1 Markov Models and Hidden Markov Models (HMMs (Following slides are modified from Prof. Claire Cardie s slides and Prof. Raymond Mooney s slides. Some of he graphs are aken from he exbook.
2 Markov Model ( = Markov Chain A sequence of random variables visiing a se of saes Transiion probabiliy specifies he probabiliy of ransiing from one sae o he oher. Language Model! Markov Assumpion: nex sae depends only on he curren sae and independen of previous hisory. 2

4 Sample Markov Model for POS sar 4 De Noun Verb PropNoun P(PropNoun Verb De Noun = 0.4*0.8*0.25*0.95*0.1= sop
5 Hidden Markov Model (HMM Probabilisic generaive model for sequences. HMM Definiion wih respec o POS agging: Saes = POS ags Observaion = a sequence of words Transiion probabiliy = bigram model for POS ags Observaion probabiliy = probabiliy of generaing each oken (word from a given POS ag Hidden means he exac sequence of saes (a sequence of POS ags ha generaed he observaion (a sequence of words are hidden.. 5

24 HMM Likelihood of Observaion Given a sequence of observaions, O, and a model wih a se of parameers, λ, wha is he probabiliy ha his observaion was generaed by his model: P(O λ? 24
25 HMM Likelihood of Observaion Due o he Markov assumpion, he probabiliy of being in any sae a any given ime only relies on he probabiliy of being in each of he possible saes a ime 1. Forward Algorihm: Uses dynamic programming o exploi his fac o efficienly compue observaion likelihood in O(TN 2 ime. Compue a forward rellis ha compacly and implicily encodes informaion abou all possible sae pahs. 25

32 HMM Learning Supervised Learning: All raining sequences are compleely labeled (agged. Tha is, nohing is really hidden sricly speaking.

48 SemiSupervised Learning EM algorihms can be rained wih a mix of labeled and unlabeled daa. EM basically predics a probabilisic (sof labeling of he insances and hen ieraively rerains using supervised learning on hese prediced labels ( self raining. EM can also exploi supervised daa: 1 Use supervised learning on labeled daa o iniialize he parameers (insead of iniializing hem randomly. 2 Use known labels for supervised daa insead of predicing sof labels for hese examples during reraining ieraions.
49 SemiSupervised Resuls Use of addiional unlabeled daa improves on supervised learning when amoun of labeled daa is very small and amoun of unlabeled daa is large. Can degrade performance when here is sufficien labeled daa o learn a decen model and when unsupervised learning ends o creae labels ha are incompaible wih he desired ones. There are negaive resuls for semisupervised POS agging since unsupervised learning ends o learn semanic labels (e.g. eaing verbs, animae nouns ha are beer a predicing he daa han purely synacic labels (e.g. verb, noun.
50 Conclusions POS Tagging is he lowes level of synacic analysis. I is an insance of sequence labeling, a collecive classificaion ask ha also has applicaions in informaion exracion, phrase chunking, semanic role labeling, and bioinformaics. HMMs are a sandard generaive probabilisic model for sequence labeling ha allows for efficienly compuing he globally mos probable sequence of labels and suppors supervised, unsupervised and semisupervised learning.
