Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease is important for deploying interventions to prevent or slow disease progression. We propose a multi-view dependence modeling framework that integrates multiple data sources to distinguish patients at different stages of the disease. We design interpretable models that can handle heterogeneous data types including neuro-images, bio- and clinical markers, and historical and genotypical characteristics of the subjects. We learn the dependence structure from data with guidance from domain knowledge in Bayesian Networks, visualizing and quantifying the conditional probabilistic dependence among the variables. Our results indicate that the hybrid dependence models also improve prediction performance.
