Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

Regarding your question about discretization. I would like to be able to get beliefs from a continuous node. I'm developing an application where I'm computing joint continuous probabilities and I'm finding its better to display them as a probability distribution functions rather than just providing ...

Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

That makes getting the distribution easier however, when I change alpha and beta I can see the distribution change in GeNie when it's sampled. I am able to read the discretized beliefs directly from the discretized distribution node however the distribution never changes even when I change alpha and...

Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

You mentioned "for continuous nodes, GetNodeValue returns either samples or discretized beliefs, depending on the inference applied by SMILE based on the evidence set in the network". In the attached model I created a discrete node "discrete_beta_distribution" and used that to ge...

SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

Thanks for the upgrade. I've attached an Excel Workbook and a GeNie model that displays a Beta distribution. You can enter an alpha and a beta. Excel will graph the distribution.

Re: Sum of Uniform Distributions

Thanks so much for the reply. I had a feeling the Central Limit Theorem was the answer, but I wasn't sure.

Re: Sum of Uniform Distributions

(I don't believe this is an issue. I just want to be able to explain the behavior.)

Sum of Uniform Distributions

Can you explain why, when I add five uniform distributions, do I get what looks like a Normal distribution?

Re: Sample Forms App with SMILE.NET

I have a basic Visual Studio (2017) question. If I create a new project how do I add smilenet.dll as a reference.

I can add it to the solution explorer but the "using Smile;" statement doesn't find it.

SMILE.COM Hepar Excel Application

Thanks for posting SMILE.COM. I like having the ability to access a network through Excel. I created a sample spreadsheet application that accepts evidence for the Hepar network.

Re: SMILE.COM released

I ran smilecom_setup32.exe. It's asking me for a Serial #.

What do I enter?

Sample Forms App with SMILE.NET

Can you post a sample forms application using SMILE.NET?

I want to create an app that will allow a user to enter evidence into a network through an MS Form. I'm looking for something simple to get me started.

Re: Combining Beta Distributions

Can you explain what this function is doing?

Code: Select all

MixedBeta=If(Uniform(0,1)>0.5,Beta1,Beta2)
When is Uniform(0,1)>0.5 and when is Uniform(0,1)<=0.5?

Re: Combining Beta Distributions

Thanks so much for this. You understood my problem precisely. This is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't realize how the Choose function worked. I didn't realize that it's still choosing something even though the states in the chooser node haven't been selected. Can you send an example of a un...

Combining Beta Distributions

Thanks so much for version 2.2! I've developed a network with multiple Beta distributions. I have a sigma and a beta chooser (set up as chance nodes). I need to combine two beta distributions. Multiplying them doesn't work. I've attached a model where I add the sigmas and the betas . Can you verify ...
