Abstract: It is possible to learn the parameters of a given Bayesian network structure from data because those parameters influence the probability of observing the data. However, some of the parameters are irrelevant to the probability of observing a particular data case. This paper shows how such irrelevancies can be exploited to speedup various algorithms for parameter learning in Bayesian networks.
