1. Method for improving results in an HMM-based segmentation system by incorporating external knowledge

    A Hidden Markov model is used to segment a data sequence. To reduce the potential for error that may result from the Markov assumption, the Viterbi dynamic programming algorithm is modified to apply a multiplicative factor if a particular set of states is re-entered. As a result, structural domain knowledge is incorporated into the algorithm by expanding the state space in the dynamic programming recurrence. In a specific example of segmenting resumes, the factor is used to reward or penalize (even require or prohibit) a segmentation of the resume that results in the re-entry into a section such as Experience ...
