A relation between restricted and unrestricted weighted Motzkin paths
 J. Integer Seq
, 2006
"... We consider those lattice paths that use the steps “up”, “level”, and “down ” with assigned weights w, b, c. In probability theory, the total weight is 1. In combinatorics, we replace weight by the number of colors. Here we give a combinatorial proof of a relation between restricted and unrestricted ..."
Computing semantic relatedness using Wikipediabased explicit semantic analysis
 In Proceedings of the 20th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence
, 2007
"... Computing semantic relatedness of natural language texts requires access to vast amounts of commonsense and domainspecific world knowledge. We propose Explicit Semantic Analysis (ESA), a novel method that represents the meaning of texts in a highdimensional space of concepts derived from Wikipedi ..."

Wikipedia. We use machine learning techniques to explicitly represent the meaning of any text as a weighted vector of Wikipediabased concepts. Assessing the relatedness of texts in this space amounts to comparing the corresponding vectors using conventional metrics (e.g., cosine). Compared

The exact form of a gradientfollowing learning algorithm for completely recurrent networks running in continually sampled time is derived and used as the basis for practical algorithms for temporal supervised learning tasks. These algorithms have: (1) the advantage that they do not require a precisely defined training interval, operating while the network runs; and (2) the disadvantage that they require nonlocal communication in the network being trained and are computationally expensive. These algorithms are shown to allow networks having recurrent connections to learn complex tasks requiring the retention of information over time periods having either fixed or indefinite length. 1 Introduction A major problem in connectionist theory is to develop learning algorithms that can tap the full computational power of neural networks. Much progress has been made with feedforward networks, and attention has recently turned to developing algorithms for networks with recurrent connections, wh...
Bayesian Network Classifiers

Recent work in supervised learning has shown that a surprisingly simple Bayesian classifier with strong assumptions of independence among features, called naive Bayes, is competitive with stateoftheart classifiers such as C4.5.

Recent work in supervised learning has shown that a surprisingly simple Bayesian classifier with strong assumptions of independence among features, called naive Bayes, is competitive with stateoftheart classifiers such as C4.5. This fact raises the question of whether a classifier with less restrictive assumptions can perform even better. In this paper we evaluate approaches for inducing classifiers from data, based on the theory of learning Bayesian networks. These networks are factored representations of probability distributions that generalize the naive Bayesian classifier and explicitly represent statements about independence. Among these approaches we single out a method we call Tree Augmented Naive Bayes (TAN), which outperforms naive Bayes, yet at the same time maintains the computational simplicity (no search involved) and robustness that characterize naive Bayes. We experimentally tested these approaches, using problems from the University of California at Irvine repository, and compared them to C4.5, naive Bayes, and wrapper methods for feature selection.
Interior Point Methods in Semidefinite Programming with Applications to Combinatorial Optimization
 SIAM Journal on Optimization
, 1993
"... We study the semidefinite programming problem (SDP), i.e the problem of optimization of a linear function of a symmetric matrix subject to linear equality constraints and the additional condition that the matrix be positive semidefinite. First we review the classical cone duality as specialized to S ..."

We study the semidefinite programming problem (SDP), i.e the problem of optimization of a linear function of a symmetric matrix subject to linear equality constraints and the additional condition that the matrix be positive semidefinite. First we review the classical cone duality as specialized to SDP. Next we present an interior point algorithm which converges to the optimal solution in polynomial time. The approach is a direct extension of Ye's projective method for linear programming. We also argue that most known interior point methods for linear programs can be transformed in a mechanical way to algorithms for SDP with proofs of convergence and polynomial time complexity also carrying over in a similar fashion. Finally we study the significance of these results in a variety of combinatorial optimization problems including the general 01 integer programs, the maximum clique and maximum stable set problems in perfect graphs, the maximum k partite subgraph problem in graphs, and va...

This work focuses on algorithms which learn from examples to perform multiclass text and speech categorization tasks. Our approach is based on a new and improved family of boosting algorithms. We describe in detail an implementation, called BoosTexter, of the new boosting algorithms for text categorization tasks. We present results comparing the performance of BoosTexter and a number of other textcategorizationalgorithms on a variety of tasks. We conclude by describing the application of our system to automatic calltype identification from unconstrained spoken customer responses.
