Motivation – Interpreting Ink Hand-drawn diagram Machine interpretation

Graph Construction Vertices are grouped into parts. Each part is assigned a label G Edges, E Vertices, V

Labeled Partitions We assume: We assume: Parts are contiguous. Parts are contiguous. The graph is triangulated. The graph is triangulated. We’re interested in probability distributions over labeled partitions conditioned on observed data. We’re interested in probability distributions over labeled partitions conditioned on observed data.

Conditional Random Fields CRFs (Lafferty et. al.) provide joint labeling of graph vertices. CRFs (Lafferty et. al.) provide joint labeling of graph vertices. Idea: define parts to be contiguous regions with same label. Idea: define parts to be contiguous regions with same label. But… But… Large number of labels needed. Large number of labels needed. Symmetry problems / bias. Symmetry problems / bias. +2+1 +2 +3

A Better Approach… Extend the CRF framework to work directly with labeled partitions. Extend the CRF framework to work directly with labeled partitions. Complexity is improved – don’t need to deal with so many labels. Complexity is improved – don’t need to deal with so many labels. No symmetry problem – we’re working directly with the representation in which the problem is posed.

Consistency Let G and H µ V. Let G and H µ V. Y (G) and Y (H) are consistent if and only if: Y (G) and Y (H) are consistent if and only if: For any vertex in G Å H, Y (G) and Y (H) agree on its label. For any vertex in G Å H, Y (G) and Y (H) agree on its label. For any pair of vertices in G Å H, Y (G) and Y (H) agree on their part membership. For any pair of vertices in G Å H, Y (G) and Y (H) agree on their part membership. Denoted Y (G) v Y (H). Denoted Y (G) v Y (H).

Projection Projection maps labeled partitions onto smaller subgraphs. Projection maps labeled partitions onto smaller subgraphs. If G µ V then, the projection of Y onto G is the unique labeled partition of G which is ‘consistent’ with Y. If G µ V then, the projection of Y onto G is the unique labeled partition of G which is ‘consistent’ with Y.
