Bayesian inference

Bayesian inference applies the principles of Bayes' theorem and Bayesian probability to derive the rules of logic for propositions in which the degree of belief[?] is not necessarily 1 (certainly true) or 0 (certainly false).

Bayesian inference has applications in artificial intelligence and expert systems.

For a worked example of one form of Bayesian inference, see naive Bayesian classification.

Bayesian inference and fuzzy logic are different approaches to the same tasks, but are not mathematically compatible.
