Semi-supervised structured output prediction by local linear regression and sub-gradient descent

  title={Semi-supervised structured output prediction by local linear regression and sub-gradient descent},
  author={Yihua Zhou and Jingbin Wang and Lihui Shi and Haoxiang Wang and Xin Du and Guilherme Silva},
We propose a novel semi-supervised structured output prediction method based on local linear regression in this paper. The existing semi-supervise structured output prediction methods learn a global predictor for all the data points in a data set, which ignores the differences of local distributions of the data set, and the effects to the structured output prediction. To solve this problem, we propose to learn the missing structured outputs and local predictors for neighborhoods of different…
