### Finding Cycles in a State Sequence

Suppose I observe a set of states $\mathbf{X} = \{X_{1}, X_{2}, \ldots, X_{K}\}$ over time. I assume that there exist $M$ cycles $\mathbf{C} = \{C_{1}, C_{2}, \ldots, C_{M} \}$ in the observed state ...

### What is the difference between a Bayesian Network and a Markov Chain?

I am trying to understand the difference between a Bayesian Network and a Markov Chain. When I search for this one the web, the unanimous solution seems to be that a Bayesian Network is directional (...

### How can I use a Hidden Markov Model to recognize images?

How could I use a 16x16 image as an input in a HMM? And at the same time how would I train it? Can I use backpropagation?

### How is the probability transition matrix populated in the Markov process (chain) for a board game?

Following on from my other (answered) question: With regards to the Markov process (chain), if an environment is a board game and its states are the various position the game pieces may be in, how ...

### In the Markov chain, how are the directions to each successive state defined?

I'm watching the David Silver series on YT which has raised a couple of questions: In the Markov process (or chain), how are the directions to each successive state defined? For example, how are the ...

### Are there any ways to model markov chains from time series data?

I want to make a thing that produces a stochastic process from time series data. The time series data is recorded every hour over the year, which means 24-hour of patterns exist for 365 days. What I ...

### Predicting Hot Categories In a Reference Manager

Reference managers like Zotero or Mendeley allow researchers to categorize papers into hierarchical categories called collections. The User navigates through a listing of these collections when filing ...

### Can HMM, MRF, or CRF be used to classify the state of a single observation, not the entire observation sequence?

I learn that the Viterbi algorithm used for Hidden Markov Model (HMM) can classify a sequence of hidden states from the corresponding observations; Markov Random Field (MRF) and Conditional Random ...

### Difference in continuing and episodic cases in Sutton and Barto - Introduction to RL, exercise 3.5

Excercise 3.5 The equastions in Section 3.1 are for the continuing case and need to be modified (very slightly) to apply to episodic tasks. Show that you know the modifications needed by giving ...

### Detect patterns in sequences of actions

I have to analyse sequences of actions that look more or less like this JSON blob. The question I'm trying to answer is whether there are recurring (sub)patterns that different users adopt when asked ...

I need some help in developing a Markov Model for a crossroads there is no one way road and i am assuming at this time that traffic is only allowed to go straight no turns are allowed. There are 4 ...

### Can an Markov decision process be dependent on the past?

As far as I know MDP are independent from the past. But the definition says that the same policy should always take the same action depending on the state. What if I define my state as the current "...
