TL;DR: In this paper, the authors introduce a notion of teachability with which they establish a relationship between the learnability and teachability, and discuss the complexity issues of a teacher in relation to learning.

Abstract: This paper considers computational learning from the view-point of teaching. We introduce a notion of teachability with which we establish a relationship between the learnability and teachability. We also discuss the complexity issues of a teacher in relation to learning.

TL;DR: In this article, the Shift-And algorithm was used to solve the problem of pattern matching in LZW compressed text, where a pattern length is at most 32 or the word length.

Abstract: This paper considers the Shift-And approach to the problem of pattern matching in LZW compressed text, and gives a new algorithm that solves it. The algorithm is indeed fast when a pattern length is at most 32, or the word length. After an O(m + |Σ|) time and O(|Σ|) space preprocessing of a pattern, it scans an LZW compressed text in O(n + r) time and reports all occurrences of the pattern, where n is the compressed text length, m is the pattern length, and r is the number of the pattern occurrences. Experimental results show that it runs approximately 1.5 times faster than a decompression followed by a simple search using the Shift-And algorithm. Moreover, the algorithm can be extended to the generalized pattern matching, to the pattern matching with k mismatches, and to the multiple pattern matching, like the Shift-And algorithm.

TL;DR: This paper surveys existing work on decision tree construction, attempting to identify the important issues involved, directions the work has taken and the current state of the art.

Abstract: Decision trees have proved to be valuable tools for the description, classification and generalization of data. Work on constructing decision trees from data exists in multiple disciplines such as statistics, pattern recognition, decision theory, signal processing, machine learning and artificial neural networks. Researchers in these disciplines, sometimes working on quite different problems, identified similar issues and heuristics for decision tree construction. This paper surveys existing work on decision tree construction, attempting to identify the important issues involved, directions the work has taken and the current state of the art.

TL;DR: This work has succeeded in finding rules whose prediction accuracies come close to that of TargetP, while still retaining a very simple and interpretable form.

Abstract: Motivation: The prediction of localization sites of various proteins is an important and challenging problem in the field of molecular biology. TargetP, by Emanuelsson et al. (J. Mol. Biol., 300, 1005‐1016, 2000) is a neural network based system which is currently the best predictor in the literature for N-terminal sorting signals. One drawback of neural networks, however, is that it is generally difficult to understand and interpret how and why they make such predictions. In this paper, we aim to generate simple and interpretable rules as predictors, and still achieve a practical prediction accuracy. We adopt an approach which consists of an extensive search for simple rules and various attributes which is partially guided by human intuition. Results: We have succeeded in finding rules whose prediction accuracies come close to that of TargetP, while still retaining a very simple and interpretable form. We also discuss and interpret the discovered rules. Availability: An (experimental) web service using rules obtained by our method is provided at http:

TL;DR: A fast compression technique for natural language texts that allows a large number of variations over the basic word and phrase search capability, such as sets of characters, arbitrary regular expressions, and approximate matching.

Abstract: We present a fast compression technique for natural language texts. The novelties are that (1) decompression of arbitrary portions of the text can be done very efficiently, (2) exact search for words and phrases can be done on the compressed text directly, using any known sequential pattern-matching algorithm, and (3) word-based approximate and extended search can also be done efficiently without any decoding. The compression scheme uses a semistatic word-based model and a Huffman code where the coding alphabet is byte-oriented rather than bit-oriented. We compress typical English texts to about 30% of their original size, against 40% and 35% for Compress and Gzip, respectively. Compression time is close to that of Compress and approximately half of the time of Gzip, and decompression time is lower than that of Gzip and one third of that of Compress. We present three algorithms to search the compressed text. They allow a large number of variations over the basic word and phrase search capability, such as sets of characters, arbitrary regular expressions, and approximate matching. Separators and stopwords can be discarded at search time without significantly increasing the cost. When searching for simple words, the experiments show that running our algorithms on a compressed text is twice as fast as running the best existing software on the uncompressed version of the same text. When searching complex or approximate patterns, our algorithms are up to 8 times faster than the search on uncompressed text. We also discuss the impact of our technique in inverted files pointing to logical blocks and argue for the possibility of keeping the text compressed all the time, decompressing only for displaying purposes.

TL;DR: The reader's attention is drawn to machine teaching, the problem of finding an optimal training set given a machine learning algorithm and a target model, and the Socratic dialogue style aims to stimulate critical thinking.

Abstract: I draw the reader's attention to machine teaching, the problem of finding an optimal training set given a machine learning algorithm and a target model. In addition to generating fascinating mathematical questions for computer scientists to ponder, machine teaching holds the promise of enhancing education and personnel training. The Socratic dialogue style aims to stimulate critical thinking.
