In the last decade, semi-supervised learning [20, 27, 63, 89, 167] techniques have been proposed to address the labeled data sparsity problem by making use of a large amount of unlabeled data to discover an intrinsic data structure to effectively propagate label information. Nevertheless, most semi-supervised methods require that the training data, including labeled and unlabeled data, and the test data are both from the same domain of interest, which implicitly assumes the training and test data are still represented in the same feature space and drawn from the same data distribution.
