Learning to rank with nonsmooth cost functions
 In Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) 20
, 2006
"... The quality measures used in information retrieval are particularly difficult to optimize directly, since they depend on the model scores only through the sorted order of the documents returned for a given query. Thus, the derivatives of the cost with respect to the model parameters are either zero ..."

zero, or are undefined. In this paper, we propose a class of simple, flexible algorithms, called LambdaRank, which avoids these difficulties by working with implicit cost functions. We describe LambdaRank using neural network models, although the idea applies to any differentiable function class. We
Bundle Adjustment  A Modern Synthesis
 VISION ALGORITHMS: THEORY AND PRACTICE, LNCS
, 2000
"... This paper is a survey of the theory and methods of photogrammetric bundle adjustment, aimed at potential implementors in the computer vision community. Bundle adjustment is the problem of refining a visual reconstruction to produce jointly optimal structure and viewing parameter estimates. Topics c ..."

covered include: the choice of cost function and robustness; numerical optimization including sparse Newton methods, linearly convergent approximations, updating and recursive methods; gauge (datum) invariance; and quality control. The theory is developed for general robust cost functions rather than
Learning to rank using gradient descent
 In ICML
, 2005
"... We investigate using gradient descent methods for learning ranking functions; we propose a simple probabilistic cost function, and we introduce RankNet, an implementation of these ideas using a neural network to model the underlying ranking function. We present test results on toy data and on data f ..."

EntropyBased Algorithms For Best Basis Selection
 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
, 1992
"... pretations (position, frequency, and scale), and we have experimented with featureextraction methods that use bestbasis compression for frontend complexity reduction. The method relies heavily on the remarkable orthogonality properties of the new libraries. It is obviously a nonlinear transformat ..."

, we can use information cost functionals defined for signals with normalized energy, since all expansions in a given library will conserve energy. Since two expansions will have the same energy globally, it is not necessary to normalize expansions to compare their costs. This feature greatly enlarges
Nonrigid registration using freeform deformations: Application to breast MR images
 IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging
, 1999
"... Abstract — In this paper we present a new approach for the nonrigid registration of contrastenhanced breast MRI. A hierarchical transformation model of the motion of the breast has been developed. The global motion of the breast is modeled by an affine transformation while the local breast motion i ..."

is described by a freeform deformation (FFD) based on Bsplines. Normalized mutual information is used as a voxelbased similarity measure which is insensitive to intensity changes as a result of the contrast enhancement. Registration is achieved by minimizing a cost function, which represents a combination
Distortion invariant object recognition in the dynamic link architecture
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMPUTERS
, 1993
"... We present an object recognition system based on the Dynamic Link Architecture, which is an extension to classical Artificial Neural Networks. The Dynamic Link Architecture exploits correlations in the finescale temporal structure of cellular signals in order to group neurons dynamically into hig ..."

The performance of the program is evaluated by a statistical analysis of recognition results from a portrait gallery comprising images of 87
An almost ideal demand system.
 American Economic Review,
, 1980
"... Ever since Richard Stone (1954) first estimated a system of demand equations derived explicitly from consumer theory, there has been a continuing search for alternative specifications and functional forms. Many models have been proposed, but perhaps the most important in current use, apart from the ..."

Information Theory and Statistics
, 1968
"... Entropy and relative entropy are proposed as features extracted from symbol sequences. Firstly, a proper Iterated Function System is driven by the sequence, producing a fractaMike representation (CSR) with a low computational cost. Then, two entropic measures are applied to the CSR histogram of th ..."

EndToEnd Arguments In System Design
, 1984
"... This paper presents a design principle that helps guide placement of functions among the modules of a distributed computer system. The principle, called the endtoend argument, suggests that functions placed at low levels of a system may be redundant or of little value when compared with the cost o ..."
