The BayesiaLab WebSimulator is a web-based application, hosted on Bayesia's servers in France, which allows you to share interactive models with your audience without having to install BayesiaLab on their computer.
The BayesiaLab WebSimulator uses your .xbl file to create a web page linked to your network. You can define which nodes are accessible as Input Nodes and Output Nodes. Once you publish your network, the BayesiaLab WebSimulator utilizes the Bayesia Engine API to perform inference in your network. This allows anyone to enter observations/evidence for the nodes in your network via the web. The BayesiaLab Simulator's web interface is responsive, thus allowing even tablet or smartphone users to work dynamically with your published network. Whenever evidence is set, the user will immediately see updated probability distributions of the Output Nodes.
The BayesiaLab WebSimulator can be used in two ways:
- Using a public account, which means that models are accessible to the general public. A public WebSimulator account comes with every BayesiaLab Professional license.
- Using a private and secure account, which means that the access is restricted to those individuals to whom you have provided the model identifier and the corresponding password. Private WebSimulator accounts are available by annual subscription.
