From Supervised Learning to Transfer Learning
by Assistant Professor, Nanyang Technological University
Recently, supervised-learning algorithms such as deep learning have made a great impact on our
society However, it has limitations like relying heavily on the size and quality of the annotated training data and being domain specific.
Jialin's long-term research goal is to develop transfer-learning techniques to build learning systems that can adapt to new and related domains with little or no human supervision.
