CBC: Clustering Based Text Classification Requiring Minimal Labeled Data
Semi-supervised learning methods construct classifiers using both labeled and unlabeled training data samples. While unlabeled data samples can help to improve the accuracy of trained models to certain extent, existing methods still face difficulties when labeled data is not sufficient and biased against the underlying data distribution. In this paper, we present a clustering based classification (CBC) approach. Using this approach, training data, including both the labeled and unlabeled data, is first clustered with the guidance of the labeled data. Some of unlabeled data samples are then labeled based on the clusters obtained. Discriminative classifiers can subsequently be trained with the expanded labeled dataset. The effectiveness of the proposed method is justified analytically. Related issues such as expanding labeled dataset and interacting clustering with classification are discussed. Our experimental results demonstrated that CBC outperforms existing algorithms when the size o...
