• ### Báo cáo khoa học: "WORD-SENSE DISAMBIGUATION METHODS USING STATISTICAL"

We describe a statistical technique for assigning senses to words. An instance of a word is assigned a sense by asking a question about the context in which the word appears. The question is constructed to have high mutual information with the translation of that instance in another language. When we incorporated this method of assigning senses into our statistical machine translation system, the error rate of the system decreased by thirteen percent. language model does not realize that take my own decision is improbable because take and decision no longer fall within a single trigram. ...

• ### Báo cáo khoa học: "The Use of Statistics in Language Research"

The literature concerning the application of statistics to linguistic problems and in particular to mechanical translation is reviewed. The conclusion is that much of the work done is of little direct use for mechanical translation, and that some of it is based on a misapprehension of what statistical techniques can in fact do.

• ### Lecture Statistical techniques in business and economics - Chapter 12: Analysis of variance

When you finish this chapter, you should be able to: Discuss the general idea of analysis of variance, discuss the general idea of analysis of variance, conduct a test of hypothesis to determine whether the variances of two populations are equal, organize data into a one-way and a two-way ANOVA table.

• ### Statistics for Microarrays

This is an unusual statistics book in several respects. It attempts to explain the statistical methodology needed to answer several biological questions. This is in contrast to books that try to teach statistical techniques and hope that the reader can find the appropriate contexts in which to use them. Many an applied scientist has seen this hope turn into despair, not really due to a fault of his own.

• ### Lecture Statistical techniques in business and economics - Chapter 3: Describing Data: measures of central tendency

When you have completed this chapter, you will be able to: Calculate the arithmetic mean, the weighted mean, the median, the mode, and the geometric mean of a given data set; identify the relative positions of the arithmetic mean, median and mode for both symmetric and skewed distributions; point out the proper uses and common misuses of each measure; explain your choice of the measure of central tendency of data; explain your choice of the measure of central tendency of data.
