MDPs with Non-Deterministic Policies
Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) have been extensively studied and used in the context of planning and decision-making, and many methods exist to find the optimal policy for probl...

Human Active Learning
We investigate a topic at the interface of machine learning and cognitive science. Human active learning, where learners can actively query the world for information, is contraste...

Recursive Segmentation and Recognition Templates for 2D 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 hierarchical ...

Accelerating Bayesian Inference over Nonlinear Differential Equations with Gaussian Processes
Identification and comparison of nonlinear dynamical system models using noisy and sparse experimental data is a vital task in many fields, however current methods are computation...

From Online to Batch Learning with Cutoff-Averaging
We present cutoff averaging, a technique for converting any conservative online learning algorithm into a batch learning algorithm. Most online-to-batch conversion techniques work...

A Scalable Hierarchical Distributed Language Model
Neural probabilistic language models (NPLMs) have been shown to be competitive with and occasionally superior to the widely-used n-gram language models. The main drawback of NPLMs...

Mixed Membership Stochastic Blockmodels
Consider data consisting of pairwise measurements, such as presence or absence of links between pairs of objects. These data arise, for instance, in the analysis of protein intera...

Generative and Discriminative Learning with Unknown Labeling Bias
We apply robust Bayesian decision theory to improve both generative and discriminative learners under bias in class proportions in labeled training data, when the true class propo...

Multi-Level Active Prediction of Useful Image Annotations for Recognition
We introduce a framework for actively learning visual categories from a mixture of weakly and strongly labeled image examples. We propose to allow the categorylearner to strategic...
