State values

If required, a discrete variable's states can have an associated Value in addition to the state's name.

First the State value type must be set on a variable, via the New node dialog, or the Edit states dialog.

The following state value types are supported:

  • None - states do not have a value specified.
  • Boolean - a state can take the value False or True.
  • Double Interval - a state defines a continuous interval (e.g. (-Inf, 32.5]). Intervals can be defined manually, or automatically using discretization.
  • Integer - a state can have an integer value (e.g. 99)

When a discrete variable has Double Interval states, you can also output the Mean and Standard Deviation / Variance of the node.

Also see the Data Map dialog, for options on how you can map data to variables (e.g. during a batch query, parameter learning etc...)
