SMILE (Structural Modeling, Inference, and Learning Engine) is a fully portable library of C++ classes implementing graphical decision-theoretic methods, such as Bayesian networks and influence diagrams, directly amenable to inclusion in intelligent systems. Its Windows user interface, Genie is a versatile and user-friendly development environment for graphical decision-theoretic models. Both modules, developed at the Decision Systems Laboratory, University of Pittsburgh, have been made available to the community in July 1998 at http://www2.sis.pitt.edu/~genie and have over 1,200 users worldwide (as of April 1999). This document summarizes the basic features of Genie and Smile.
