A convex optimization method for joint mean and variance parameter estimation of large-margin CDHMM


In this paper, we develop a new class of parameter estimation techniques for the Gaussian continuous-density hidden Markov model (CDHMM), where the discriminative margin among a set of HMMs is used as the objective function for optimization. In addition to optimizing the mean parameters of the large-margin CDHMM, which was attempted in the past, our new… (More)
