ML training

If we use the gradient techniques with ML, then the procedure would be as follows.

Initialize the each HMM tex2html_wrap_inline3186 with values generated randomly or using an initialization algorithm like segmental K means .
Take an observation sequence of a sentence and,
Go to step (2), unless all the observation sequences are considered.
Repeat step(2) to (3) until a convergence criterion is satisfied.
