Semisupervised learning from different information sources. Knowledge and Information Systems 7(3):289–309

By Tao Li and Mitsunori Ogihara


Abstract. This paper studies the use of a semisupervised learning algorithm from different information sources. We first offer a theoretical explanation as to why minimising the disagreement between individual models could lead to the performance improvement. Based on the observation, this paper proposes a semisupervised learning approach that attempts to minimise this disagreement by employing a co-updating method and making use of both labeled and unlabeled data. Three experiments to test the effectiveness of the approach are presented in this paper: (i) webpage classification from both content and hyperlinks; (ii) functional classification of gene using gene expression data and phylogenetic data and (iii) machine self-maintaining from both sensory and image data. The results show the effectiveness and efficiency of our approach and suggest its application potentials
