DAVIDSON Ian (University of California - Davis)
Adding Humans to Machine Learning

Summary:

Existing machine learning typically learns from just data and does not readily accept human input. However, in many domains considerable domain expertise already exists and encoding this human expertise has significant benefits. We describe several ways of encoding domain expertise via guided, transfer and active learning for formulations of clustering, learning to rank and classification. We describe work with collaborators to demonstrate uses of our work in neuroscience, education and DoD applications.
