Use this page to record your results from experiments in the Feature Queue.


  • run regression test and verify no regressions
  • commit to SVN before posting experiments
  • use that revision number in the template below
  • send a commit message to the Lang ID folks
    • look into automating this (svn commit should trigger email)

Template Fields

A feature log template has been made that will automatically format your results. Here are its parameters:

  • name: Name of the experiment/definition file (base filename, no extensions)
  • date: Date experiment was performed
  • experimenter: Name of experimenter
  • purpose: Brief statement of Purpose of experiment, including rationale for new features
  • path: Path to archived config file and results on Entropy (/home/data/experiments/langid)
  • Metrics (all files referenced are in results/plot-nist_norm1/global):
    • Hard Decision (values at the chosen operating point):
      • cost: actual cost (nist.hd.points: “DCF”)
      • missrate: Miss rate (nist.hd.points: “missprob”)
      • farate: False alarm rate (nist.hd.points: “faprob”)
    • Minimum Possible Cost
      • mincost: (DET_nist.points: row 1, col 1 [first value of file])
      • minmissrate: (DET_nist.points: row 1, col 6)
      • minfarate: (DET_nist.points: row 1, col 7)
    • eer: EER (eer.txt)
  • rev: Subversion revision number
  • summary: English summary of notable outcome

(N-gram) 3-gram

  • Placeholder for 3-gram (you shouldn't use == to manually add a header, the template will take care of that)
