Optimization

Bayesian networks are great tools for building decision models.  Why does one care?  Because if you are performing a multiobjective  optimization  (the only type  of  optimization that really counts in the real world), you need to figure out which of the possible (Pareto optimal) solutions you most prefer.  In the medical field, there is always uncertainty which leads to probabilities which leads us to Bayesian networks.
