1 Introduction
Structured prediction (SP) problems are characterized by strong interdependence among the output
variables, usually with sequential, graphical, or combinatorial structure [17, 7]. Obtaining good
predictors often requires a large effort in feature/kernel design and tuning (usually done via cross-
validation). Because discriminative training of structured predictors can be quite slow, specially in
large scale settings, it is appealing to learn the kernel function simultaneously.
