16. ### Classifier HP-Net Training 1. train classifier F and HP-Net S

jointly on training set D 2. run S on D and eliminate hard examples, to create realistic training set D′ 3. learn realistic classifier F′ on D′, with S fixed 4. output pair S, F′ 5. GOTO 1 D F S

22. ### C - normal classifier F - realistic predictor without fine-tuning

(just rejection) F’ - realistic predictor, fine-tuned on samples accepted by HP-Net
23. ### Conclusions • There are times when it’s OK to skip

hard samples • ...and times when it’s BEST to reject hard samples • The paper introduces a GAN-like architecture to train any classifier with its own hardness predictor • Training with a hardness predictor improves accuracy • HP-Net should be trained jointly with the classifier, but in an alternating order • HP-Net solves a different problem from the Classifier, should be a separate model • ….but best results are when the architectures are the same

よびSF小説である。 2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 epic science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay was written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, and was inspired by Clarke's short story "The Sentinel". A novel also called 2001: A Space Odyssey, written concurrently with the screenplay, was published soon after the film was released. 2001: A Space Odyssey https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001:_A_Space_Odyssey_(film)

music in space.

HAL kills Frank.
