A latent variable model for multivariate discretization
Monti S, Cooper GF. A latent variable model for multivariate discretization. Proceedings of International Workshop in Artificial Intelligence and Statistics (1999) 249-254
We describe a new method for multivariate discretization based on the use of a latent variable model. the method is proposed as a tool to extend the scope of applicability of machine learning algorithms that handle discrete variables only.
