How Bayesian Networks Are Superior in Understanding Effects of Variables


Bayes Nets (or Bayesian Networks) give remarkable results in determining the effects of many variables on an outcome. They typically perform strongly even in cases when other methods falter or fail. These networks have had relatively little use with business-related problems, although they have worked successfully for years in fields such as scientific research, public safety, aircraft guidance systems and national defense. Importantly, they often outperform regression, particularly in determining variables' effects. Regression is one of the most august multivariate methods, and among the most studied and applied.
