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)
—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)
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)
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)
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)
This paper presents a stochastic segmental speech recognizer that models the a posteriori probabilities directly. The main issues concerning the system are segmental phoneme classification, utterance-level aggregation and the pruning of the search space. For phoneme classification artificial neural networks and support vector machines are applied. Phonemic(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)
ROC ('receiver operator characteristics') analysis is a visual as well as numerical method used for assessing the performance of classification algorithms, such as those used for predicting structures and functions from sequence data. This review summarizes the fundamental concepts of ROC analysis and the interpretation of results using examples of sequence(More)
