Practical valid inferences for the two-sample binomial problem

Michael P. Fay, Sally A. Hunsberger
2021 Statistics Survey  
This apparently simple problem was addressed by Fisher in the 1930's, and has been the subject of many review papers since then.  ...  For example, we consider whether a p-value and its matching confidence interval are compatible, meaning that the p-value rejects at level α if and only if the 1 − α confidence interval excludes all null  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Erica Brittain and anonymous reviewers for comments that improved the paper.  ...

Distributed Inference in the Presence of Eavesdroppers: A Survey [article]

Bhavya Kailkhura, V. Sriram Siddhardh Nadendla, Pramod K. Varshney
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The distributed inference framework comprises of a group of spatially distributed nodes which acquire observations about a phenomenon of interest.  ...  This paper addresses the problem of secure communication in the presence of eavesdroppers. In particular, we focus on efficient mitigation schemes to mitigate the impact of eavesdropping.  ...  We first introduce a taxonomy in Section II where we present a survey on the state-of-the-art on secrecy in distributed inference networks.  ...

The Residence History Inference Problem [article]

Derek Ruths, Caitrin Armstrong
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Here, we formalize the residence assignment problem, which seeks, under constraints associated with the minimum length-of-stay at a residence, the most parsimonious sequence of residence periods and places  ...  Prior work on this topic has skirted the underlying computational modeling of residence inference, focusing on migration patterns themselves.  ...  This problem is effectively a latent attribute inference task where the observational data is giving signal about where the The Residence Inference Problem Inputs: • Location history, H = h 1 , h 2 , .  ...

The Inference Problem and Pervasive Computing

Catherine Ann Dwyer
2009 Social Science Research Network  
A potential solution to this impasse may be found in a privacy condition from the data mining literature known as the -inference problem.‖ The inference problem occurs in data mining when confidential  ...  Privacy issues within pervasive computing systems are most acute when they involve a variation of the inference problem.  ...  THE INFERENCE PROBLEM IN DATA MINING The inference problem has been recognized as a security and privacy issue for databases since the 1970s (Denning, 1982; Denning and Denning, 1979) .  ...

Glassy Nature of the Hard Phase in Inference Problems

Fabrizio Antenucci, Silvio Franz, Pierfrancesco Urbani, Lenka Zdeborová
2019 Physical Review X  
In this work we study the metastable branch for a prototypical inference problem, the low-rank matrix factorization, that presents a hard phase.  ...  An algorithmically hard phase was described in a range of inference problems: even if the signal can be reconstructed with a small error from an information theoretic point of view, known algorithms fail  ...  For a range of inference problems the Bayesian inference naturally leads to statistical physics of systems with disorder, see e.g. [1] .  ...

The Complexity of Some Topological Inference Problems

Shmuel Weinberger
2013 Foundations of Computational Mathematics  
In recent years, there has been a growing amount of work, with a number of notable successes (see, e.g., the surveys [6, 14, 19 ] and the book [38] for an overview, and the recent paper [29] for an outstanding  ...  We give some lower bounds on the description, sample, and computational complexities of the problems of computing dimension, homology, and topological type of a manifold, and detecting singularities for  ...  As noted above, it is a consequence of the known positive results on the topological inference problem (e.g., [3, 11, 17, 28] ) that the embedded data analysis problem has only an exp(V ) growth, not the  ...

The syntactic inference problem for dol-sequences [chapter]

Context in problem solving: a survey

Patrick Brézillon
1999 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
We present in this paper a survey of the literature dealing directly and explicitly with context whatever the domain is. This permits us to have a clear view of the context in AI.  ...  One of the conclusions of this survey is to point out the existence of different types of context along knowledge representation, the mechanisms of reasoning on the knowledge, and the interaction of the  ...  The context of our survey on context is for the cooperative problem solving by a human and a machine.  ...

From one environment to many: The problem of replicability of statistical inferences [article]

James J. Higgins, Michael J. Higgins, Jinguang Lin
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our framework is that of an initial experiment that generates the data and a follow-up experiment that is done the same way except for a change in the research environment.  ...  We assume that the initial experiment satisfies the assumptions of the two-sample t-statistic and that the follow-up experiment is described by a mixed model which includes environmental parameters.  ...  problems (Chawla 2017) .  ...
