The core vector machine (CVM) is a recent approach for scaling up kernel methods based on the notion of minimum enclosing ball (MEB). Though conceptually simple, an efficient implementation still requires a sophisticated numerical solver. In this paper, we introduce the enclosing ball (EB) problem where the ball's radius is fixed and thus does not have to(More)
We present an ecient hybrid method for aligning sentences with their translations in a parallel bilingual corpus. The new algorithm is composed of a length-based and anchor matching method that uses Named Entity recognition. This algorithm combines the speed of length-based models with the accuracy of anchor nding methods. The accuracy of nding cognates for(More)
Kernel-based nonlinear feature extraction and classification algorithms are a popular new research direction in machine learning. This paper examines their applicability to the classification of phonemes in a phonological awareness drilling software package. We first give a concise overview of the nonlinear feature extraction methods such as kernel(More)
MOTIVATION Distance measures built on the notion of text compression have been used for the comparison and classification of entire genomes and mitochondrial genomes. The present study was undertaken in order to explore their utility in the classification of protein sequences. RESULTS We constructed compression-based distance measures (CBMs) using the(More)
This paper examines the applicability of some learning techniques for speech recognition, more precisely, for the classification of phonemes represented by a particular segment model. The methods compared were TiMBL (the IB1 algorithm), C4.5 (ID3 tree learning), OC1 (oblique tree learning), artificial neural nets (ANN), Gaussian mixture modeling (GMM) and,(More)
Large-margin methods, such as support vector machines (SVMs), have been very successful in classification problems. Recently, maximum margin discriminant analysis (MMDA) was proposed that extends the large-margin idea to feature extraction. It often outperforms traditional methods such as kernel principal component analysis (KPCA) and kernel Fisher(More)
A highly accurate Named Entity (NE) corpus for Hungarian that is publicly available for research purposes is introduced in the paper, along with its main properties. The results of experiments that apply various Machine Learning models and classifier combination schemes are also presented to serve as a benchmark for further research based on the corpus. The(More)
Here we seek to understand the similarities and differences between two speech recognition approaches, namely the HMM/ANN hybrid and the posterior-based segmental model. Both these techniques create local posterior probability estimates and combine these estimates into global posteriors – but they are built on somewhat different concepts and mathematical(More)
