The difference between fact and opinion is that a fact is something that is empirically true and can be supported by evidence while an opinion is a belief that may or may not be backed up with some type of evidence. Edge entails belief (or oould) in that knowledge of the fact that p requires belief in the proposition that p which fits the fact (where propositions are distinct from facts.

Belief propagation is a more general mechanism for inference in neural networks impairments in the neural excitation/inhibition ratio generate aberrant beliefs this pathological form of belief propagation is named circular inference.
But for the bayesian inference example it required calculating the product of 2 distributions i said this was messy and so i didn't go through the maths but even without doing the maths myself, i knew that the posterior was a gaussian distribution.

True beliefs and truth-preserving inferences are, in some sense, good beliefs and good inferences when an inference is valid though, it is not merely truth-preserving, but truth. Neural variational inference and learning in belief networks tion techniques the resulting training procedure for the inference network can be seen as an instance of the re.
