Statistical Relational Learning - Canonical Tasks

Canonical Tasks

A number of canonical tasks are associated with statistical relational learning, the most common ones being

  • collective classification, i.e. the (simultaneous) prediction of the class of several objects given objects' attributes and their relations
  • link prediction, i.e. predicting whether or not two or more objects are related
  • link-based clustering, i.e. the grouping of similar objects, where similarity is determined according to the links of an object, and the related task of collaborative filtering, i.e. the filtering for information that is relevant to an entity (where a piece of information is considered relevant to an entity if it is known to be relevant to a similar entity).
  • social network modelling
  • object identification/entity resolution/record linkage, i.e. the identification of equivalent entries in two or more separate databases/datasets

Famous quotes containing the words tasks and/or canonical:

    Everything I do is done within sight of the Führer, so that my faults or mistakes are never hidden from him. I do my very utmost to live and act in such a manner that the Führer should remain satisfied with me; I am hard-working; but whether I shall always be able to cope with the tasks entrusted to me in the future as well, is an open question.
    Martin Bormann (1900–1945)

    If God bestowed immortality on every man then when he made him, and he made many to whom he never purposed to give his saving grace, what did his Lordship think that God gave any man immortality with purpose only to make him capable of immortal torments? It is a hard saying, and I think cannot piously be believed. I am sure it can never be proved by the canonical Scripture.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)
