What are the differences between CRF and HMM?

What I know about CRF is that they are discriminative models, while HMM are generative models, but, in the inference method, both use the same algorithm, that is, the Viterbi algorithm, and forward ...

Backpropagation: how to take into account different samples quality

I have a NN I'd like to train using supervised learning. Some samples of the training set, however, have better "quality" than others, so I'd like the algorithm to pay "special attention" to them. As ...
