Abstracting Probabilistic Models: Relations, Constraints and Beyond (Extended Abstract)

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Abstraction is a powerful idea widely used in science to explain phenomena at the required granularity. Think of explaining a heart disease in terms of its anatomical components versus its molecular composition. Think of understanding the political dynamics of elections by studying micro level phenomena (say, voter grievances in counties) versus macro level events (e.g., television advertisements, gerrymandering). In particular, in computer science, it is often understood as the process of mapping one representation onto a simpler representation by suppressing irrelevant information.
