Multiple instance learning (MIL) is a generalization of supervised learning which attempts to learn useful information from bags of instances. In MIL, the true labels of the instances in positive bags are not always available for training. This leads to a critical challenge, namely, handling the ambiguity of instance labels in positive bags. To address this issue, this paper proposes a novel MIL method named SMILE (Similarity-based Multiple Instance LEarning). It introduces a similarity weight… CONTINUE READING
