The main idea behind active learning is that if the learner gets to pick the instances to learn from rather than being handed labeled data, it can learn more effectively with less data (Reference [6]). With very small amount of labeled data, it can carefully pick instances from unlabeled data to get label information and use that to iteratively improve learning. This basic approach of querying for unlabeled data to get labels from a so-called oracle—an expert ...
