bayesian networks for regression

Would it be possible to use bayesian network for regression and/or prediction? I understand that it is a tool one can use to compute probabilities, but I haven't found much material about possible applications for forecasting.

You may want to ask this on stats.SE for more perspective. –  Mitch Jun 13 '11 at 14:51

A prediction task is essentially a question of "what is $E(Y|X)$" where $Y$ is the variable you want to predict and $X$ is(are) the variable(s) that you observe, so yes you can (and people have) used BNs for it.
