Deep networks have significantly improved the state of the arts for several tasks in computer vision. Unfortunately, the impressive performance gains have come at the price of the use of massive amounts of labeled data. As the cost of collecting and annotating data is often prohibitive, given a target task where few or no training samples are available, it would be desirable to build effective learners that can leverage information from labeled data
of a different but related source domain. However, a major obstacle in adapting models to the target task is the shift in data distributions across different domains. This problem, typically referred as domain shift, has motivated research into Domain Adaptation (DA). Another major issue with deep networks is their inherent difficulty to learn sequentially over a large number of tasks without forgetting knowledge obtained from the previous tasks. This last problem is addressed by Continual Learning (CL) methods. In the last few years, we developed several deep learning-based approaches for DA and CL for visual recognition and robot perception tasks.
