Predicting Structured Data

Edited by Gökhan BakIr, Thomas Hofmann, Bernhard Schölkopf, Alexander J. Smola, Ben Taskar and S.V.N Vishwanathan

State-of-the-art algorithms and theory in a novel domain of machine learning, prediction when the output has structure.




State-of-the-art algorithms and theory in a novel domain of machine learning, prediction when the output has structure.

Machine learning develops intelligent computer systems that are able to generalize from previously seen examples. A new domain of machine learning, in which the prediction must satisfy the additional constraints found in structured data, poses one of machine learning's greatest challenges: learning functional dependencies between arbitrary input and output domains. This volume presents and analyzes the state of the art in machine learning algorithms and theory in this novel field. The contributors discuss applications as diverse as machine translation, document markup, computational biology, and information extraction, among others, providing a timely overview of an exciting field.
