Stochastic scheduling of active support vector learning algorithms
Active learning is a generic approach to accelerate training of classifiers in order to achieve a higher accuracy with a small number of training examples. In the past, simple active learning algorithms like random learning and query learning have been proposed for the design of support vector machine (SVM) classifiers. In random learning, examples are chosen randomly, while in query learning examples closer to the current separating hyperplane are chosen at each learning step. However, it is observed that a better scheme would be to use random learning in the initial stages (more exploration) and query learning in the final stages (more exploitation) of learning. Here we present two novel active SV learning algorithms which use adaptive mixtures of random and query learning. One of the proposed algorithms is inspired by online decision problems, and involves a hard choice among the pure strategies at each step. The other extends this to soft choices using a mixture of instances re...
