Evidential-EM Algorithm Applied to Progressively Censored Observations [chapter]

Kuang Zhou, Arnaud Martin, Quan Pan
2014 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Evidential-EM (E2M) algorithm is an effective approach for computing maximum likelihood estimations under finite mixture models, especially when there is uncertain information about data.  ...  The prior uncertain information is expressed by belief functions, while the pseudo-likelihood function is derived based on imprecise observations and prior knowledge.  ...  The censored data provide some kind of imprecise information for reliability analysis. It is interesting to evaluate the reliability performance for items with mixture distributions.  ...

Technical Gestures Recognition by Set-Valued Hidden Markov Models with Prior Knowledge [chapter]

Yann Soullard, Alessandro Antonucci, Sébastien Destercke
