Predicting structured objects such as parse trees or protein folds is often formulated as combinatorial optimization, where the goal is to find the most likely structure given the available evidence. Linear programming relaxations are a powerful tool for solving these optimization problems. Learning for structured prediction corresponds to inverse combinatorial optimization, finding parameters for the model such that for each of the data points, the optimal solution is the desired structure. This talk will survey algorithms and theory relating to learning for structured prediction using linear programming relaxations, as applied to dependency parsing in natural language processing, multi-label prediction, and protein side-chain placement.

Based on joint work with Michael Collins, Amir Globerson, Tommi Jaakkola, Terry Koo, Ofer Meshi, and Sasha Rush.
