Learning through failure

05051.SatoTaisuke.ExtAbstract.418.pdf (0.1 MB)


PRISM, a symbolic-statistical modeling language we have been developing since '97, recently incorporated a program transformation technique to handle failure in generative modeling. I'll show this feature opens a way to new breeds of symbolic models, including EM learning from negative observations, constrained HMMs and finite PCFGs.
