    Description

    The Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) system has been further enhanced with an analytical engine—BayesFusion’s SMILE (Structural Modeling, Inference, and Learning Engine) that comes with the GeNIe (Graphical Network Interface) software—for creating Bayesian network (BN) models. BNs are graphical networks of variables linked by probabilities, that have proven useful in decision-aiding for risk analysis and risk management.
