Word alignment using recency-vector based approach has recently become popular. One major advantage of these techniques is that unlike other approaches they perform well even if the size of the parallel corpora is small. This makes these algorithms worth-studying for languages where resources are scarce. In this work we studied the performance of two very popular recency-vector based approaches, proposed in (Fung and McKeown, 1994) and (Somers, 1998), respectively, for word alignment in English-Hindi parallel corpus.
Welcome to our online textbook, Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach. We ( Jim Kurose,
Keith Ross, and Addison-Wesley-Longman) think you will find this textbook to be very different than
the other computer networking books that are currently available. Perhaps the most unique and
innovative feature of this textbook is that it is online and accessible through a Web browser. We
believe that our online format has several things going for it.
Biofuels such as bioethanol are becoming a viable alternative
to fossil fuels. Utilizing agricultural biomass for the production
of biofuel has drawn much interest in many science and
engineering disciplines. As one of the major crops, maize
offers promise in this regard. Compared to other crops with
biofuel potential, maize can provide both starch (seed) and
cellulosic (stover) material for bioethanol production.
Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). A. An example of ACD in its acute phase, with sharply demarcated, weeping, eczematous plaques in a perioral distribution. B. ACD in its chronic phase demonstrating an erythematous, lichenified, weeping plaque on skin chronically exposed to nickel in a metal snap. (B, Courtesy of Robert Swerlick, MD; with permission.)
As in other branches of medicine, a complete history should be obtained to emphasize the following features:
1. Evolution of lesions
a. Site of onset
b. Manner in which the eruption progressed or spread
Transnational flows of people, financial resources, goods, information and culture have
recently been increasing in a drastic way and have profoundly transformed the world
(Ritzer and Malone, 2001). This phenomenon has been labeled globalization. As a result, a
great deal of debate and discussion, even controversy (Bird and Stevens, 2003) has taken
place about globalization in various disciplines from different angles. In fact, there seems to
be a controversy in regards to globalization and the contradictory meanings associated with
At the other extreme, each disk controller now has tens of mega-
bytes of storage and a very capable processor. It is quite feasible
to have intelligent disks that offer either database access (SQL or
some other non-procedural language) and even web service ac-
cess. Moving from a block-oriented disk interface to a file inter-
face, and then to a set or service interface has been the goal of
database machine advocates...
Praise from the Reviewers: "The practicality of the subject in a real–world situation distinguishes this book from others available on the market." — Professor Behrouz Far , University of Calgary "This book could replace the computer organization texts now in use that every CS and CpE student must take. . . . It is much needed, well written, and thoughtful." — Professor Larry Bernstein , Stevens Institute of Technology A distinctive, educational text onsoftware performance and scalability
This book is a compilation of chapters written by experts in their field on
various modalities and dimensions of holistic health care and aging. We
envision the book to be a compendium of reliable and authoritative information
on complementary and alternative therapies that health professionals
may use as they seek to improve the health and quality of life
of those in their care.
iOS 6 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach is your code reference and guide to developing solutions on iPad, iPhone, and other iOS 6 SDK devices and platforms. This book provides in-depth code samples and discussions for scenarios that developers face every day. You'll find numerous examples of real-world cases that will enable you to build fully functional applications quickly and efficiently.
The Fifth Edition of Computer Architecture focuses on this dramatic shift, exploring the ways in which software and technology in the cloud are accessed by cell phones, tablets, laptops, and other mobile computing devices. Each chapter includes two real-world examples, one mobile and one datacenter, to illustrate this revolutionary change.
This syndrome (formerly termed nonspecific vaginitis, Haemophilus vaginitis, anaerobic vaginitis, or Gardnerella-associated vaginal discharge) is characterized by symptoms of vaginal malodor and a slightly to moderately increased white discharge, which appears homogeneous, is low in viscosity, and evenly coats the vaginal mucosa. An interesting observation is that new genital HPV infection in young women is associated with increased subsequent risk of developing bacterial vaginosis.
Join the game development revolution today! XNA 3.0 greatly simplifies the development of your own games, lowering the barrier for programmers to get into game development. In XNA, you can start coding your games from the very start, a true revelation compared to other game programming environments. XNA doesn’t sacrifice power for this ease of use—it is built entirely on DirectX technology.
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 115. Approach to the Acutely Ill Infected Febrile Patient
Approach to the Acutely Ill Infected Febrile Patient: Introduction The physician treating the acutely ill febrile patient must be able to recognize infections that require emergent attention. If such infections are not adequately evaluated and treated at initial presentation, the opportunity to alter an adverse outcome may be lost. In this chapter, the clinical presentations of and approach to patients with relatively common infectious disease emergencies are discussed.
Rodents often spend an equal amount of time
exploring both objects, or conspecifics, in the training process. It is important to take into account
any preference for an object other than in testing and training. Continue to discuss
importance of assessing preferences for objects used in object recognition tasks in
Section 6 below.
" Mr. Spardleton looked at me and then at Susan, and Susan looked at him and then at me in that sober wide-eyed way she has, and then they looked at each other and smiled. I guess they realized that I had said something pretty funny. Mr. Spardleton said, "I understand why you think of the situation in terms of brides, but I always think of it in terms of a proud father who sees nothing but perfection in his newborn son." "Yes," I said, "that's a good way to put it, too.
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. ...
In this paper, a computational approach for resolving zero-pronouns in Spanish texts is proposed. Our approach has been evaluated with partial parsing of the text and the results obtained show that these pronouns can be resolved using similar techniques that those used for pronominal anaphora. Compared to other well-known baselines on pronominal anaphora resolution, the results obtained with our approach have been consistently better than the rest.
This paper introduces a new approach to morpho-syntactic analysis through Humor 99 (High-speed Unification Mo.rphology), a reversible and unification-based morphological analyzer which has already been integrated with a variety o f industrial applications. Humor 99 successfully copes with problems o f agglutinative (e.g. Hungarian, Turkish, Estonian) and other (highly) inflectional languages (e.g. Polish, Czech, German) very effectively.
In this paper we describe a new technique for parsing free text: a transformational grammar I is automatically learned that is capable of accurately parsing text into binary-branching syntactic trees with nonterminals unlabelled. The algorithm works by beginning in a very naive state of knowledge about phrase structure. By repeatedly comparing the results of bracketing in the current state to proper bracketing provided in the training corpus, the system learns a set of simple structural transformations that can be applied to reduce error.
