Description and background
------------------------
Recently, transfer learning (TL) has gained much popularity as an approach
to reduce the training-data calibration effort as well as to improve
generalization performance of learning tasks. Unlike traditional learning,
transfer learning methods make the best use of data from one or more

Update: Pascal Challenge on Large Scale Hierarchical Text Classification

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Wed, 30/09/2009 - 00:00

*** Change of important dates ***
*** End of testing: November 16 ***
*** End of scalability tests: December 14 ***

The challenge is well underway now and we are happy to observe very active participation by
various research teams. As mentioned above, we have decided to extend the end of the challenge, which will hopefully give more time to the participants to improve their methods.

For more information about the challenge, please refer to its Web site.
