This research is motivated by the need to support inference across multiple intelligence systems involving uncertainty. Our objective is to develop a theoretical framework and related inference methods to map semantically similar variables between separate Bayesian networks in a principled way. The work is to be conducted in two steps. In the first step, we investigate the problem of formalizing the mapping between variables in two separate BNs with different semantics and distributions as pairwise linkages. In the second step, we aim to justify the mapping between networks as a set of selected variable linkages, and then conduct in-ference along it.
