Prior probability and Naive Bayes


Prior probability and Naive Bayes

Hi all,

Thank you for taking the time to read this question! Is it possible to create a Naive Bayes classifier from the prior probabilities? I do not have a training set per se, and I was hoping to not include the correct outcome in the data. So, I was hoping to predict the outcome from the prior probabilities, not from a training set. Can this be done in RapidMiner?

On a related note, is it possible to include the prior probabilities of the outcomes? If, for example, I know that 80% of the outcomes will be of one type and the remaining 20% will be the other, is it possible to enter this into the program?

Thank you,

Re: Prior probability and Naive Bayes

What you want is probably not possible. RapidMiner usually needs training data to create any kind of model. Maybe you can create a rule-based process with the Branch operator or the Generate Attributes operator, but that will be a bit tedious.

Best regards,
