Help with translations

Hi all,

Now that we have the plugin framework, it is a lot simpler to contribute with translations.

We would like to know who is interested in helping out with some translations.

All the best,
UnBBayes Team

Note of Thanks to Genie Group

Hi!

The UnBBayes Team would like to kindly thank the Genie group (http://genie.sis.pitt.edu/) for allowing us to use part of their tutorial in our own. Most of the material explaining basic modeling, BN, etc was borrowed from Genie's tutorial (http://genie.sis.pitt.edu/wiki/GeNIe_Documentation).

Thanks again!!

Tutorials, Presentations, and Videos

Hi!

We are really excited with our newest addition to our web site! A lot of people have complained about the lack of international (non portuguese) documentation for UnBBayes and finally, with the help of professors and students from George Mason University, we have published our official tutorial in our wiki at https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/unbbayes/index.php?title=Visit_the_Tutorial.

Please understand that this is the first version and we are counting with your help to fix problems, make it clearer, and add explanations about other features we have not covered in detail. I.e., let us know if you see a problem or if you want to make a contribution.... read more

UnBBayes release 3.52.7-BETA!

Hi all,

We are really proud to announce this new release of UnBBayes! This release took a lot of people a great amount of time and effort.

Video Tutorials

Recently we have received a lot of e-mails from users asking us to help them make the best use of UnBBayes. Since UnBBayes has been developed by Brazilians from the University of Brasilia (UnB), most of the dissertations, thesis, and documentation we have are in Portuguese.

Unfortunately, most of UnBBayes' users do not speak Portuguese. Therefore, we have been working with George Mason University (GMU) on creating/translating these tutorials in/to English.... read more
