## UAI 2016 Inference Evaluation## Sparse Model FormatWe use the The sparse format uses sparse tables to specify the tables. Its structure is same as the UAI model format, except the following two differences: The preamble network type will say SPARSEMARKOV (or SPARSEBAYES) instead of MARKOV (or BAYES). Each potential/function table is specified in a special way, as described below.
## Sparse Function TablesConsider a function defined over and . has two values in its domain while has three values in its domain: .
The function will be specified as follows: 4.7 2 0 0 3.4 0 1 3.6 The first line specifies that the default-value of the function is 4.7 and it has entries that do not equal the default-value. The next two lines specify the non-default entries, followed by the corresponding potential value. (Note that line breaks and empty lines are effectively just a whitespace, exactly like plain spaces “ ”. They are used here to improve readability.) |
