• Slide 3
• Pattern Classification, Chapter 2 (Part 1) 2 Introduction The sea bass/salmon example State of nature, prior State of nature is a random variable The catch of salmon and sea bass is equiprobable P( 1 ) = P( 2 ) (uniform priors) P( 1 ) + P( 2 ) = 1 (exclusivity and exhaustivity)
• Slide 4
• Pattern Classification, Chapter 2 (Part 1) 3 Decision rule with only the prior information Decide 1 if P( 1 ) > P( 2 ) otherwise decide 2 Use of the classconditional information P(x | 1 ) and P(x | 2 ) describe the difference in lightness between populations of sea-bass and salmon

• Slide 6
• 5 Posterior, likelihood, evidence P( j | x) = (P(x | j ) * P ( j )) / P(x) (BAYES RULE) Posterior = (Likelihood * Prior) / Evidence Where in case of two categories

• Slide 8
• 7 Intuitive decision rule given the posterior probabilities: Given x: if P( 1 | x) > P( 2 | x) True state of nature = 1 if P( 1 | x) < P( 2 | x) True state of nature = 2 Why do this?: Whenever we observe a particular x, the probability of error is : P(error | x) = P( 1 | x) if we decide 2 P(error | x) = P( 2 | x) if we decide 1
• Slide 9
• Pattern Classification, Chapter 2 (Part 1) 8 Minimizing the probability of error Decide 1 if P( 1 | x) > P( 2 | x); otherwise decide 2 Therefore: P(error | x) = min [P( 1 | x), P( 2 | x)] (Bayes decision)
• Slide 10
• Pattern Classification, Chapter 2 (Part 1) 9 Bayesian Decision Theory Continuous Features Generalization of the preceding ideas Use of more than one feature Use more than two states of nature Allowing actions and not only decide on the state of nature Introduce a loss of function which is more general than the probability of error Allowing actions other than classification primarily allows the possibility of rejection Refusing to make a decision in close or bad cases! Letting loss function state how costly each action taken is
• Slide 11
• Pattern Classification, Chapter 2 (Part 1) 10 Let { 1, 2,, c } be the set of c states of nature (or classes) Let { 1, 2,, a } be the set of possible actions Let ( i | j ) be the loss for action i when the state of nature is j Bayesian Decision Theory Continuous Features
