Title:
Machine learning from weak supervision --- Towards accu
rate
classification with low labeling costs.

Abstract:
Recent advan
ces in machine learning with big labeled data allow us to
achieve human-l
evel performance in various tasks such as speech
recognition, image unde
rstanding, and natural language translation. On
the other hand, there a
re still many application domains where human
labor is involved in the da
ta acquisition process and thus the use of
massive labeled data is prohib
ited.
