We study a recent inferential framework, named posterior regularisation, on the Bayesian hierarchical mixture clustering (BHMC) model. This framework facilitates a simple way to impose extra constraints on a Bayesian model to overcome some weakness of the original model. It narrows the search space of the parameters of the Bayesian model through a formalism that imposes certain constraints on the features of the found solutions. In this paper, in order to enhance the separation of clusters, we apply posterior regularisation to impose max-margin constraints on the nodes at every level of the hierarchy. This paper shows how the framework integrates with BHMC and achieves the expected improvements over the original Bayesian model.
