Context Modelling with Dirichlet Processes - Chances and Risks

[go to overview]

We look at a very popular construct in probabilistic modelling: the Dirichlet process (DP).

Starting with the Chinese restaurant metaphor, we see how context can be modelled using DPs and understand some of the underlying assumptions.

Finally, we look at a practical application where the integration of context has undesired effects.
