Maximum likelihood from incomplete data via the EM algorithm
 JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL STATISTICAL SOCIETY, SERIES B
, 1977
"... A broadly applicable algorithm for computing maximum likelihood estimates from incomplete data is presented at various levels of generality. Theory showing the monotone behaviour of the likelihood and convergence of the algorithm is derived. Many examples are sketched, including missing value situat ..."

Discriminative Training and Maximum Entropy Models for Statistical Machine Translation
, 2002
"... We present a framework for statistical machine translation of natural languages based on direct maximum entropy models, which contains the widely used source channel approach as a special case. All knowledge sources are treated as feature functions, which depend on the source language senten ..."

A Maximum Entropy Model for PartOfSpeech Tagging
, 1996
"... This paper presents a statistical model which trains from a corpus annotated with PartOfSpeech tags and assigns them to previously unseen text with stateoftheart accuracy(96.6%). The model can be classified as a Maximum Entropy model and simultaneously uses many contextual "features" t ..."

Chunking with Maximum Entropy Models
, 2000
"... this paper I discuss a first attempt to create a text chunker using a Maximum Entropy model. The first experiments, implementing classifiers that tag every word in a sentence with a phrasetag using very local lexical information, partof speech tags and phrase tags of surrounding words, give encoura ..."

with Maximum Entropy Models
, 2006
"... Phonebased automatic language recognition systems have recently been surpassed in accuracy by systems that make use of spectral information alone. Intuitively, it seems that the higher level knowledge employed by a phonebased approach should enable it to achieve higher levels of accuracy than spec ..."

 Add to MetaCart
present a discriminative approach to phonebased language recognition based on conditional maximum entropy models. We present results from our preliminary experiments with two types of backend classifiers on a tenlanguage task using short files of varying durations from the handsegmented and labeled
A Maximum Entropy Model For Parsing
 In Proceedings of the International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
"... this paper, we present a method where more of the tree structure is used in the parsing model. We define a set of features that capture long distance dependency such as parallelism in coordination. These features are then integrated with a Maximum Entropy model into an overall probabilistic model fo ..."

A Gaussian prior for smoothing maximum entropy models
, 1999
"... In certain contexts, maximum entropy (ME) modeling can be viewed as maximum likelihood training for exponential models, and like other maximum likelihood methods is prone to overfitting of training data. Several smoothing methods for maximum entropy models have been proposed to address this problem ..."

Mixtures of Conditional Maximum Entropy Models
 In Proc. of ICML2003
, 2002
"... Driven by successes in several application areas, maximum entropy modeling has recently gained considerable popularity. We generalize the standard maximum entropy formulation of classi cation problems to better handle the case where complex data distributions arise from a mixture of simpler u ..."

Feature Lattices for Maximum Entropy Modelling
 In Proc. of ACLCOLING

Maximum Entropy Modeling with Clausal Constraints
 In Proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Inductive Logic Programming
, 1997
"... We present the learning system Maccent which addresses the novel task of stochastic MAximum ENTropy modeling with Clausal Constraints. Maximum Entropy method is a Bayesian method based on the principle that the target stochastic model should be as uniform as possible, subject to known constraints. ..."
