Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Semi-supervised learning (SSL) is a technique which makes use of unlabeled data in addition to labeled data to obtain better learning accuracies. The most fundamental and widely applicable subtype of SSL is called self-training, which produces additional labeled data from unlabeled data using the results of the classifier trained with the existing labeled data. Conventionally, the additional labeling is performed only on unlabeled data with high prediction confidence above the built-in threshold predetermined by the designer. On the other hand, it is known that learning data near the decision boundary play a crucial role for classification performances. In this paper, we introduce this knowledge to self-training by selectively labeling unconfident unlabeled data near the decision boundary. We also propose a novel method using optimal region accumulation which automatically optimizes the labeling threshold to accumulate data near the boundary.
