Abstract: This will be a hands-on workshop on Probabilistic Graphical Models and specifically Bayesian Networks. We shall learn about Bayesian Inference, PGMs, and learn Bayesian Networks with the open source library, pgmpy for which we are contributors. The students shall build various models such as Credit Approval Model, Fraud Models using python and the open source library. The workshop shall teach students basics of bayesian inference, conjugate priors, bayesian networks, features of bayesian networks and then work on a problem.
