."

the normality assumption and instead use statistical methods for nonparametric density estimation. For a naive Bayesian classifier, we present experimental results on a variety of natural and artificial domains, comparing two methods of density estimation: assuming normality and modeling each conditional
Induction of Selective Bayesian Classifiers
 CONFERENCE ON UNCERTAINTY IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
, 1994
"... In this paper, we examine previous work on the naive Bayesian classifier and review its limitations, which include a sensitivity to correlated features. We respond to this problem by embedding the naive Bayesian induction scheme within an algorithm that carries out a greedy search through the space ..."

On the optimality of the simple Bayesian classifier under zeroone loss
 MACHINE LEARNING
, 1997
"... The simple Bayesian classifier is known to be optimal when attributes are independent given the class, but the question of whether other sufficient conditions for its optimality exist has so far not been explored. Empirical results showing that it performs surprisingly well in many domains containin ..."

Searching for Dependencies in Bayesian Classifiers
, 1996
"... Naive Bayesian classifiers which make independence assumptions perform remarkably well on some data sets but poorly on others. We explore ways to improve the Bayesian classifier by searching for dependencies among attributes. We propose and evaluate two algorithms for detecting dependencies among at ..."

Beyond Independence: Conditions for the Optimality of the Simple Bayesian Classifier
"... The simple Bayesian classifier (SBC) is commonly thought to assume that attributes are independent given the class, but this is apparently contradicted by the surprisingly good performance it exhibits in many domains that contain clear attribute dependences. No explanation for this has been proposed ..."

Induction of Recursive Bayesian Classifiers
 In Brazdil P.B.(ed.), Machine Learning: ECML93
, 1993
"... Abstract. In this paper, we review the induction of simple Bayesian classifiers, note some of their drawbacks, and describe a recursive algorithm that constructs a hierarchy of probabilistic concept descriptions. We posit that this approach should outperform the simpler scheme in domains that involv ..."

Naive Bayesian Classifier Committees

, 1998
"... . The naive Bayesian classifier provides a very simple yet surprisingly accurate technique for machine learning. Some researchers have examined extensions to the naive Bayesian classifier that seek to further improve the accuracy. For example, a naive Bayesian tree approach generates a decision tree ..."

Visualizing the Simple Bayesian Classifier
, 1997
"... The simple Bayesian classifier (SBC), sometimes called NaiveBayes, is built based on a conditional independence model of each attribute given the class. The model was previously shown to be surprisingly robust to obvious violations of this independence assumption, yielding accurate classification m ..."
