Learning Implicitly with Noisy Data in Linear Arithmetic [article]

Alexander Philipp Rader, Ionela G. Mocanu, Vaishak Belle, Brendan Juba
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we extend implicit learning in PAC-Semantics to handle noisy data in the form of intervals and threshold uncertainty in the language of linear arithmetic.  ...  While PAC-Semantics offers strong guarantees, learning explicit representations is not tractable even in a propositional setting.  ...  In particular, he proposed a semantics to capture the quality possessed by the output of (probably * Work performed while at the University of Edinburgh. approximately correct) PAC-learning algorithms  ...

Semantic Communication for Simple Goals Is Equivalent to On-line Learning [chapter]

Brendan Juba, Santosh Vempala
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Previous works [11, 6] introduced a model of semantic communication between a "user" and a "server," in which the user attempts to achieve a given goal for communication.  ...  In this work, we are able to obtain such universal strategies for some reasonably general special cases by establishing an equivalence between these special cases and the usual model of mistake-bounded  ...  Acknowledgments This direction was motivated by conversations with Leslie Kaelbling and Leslie Valiant. We thank Oded Goldreich for insightful comments that improved the presentation.  ...

Insights into the Semantics of Reduplication in English and Arabic

Khaled Mohammed Moqbel Al-Asbahi
2020 International Journal of English Linguistics  
These similarities support the belief of some linguists stating that different languages in the world share a variety of ‘universal’ semantic features.  ...  The paper aims to describe and compare the semantics of reduplication in English and Arabic.  ...  Further, this research holds no conflict of interest and is not funded through any source.  ...

Process Information and Evolution

Retained inflectional morphology in pidgins: A typological study

Sarah J. Roberts, Joan Bresnan
2008 Linguistic Typology  
The authors suggest that this may reflect a role of markedness (semantic relevance) in the preservation of inflection. 18.  ...  It is commonly accepted that the process of pidginization leads to a loss of inflectional morphology, but this loss is often not total.  ...  An anonymous reviewer notes however that recent research by Craig Mishler has improved the documentation of Jargon Loucheux, which we hope will allow this language to be included in future surveys of pidgin  ...

A theory of goal-oriented communication

2011 Proceedings of the 30th annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS symposium on Principles of distributed computing - PODC '11  
Indeed, the question of the meaning of communication (i.e., understanding and misunderstanding) does not arise in their studies. 7 Our universal communicators are also similar to the universal agents considered  ...  In particular, the Asymptotic Bounded Optimal Agents, introduced by Russell and Subramanian [13], bear some similarity to the universal communicators we consider here.  ...  As stated above, the semantics (or meaning) of communication was irrelevant to the problem Shannon studied.  ...
