We provide a short introduction to the theory of Bayesian Networks and construct a Bayesian Network model of confirmation with an unreliable instrument. We indicate how this model can be extended to investigate the varietyof-evidence thesis, the Duhem-Quine thesis and calibration in philosophy of science and to give precise accounts of notions such as reliability and coherence in epistemology.
