A Maximum Entropy Approach to Natural Language Processing
by

Publisher: Association for Computational Linguistics
Number of pages: 36

Description:
The authors describe a method for statistical modeling based on maximum entropy. They present a maximum-likelihood approach for automatically constructing maximum entropy models and describe how to implement this approach efficiently, using as examples several problems in natural language processing.
