© Springer International Publishing AG 2016. Multi-label learning is a challenging problem in computer vision field. In this paper, we propose a novel active learning approach to reduce the annotation costs greatly for multi-label classification. State-of-the-art active learning methods either annotate all the relevant samples without diagnosing discriminative information in the labels or annotate only limited discriminative samples manually, that has weak immunity for the outlier labels. To overcome these problems, we propose a multi-label active learning method based on Maximum Correntropy Criterion (MCC) by merging uncertainty and representativeness. We use the the labels of labeled data and the prediction labels of unknown data to enhance the uncertainty and representativeness measurement by merging strategy, and use the MCC to alleviate the influence of outlier labels for discriminative labeling. Experiments on several challenging benchmark multi-label datasets show the superior performance of our proposed method to the state-of-the-art methods.
