How biased are maximum entropy models?

NeurIPS 2011 Jakob H. MackeIain MurrayPeter E. Latham

Maximum entropy models have become popular statistical models in neuroscience and other areas in biology, and can be useful tools for obtaining estimates of mu- tual information in biological systems. However, maximum entropy models fit to small data sets can be subject to sampling bias; i.e. the true entropy of the data can be severely underestimated... (read more)
