Discriminative Modeling in NLP/SLP
R – INESC-ID Lisboa –
Over a long period generative models such as HMMs are state-of-the-art in NLP/SLP. HMMs are successful in various domains. Speech Recognition, PoS-tagging, G2P, TTS etc…. HMMs have some limitations that recent statistical modeling approaches overcome. These statistical learning algorithms can be grouped under Discriminative Modeling or as in Speech Recognition under Discriminative Training. One of those algorithms is the Conditional Random Field approach. The talk gives an overview what a Conditional Random Field is and the difference between Generative Models and Discriminative Models.

On January 25th, the primary goal is to bring together individuals from all five INESC institutes, fostering an environment that encourages networking, forging new connections, and collectively engaging in a forward-thinking exercise regarding the future of our research fields and the positioning of the INESC group within the European landscape.
There will be a welcome lunch, followed by an afternoon dedicated to collaboration, openness, and curiosity. The event will have a participatory approach, and will be guided by Dirk Stockmans, a highly experienced facilitator who has worked for the European Commission for the last 30 years.
Furthermore, all INESC researchers are invited to submit proposals for e-posters to be displayed at the Winter Meeting. Deadline for submissions is December 10 and more information is available here.
On January 26th, a senior administration and management committee will be held. Participants will be selected by each institute administration by invitation only.
If you would to take part on the 25th of January, please register here by November 30th.
