We propose a novel approach to learning parameters of canonical models from small data sets using a concept employed in regression analysis: weighted least squares method. We assess the performance of our method experimentally and show that it typically outperforms simple methods used in the literature in terms of accuracy of the learned conditional probability distributions.
