Bayes Factors
, 1995
"... In a 1935 paper, and in his book Theory of Probability, Jeffreys developed a methodology for quantifying the evidence in favor of a scientific theory. The centerpiece was a number, now called the Bayes factor, which is the posterior odds of the null hypothesis when the prior probability on the null ..."

A comparison of event models for Naive Bayes text classification
, 1998
"... Recent work in text classification has used two different firstorder probabilistic models for classification, both of which make the naive Bayes assumption. Some use a multivariate Bernoulli model, that is, a Bayesian Network with no dependencies between words and binary word features (e.g. Larkey ..."

A Simple Estimator of Cointegrating Vectors in Higher Order Cointegrated Systems
 ECONOMETRICA
, 1993
"... Efficient estimators of cointegrating vectors are presented for systems involving deterministic components and variables of differing, higher orders of integration. The estimators are computed using GLS or OLS, and Wald Statistics constructed from these estimators have asymptotic x2 distributions. T ..."

On Discriminative vs. Generative classifiers: A comparison of logistic regression and naive Bayes
, 2001
"... We compare discriminative and generative learning as typified by logistic regression and naive Bayes. We show, contrary to a widely held belief that discriminative classifiers are almost always to be preferred, that there can often be two distinct regimes of performance as the training set size is i ..."

Dropout from higher education: A theoretical synthesis of recent research
 Review of Educational Research
, 1975
"... Despite the very extensive literature on dropout from higher education, much remains unknown about the nature of the dropout process. In large measure, the failure of past research to delineate more clearly the multiple characteristics of dropout can be traced to two major shortcomings; namely, inad ..."

Empirical Bayes Analysis of a Microarray Experiment
 Journal of the American Statistical Association
, 2001
"... Microarrays are a novel technology that facilitates the simultaneous measurement of thousands of gene expression levels. A typical microarray experiment can produce millions of data points, raising serious problems of data reduction, and simultaneous inference. We consider one such experiment in whi ..."

simultaneous inferences concerning which genes were affected by the radiation. Although our focus is on one speci � c experiment, the proposed methods can be applied quite generally. The empirical Bayes inferences are closely related to the frequentist false discovery rate (FDR) criterion. 1.
Estimating Attributes: Analysis and Extensions of RELIEF
, 1994
"... . In the context of machine learning from examples this paper deals with the problem of estimating the quality of attributes with and without dependencies among them. Kira and Rendell (1992a,b) developed an algorithm called RELIEF, which was shown to be very efficient in estimating attributes. Origi ..."

Introduction This paper deals with the problem of estimating the quality of attributes with strong dependencies to other attributes which seems to be the key issue of machine learning in general. Namely, for particular problems (e.q. parity problems of higher degrees) the discovering of dependencies between
Region Competition: Unifying Snakes, Region Growing, and Bayes/MDL for Multiband Image Segmentation
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1996
"... We present a novel statistical and variational approach to image segmentation based on a new algorithm named region competition. This algorithm is derived by minimizing a generalized Bayes/MDL criterion using the variational principle. The algorithm is guaranteed to converge to a local minimum and c ..."

OPTICS: Ordering Points To Identify the Clustering Structure
, 1999
"... Cluster analysis is a primary method for database mining. It is either used as a standalone tool to get insight into the distribution of a data set, e.g. to focus further analysis and data processing, or as a preprocessing step for other algorithms operating on the detected clusters. Almost all of ..."

the intrinsic clustering structure accurately. We introduce a new algorithm for the purpose of cluster analysis which does not produce a clustering of a data set explicitly; but instead creates an augmented ordering of the database representing its densitybased clustering structure. This clusterordering
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. This fact raises the question of whether a classifier with less restr ..."
