Confident Bayesian Learning of Graphical Models

Abstract: Confident Bayesian learning amounts to computing summaries of a posterior distribution either exactly or with probabilistic accuracy guarantees. I will review the state of the art in confident Bayesian structure learning in graphical models, focusing on the class of Bayesian networks and its subclass of chordal Markov networks.
