Number of pages: 159

Description:
This one-week course will provide an introduction to the maximum entropy principle and the construction of maximum entropy models for natural language processing. Through a combination of lectures and, as local computing facilities permit, hands-on lab exercises, students will investigate the implementation of maximum entropy models for attribute-value grammars, including such topics as ambiguity identification, feature selection, and model training and evaluation.
