Distributed anytime generic inference in valuation algebras

Abstract:

In this thesis, we construct a general theoretical framework for anytime inference which automatically gives us instantiations of inference in various important domains, such as Bayesian networks, relational algebras, disjunctive normal forms and set potentials in Dempster-Shafer theory. Our framework is based on local computation schemes for inference, which perform inference by message-passing on junction trees. We also undertake an analysis of distributed inference. Our theoretical fram...
