A softer point of view is that Bayesian learning theory is a model for learning, and it has the merit of being a simple model that can be programmed on computers. Probability theory in general, and Bayesian learning theory in particular, are part of the core of artiﬁcial intelligence. 6 Independence Intuitively, we would say that two events, A and B, are independent if knowing that one had occurred gave us no information about whether the other had occurred; that is, P(A | B) = P(A) and P(B | A) = P(B).
To improve the chances of a correct diagnosis, the concentration of digitalis in the blood can be measured. Bellar et al. (1971) conducted a study of the relation of the concentration of digitalis in the blood to digitalis intoxication in 135 patients. Their results are simpliﬁed slightly in the following table, where this notation is used: T + = high blood concentration (positive test) T − = low blood concentration (negative test) D+ = toxicity (disease present) D− = no toxicity (disease absent) D+ D− Total T+ T− 25 18 14 78 39 96 Total 43 92 135 Thus, for example, 25 of the 135 patients had a high blood concentration of digitalis and suffered toxicity.
