Meta-Learning with Latent Embedding Optimization

07/16/2018 ∙ by Andrei A. Rusu, et al. ∙ 0

Gradient-based meta-learning techniques are both widely applicable and proficient at solving challenging few-shot learning and fast adaptation problems. However, they have the practical difficulties of operating in high-dimensional parameter spaces in extreme low-data regimes. We show that it is possible to bypass these limitations by learning a low-dimensional latent generative representation of model parameters and performing gradient-based meta-learning in this space with latent embedding optimization (LEO), effectively decoupling the gradient-based adaptation procedure from the underlying high-dimensional space of model parameters. Our evaluation shows that LEO can achieve state-of-the-art performance on the competitive 5-way 1-shot miniImageNet classification task.
