On Learning Evidential Contextual Corrections from Soft Labels Using a Measure of Discrepancy Between Contour Functions

In this paper, a proposition is made to learn the parameters of evidential contextual correction mechanisms from a learning set composed of soft labelled data, that is data where the true class of each object is only partially known. The method consists in optimizing a measure of discrepancy between the values of the corrected contour function and the ground truth also represented by a contour function. The advantages of this method are illustrated by tests on synthetic and real data.
