Perturb-and-MAP Random Fields: Using Discrete Optimization\\to Learn and Sample from Energy Models
We propose a novel way to induce a random field from an energy function on discrete labels. It amounts to locally injecting noise to the energy potentials, followed by finding t...

Hybrid in-database inference for declarative information extraction
In the database community, work on information extraction (IE) has centered on two themes: how to effectively manage IE tasks, and how to manage the uncertainties that arise in th...

Parallel multivariate slice sampling
Slice sampling provides an easily implemented method for constructing a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm. However, slice sampling has two major drawbacks: (i) it requires...

A Markov Chain Monte Carlo Approach to Stereovision
We propose Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling methods to address uncertainty estimation in disparity computation. We consider this problem at a postprocessing stage, i.e. once the d...

A Stochastic Algorithm for 3D Scene Segmentation and Reconstruction
In this paper, we present a stochastic algorithm by effective Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) for segmenting and reconstructing 3D scenes. The objective is to segment a range image...

An MCMC-Based Particle Filter for Tracking Multiple Interacting Targets
Abstract. We describe a Markov chain Monte Carlo based particle filter that effectively deals with interacting targets, i.e., targets that are influenced by the proximity and/or be...
