  • Existing word similarity measures are not robust to data sparseness since they rely only on the point estimation of words’ context profiles obtained from a limited amount of data. This paper proposes a Bayesian method for robust distributional word similarities. The method uses a distribution of context profiles obtained by Bayesian estimation and takes the expectation of a base similarity measure under that distribution.

  • Over the last decade, a Bayesian network has become a popular representation for encoding uncertain expert knowledge in expert systems. A Bayesian network is a graphical model for probabilistic relationships among a set of variables. It is a graphical model that encodes probabilistic relationships among variables of interest. When used in conjunction with statistical techniques, the graphical model has several advantages for data modeling. So what do Bayesian networks and Bayesian methods have to offer? There are at least four benefits described in the following....

  • This book addresses state-of-the-art systems and achievements in various topics in the research field of speech and language technologies. Book chapters are organized in different sections covering diverse problems, which have to be solved in speech recognition and language understanding systems. In the first section machine translation systems based on large parallel corpora using rule-based and statistical-based translation methods are presented.

  • Think Bayes is an introduction to Bayesian statistics using computational methods and Python programming language. Bayesian statistics are usually presented mathematically, but many of the ideas are easier to understand computationally. Contents: Bayes's Theorem; Computational statistics; Tanks and Trains; Urns and Coins; Odds and addends; Hockey; The variability hypothesis; Hypothesis testing.

  • Learning a tree substitution grammar is very challenging due to derivational ambiguity. Our recent approach used a Bayesian non-parametric model to induce good derivations from treebanked input (Cohn et al., 2009), biasing towards small grammars composed of small generalisable productions. In this paper we present a novel training method for the model using a blocked Metropolis-Hastings sampler in place of the previous method’s local Gibbs sampler.

  • We introduce a novel Bayesian approach for deciphering complex substitution ciphers. Our method uses a decipherment model which combines information from letter n-gram language models as well as word dictionaries. Bayesian inference is performed on our model using an efficient sampling technique. We evaluate the quality of the Bayesian decipherment output on simple and homophonic letter substitution ciphers and show that unlike a previous approach, our method consistently produces almost 100% accurate decipherments. ...

  • Sitting at the intersection between statistics and machine learning, Dynamic Bayesian Networks have been applied with much success in many domains, such as speech recognition, vision, and computational biology. While Natural Language Processing increasingly relies on statistical methods, we think they have yet to use Graphical Models to their full potential. In this paper, we report on experiments in learning edit distance costs using Dynamic Bayesian Networks and present results on a pronunciation classification task. ...

  • We propose a new hierarchical Bayesian n-gram model of natural languages. Our model makes use of a generalization of the commonly used Dirichlet distributions called Pitman-Yor processes which produce power-law distributions more closely resembling those in natural languages. We show that an approximation to the hierarchical Pitman-Yor language model recovers the exact formulation of interpolated Kneser-Ney, one of the best smoothing methods for n-gram language models.

  • Stochastic Optimality Theory (Boersma, 1997) is a widely-used model in linguistics that did not have a theoretically sound learning method previously. In this paper, a Markov chain Monte-Carlo method is proposed for learning Stochastic OT Grammars. Following a Bayesian framework, the goal is finding the posterior distribution of the grammar given the relative frequencies of input-output pairs. The Data Augmentation algorithm allows one to simulate a joint posterior distribution by iterating two conditional sampling steps. ...

  • To deal with the lack of reported information, we propose a novel approach to obtain the exposure contained in the net position in interest-rate derivatives. We specify a state space model of a bank’s derivatives trading strategy. We then use Bayesian methods to estimate the bank’s strategy using the joint distribution of interest rates, bank fair and notional values as well as bid-ask spreads. Intuitively, the identification of the bank’s strategy relies on whether the net position (per dollar notional) gains or loses in value over time, together with the history of rates.

  • This book was written for graduate students and researchers in statistics and the social sciences. Our intent in writing the book was to bridge the gap between recent theoretical developments in statistics and the application of these methods to ordinal data. Ordinal data are the most common form of data acquired in the social sciences, but the analysis of such data is generally performed without regard to their ordinal nature.

  • Medical Statistics at a Glance is directed at undergraduate medical students, medical researchers, postgraduates in the biomedical disciplines and at pharmaceutical industry personnel. All of these individuals will, at some time in their professional lives, be faced with quantitative results (their own or those of others) that will need to be critically evaluated and interpreted, and some, of course, will have to pass that dreaded statistics exam! A proper understanding of statistical concepts and methodology is invaluable for these needs.

  • Almost all research in the social and behavioral sciences, and also in eco­ nomic and marketing research, criminological research, and social medical research deals with the analysis of categorical data. Categorical data are quantified as either nominal or ordinal variables. This volume is a collec­ tion of up-to-date studies on modern categorical data analysis methods, emphasizing their application to relevant and interesting data sets.

  • I have three vivid memories about learning statistics as an undergraduate that all involve misconceptions. Firstly, I remember my lecturer telling me that, after obtaining a result that was not statistically significant, I should conclude that timber harvesting did not have an effect (on what, I cannot remember). While the logic was flawed, I have since realized that it is a misconception shared by many ecologists.

  • We present an unsupervised model for joint phrase alignment and extraction using nonparametric Bayesian methods and inversion transduction grammars (ITGs). The key contribution is that phrases of many granularities are included directly in the model through the use of a novel formulation that memorizes phrases generated not only by terminal, but also non-terminal symbols. This allows for a completely probabilistic model that is able to create a phrase table that achieves competitive accuracy on phrase-based machine translation tasks directly from unaligned sentence pairs. ...
