Unified frame and segment based models for automatic speech recognition
Found in: Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE International Conference on
By Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Kuansan Wang
Issue Date:June 2000
pp. II1017-II1020
In this paper, we propose an analytically tractable framework that integrates the frame and segment based acoustic modeling techniques. We combine the two approaches by jointly modeling their respective hidden Markov processes. Since the joint process is b...
 
Tangerine: a large vocabulary Mandarin dictation system
Found in: Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE International Conference on
By Yuqing Gao, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Zhiwei Lin, G. Loudon, S. Yogananthan, Baosheng Yuan
Issue Date:May 1995
pp. 77-80
The text input for non-alphabetic languages, such as Chinese, has been a decades-long problem. Chinese dictation using large vocabulary speech recognition provides a convenient mode of text entry. In contrast to a character based dictation system, a word-b...
 
Towards large vocabulary Mandarin Chinese speech recognition
Found in: Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE International Conference on
By Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Baosheng Yuan, Yen-Lu Chow, S. Narayan, Kai-Fu Lee
Issue Date:April 1994
pp. 545-548
Although commercial dictation products are beginning to emerge for English, the existence of a convenient keyboard has prevented pervasive use of dictation. On the other hand, for non alphabetic languages like Chinese, there is no convenient input method. ...
 
Automatic extraction of web data records containing user-generated content
Found in: Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management (CIKM '10)
By Chin-Yew Lin, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Jing Liu, Xinying Song, Yunbo Cao
Issue Date:October 2010
pp. 39-48
In this paper, we are concerned with the problem of automatically extracting web data records that contain user-generated content (UGC). In previous work, web data records are usually assumed to be well-formed with a limited amount of UGC, and thus can be ...
     
Mobile media search: has media search finally found its perfect platform? part II
Found in: Proceedings of the seventeen ACM international conference on Multimedia (MM '09)
By Berna Erol, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Jiebo Luo, Minoru Etoh, Qian Lin, Shih-Fu Chang, Vidya Setlur
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 911-912
Recently, many exciting media search applications have been introduced to take advantage of smart phones' audiovisual capture capabilities and their being always on and connected. These applications address a real pain point for most mobile users and allow...
     
Recommending questions using the mdl-based tree cut model
Found in: Proceeding of the 17th international conference on World Wide Web (WWW '08)
By Chin-Yew Lin, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Huizhong Duan, Yong Yu, Yunbo Cao
Issue Date:April 2008
pp. 1-7
The paper is concerned with the problem of question recommendation. Specifically, given a question as query, we are to retrieve and rank other questions according to their likelihood of being good recommendations of the queried question. A good recommendat...
     
Webpage understanding: an integrated approach
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD '07)
By Bo Zhang, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Ji-Rong Wen, Jun Zhu, Zaiqing Nie
Issue Date:August 2007
pp. 903-912
Recent work has shown the effectiveness of leveraging layout and tag-tree structure for segmenting webpages and labeling HTML elements. However, how to effectively segment and label the text contents inside HTML elements is still an open problem. Since man...
     
Cross-lingual query suggestion using query logs of different languages
Found in: Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval (SIGIR '07)
By Cheng Niu, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Jian Hu, Jian-Yun Nie, Kam-Fai Wong, Ming Zhou, Wei Gao
Issue Date:July 2007
pp. 463-470
Query suggestion aims to suggest relevant queries for a given query, which help users better specify their information needs. Previously, the suggested terms are mostly in the same language of the input query. In this paper, we extend it to cross-lingual q...
     
Identifying ambiguous queries in web search
Found in: Proceedings of the 16th international conference on World Wide Web (WWW '07)
By Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Ji-Rong Wen, Ruihua Song, Yong Yu, Zhenxiao Luo
Issue Date:May 2007
pp. 1169-1170
It is widely believed that some queries submitted to search engines are by nature ambiguous (e.g., java, apple). However, few studies have investigated the questions of "how many queries are ambiguous?" and "how can we automatically identify an ambiguous q...
     
Adapting ranking SVM to document retrieval
Found in: Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval (SIGIR '06)
By Hang Li, Hsiao-Wuen Hon, Jun Xu, Tie-Yan Liu, Yalou Huang, Yunbo Cao
Issue Date:August 2006
pp. 186-193
The paper is concerned with applying learning to rank to document retrieval. Ranking SVM is a typical method of learning to rank. We point out that there are two factors one must consider when applying Ranking SVM, in general a "learning to rank" method, t...
