A-Optimal Active Learning

18 Oct 2021  ·  Tue Boesen, Eldad Haber ·

In this work we discuss the problem of active learning. We present an approach that is based on A-optimal experimental design of ill-posed problems and show how one can optimally label a data set by partially probing it, and use it to train a deep network. We present two approaches that make different assumptions on the data set. The first is based on a Bayesian interpretation of the semi-supervised learning problem with the graph Laplacian that is used for the prior distribution and the second is based on a frequentist approach, that updates the estimation of the bias term based on the recovery of the labels. We demonstrate that this approach can be highly efficient for estimating labels and training a deep network.
