### Viterbi Algorithm [closed]

Can someone explain why Is it because for the left argument, we would find the most likely sequence of states given observations and for the right argument, we would eventually find the most likely ...

### What is HMM and Viterbi algorithm?

I have to learn what is HMM and Viterbi alogrithm, I search all pages on Google, but I can't understand what is HMM is and what is Viterbi is, if there is very basic and very simple examples/...

### Viterbi algorithm for finding most probable path with varying transition probabilities

I'm struggling to apply the Viterbi algorithm to a simple case of inferring hidden states where the transmission probabilities change. I've draw a picture below of the trellis with transition ...

### Viterbi and forward-backward algorithm in HMM

I am learning HMM recently and got confused with the training problem (training model parameters and hidden state given outcome sequence). As far as I know, both Viterbi learning and Baum-Welch (...

### Can all or most combinatoric optimization problems in Machine Learning be solved using Viterbi algorithm? [closed]

I am just scratching the surface of the topic but are there practical limitations even for Viterbi Algorithm? Also, are Viterbi Algorithm and dynamic programming equivalent?

### What if transitions and emissions in a hidden Markov model are not independent?

A Hidden Markov Model is given by transition and emission matrices. The transition matrix determine probability of "next states" as a function of the current state. The emission matrix determine the ...

### Produce Multiple Sequence Alignments using Profile HMMs

I have a few multiple sequence alignments and a few groups (let's say N) of unaligned sequences. I would like to learn the emission and transition probabilities from the multiple sequence alignments, ...

### Matlab hmm viterbi algorithm calculated state sequence Probability

I have used matlab hmmviterbi function in my code for calculating the most probable state sequence from observation sequence. Is there any way to derive the probability (score) of this calculated ...

### Other method to find the most likely hidden state in HMM?

If I use Baum-Welch algorithm to best estimate the parameters for hidden Markov model, then I was thinking, instead of using Viterbi algorithm, why can't I just find the most likely hidden state for ...

### HMM for sequence classification in R

I have a dataset which includes sequence of DNA nucleotides (A,C,G,T) and each sequence has a gene index that is binary. i.e I'm trying to classify unknown sequence by using a hidden markov model in ...

### Calculating Emission Probability values for Hidden Markov Model (HMM)

I'm new to HMM and still learning. I'm currently using HMM to tag part-of-speech. To implement the viterbi algorithm I need transition probabilities ($a_{i,j} \newcommand{\Count}{\text{Count}}$) and ...

### How large a training set do I need for an English POS tagger?

I'm trying to implement a POS tagger for English using the Viterbi algorithm on an HMM model. Right now, my results are poor and I'm not sure whether it's due to a bug or due to lack of training data. ...
