## Bayesian Machine Learning Applications Examples

Have you ever wondered how machines can make decisions with uncertainty? What if there was an approach in machine learning that not only learned from data but also quantified and managed uncertainty in a principled way? Enter the realm of Bayesian machine learning. Bayesian machine learning is one of the most powerful modeling technique in predictive analytics. It marries the probabilistic reasoning with machine learning algorithms. Bayes’ theorem, which was first introduced by Reverend Thomas Bayes in 1763, provides a way to infer probabilities from observations. Bayesian machine learning has become increasingly popular because it can be used for real-world applications such as spam filtering (NLP), credit card fraud detection, …

## Bayes Theorem Explained with Examples

In this post, you will learn about Bayes’ Theorem with the help of examples. It is of utmost importance to get a good understanding of Bayes Theorem in order to create probabilistic models. Bayes’ theorem is alternatively called as Bayes’ rule or Bayes’ law. One of the many applications of Bayes’s theorem is Bayesian inference which is one of the approaches of statistical inference (other being Frequentist inference), and fundamental to Bayesian statistics. In this post, you will learn about the following: Introduction to Bayes’ Theorem Bayes’ theorem real-world examples Introduction to Bayes’ Theorem In simple words, Bayes Theorem is used to determine the probability of a hypothesis in the presence of more evidence or information. In other …

## Joint & Conditional Probability Explained with Examples

In this post, you will learn about joint and conditional probability differences and examples. When starting with Bayesian analytics, it is very important to have a good understanding around probability concepts. And, the probability concepts such as joint and conditional probability is fundamental to probability and key to Bayesian modeling in machine learning. As a data scientist, you must get a good understanding of probability related concepts. Joint & Conditional Probability Concepts In this section, you will learn about basic concepts in relation to Joint and conditional probability. Probability of an event can be quantified as a function of uncertainty of whether that event will occur or not. Let’s say an event A is …
