This page contains resources about Bayesian Machine Learning and Bayesian Learning including Bayesian Inference, Bayesian Computational Methods and Computational Methods for Bayesian Inference.

Bayesian Networks do not necessarily follow Bayesian Methods, but they are named after Bayes' Rule. Bayesian and Non-Bayesian (Frequentist) Methods can either be used.

A distinction should be made between Models and Methods (which might be applied on or using these Models).

Bayes' Rule can be used at both the parameter level and the model level.
