Beyond without Forgetting: Multi-Task Learning for Classification with Disjoint Datasets

15 Mar 2020  ·  Yan Hong, Li Niu, Jianfu Zhang, Liqing Zhang ·

Multi-task Learning (MTL) for classification with disjoint datasets aims to explore MTL when one task only has one labeled dataset. In existing methods, for each task, the unlabeled datasets are not fully exploited to facilitate this task... Inspired by semi-supervised learning, we use unlabeled datasets with pseudo labels to facilitate each task. However, there are two major issues: 1) the pseudo labels are very noisy; 2) the unlabeled datasets and the labeled dataset for each task has considerable data distribution mismatch. To address these issues, we propose our MTL with Selective Augmentation (MTL-SA) method to select the training samples in unlabeled datasets with confident pseudo labels and close data distribution to the labeled dataset. Then, we use the selected training samples to add information and use the remaining training samples to preserve information. Extensive experiments on face-centric and human-centric applications demonstrate the effectiveness of our MTL-SA method. read more
