Axis 4: Domain adaptation from a pre-trained source model

Participants : Christophe Biernacki, Pascal Germain, Luxin Zhang.

Traditional statistical learning paradigm assumes the consistency between train and test data distributions. This rarely holds in many real-life applications. The domain adaptation paradigm proposes a variety of techniques to overcome this issue. Most of the works in this area seek either for a latent space where source and target data share the same distribution, or for a transformation of the source distribution to match the target one. Both strategies require learning a model on the transformed source data. An original scenario is studied where one is given a model that has been constructed using expertise on the source data that is not accessible anymore. To use directly this model on target data, we propose to learn a transformation from the target domain to the source domain. Up to our knowledge, this is a new perspective on domain adaptation. This learning problem is introduced and formalized. We study the assumptions and the sufficient conditions mandatory to guarantee a good accuracy when using the source model directly on transformed target data. By pursuing this idea, a new domain adaptation method based on optimal transport is proposed. We experiment our method on a fraud detection problem.

Luxin Zhang begun his PhD thesis on this topic and presented this early result in an international conference [51].

It is a joint work with Yacine Kessaci, both from Worldline.
