Outlier detection is an important topic in machine learning and has been used in a wide range of applications. [] Key Method To address this, we propose a novel Single-Objective Generative Adversarial Active Learning (SO-GAAL) method for outlier detection, which can directly generate informative potential outliers based on the mini-max game between a generator and a discriminator.
