Is the maximum BDeu Bayesian Network always the empty network?

I'm recently reading a paper about Scoring Mechanisms for Bayesian Networks. For the BDeu score, it appears that the maximum possible score of BDeu for Bayesian Network structure learning is zero. ...

What is the difference between a (dynamic) Bayes network and a HMM?

I have read that HMMs, Particle Filters and Kalman filters are special cases of dynamic Bayes networks. However, I only know HMMs and I don't see the difference to dynamic Bayes networks. Could ...

Is there any domain where Bayesian Networks outperform neural networks?

Neural networks get top results in Computer Vision tasks (see MNIST, ILSVRC, Kaggle Galaxy Challenge). They seem to outperform every other approach in Computer Vision. But there are also other tasks: ...
