In the field of machine learning, semi-supervised learning (SSL) occupies the middleground, between supervised learning (in which all training examples are labeled) and unsupervisedlearning (in which no label data are given). Interest in SSL has increased in recent years,particularly because of application domains in which unlabeled data are plentiful, such as images,text, and bioinformatics. This first comprehensive overview of SSL presents state-of-the-artalgorithms, a taxonomy of the field, selected applications, benchmark experiments, and perspectiveson ongoing and future research.Semi-Supervised Learning first presents the key assumptions and ideasunderlying the field: smoothness, cluster or low-density separation, manifold structure, andtransduction. The core of the book is the presentation of SSL methods, organized according toalgorithmic strategies. After an examination of generative models, the book describes algorithmsthat implement the low-density separation assumption, graph-based methods, and algorithms thatperform two-step learning. The book then discusses SSL applications and offers guidelines for SSLpractitioners by analyzing the results of extensive benchmark experiments. Finally, the book looksat interesting directions for SSL research. The book closes with a discussion of the relationshipbetween semi-supervised learning and transduction.Olivier Chapelle and Alexander Zien are ResearchScientists and Bernhard Schölkopf is Professor and Director at the Max Planck Institute forBiological Cybernetics in Tübingen.

How should we reason in science? Jan Sprenger and Stephan Hartmann offer a refreshing take on classical topics in philosophy of science, using a single key concept to explain and to elucidate manifold aspects of scientific reasoning. They present good arguments and good inferences as beingcharacterized by their effect on our rational degrees of belief. Refuting the view that there is no place for subjective attitudes in "objective science", Sprenger and Hartmann explain the value of convincing evidence in terms of a cycle of variations on the theme of representing rational degrees ofbelief by means of subjective probabilities (and changing them by Bayesian conditionalization). In doing so, they integrate Bayesian inference - the leading theory of rationality in social science - with the practice of 21st century science.Bayesian Philosophy of Science thereby shows how modeling such attitudes improves our understanding of causes, explanations, confirming evidence, and scientific models in general. It combines a scientifically minded and mathematically sophisticated approach with conceptual analysis and attention tomethodological problems of modern science, especially in statistical inference, and is therefore a valuable resource for philosophers and scientific practitioners.

This book honours the outstanding contributions of Vladimir Vapnik, a rare example of a scientist for whom the following statements hold true simultaneously: his work led to the inception of a new field of research, the theory of statistical learning and empirical inference; he has lived to see the field blossom; and he is still as active as ever. He started analyzing learning algorithms in the 1960s and he invented the first version of the generalized portrait algorithm. He later developed one of the most successful methods in machine learning, the support vector machine (SVM) – more than just an algorithm, this was a new approach to learning problems, pioneering the use of functional analysis and convex optimization in machine learning. Part I of this book contains three chapters describing and witnessing some of Vladimir Vapnik's contributions to science. In the first chapter, Léon Bottou discusses the seminal paper published in 1968 by Vapnik and Chervonenkis that lay the foundations of statistical learning theory, and the second chapter is an English-language translation of that original paper. In the third chapter, Alexey Chervonenkis presents a first-hand account of the early history of SVMs and valuable insights into the first steps in the development of the SVM in the framework of the generalised portrait method. The remaining chapters, by leading scientists in domains such as statistics, theoretical computer science, and mathematics, address substantial topics in the theory and practice of statistical learning theory, including SVMs and other kernel-based methods, boosting, PAC-Bayesian theory, online and transductive learning, loss functions, learnable function classes, notions of complexity for function classes, multitask learning, and hypothesis selection. These contributions include historical and context notes, short surveys, and comments on future research directions. This book will be of interest to researchers, engineers, and graduate students engaged with all aspects of statistical learning.
