The special issue on “Probabilistic Causal Modelling”.
MDPI – 11 Feb 2018
The special issue on “Probabilistic Causal Modelling” will be published on the Journal of Information. The three guest editors Dr. Kevin B Korb, Prof. Ann E Nicholson and Mr. Erik Nyberg are from the Faculty of IT at Monash University. This special issue will provide a view of its journey since probabilistic modelling was originated in the 1950s. It will also provide a snapshot of where this hot topic is at after crashing headlong into the Bayesian network technology, and a probabilistic predition of where it is headed. The deadline for manuscript submissions is on 1 August 2018.
