Graphical Abstract:


Background: Semi-supervised learning in the machine learning community has received widespread attention. Semi-supervised learning can use a small number of tagged samples and a large number of untagged samples for efficient learning.

Methods: In 2014, Kim proposed a new semi-supervised learning method: the minimax label propagation (MMLP) method. This method reduces time complexity to O (n), with a smaller computation cost and stronger classification ability than traditional methods. However, classification results are not accurate in large-scale image classifications. Thus, in this paper, we propose a semisupervised image classification method, which is an MMLP-based algorithm. The main idea is threefold: (1) Improving connectivity of image pixels by pixel sampling to reduce the image size, at the same time, reduce the diversity of image characteristics; (2) Using a recall feature to improve the MMLP algorithm; (3) through classification mapping, gaining the classification of the original data from the classification of the data reduction.

Results: In the end, our algorithm also gains a minimax path from untagged samples to tagged samples. The experimental results proved that this algorithm is applicable to semi-supervised learning on small-size and that it can also gain better classification results for large-size image at the same time.

Conclusion: In our paper, considering the connectivity of the neighboring matrix and the diversity of the characteristics, we used meanshift clustering algorithm, next we will use fuzzy energy clustering on our algorithm. We will study the function of these paths.

Keywords: Graph-based semi-supervised learning, MMLP algorithm, data reduction, recall feature, classification mapping, neural network models.
