Hi all,

I believe there is a mistake in the formula for Populating the Emission Matrix

In the denominator it should be C(t_i) + V *\epsilon as we are summing over all the words w_i given t_i.

Or am I misunderstanding something?

Best,

Thomas

For consistency of notation, yes, here instead of N it should be V. The same goes for code hints in the assignment (see this post)

Usually N is associated with counts (natural numbers) regardless of the things that are being counted so I guess we could not call it a mistake, but for clarity it could have been V.
