Deep Adversarial Domain Adaptation Based on Multi-layer Joint Kernelized Distance

10/09/2020 ∙ by Sitong Mao, et al. ∙ 0

Domain adaptation refers to the learning scenario that a model learned from the source data is applied on the target data which have the same categories but different distribution. While it has been widely applied, the distribution discrepancy between source data and target data can substantially affect the adaptation performance. The problem has been recently addressed by employing adversarial learning and distinctive adaptation performance has been reported. In this paper, a deep adversarial domain adaptation model based on a multi-layer joint kernelized distance metric is proposed. By utilizing the abstract features extracted from deep networks, the multi-layer joint kernelized distance (MJKD) between the jth target data predicted as the mth category and all the source data of the m'th category is computed. Base on MJKD, a class-balanced selection strategy is utilized in each category to select target data that are most likely to be classified correctly and treat them as labeled data using their pseudo labels. Then an adversarial architecture is used to draw the newly generated labeled training data and the remaining target data close to each other. In this way, the target data itself provide valuable information to enhance the domain adaptation. An analysis of the proposed method is also given and the experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can achieve a better performance than a number of state-of-the-art methods.
