Spam filtering using Bayesian networks Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The proliferation of spam e-mail is a rising problem. Not only an annoyance, spam wastes valuable network space and routing time. Due to high spam volume, manual filtering is inadequate. Automated spam filters exist, but better ones could help mitigate its impact. The effectiveness of Bayesian Networks for spam filtering was compared to the Naive Bayes approach, common to commercial filters. Bayesian Networks were found to produce higher quality predictions at acceptable speeds.
