Session #9: Just do it

Active Learning


In our pervious session we touched the interesting selective learning model, wherein the classifier gained a power to  abstain (classifications). The selective learning model connects nicely with the active learning model in which the learner  may influence on the choice of its learning-examples. (Here is a theoretical result which connects the two models: pdf-link.)

Let's pick introductory level topic from the survey below. It would also be interesting to compare active learning in humans to AL in machines (the second link below).

We need session lead volunteers. Please contact me if you wanna help.

• A nice survey on active learning -- http://bit.ly/1nvbxT1

    We had a real nice session. Thanks to Eyal G. and Eyal K. from RSA for generously hosting us. Omer gave a very interesting explanation of the magic behind word2vec method. You can read the full details here (http://bit.ly/1ogkhNa). Send Omer a message if you wanna get the presentation slides. Yoav pointed that they also published a tech-report explaining the derivation of the word2vec model in quite detail: http://arxiv.org/abs/1402.3722

    Michael lead an interesting tutorial session on the active learning model (for supervised learning). We covered a few theoretical aspects (e.g., version space, and disagreement region) and a couple of algorithmic approaches (e.g., max uncertainty sampling). Thanks!

    Hi all, I've edited the session's description.

      Hi Ron, I'd be happy to summarize and lead a discussion of the Castro paper. Hershel
