This tool computes the posterior probabilities of each of three hypothetical fish classes (minnow, salmon, marlin) using Bayes' rule.

FIGURE 9.1 is a flow diagram illustrating a procedure for classification of fishes. In this case the fish species to be classified are salmon and trout. (Diagram after Duda et al. 2001; drawings courtesy of Bob Hines, U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service.)

The equation below diagrams the anatomy of Bayes' rule.

This tool is built from the MATLAB scripts for Tutorial on Neural Systems Modeling by Thomas J. Anastasio.
