For folks whose eyes glaze over when people start mentioning things
like "Bayesian networks" here's an excellent introduction that isn't
terribly math-heavy and doesn't require much of a grounding in
probability or stats:
I'd read this some time ago but it serendipitously popped up on reddit
(IIRC) a couple of days ago... I was trying to explain (as it seems
I'm constantly trying to explain) the difference between e.g. Bayesian
nets and neural nets to somebody else (offlist) the other day, and why
one is entirely "transparent" and the other not necessarily so, and
when I saw the post it sparked my recollection of reading this back
when it was published.
At any rate, recommended if you're interested in such things.
