Probabilistic graphical models (PGMs) are a rich framework for encoding probability distributions over complex domains: joint (multivariate) distributions over large numbers of random variables that interact with each other. These representations sit at the intersection of statistics and computer science, relying on concepts from probability theory, graph algorithms, machine learning, and more. They are the basis for the state-of-the-art methods in a wide variety of applications, such as medical diagnosis, image understanding, speech recognition, natural language processing, and many, many more. They are also a foundational tool in formulating many machine learning problems.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PROBABILISTIC GRAPHICAL MODELS 1: REPRESENTATION
really great course! very clear and logical structure. I completed a graphical models course as part of my master's degree, and this really helped to consolidate it
Simply excellent. A wonderful course to begin the representation of PGM. Be advised.... this can get quite advanced. It's all about that Bayes, 'bout that Bayes.... no trouble.
learned a lot. lectures were easy to follow and the textbook was able to more fully explain things when I needed it. looking forward to the next course in the series.
Top notch course! I only wish the explanations for answer choices in the quizzes/exams were more elaborate, as some of them are single sentences that don't really provide justification.
