9.5.2 Concerns Regarding the Probabilistic Model

Section 9.5.1 addressed the source of cost functions and the validity of taking their expectations. This section raises concerns over the validity of the probability distributions used in Section 9.2. The two main topics are criticisms of Bayesian methods in general and problems with constructing probability distributions.

- 9.5.2.1 Bayesians vs. frequentists
- 9.5.2.2 The source of prior distributions
- 9.5.2.3 Incorrect assumptions on conditional distributions
