Silent HMMs: Generalized Representation of Hidden Semi-Markov Models and Hierarchical HMMs

Kei Wakabayashi
2019 Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing  
Hidden semi-Markov models (HSMMs) and hierarchical hidden Markov models (HHMMs) are PFSMs that have been successfully applied to a wide variety of applications by extending HMMs to make the extracted patterns  ...  In this paper, we prove that silent hidden Markov models (silent HMMs) are flexible models that have more expressive power than HSMMs and HHMMs.  ...  Several kinds of PFSMs, such as hidden semi-Markov models (HSMMs) (Moore and Savic, 2004; Yu, 2010) and hierarchical hidden Markov models (Fine et al., 1998; Wakabayashi and Miura, 2012) , reflect several  ...

2006 Behavior Research Methods  
Brand and Kettnaker (2000) have used an entropy-based function, instead of the maximum- likelihood estimator in the E-step of the EM-algorithm, for learning parameters of hidden Markov models (HMMs).  ...  The advantage of the techniques above for topology learning of Markov models is that they work in a completely unsupervised way.  ...

We introduce, analyze and demonstrate a recursive hierarchical generalization of the widely used hidden Markov models, which we name Hierarchical Hidden Markov Models (HHMM).  ...  We then use the trained model for automatic hierarchical parsing of observation sequences. We describe two applications of our model and its parameter estimation procedure.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Yoshua Bengio and Raj Iyer for helpful comments.  ...

Inference and parameter estimation on hierarchical belief networks for image segmentation

Christian Wolf, Gérald Gavin
2010 Neurocomputing  
We introduce a new causal hierarchical belief network for image segmentation. Contrary to classical tree structured (or pyramidal) models, the factor graph of the network contains cycles.  ...  Each level of the hierarchical structure features the same number of sites as the base level and each site on a given level has several neighbors on the parent level.  ...  We propose therefore a new model, which combines the advantages of causal hierarchical models with the shift invariance of stationary Markov random fields.  ...
