Bayesian treatment of incomplete discrete data applied to mutual information and feature selection

Hutter, Marcus; Zaffalon, Marco


Given the joint chances of a pair of random variables one can compute quantities of interest, like the mutual information. The Bayesian treatment of unknown chances involves computing, from a second order prior distribution and the data likelihood, a posterior distribution of the chances. A common treatment of incomplete data is to assume ignorability and determine the chances by the expectation maximization (EM) algorithm. The two different methods above are well established...[Show more]
