Just a small and humble suggestion

Post by charlie » Mon Oct 01, 2018 10:52 pm

Is it possible to explicitly include a noisy-add (noisy-min) chance node as a choice?

The negation of noisy-or gate is not very intuitive to the audience during expert elicitation (sometime me myself got messed up when there is a heated debate). It also presents awkwardly e.g. states being upside-down.

At least in the field I'm studying, the AND relationship among parent variables is quite common. An explicit noisy-And gate would be a great convenience. Presumably this is not a daunting task (?).

In passing just wish to know whether Q-GeNIe will be released in the near future?

I have to admit that over time I have grown to develop the same feeling about the Noisy-MAX gate as you did. Even though Noisy-MAX with negation allows for implementing Noisy-MIN, it would be better to have a separate entry point/GUI choice for Noisy-AND (and Noisy-MIN as a generalization to multiple states). It is now a matter of priorities for us but this will be coming, so please stay tuned!

QGeNIe will be coming as a product soon, quite likely early next year.
