Bayesian networks are probabilistic models that can be used for prediction and decision-making in the presence of uncertainty. For intelligent information processing, probabilistic reasoning based on Bayesian networks can be used to cope with uncertainty in real-world domains. In order to apply this, we need appropriate models and statistical learning methods to obtain models. We start by reviewing Bayesian network models, probabilistic reasoning, statistical learning, and related researches. Then, we introduce applications for intelligent information processing using Bayesian networks.
