Probability Estimation over Large Alphabets
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractMany applications require estimating distributions over large alphabets based on a small data sample. We outline the problem's history, theory, and applications, and describe recent constructions of asymptotically optimal estimators. The talk is self contained and based on work with P. Santhanam, K. Viswanathan, J. Zhang, and others.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
