R Semi-Supervised Learning package

This R package provides implementations of several semi-supervised learning methods, in particular, our own work involving constraint based semi-supervised learning.

Installation Instructions

This package available on CRAN. The easiest way to install the package is to use:

install.packages("RSSL")

To install the latest version of the package using the devtools package:

library(devtools)
install_github("jkrijthe/RSSL")

Usage

After installation, load the package as usual:

library(RSSL)

The following code generates a simple dataset, trains a supervised and two semi-supervised classifiers and evaluates their performance:

library(dplyr,warn.conflicts = FALSE)
library(ggplot2,warn.conflicts = FALSE)

set.seed(2)
df <- generate2ClassGaussian(200, d=2, var = 0.2, expected=TRUE)

# Randomly remove labels
df <- df %>% add_missinglabels_mar(Class~.,prob=0.98) 

# Train classifier
g_nm <- NearestMeanClassifier(Class~.,df,prior=matrix(0.5,2))
g_self <- SelfLearning(Class~.,df,
                       method=NearestMeanClassifier,
                       prior=matrix(0.5,2))

# Plot dataset
df %>% 
  ggplot(aes(x=X1,y=X2,color=Class,size=Class)) +
  geom_point() +
  coord_equal() +
  scale_size_manual(values=c("-1"=3,"1"=3), na.value=1) +
  geom_linearclassifier("Supervised"=g_nm,
                  "Semi-supervised"=g_self)


# Evaluate performance: Squared Loss & Error Rate
mean(loss(g_nm,df))
mean(loss(g_self,df))


mean(predict(g_nm,df)!=df$Class)
mean(predict(g_self,df)!=df$Class)
