### Application of HMM to model contest selection behaviour in fantasy sports

I am working on a research project wherein i have to model contest selection behaviour as a function of immediate gain, immediate loss, cumulative gain, cumulative loss. The contest choices are 1,2,...

### For a node in an undirected graph - does the node affect itself if its markov blanket is known?

Consider the following Markov Random Field. Question 1: Which of the following nodes will have no effect on H given the Markov Blanket of H? Question 2: Will node H itself have any effect on itself, ...

### Find transistion matrix Markov chain

There is a two-state discrete-time Markov chain with a random variable: $y_t = yx_t$ where $y = [1 \ 5]'$ (' is there because this matrix should be transposed). It is known that: \$E(y_{t+1} | x_t) = [...

### Why is it an advantage "that Markov chains are never needed" to obtain gradients?

In the original GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) paper, Generative adversarial networks by I. Goodfellow, J. Pouget-Abadie, M. Mirza et. al. they state an advantage of the GAN is "that Markov ...

### How can one be assured that generative models are not memorizing dataset, and that they will generate an unique image outside of dataset?

If all GAN can do is capture the probability distribution of the dataset, then shouldn't they be similar to handing out images from the dataset? How can we verify that the images that they generate ...

### HMMLearn Predict Next Observed Event

From my understanding you can use the transition matrix to predict the probability of going from the last predicted hidden state(state t), to the t+1 hidden state. My confusion is how in code format ...

### What is the relationship between Markov Random Fields and Conditional Random Fields?

In Neural networks [3.8] : Conditional random fields - Markov network by Hugo Larochelle it seems to me that a Markov Random Field is a special case of a CRF. However, in the Wikipedia article Markov ...
