In gender classification, labeled data is often limited while unlabeled data is ample. This motivates semi-supervised learning for gender classification to improve the performance by exploring the knowledge in both labeled and unlabeled data.

Specifically, we propose a factor graph, namely Textual… CONTINUE READING
