Statistics for Linguistics

I recently wrote an article on how machine learning algorithms can be considered extensions of linguistic rules.

The article I am currently sharing with you is also related to linguistics.

It is in the form of a set of slides and describes statistical concepts and tools that might come in handy for linguists.

Here are the slides:  http://aiaioo.com/whitepapers/statistics_for_linguistics.pdf

The goal of these slides was to teach a team of linguists about statistics and machine learning.

The main sections are:

  1. Motivation for learning new tools using examples from algorithms and their application to education and poverty elimination.
  2. What to annotate
  3. How to develop insights
  4. How to annotate
  5. How much data to annotate
  6. How to avoid mistakes in using the corpus
