We present the learning system Maccent which addresses the novel task of stochastic MAximum ENTropy modeling with Clausal Constraints. Maximum Entropy method is a Bayesian method based on the principle that the target stochastic model should be as uniform as possible, subject to known constraints. Maccent incorporates clausal constraints that are based on the evaluation of Prolog clauses in examples represented as Prolog programs. We build on an existing maximum-likelihood approach to maximumâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
