Divergence Estimation for Multidimensional Densities Via $k$-Nearest-Neighbor Distances
TLDR
A new universal estimator of divergence is presented for multidimensional continuous densities based on k-nearest-neighbor (k-NN) distances. Expand

Rapid estimation of camera motion from compressed video with application to video annotation
TLDR
We develop tools based on camera motion for analyzing and annotating a class of structured video using the low-level information available directly from MPEG-compressed video. Expand

The Problem of Induction
The problem of induction is sometimes motivated via a comparison between rules of induction and rules of deduction. Valid deductive rules are necessarily truth preserving, while inductive rules areExpand

Probabilistic Coherence and Proper Scoring Rules
TLDR
This paper provides self-contained proof of a theorem relating probabilistic coherence of forecasts to their non-domination by rival forecasts with respect to any proper scoring rule. Expand

Divergence estimation of continuous distributions based on data-dependent partitions
TLDR
We present a universal estimator of the divergence D(P/spl par/Q) for two arbitrary continuous distributions P and Q satisfying certain regularity conditions. Expand
