Keywords: Partial Domain Adaptation
TL;DR: We propose an end-to-end framework for learning discriminative invariant feature representation while preventing negative transfer in partial domain adaptation using three novel modules - "select", "label", and "mix".
Abstract: Partial domain adaptation which assumes that the unknown target label space is a subset of the source label space has attracted much attention in computer vision. Despite recent progress, existing methods often suffer from three key problems: negative transfer, lack of discriminability, and domain invariance in the latent space. To alleviate the above issues, we develop a novel 'Select, Label, and Mix' (SLM) framework that aims to learn discriminative invariant feature representations for partial domain adaptation. First, we present an efficient "select" module that automatically filters out the outlier source samples to avoid negative transfer while aligning distributions across both domains. Second, the "label" module iteratively trains the classifier using both the labeled source domain data and the generated pseudo-labels for the target domain to enhance the discriminability of the latent space. Finally, the "mix" module utilizes domain mixup jointly with the other two modules to explore more intrinsic structures across domains leading to a domain-invariant latent space for partial domain adaptation. Experiments on two datasets demonstrate the superiority of our framework over state-of-the-art methods. Project page: https://cvir.github.io/projects/slm
