Multiple-Source Adaptation with Domain Classifiers

08/25/2020 ∙ by Corinna Cortes, et al. ∙ 12

We consider the multiple-source adaptation (MSA) problem and improve a previously proposed MSA solution, where accurate density estimation per domain is required to obtain favorable learning guarantees. In this work, we replace the difficult task of density estimation per domain with a much easier task of domain classification, and show that the two solutions are equivalent given the true densities and domain classifier, yet the newer approach benefits from more favorable guarantees when densities and domain classifier are estimated from finite samples. Our experiments with real-world applications demonstrate that the new discriminative MSA solution outperforms the previous solution with density estimation, as well as other domain adaptation baselines.
