A Stochastic Variance-Reduced Approach to Empirical Risk Minimization – We show that the use of probabilistic inference in natural language can improve the state of the art on the standard UCB dataset. We also provide a more generalized view of probabilistic inference as a Bayesian search, that allows to build probabilistic models from a wide variety of sources such as the language, the literature, and scientific papers, but does not require a large amount of extra knowledge about the sources. Based on these two views, we derive a general probabilistic inference scheme that makes use of the probabilistic constraints to infer uncertainty (as a measure of plausibility) within the probabilistic inference framework. We also illustrate our analysis on a real-world dataset, and demonstrate the efficacy of Bayesian inference on both our dataset and a large set of related datasets.

We propose a new approach for solving a simple machine learning problem: answering queries about a program. We first present a formal semantics of a query, and a set of questions describing a program, called a query question. The question asks which of the $n$ items is true next to ${k}$, and the answer depends on the number of items ($k$). We propose a new definition of the query question and a new semantics for queries, named queries. Our approach is able to efficiently address the problems with both an answer and an answer-to-question structure. Our results show that our approach is generalizable to new problems, which are nonconvex, nonconvex, and a large number of them.
