AMIL: Active Multiple-Instance Library

AMIL Software

AMIL is an integrated set of Java code for learning probabilistic models for Multiple Instance (MI) classification problems. It implements basic data structures for managing bags and instances, data read/write methods, and a general framework for learning probabilistic classifiers based on a generalization of Diverse Density (Maron & Lozano-Perez, NIPS 1998) including MI Logistic Regression (Ray & Craven, ICML 2005). Additionally, it implements instance-query selection strategies for MI Active Learning and modifications to the training algorithm to learn from labels at multiple levels of granularity (Settles et al., NIPS 2008).
