Active Learning by Labeling Features(2009)
AbstractMethods that learn from prior information about input features such as generalized expectation (GE) have been used to train accurate models with very little effort. In this paper, we propose an active learning approach in which the machine solicits "labels" on features rather than instances. In both simulated and real user experiments on two sequence labeling tasks we show that our active learning method outperforms passive learning with features as well as traditional active learning with instances. Preliminary experiments suggest that novel interfaces which intelligently solicit labels on multiple features facilitate more efficient annotation.
