State-transition cost functions and an application to language translation

Abstract

We define a general method for ranking the solutions of a search process by associating costs with equivalence classes of state transitions of the process. We show how the method accommodates models based on probabilistic, discriminative, and distance cost functions, including assignment of costs to unseen events. By applying the method to our machine… (More)
