Advances in Lifted Importance Sampling
We consider lifted importance sampling (LIS), a previously proposed approximate inference algorithm for statistical relational learning (SRL) models. LIS achieves substantial vari...

Drought Detection of the Last Century: An MRF-based Approach
Droughts are one of the most damaging climate-related hazards. The late 1960s Sahel drought in Africa and the North American Dust Bowl of the 1930s are two examples of severe drou...

Semantic Parsing with Bayesian Tree Transducers
Many semantic parsing models use tree transformations to map between natural language and meaning representation. However, while tree transformations are central to several state-...

Light field denoising, light field superresolution and stereo camera based refocussing using a GMM light field patch prior
With the recent availability of commercial light field cameras, we can foresee a future in which light field signals will be as common place as images. Hence, there is an immine...

Recursive Segmentation and Recognition Templates for Image Parsing
— Language and image understanding are two major goals of artificial intelligence which can both be conceptually formulated in terms of parsing the input signal into a hierarchi...

Stick-Breaking Beta Processes and the Poisson Process
We show that the stick-breaking construction of the beta process due to Paisley et al. (2010) can be obtained from the characterization of the beta process as a Poisson process. S...

Global Seismic Monitoring: A Bayesian Approach
The automated processing of multiple seismic signals to detect and localize seismic events is a central tool in both geophysics and nuclear treaty verification. This paper report...

Better Hypothesis Testing for Statistical Machine Translation: Controlling for Optimizer Instability
In statistical machine translation, a researcher seeks to determine whether some innovation (e.g., a new feature, model, or inference algorithm) improves translation quality in co...

A Bayesian Model for Unsupervised Semantic Parsing
We propose a non-parametric Bayesian model for unsupervised semantic parsing. Following Poon and Domingos (2009), we consider a semantic parsing setting where the goal is to (1) d...
