The Infinite Factorial Hidden Markov Model

The Infinite Factorial Hidden Markov Model

This video was recorded at 25th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), Helsinki 2008. The innite factorial hidden Markov model is a non-parametric extension of the factorial hidden Markov model. Our model denes a probability distribution over an innite num- ber of independent binary hidden Markov chains which together produce an observable sequence of random variables. Central to our model is a new type of non-parametric prior distribution inspired by the Indian Buf- fet Process which we call the Markov Indian Buet Process.
