Computing Probability Intervals Under Independency Constraints

Many AI researchers argue that probability theory is only capable of dealing with uncertainty in situations where a full specification of a joint probability distribution is available, and conclude that it is not suitable for application in knowledge-based systems. Probability intervals, however, constitute a means for expressing incompleteness of information. We present a method for computing such probability intervals for probabilities of interest from a partial specification of a joint probability distribution. Our method improves on earlier approaches by allowing for independency relationships between statistical variables to be exploited.
