2 Presentation Outline Introduction to Structured Perceptron ILP-CRF Model Averaged Perceptron Latent Variable Perceptron

3 Motivation An algorithm to learn weights for structured prediction Alternative to POS tagging with MEMM and CRF (Collins 2002) Convergence guarantees under certain conditions even for inseparable data Generalizes to new examples and other sequence labeling problems

4 POS Tagging Example D N V A D N V A D N V A D N V A D N V A Example:the mansawdog

5 MEMM Approach Conditional model: probability of the current state given previous state and current observation For tagging problem, define local features for each tag in context Features are often indicator functions Learn parameter vector α with Generalized Iterative Scaling or gradient descent

6 Global Features Local features are defined only for a single label Global features are defined for an observed sequence and a possible label sequence Simple version: global features are local features summed over an observation-label sequence pair Compared to original perceptron algorithm, we have prediction of a vector of labels instead of a single label Which of the possible incorrect label vectors do we use as the negative example in training?

7 Structured Perceptron Algorithm

8 Properties

9 Global vs. Local Learning Global learning (IBT): constraints are used during training Local learning (L+I): classifiers are trained without constraints, constraints are applied later to produce global output Example: ILP-CRF model [Roth and Yih 2005]

10 Perceptron IBT

11 Perceptron I+L

12 ILP-CRF Introduction [Roth and Yih 2005] ILP-CRF model for Semantic Role Labeling as a sequence labeling problem Viterbi inference for CRFs can include constraints Cannot handle long-range or general constraints Viterbi is a shortest path problem that can be solved with ILP Use integer linear programming to express general constraints during inference Allows incorporation of expressive constraints, including long-range constraints between distant tokens that cannot be handled by Viterbi s A B C A B C A B C A B C A B C t

13 ILP-CRF Models CRF trained with max log-likelihood CRF trained with voted perceptron I+L IBT Local training (L+I) Perceptron, winnow, voted perceptron, voted winnow

14 ILP-CRF Results Sequential Models Local L+I IBT

15 ILP-CRF Conclusions Performance of local learning models perform poorly improves dramatically when constraints are added at evaluation Performance is comparable to IBT methods The best models for global and local training show comparable results L+I vs. IBT: L+I requires fewer training examples, is more efficient, outperforms IBT in most situations (unless local problems are difficult to solve) [Punyakanok et. al, IJCAI 2005]

16 Variations: Voted Perceptron For iteration t=1,…,T For example i=1,…,n Given parameter,by Viterbi Decoding, Get sequence labels for one example Each example define a tagging sequence. The voted perceptron: takes the most frequently ocurring output in the set

17 Variations: Voted Perceptron Averaged algorithm(Collins‘02): approximation of the voted method. It takes the averaging parameter instead of final parameter Performance: Higher F-Measure, Lower error rate Greater Stability on variance in its scores Variation: modified averaged algorithm for latent perceptron

18 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Model Definition is the parameter for perceptron. is the feature encoding function mapping to feature vector In NER task, x is word sequence, y is the named-entity type sequence, h is the hidden latent variable sequence. Features: unigram bigram for word, POS and orthography (prefix, upper/lower case) Why latent variables? Capture latent dependencies (i.e. hidden sub-structure)

19 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Purely Latent Structure Perceptron(Connor’s) Training(Structure perceptron with margin) C: margin Alpha: learning rate Variation: modified averaging parameter method(Sun’s): re-initiate the parameter with averaged parameter in each k iteration. Advantage: reduce overfitting of the latent perceptron

20 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Disadvantage of purely latent perceptron: h* is found and then forgotten for each x. Solution: Online Latent Classifier (Connor’s) Two classifiers: latent classifier: parameter: u label classifier: parameter: w

21 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Online Latent Classifier Training(Connor’s)

22 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Experiments: Bio-NER with purely latent perceptron cc: cut-off Odr:#order dependency Train-time F-measure High-order

23 Variations: Latent Structure Perceptron Experiments: Semantic Role Labeling with argument/predicate as latent structure X: She likes yellow flowers (sentence) Y: agent predicate ------ patient (role) H: predicate: only one; argument: at least one (latent structure) Optimization for (h*,y*): search all possible argument/predicate structure. For more complex data, need other methods. On test set:
