**Transductive Adversarial Network (TAN)**

Transductive Adversarial Networks (TAN) is a novel domain-adaptation machine learning framework that is designed for learning a conditional probability distribution on unlabelled input data in a target domain, while also only having access to: (1) easily obtained labelled data from a related source domain, which may have a different conditional probability distribution than the target domain, and (2) a marginalised prior distribution on the labels for the target domain. TAN leverages a fully adversarial training procedure and a unique generator/encoder architecture which approximates the transductive combination of the available source- and target-domain data. A benefit of TAN is that it allows the distance between the source- and target-domain label-vector marginal probability distributions to be greater than 0 (i.e. different tasks across the source and target domains) whereas other domain-adaptation algorithms require this distance to equal 0 (i.e. a single task across the source and target domains). TAN can, however, still handle the latter case and is a more generalised approach to this case. Another benefit of TAN is that due to being a fully adversarial algorithm, it has the potential to accurately approximate highly complex distributions. Theoretical analysis demonstrates the viability of the TAN framework. … **ATPboost**

ATPboost is a system for solving sets of large-theory problems by interleaving ATP runs with state-of-the-art machine learning of premise selection from the proofs. Unlike many previous approaches that use multi-label setting, the learning is implemented as binary classification that estimates the pairwise-relevance of (theorem, premise) pairs. ATPboost uses for this the XGBoost gradient boosting algorithm, which is fast and has state-of-the-art performance on many tasks. Learning in the binary setting however requires negative examples, which is nontrivial due to many alternative proofs. We discuss and implement several solutions in the context of the ATP/ML feedback loop, and show that ATPboost with such methods significantly outperforms the k-nearest neighbors multilabel classifier. … **Semantic Lexicon**

A semantic lexicon is a dictionary of words labeled with semantic classes so associations can be drawn between words that have not previously been encountered: it is a dictionary with a semantic network. …
