Here are some questions you should think about before today;s class
We saw that propositional logic is monotonic and that real world
requried "defeasible" or "non-monotonic" reasoning. Is probabilistic
monotonic or non-monotonic? Explain.
2. What is the difference between "Probability" and "Statistics"?
We made a big point about the need for representing joint distribution
compactly. Much of elementary probability/statistics handles
continuous and multi-valued variables, where specifying the
distribution of the single variable itself will need a huge number of
How is this normally side-stepped in elementary probability?
Also, make sure to read/review chapter 13 which reviews elementary probability.
