"""
Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) largely used to assign the correct label sequence
to sequential data or assess the probability of a given label and data
sequence. These models are finite state machines characterised by a number of
states, transitions between these states, and output symbols emitted while in
each state. The HMM is an extension to the Markov chain, where each state
corresponds deterministically to a given event. In the HMM the observation is
a probabilistic function of the state. HMMs share the Markov chain's
assumption, being that the probability of transition from one state to another
only depends on the current state - i.e. the series of states that led to the
current state are not used. They are also time invariant.
The HMM is a directed graph, with probability weighted edges (representing the
probability of a transition between the source and sink states) where each
vertex emits an output symbol when entered. The symbol (or observation) is
non-deterministically generated. For this reason, knowing that a sequence of
output observations was generated by a given HMM does not mean that the
corresponding sequence of states (and what the current state is) is known.
This is the 'hidden' in the hidden markov model.
Formally, a HMM can be characterised by:
- the output observation alphabet. This is the set of symbols which may be
observed as output of the system.
- the set of states.
- the transition probabilities *a_{ij} = P(s_t = j | s_{t-1} = i)*. These
represent the probability of transition to each state from a given state.
- the output probability matrix *b_i(k) = P(X_t = o_k | s_t = i)*. These
represent the probability of observing each symbol in a given state.
- the initial state distribution. This gives the probability of starting
in each state.
To ground this discussion, take a common NLP application, part-of-speech (POS)
tagging. An HMM is desirable for this task as the highest probability tag
sequence can be calculated for a given sequence of word forms. This differs
from other tagging techniques which often tag each word individually, seeking
to optimise each individual tagging greedily without regard to the optimal
combination of tags for a larger unit, such as a sentence. The HMM does this
with the Viterbi algorithm, which efficiently computes the optimal path
through the graph given the sequence of words forms.
In POS tagging the states usually have a 1:1 correspondence with the tag
alphabet - i.e. each state represents a single tag. The output observation
alphabet is the set of word forms (the lexicon), and the remaining three
parameters are derived by a training regime. With this information the
probability of a given sentence can be easily derived, by simply summing the
probability of each distinct path through the model. Similarly, the highest
probability tagging sequence can be derived with the Viterbi algorithm,
yielding a state sequence which can be mapped into a tag sequence.
This discussion assumes that the HMM has been trained. This is probably the
most difficult task with the model, and requires either MLE estimates of the
parameters or unsupervised learning using the Baum-Welch algorithm, a variant
of EM.
For more information, please consult the source code for this module,
which includes extensive demonstration code.

Hidden Markov model class, a generative model for labelling sequence data.
These models define the joint probability of a sequence of symbols and
their labels (state transitions) as the product of the starting state
probability, the probability of each state transition, and the probability
of each observation being generated from each state. This is described in
more detail in the module documentation.
This implementation is based on the HMM description in Chapter 8, Huang,
Acero and Hon, Spoken Language Processing and includes an extension for
training shallow HMM parsers or specialized HMMs as in Molina et.
al, 2002. A specialized HMM modifies training data by applying a
specialization function to create a new training set that is more
appropriate for sequential tagging with an HMM. A typical use case is
chunking.

Returns the entropy over labellings of the given sequence. This is

*Z = Pr(O) = sum_S Pr(S, O)}* where the summation ranges over all state
sequences and O is the observation sequence. As such the entropy can
be re-expressed as::
H = - sum_S Pr(S | O) log [ Pr(S, O) / Z ]
