520 3  Semi-supervised learning is a learning paradigm concerned 
       with the study of how computers and natural systems such 
       as humans learn in the presence of both labeled and 
       unlabeled data. Traditionally, learning has been studied 
       either in the unsupervised paradigm (e.g., clustering, 
       outlier detection) where all the data is unlabeled, or in 
       the supervised paradigm (e.g., classification, regression)
       where all the data is labeled. The goal of semi-supervised
       learning is to understand how combining labeled and 
       unlabeled data may change the learning behavior, and 
       design algorithms that take advantage of such a 
       combination. Semi-supervised learning is of great interest
       in machine learning and data mining because it can use 
       readily available unlabeled data to improve supervised 
       learning tasks when the labeled data is scarce or 
       expensive. Semi-supervised learning also shows potential 
       as a quantitative tool to understand human category 
       learning, where most of the input is self-evidently 
       unlabeled. In this introductory book, we present some 
       popular semi-supervised learning models, including self-
       training, mixture models, co-training and multiview 
       learning, graph-based methods, and semisupervised support 
       vector machines. For each model, we discuss its basic 
       mathematical formulation. The success of semi-supervised 
       learning depends critically on some underlying 
       assumptions. We emphasize the assumptions made by each 
       model and give counterexamples when appropriate to 
       demonstrate the limitations of the different models. In 
       addition, we discuss semi-supervised learning for 
       cognitive psychology. Finally, we give a computational 
       learning theoretic perspective on semisupervised learning,
       and we conclude the book with a brief discussion of open 
       questions in the field.
