Bayesian networks are graphical structures, consisting of nodes and arcs. Nodes represent random variables, arcs represent direct probabilistic relationships between the connected nodes/variables. These probabilistic relationships are quantified by probability distributions. Such probability distributions are recorded in conditional probability tables that are associated with each node.
Bayesian networks can be machine-learned from data or, alternatively, they can be manually modeled by domain experts. Once a Bayesian network is created, it can be used for updating the probability distribution of each variable, given any evidence set on other variables in the network
