Positive unlabeled learning with tensor networks

by   Bojan Žunkovič, et al.

Positive unlabeled learning is a binary classification problem with positive and unlabeled data. It is common in domains where negative labels are costly or impossible to obtain, e.g., medicine and personalized advertising. We apply the locally purified state tensor network to the positive unlabeled learning problem and test our model on the MNIST image and 15 categorical/mixed datasets. On the MNIST dataset, we achieve state-of-the-art results even with very few labeled positive samples. Similarly, we significantly improve the state-of-the-art on categorical datasets. Further, we show that the agreement fraction between outputs of different models on unlabeled samples is a good indicator of the model's performance. Finally, our method can generate new positive and negative instances, which we demonstrate on simple synthetic datasets.
