Jerome R Bellegarda, Yen Lu Chow: Method and system for deriving a large-span semantic language model for large-vocabulary recognition systems. Apple Computer, Sawyer & Associates, October 27, 1998: US05828999 (174 worldwide citation)

A system and method for deriving a large-span semantic language model for a large vocabulary recognition system is disclosed. The method and system maps words from a vocabulary into a vector space, where each word is represented by a vector. After the vectors are mapped to the space, the vectors are ...

Jerome R Bellegarda, Dimitri Kanevsky: Automatic recognition of a consistent message using multiple complimentary sources of information. International Business Machines Corporation, Sterne Kessler Goldstein & Fox, March 26, 1996: US05502774 (174 worldwide citation)

A general approach is provided for the combined use of several sources of information in the automatic recognition of a consistent message. For each message unit (e.g., word) the total likelihood score is assumed to be the weighted sum of the likelihood scores resulting from the separate evaluation ...

Jerome R Bellegarda, Kim E A Silverman: Method and apparatus for command recognition using data-driven semantic inference. Apple Computer, Blakely Sokoloff Taylor & Zafman, March 27, 2001: US06208971 (145 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for command recognition using data-driven semantic inference includes recognizing a sequence of words received as the voice command. Data-driven semantic inference is then used with the recognized sequence of words to recognize the voice command. Thus, the command is identifie ...

Jerome R Bellegarda: Method for dynamic context scope selection in hybrid n-gram+LSA language modeling. Apple Computer, Blakely Sokoloff Taylor & Zafman, November 5, 2002: US06477488 (121 worldwide citation)

A method and system for dynamic language modeling of a document are described. In one embodiment, a number of local probabilities of a current document are computed and a vector representation of the current document in a latent semantic analysis (LSA) space is determined. In addition, a number of g ...
