Issue No. 10 - October (2007 vol. 29)
We present a discriminative latent variable model for classification problems in structured domains where inputs can be represented by a graph of local observations. A hidden-state Conditional Random Field framework learns a set of latent variables conditioned on local features. Observations need not be independent and may overlap in space and time.
