Variational Bayesian image modelling
We present a variational Bayesian framework for performing inference, density estimation and model selection in a special class of graphical models--Hidden Markov Random Fields (H...

Learning to compete, compromise, and cooperate in repeated general-sum games
Learning algorithms often obtain relatively low average payoffs in repeated general-sum games between other learning agents due to a focus on myopic best-response and one-shot Nas...

A general regression technique for learning transductions
The problem of learning a transduction, that is a string-to-string mapping, is a common problem arising in natural language processing and computational biology. Previous methods ...

Predicting probability distributions for surf height using an ensemble of mixture density networks
There is a range of potential applications of Machine Learning where it would be more useful to predict the probability distribution for a variable rather than simply the most lik...

Recognition and reproduction of gestures using a probabilistic framework combining PCA, ICA and HMM
This paper explores the issue of recognizing, generalizing and reproducing arbitrary gestures. We aim at extracting a representation that encapsulates only the key aspects of the ...

Learning to rank using gradient descent
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...

Learning class-discriminative dynamic Bayesian networks
In many domains, a Bayesian network's topological structure is not known a priori and must be inferred from data. This requires a scoring function to measure how well a propo...

Reducing overfitting in process model induction
In this paper, we review the paradigm of inductive process modeling, which uses background knowledge about possible component processes to construct quantitative models of dynamic...

New approaches to support vector ordinal regression
In this paper, we propose two new support vector approaches for ordinal regression, which optimize multiple thresholds to define parallel discriminant hyperplanes for the ordinal ...

Clustering through ranking on manifolds
Clustering aims to find useful hidden structures in data. In this paper we present a new clustering algorithm that builds upon the consistency method (Zhou, et.al., 2003), a semi-...
