Note that “good” is The name Of the dogj So it is a Noun! The likelihood of a particular “labeled” sequence of observations (e.g., p(“Dog”/NOUN,”is”/VERB,”Good”/NOUN|{aij},{bkm})) may be computed Using the “direct calculation” method using following simple graphical algorithm. Specifically, p(K3/S1, K2/S2, K1/S1 |{aij},{bkm}))= 1b13a12b22a21b11**Extension to case where the likelihood of the observations**given parameters is needed(e.g., p( “Dog”, ”is”, ”good” | {aij},{bij}) KILLER EQUATION!!!!!**Efficiency of Calculations is Important (e.g., Model-Fit)**• Assume 1 multiplication per microsecond • Assume N=1000 word vocabulary and T=7 word sentence. • (2T+1)NT+1 multiplications by “direct calculation” yields (2(7)+1)(1000)(7+1) is about475,000 million years of computer time!!! • 2N2T multiplications using “forward method”is about 14 seconds of computer time!!!**Forward, Backward, and Viterbi Calculations**• Forward calculation methods are thus very useful. • Forward, Backward, and Viterbi Calculations will now be discussed.**S0**S1 Forward Calculations – Overview TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 b11=0.6 b13=0.3 a11=0.7 S1 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 S2 b23=0.2 a22=0.5 b21=0.1 b22=0.1 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K1 K2 K3 K3**S0**S1 Forward Calculations – Time 2 (1 word example) TIME 2 NOTE: that 1 (2)+ 2 (2) is the likelihood of the observation/word “K3”in this “1 word example” K1 K2 K3 b13=0.3 a11=0.7 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 a22=0.5 b23=0.2 K1 K2 K3**S0**S1 Forward Calculations – Time 3 (2 word example) TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 1(3) b11=0.6 a11=0.7 S1 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 S2 a22=0.5 b21=0.1 b22=0.1 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3**S0**S1 Forward Calculations – Time 4 (3 word example) TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 b13=0.3 b11=0.6 a11=0.7 S1 S1 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 S2 S2 a22=0.5 b21=0.1 b23=0.2 b22=0.1 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K1 K2 K3 K3**Forward Calculation of Likelihood Function (“emit and**jump”)**S0**S1 Backward Calculations – Overview TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 b11=0.6 b13=0.3 a11=0.7 S1 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 S2 b23=0.2 a22=0.5 b21=0.1 b22=0.1 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K1 K2 K3 K3**Backward Calculations – Time 4**TIME 4 K1 K2 K3 b11`=0.6 S1 S2 b21=0.1 K1 K2 K3**Backward Calculations – Time 3**TIME 3 K1 K2 K3 b11`=0.6 S1 S2 b21=0.1 K1 K2 K3**Backward Calculations – Time 2**TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 NOTE: that 1 (2)+ 2 (2) is the likelihood the observation/word sequence “K2,K1”in this “2 word example” K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 b13=0.3 a11=0.7 S1 S1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 a22=0.5 S2 S2 b23=0.2 b22=0.7 K1 K2 K1 K2 K3 K3**S0**S1 Backward Calculations – Time 1 TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 2 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K3 b12=0.1 b11=0.6 b13=0.3 a11=0.7 S1 S1 1 a12=0.3 a21=0.5 2 S2 S2 S2 b23=0.2 a22=0.5 b21=0.1 b22=0.1 K1 K2 K3 K1 K2 K1 K2 K3 K3**Backward Calculation of Likelihood Function (“EMIT AND**JUMP”)**You get same answer going forward or backward!!**Backward Forward**The Forward-Backward Method**• Note the forward method computes: • Note the backward method computes (t>1): • We can do the forward-backward methodwhich computes p(K1,…,KT) using formula (using any choice of t=1,…,T+1!):**Example Forward-Backward Calculation!**Backward Forward**Solution to Problem 1**• The “hard part” of the 1st Problem was to find the likelihood of the observations for an HMM • We can now do this using either theforward, backward, or forward-backwardmethod.**Solution to Problem 2: Viterbi Algorithm(Computing “Most**Probable” Labeling) • Consider direct calculation of labeledobservations • Previously we summedthese likelihoods together across all possible labelings to solve the first problemwhich was to compute the likelihood of the observationsgiven the parameters (Hard part of HMM Question 1!). • We solved this problem using forward or backward method. • Now we want to compute all possible labelings and theirrespective likelihoods and pick the labeling which isthe largest!
