CONGRATULATIONS!!! You have journeyed through a challenging path and persevered. You are now equipped to “release the BAW.” In your journey, you learned to coordinate three languages – 1) graphical models to aid business communication , 2) probability theory for Bayesian inference, and 3) the R programming language to manipulate and visualize data as well as to give you access to statistical computation. Your language coordination abilities help you overcome the challenges faced by the poor people depicted in Figure 26.1. The use of generative DAGs from the
