AIP challenge program aims to support individual research for young researchers who belong to CREST team. In 2017, 40 researchers were selected, and Han Bao got the 1st prize in the final presentation by mutual election.
Title: Classification from Pairwise Similarity and Unlabeled Data
Abstract: In this research, our goal is to make classifiers from information which is easier to obtain than class labels, in order to reduce labeling cost in the traditional supervised learning. It is shown that classifiers can be learned from pairwise similar data, i.e., two data belong to the same class. This method gives good performances for many datasets.
