Accurate Unlexicalized Parsing
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 41ST ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS
, 2003
"... We demonstrate that an unlexicalized PCFG can parse much more accurately than previously shown, by making use of simple, linguistically motivated state splits, which break down false independence assumptions latent in a vanilla treebank grammar. Indeed, its ..."

Answering the Skeptics: Yes, Standard Volatility Models Do Provide Accurate Forecasts
"... Volatility permeates modern financial theories and decision making processes. As such, accurate measures and good forecasts of future volatility are critical for the implementation and evaluation of asset and derivative pricing theories as well as trading and hedging strategies. In response to this, ..."

The increase in the number of large data sets and the complexity of current probabilistic sequence evolution models necessitates fast and reliable phylogeny reconstruction methods. We describe a new approach, based on the maximumlikelihood principle, which clearly satisfies these requirements. The core of this method is a simple hillclimbing algorithm that adjusts tree topology and branch lengths simultaneously. This algorithm starts from an initial tree built by a fast distancebased method and modifies this tree to improve its likelihood at each iteration. Due to this simultaneous adjustment of the topology and branch lengths, only a few iterations are sufficient to reach an optimum. We used extensive and realistic computer simulations to show that the topological accuracy of this new method is at least as high as that of the existing maximumlikelihood programs and much higher than the performance of distancebased and parsimony approaches. The reduction of computing time is dramatic in comparison with other maximumlikelihood packages, while the likelihood maximization ability tends to be higher. For example, only 12 min were required on a standard personal computer to analyze a data set consisting of 500 rbcL sequences with 1,428 base pairs from plant plastids, thus reaching a speed of the same order as some popular distancebased and parsimony algorithms. This new method is implemented in the PHYML program, which is freely available on our web page:
PseudoRandom Generation from OneWay Functions
 PROC. 20TH STOC
, 1988
"... Pseudorandom generators are fundamental to many theoretical and applied aspects of computing. We show howto construct a pseudorandom generator from any oneway function.

Accurately interpreting clickthrough data as implicit feedback
 In Proceedings of SIGIR

"... This paper examines the reliability of implicit feedback generated from clickthrough data in WWW search. Analyzing the users ’ decision process using eyetracking and comparing implicit feedback against manual relevance judgments, we conclude that clicks are informative but biased. While this makes t ..."

Active Learning with Statistical Models

Integrating classification and association rule mining
 In Proc of KDD

Association rule mining finds all the rules existing in the database that satisfy some minimum support and minimum confidence constraints. For association rule mining, the target of di ..."

Experimental results show that the classifier built this way is, in general, more accurate than that produced by the stateoftheart classification system C4.5. In addition, this integration helps to solve a
