Active learning is a machine-learning paradigm for optimally choosing unlabeled observations in a training data set to query for their true labels. The framework is particularly useful when there are very few labeled observations relative to a large number of unlabeled observations, and the user seeks to determine as few true labels as possible to achieve highly accurate classifiers.
activelearning R package is a collection of various active-learning
methods from the literature to optimally query observations with respect to a
variety of objective functions. Some active learning methods require posterior
probability estimates of the unlabeled observations from a single classifier or
a committee of classifiers; this package allows the user to specify custom
classifiers or specify a variety of classifiers by interfacing with the
caret R package.
activelearning package implements the active learning methods as defined
by the excellent
from Dr. Burr Settles. This literature
survey is also available in
which is highly recommended.
