Directed graphical models (the case of lexical alignment models)
08/12/2016, 1pm, Science Park C0.110

Invited lecture for NLP1 at UvA. I cover basic notions about directed graphical models and present IBM1 as an application of latent variable modelling. I also present maximum likelihood estimation via expectation maximisation for categorical distributions.

Sampling (for unsupervised language learning)
23/02/2015, 9am, Science Park G4.15

Guest lecture for Jelle Zuidema’s course on Unsupervised Language Learning at UvA. In this one hour talk, I present sampling methods and their role in performing MLE and/or posterior inference with special attention to the case of parsing.
