The Libra machine learning toolkit includes implementations of a variety of algorithms for learning and inference with Bayesian networks and arithmetic circuits:

Learning algorithms -- Structure learning for BNs and ACs; Chow-Liu algorithm; AC weight learning

Inference algorithms -- Mean field, belief propagation, Gibbs sampling, AC variable elimination, AC exact inference

Libra's strength is exploiting context-specific independence (such as decision tree CPDs) to allow exact inference in models with high treewidth.

Changes to previous version:

Version 0.2.0 (6/08/2010):

  • BP now supports table CPDs, not just trees
  • Gibbs sampling now supports dependency networks with -depnet flag (experimental).
  • Added -norb flag to disable Rao-Blackwellization in Gibbs sampling
  • Fixed expat compilation under OS X
  • Greatly expanded user manual
  • Tweaks to the output of inference algorithms
  • Added more automated tests, based on the tutorial
