Abstract: Conditional Exponential Models (CEM) are effectively used in several machine learning approaches, e.g., in Conditional Random Fields. Their feature functions are typically either satisfied or not. This paper presents a way to use partially matching feature functions which are satisfied to some degree and corresponding issues while training. Using partially matching feature functions improves the inference accuracy in domains with sparse reference data and avoids overfitting. Unfortunately, the typically used Maximum Likelihood training includes some issues for using partially matching feature functions. In this context three problems (inequality of influence, unlimited weight boundaries and local optima in parameter space) with Improved Iterative Scaling (a popular training algorithm for Conditional Exponential Models) using such feature functions are stated and solved.
