CECAN Webinar: Evaluation Under Uncertainty - Use of Bayesian Belief Networks

Dr Martin Reynolds


We were delighted to have Stuart Astill and Simon Henderson host a CECAN webinar on 16th October on 'Handling subjective views and bringing rigour to contribution analysis: Bayesian Belief Networks and evaluating likelihoods in action'. The webinar illustrated how influence maps analysed using Bayesian Belief Networks can be used to add rigour to contribution analysis (and other evaluative judgements) in situations where subjective views rather than objective outcome data is the main source of knowledge. They also reviewed how a well-planned approach can structure and aggregate subjective views using influence mapping, Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs) and conceptions around evaluating likelihoods.

If you were unable to join the webinar, you can watch/listen to the session via our Youtube channel below. Stuart and Simon have also kindly made their slides available for download here.
