The aim of transfer learning is to improve prediction accuracy on a target task by exploiting the training examples for tasks that are related to the target one. Transfer learning has received more attention in recent years, because this technique is considered to be helpful in reducing the cost of labeling. In this paper, we propose a very simple approach(More)
With the spread of data mining technologies and the accumulation of social data, such technologies and data are being used for determinations that seriously affect individuals’ lives. For example, credit scoring is frequently determined based on the records of past credit data together with statistical prediction techniques. Needless to say, such(More)

Lists of ordered objects are widely used as representational forms. Such ordered objects include Web search results or best-seller lists. Clustering is a useful data analysis technique for grouping mutually similar objects. To cluster orders, hierarchical clustering methods have been used together with dissimilarities defined between pairs of orders.(More)
Ordered lists of objects are widely used as representational forms. Such ordered objects include Web search results or bestseller lists. In spite of their importance, methods of processing orders have received little attention. However, research concerning orders has become common; in particular, researchers have developed various methods for the task of(More)
We advocate a new learning task that deals with orders of items, and we call this the Learning from Order Examples (LOE) task. The aim of the task is to acquire the rule that is used for estimating the proper order of a given unordered item set. The rule is acquired from training examples that are ordered item sets. We present several solution methods for(More)
With recent developments in machine learning technology, the predictions by systems incorporating machine learning can now have a significant impact on the lives and activities of individuals. In some cases, predictions made by machine learning can result unexpectedly in unfair treatments to individuals. For example, if the results are highly dependent on(More)
Many e-commerce sites use recommender systems, which suggest items that customers prefer. Though recommender systems have achieved great success, their potential is not yet fulfilled. One weakness of current systems is that the actions of the system toward customers are restricted to simply showing items. We propose a system that relaxes this restriction to(More)
