  3. 3. Sum-Product Network in the context of missing data

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Pierre Clavier; [2020]
    Keywords : Statistics; Mixture model; Probabilistic Graphical Models; Statistik; Probabilistiska grafiska modeller;

    Abstract : In recent years, the interest in new Deep Learning methods has increased considerably due to their robustness and applications in many fields.
