Special Issue Call for Papers

Modern machine learning is migrating to the era of complex models (e.g., deep neural networks), which emphasizes data representation highly. This learning paradigm is known as representation learning. Specifically, via deep neural networks, learned representations often result in much better performance than those can be obtained with hand-designed representations. It is noted that representation learning typically requires a plethora of well-annotated data. Giant companies can afford to collect well-annotated data, while for startups or non-profit organizations, such data is barely acquirable due to the cost of labeling data or the intrinsic scarcity in the given domain. These practical issues motivate researchers in machine learning and related fields to investigate and pay attention to weakly supervised representation learning (WSRL), since WSRL does not require such a huge amount of annotated data. We define WSRL as the collection of representation learning problem settings and algorithms that share the same goals as supervised representation learning but can only access to less supervised information than supervised representation learning. In this special issue, we discuss both theoretical and applied aspects of WSRL, which includes but not limited to the following topics:
