We present an architecture and an on-line learning algorithm and apply it to the problem of part-ofspeech tagging. The architecture presented, SNOW, is a network of linear separators in the feature space, utilizing the Winnow update algorithm. Multiplicative weight-update algorithms such as Winnow have been shown to have exceptionally good behavior when applied to very high dimensional problems, and especially when the target concepts depend on only a small subset of the features in the feature space. ...
The central questions are: How useful is information about part-of-speech frequency for text categorisation? Is it feasible to limit word features to content words for text classifications? This is examined for 5 domain and 4 genre classification tasks using LIMAS, the German equivalent of the Brown corpus. Because LIMAS is too heterogeneous, neither question can be answered reliably for any of the tasks. However, the results suggest that both questions have to be examined separately for each task at hand, because in some cases, the additional information can indeed improve performance. ...
On a multi-dimensional text categorization task, we compare the effectiveness of a feature based approach with the use of a stateof-the-art sequential learning technique that has proven successful for tasks such as “email act classification”. Our evaluation demonstrates for the three separate dimensions of a well established annotation scheme that novel thread based features have a greater and more consistent impact on classification performance.
AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video, and Integrated Data), the latest development from Cisco Systems is redefining the way businesses communicate. AVVID allows businesses to transmit voice, data, and video over a single integrated architecture, whereas in the past three separate systems were required.
Administering Cisco AVVID Applications is a professional reference detailing the strategies, tactics, and methods for utilizing Cisco software to configure and maintain Cisco networks and hardware infrastructures.
Chapters in the first part of the book cover all the essential speech processing techniques for building robust, automatic speech recognition systems: the representation for speech signals and the methods for speech-features extraction, acoustic and language modeling, efficient algorithms for searching the hypothesis space, and multimodal approaches to speech recognition.
The neurons of the corpus striatum receive an excitatory input from the cerebral cortex and the thalamus.
The major outputs project to the globus pallidus and the substantia nigra pars reticula (SNr), and use
gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as a transmitter. Major efferent pathways from the globus pallidus
interna and the SNr project to the thalamus. Feedback to the striatum is through the dopaminergic
striatonigral pathway originating in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc; Figure 1).
These separate pathways utilize different neuropeptides and dopamine receptors.
Oracle Connection Manager is a software component that resides on its own computer,
separate from a client or an Oracle database server. It proxies and screens requests for
the database server. In addition, it multiplexes database sessions.
In its session multiplexing role, Oracle Connection Manager funnels multiple sessions
through a single transport protocol connection to a particular destination.

We developed a new method of transforming Japanese case particles when transforming Japanese passive sentences into active sentences. It separates training data into each input particle and uses machine learning for each particle.
In conclusion, let us outline a diﬀerent argument, very much in the spirit of
Lectures 8 and 5.
We considered in these lectures the space of polynomials of a certain type (such
as x3 + px + q or x5 − x + a) and saw that the set of polynomials with multiple
roots separated the whole space into pieces, corresponding to the number of roots
of a polynomial. The set of polynomials with multiple roots is a (very singular)
hypersurface obtained by equating the discriminant of a polynomial to zero.
The objectives of Alberta Environment’s approach to setting wastewater release
standards are to ensure water quality objectives are maintained, that appropriate pollution
prevention and control technologies are adopted so that substance releases to receiving
waters are minimized. Two standards are developed to assess the limit that should be
applied in an approval: one standard is based on best available technology economically
achievable, and the second is based on maintaining water quality objectives. The
technology-based standard is the minimum effort required. ...
Chapter 4 present the basics of computation. In particular, this chapter discuss expressions, how to iterate over a series of values (“iteration”), and select between two alternative actions (“selection”). This chapter also show how a particular sub-computation can be named and specified separately as a function.
The following chapters discuss architects who
have honed digital-fabrication techniques on
pecific projects. Each discussion is accompanied by
a detailed breakdown of the fabrication technique,
providing insight into the recent projects featured in
ach chapter. These are projects that concentrate on
he fertile realm of one-to-one-scale experimentation,
which demands reciprocity between design and
mpirical innovation. The final outcomes hinge on
he ability to reconcile the developmental shifts in
material and working method.
JBuilder provides several features and incorporates various tools to
provide support for the Extensible Markup Language (XML). XML is a
platform-independent method of structuring information. Because XML
separates the content of a document from the structure, it can be a useful
means of exchanging data. For example, XML can be used to transfer data
between databases and Java programs.
The theoretical manner in which periodontal disease progresses has long been a subject of
debate. It is currently agreed that destructive periodontal disease progresses by means of
asynchronous bursts of activity (Haffajee and Socransky 1986). According to this theory,
periodontal tissue support is lost during short, acute episodes followed by prolonged
periods of quiescence (Reddy, Palcanis, and Geurs 1997).
The book includes most of the source code for version 3.6 of the compiler, which was written as a literate program using noweb. As of July 2011 the current version of LCC is 4.2, but much of the book still applies to this version. The major change since the book was published is in the code-generator interface, which is described in a separate document. The Lcc-win32 or LccWin32 system is a full featured C Development Environment for the Microsoft Windows operating system, written by Jacob Navia. He continued the work of Hanson and Fraser, who wrote the original LCC compiler....
The vocabulary component of the course is designed to develop students' awareness and ability across a wide range of vocabulary skills. The first section focuses on effective dictionary skills, as a key foundation for further vocabulary development. Subsequent sections feature a variety of topic vocabulary and idioms, and there are also three separate strands which run throughout the book: word formation (including word families, collocation and phrasal verbs).
In this eBook I occasionally make comparisons between the
D200 and previous Nikon models. In general, whenever this
eBook uses the term D1 or D1 series, I’m referring to the
entire D1 family (i.e. the D1, D1h, and D1x). The same is true
of the D2 family (D2h, D2hs, and D2x). Use of an individual
model name in the text indicates a model-specific feature or
characteristic. In tables, if there are differences between the
cameras, I’ve either added columns for each camera, or
separated the information into model-specific tables....
