IN the course of an analysis of several samples of technical Russian undertaken as part of a study in mechanical translation, a number of statistical data reflecting the structure of these samples were compiled. One of these, the distribution of word length, is presented here as Fig.
Iterative bootstrapping algorithms are typically compared using a single set of handpicked seeds. However, we demonstrate that performance varies greatly depending on these seeds, and favourable seeds for one algorithm can perform very poorly with others, making comparisons unreliable. We exploit this wide variation with bagging, sampling from automatically extracted seeds to reduce semantic drift. However, semantic drift still occurs in later iterations.
Frequency distribution models tuned to words and other linguistic events can predict the number of distinct types and their frequency distribution in samples of arbitrary sizes. We conduct, for the ﬁrst time, a rigorous evaluation of these models based on cross-validation and separation of training and test data. Our experiments reveal that the prediction accuracy of the models is marred by serious overﬁtting problems, due to violations of the random sampling assumption in corpus data. We then propose a simple pre-processing method to alleviate such non-randomness problems. ...
This paper suggests refinements for the Distributional Similarity Hypothesis. Our proposed hypotheses relate the distributional behavior of pairs of words to lexical entailment – a tighter notion of semantic similarity that is required by many NLP applications. To automatically explore the validity of the defined hypotheses we developed an inclusion testing algorithm for characteristic features of two words, which incorporates corpus and web-based feature sampling to overcome data sparseness. ...
With a few exceptions, discriminative training in statistical machine translation (SMT) has been content with tuning weights for large feature sets on small development data. Evidence from machine learning indicates that increasing the training sample size results in better prediction. The goal of this paper is to show that this common wisdom can also be brought to bear upon SMT.
We introduce the zipfR package, a powerful and user-friendly open-source tool for LNRE modeling of word frequency distributions in the R statistical environment. We give some background on LNRE models, discuss related software and the motivation for the toolkit, describe the implementation, and conclude with a complete sample session showing a typical LNRE analysis.
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. ...

Chapter 8 - Sampling methods and the central limit theorem. After completing this unit, you should be able to: Explain why a sample is often the only feasible way to learn something about a population, describe methods to select a sample, define sampling error, describe the sampling distribution of the sample mean,...
A java application can run inside a JVM and can only invoke the
methods of the classes available inside this JVM
• Distributed computing or processing resolves around clientserver
technology where several client programs communicate
with one or more server applications.An RMI application has to expose methods,
which remote clients can invoke.
• These methods which are meant to be
remote, should be defined in an interface
which extends the java.rmi.Remote
Statistical procedures of estimation and inference are most frequently justified in econometric work on the basis of certain desirable asymptotic properties. One estimation procedure may, for example, be selected over another because it is known to provide consistent and asymptotically efficient parameter estimates
under certain stochastic environments.
Modeling Hydrologic Change: Statistical Methods is about modeling systems where
change has affected data that will be used to calibrate and test models of the systems
and where models will be used to forecast system responses after change occurs.
The focus is not on the hydrology. Instead, hydrology serves as the discipline from
which the applications are drawn to illustrate the principles of modeling and the
detection of change. All four elements of the modeling process are discussed:
conceptualization, formulation, calibration, and verification.
A representative sample survey of 1273 persons aged 60 and older living in private households was
conducted in an area covering over half of Cambodia's population which includes Phnom Penh and the
five most populated provinces (Kampong Cham, Kandal, Prey Veng, Battambang, and Takeo).
location of the provinces covered are shown in Figure 1. Sampling procedures are described in detail in
Appendix A. Samples were drawn separately for Phnom Penh and the other five provinces taken
collectively using somewhat different procedures for the two domains.
