Hi,

I am trying to use a Poisson distribution with the Baum Welch algorithm. However the constructor of BaumWelchAlgorithm requires a BatchLearner over Weighted values; and the Poisson only has a MaximumLikelihoodEstimator (not a WeightedMaximumLikelihoodEstimator like MultivariateGaussian.WeightedMaximumLikelihoodEstimator).

Here is the code I am trying to use:

HiddenMarkovModel hmm = new HiddenMarkovModel( DEFAULT_NUM_STATES );

BaumWelchAlgorithm bwa = new BaumWelchAlgorithm(

hmm,

new PoissonDistribution.MaximumLikelihoodEstimator(),

true );

Any suggestions on getting BaumWelchAlgorithm to work with PoissonDistribution?

Thanks
