TL;DR: In this paper, the problem of selecting one of a number of models of different dimensions is treated by finding its Bayes solution, and evaluating the leading terms of its asymptotic expansion.

Abstract: The problem of selecting one of a number of models of different dimensions is treated by finding its Bayes solution, and evaluating the leading terms of its asymptotic expansion. These terms are a valid large-sample criterion beyond the Bayesian context, since they do not depend on the a priori distribution.

01 Oct 2014TL;DR: A new global logbilinear regression model that combines the advantages of the two major model families in the literature: global matrix factorization and local context window methods and produces a vector space with meaningful substructure.

Abstract: Recent methods for learning vector space representations of words have succeeded in capturing fine-grained semantic and syntactic regularities using vector arithmetic, but the origin of these regularities has remained opaque. We analyze and make explicit the model properties needed for such regularities to emerge in word vectors. The result is a new global logbilinear regression model that combines the advantages of the two major model families in the literature: global matrix factorization and local context window methods. Our model efficiently leverages statistical information by training only on the nonzero elements in a word-word cooccurrence matrix, rather than on the entire sparse matrix or on individual context windows in a large corpus. The model produces a vector space with meaningful substructure, as evidenced by its performance of 75% on a recent word analogy task. It also outperforms related models on similarity tasks and named entity recognition.

TL;DR: This chapter describes the System Usability Scale (SUS) a reliable, low-cost usability scale that can be used for global assessments of systems usability.

Abstract: Usability is not a quality that exists in any real or absolute sense. Perhaps it can be
best summed up as being a general quality of the appropriateness to a purpose of
any particular artefact. This notion is neatly summed up by Terry Pratchett in his
novel Moving Pictures:In just the same way, the usability of any tool or system has to be viewed in terms
of the context in which it is used, and its appropriateness to that context. With
particular reference to information systems, this view of usability is reflected in the
current draft international standard ISO 9241-11 and in the European Community
ESPRIT project MUSiC (Measuring Usability of Systems in Context) (e.g. Bevan
et al., 1991). In general, it is impossible to specify the usability of a system (i.e. its
fitness for purpose) without first defining who are the intended users of the system,
the tasks those users will perform with it, and the characteristics of the physical,
organizational and social environment in which it will be used.
