Solving Asymmetric Decision Problems with Influence Diagrams
Runping Qi, Nevin Zhang, David Poole
While influence diagrams have many advantages as a representation framework for Bayesian decision problems, they have a serious drawback in handling asymmetric decision problems. To be represented in an influence diagram, an asymmetric decision problem must be symmetrized. A considerable amount of unnecessary computation may be involved when a symmetrized influence diagram is evaluated by conventional algorithms. In this paper we present an approach for avoiding such unnecessary computation in influence diagram evaluation.
