A Novel Discriminative Probabilistic Model for Automatic Word Spacing on Mobile Devices
In this paper, the authors present a new method for automatic word spacing in Korean. Their major challenge is to reduce the memory usage and processing time to be suitable for mobile devices while ensuring a high performance. Since mobile devices are more difficult to type letters into than general PCs with current technology, spacing errors such as writing with no spaces can occur relatively frequently in mobile devices. As text typing to connect to Social Network Service via mobile devices continues to increase, more and more people can be confused in communication due to spacing errors. In this paper, they propose a novel "Discriminative probabilistic model" in which syllables are classified into eight classes of "Syllable-based space patterns".
