Active Supervised Domain Adaptation

Active Supervised Domain Adaptation

This video was recorded at European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD), Athens 2011. In this paper, we harness the synergy between two important learning paradigms, namely, active learning and domain adaptation. We show how active learning in a target domain can leverage information from a different but related source domain. Our proposed framework, Active Learning Domain Adapted (Alda), uses source domain knowledge to transfer information that facilitates active learning in the target domain. We propose two variants of Alda: a batch B-Alda and an online O-Alda. Empirical comparisons with numerous baselines on real-world datasets establish the efficacy of the proposed methods.
