Recent advances in deep learning techniques have contributed to powerful tools for solving image analysis tasks. The major success of these tools relies on supervised models that assume a large set of high-quality labels available for training. This assumption could be problematic in practice, since obtaining the required labels is often time-consuming and expensive. In this talk, we discuss new learning algorithms to overcome these restrictions through various strategies such as multi-tasking and nonlinear modelling. By taking advantage of the intrinsic structures in noisy/unlabelled data and incorporating mathematical and statistical knowledge relevant to the underlying tasks, we make the learning algorithms label-efficient.
