  • Publication number: 20220092622
    Abstract: The learning unit 81 learns an attribute viewpoint model in which attributes of a target are explanatory variables for each target person so as to minimize a difference between a prediction result by a predictor that predicts an evaluation result of each target person based on a feature vector of the target person and a prediction result by a prediction model that predicts an evaluation result learned for each target person, using the attributes of the target as explanatory variables. The attribute generation unit 82 generates an attribute so that an evaluation result obtained according to the attribute applied to the learned prediction model satisfies the specified objective.

  • Publication number: 20220092475
    Abstract: A target task attribute estimation unit 81 estimates an attribute vector of an existing predictor based on samples in a domain of a target task, and estimates an attribute vector of the target task based on a transformation method for transforming labeled samples into a space consisting of the estimated attribute vector based on a result of applying the labeled samples of the target task to the predictor. A prediction value calculation unit 82 calculates a prediction value of a prediction target sample to be transformed by the transformation method based on the attribute vector of the target task.
