Human-Guided Statistical Relational Learning


Hosted by IEEE Computer Society, Atlanta chapter

Recently there has been an increased interest in intelligent systems that effectively utilize human feedback. Traditional machine learners are reliant on a large amount of ideal training data. However, it is vital that learning systems working on complex, real-world tasks make use of expert knowledge to complement available data. Many intelligent systems require that the expert understand machine learning in order to provide useful knowledge. This talk will give an overview of relational learning techniques and then describe approaches that exploit the relational structure to incorporate expert knowledge in an intuitive way.
