Open Source Text Processing Project: Maximum Entropy Modeling Toolkit

Maximum Entropy Modeling Toolkit for Python and C++

Project Website:

Github Link:


The Maximum Entropy Toolkit provides a set of tools and library for constructing maximum entropy (maxent) model in either Python or C++.

Maxent Entropy Model is a general purpose machine learning framework that has proved to be highly expressive and powerful in statistical natural language processing, statistical physics, computer vision and many other fields. Please see my maxent page for more information on maxent. right place.
If you do not like this Toolkit, you can still try several other ME implementations.


Current version has the following highlights:

Conditional Maximum Entropy Model
L-BFGS Parameter Estimation
GIS Parameter Estimation
Gaussian Prior Smoothing
Python Extension module written in C++
Command line utility: maxent
Documentation and Tutorial 😉
