Conformal decision-tree approach to instance transfer

Conformal decision-tree approach to instance transfer Instance transfer for classification aims at boosting generalization performance of classification models for a target domain by exploiting data from a relevant source domain. Most of the instance-transfer approaches assume that the source data is relevant to the target data for the complete set of features used to represent the data. This assumption fails if the target data and source data are relevant only for strict subsets of the input features which we call “partially input-feature relevant”. In this case these approaches may result in sub-optimal classification models or even in a negative transfer. This paper proposes a new decision-tree approach to instance transfer when the source data are partially input-feature relevant to the target data. The approach selects input features for tree nodes using univariate transfer of source instances. The instance transfer is guided by a conformal test for source relevance estimation. Experimental results on real-world data sets demonstrate that the new decision-tree approach is capable of outperforming existing instance-transfer approaches, especially, when the source data are partially input-feature relevant to the target data. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence Springer Journals
