One of the most successful semi-supervised learning approaches is co-training for multi-view data. In co-training, one trains two classifiers, one for each view, and uses the most confident predictions of the unlabeled data for the two classifiers to ``teach each other''. In this paper, we extend co-training to learning scenarios without an explicit multi-view representation. Inspired by a theoretical analysis of Balcan et. al (2004), we introduce a novel algorithm that splits the feature space during learning, explicitly to encourage co-training to be successful. We demonstrate the efficacy of our proposed method in a weakly-supervised setting on the challenging Caltech-256 object recognition task, where we improve significantly over previous results by (Bergamo & Torresani, 2010) in almost all training-set size settings.
