Minimum Error Rate Training in Statistical Machine Translation
, 2003
"... Often, the training procedure for statistical machine translation models is based on maximum likelihood or related criteria. A general problem of this approach is that there is only a loose relation to the final translation quality on unseen text. In this paper, we analyze various training cri ..."

Some studies in machine learning using the game of Checkers
 IBM JOURNAL OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
, 1959
"... Two machinelearning procedures have been investigated in some detail using the game of checkers. Enough work has been done to verify the fact that a computer can be programmed so that it will learn to play a better game of checkers than can be played by the person who wrote the program. Furthermor ..."

and relative weights are unknown and unspecified. The principles of machine learning verified by these experiments are, of course, applicable to many other situations.
The Alignment Template Approach to Statistical Machine Translation
, 2004
"... A phrasebased statistical machine translation approach — the alignment template approach — is described. This translation approach allows for general manytomany relations between words. Thereby, the context of words is taken into account in the translation model, and local changes in word order f ..."

Learning logical definitions from relations
 MACHINE LEARNING
, 1990
"... This paper describes FOIL, a system that learns Horn clauses from data expressed as relations. FOIL is based on ideas that have proved effective in attributevalue learning systems, but extends them to a firstorder formalism. This new system has been applied successfully to several tasks taken fro ..."

A hierarchical phrasebased model for statistical machine translation
 IN ACL
, 2005
"... We present a statistical phrasebased translation model that uses hierarchical phrases— phrases that contain subphrases. The model is formally a synchronous contextfree grammar but is learned from a bitext without any syntactic information. Thus it can be seen as a shift to the formal machinery of ..."

of syntaxbased translation systems without any linguistic commitment. In our experiments using BLEU as a metric, the hierarchical phrasebased model achieves a relative improvement of 7.5 % over Pharaoh, a stateoftheart phrasebased system.
Benchmarking Least Squares Support Vector Machine Classifiers
 NEURAL PROCESSING LETTERS
, 2001
"... In Support Vector Machines (SVMs), the solution of the classification problem is characterized by a (convex) quadratic programming (QP) problem. In a modified version of SVMs, called Least Squares SVM classifiers (LSSVMs), a least squares cost function is proposed so as to obtain a linear set of eq ..."

Quantum complexity theory
 in Proc. 25th Annual ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing, ACM
, 1993
"... Abstract. In this paper we study quantum computation from a complexity theoretic viewpoint. Our first result is the existence of an efficient universal quantum Turing machine in Deutsch’s model of a quantum Turing machine (QTM) [Proc. Roy. Soc. London Ser. A, 400 (1985), pp. 97–117]. This constructi ..."

the modern (complexity theoretic) formulation of the Church–Turing thesis. We show the existence of a problem, relative to an oracle, that can be solved in polynomial time on a quantum Turing machine, but requires superpolynomial time on a boundederror probabilistic Turing machine, and thus not in the class
WordNet: A Lexical Database for English
 COMMUNICATIONS OF THE ACM
, 1995
"... Because meaningful sentences are composed of meaningful words, any system that hopes to process natural languages as people do must have information about words and their meanings. This information is traditionally provided through dictionaries, and machinereadable dictionaries are now widely avail ..."

Learning the Kernel Matrix with SemiDefinite Programming
, 2002
"... Kernelbased learning algorithms work by embedding the data into a Euclidean space, and then searching for linear relations among the embedded data points. The embedding is performed implicitly, by specifying the inner products between each pair of points in the embedding space. This information ..."
