README.md

This is a simple (and parallelizable) tuning method for cdec which is able to train the weights of very many (sparse) features on the training set.

It was used in these papers:

"Joint Feature Selection in Distributed Stochastic Learning for Large-Scale Discriminative Training in SMT" (Simianer, Riezler, Dyer; ACL 2012)

"Multi-Task Learning for Improved Discriminative Training in SMT" (Simianer, Riezler; WMT 2013)

Building

Builds when building cdec, see ../BUILDING . To build only parts needed for dtrain do

  autoreconf -ifv
  ./configure
  cd training/dtrain/; make

Running

See directories under examples/ .
