Domain adaptation learning aims to solve the classification problems of unlabeled target domain by using rich labeled samples in source domain, but there are three main problems: negative transfer, under adaptation and under fitting. Aiming at these problems, a domain adaptation network based on hypergraph regularized denoising autoencoder (DAHDA) is proposed in this paper. To better fit the data distribution, the network is built with denoising autoencoder which can extract more robust feature representation. In the last feature and classification layers, the marginal and conditional distribution matching terms between domains are obtained via maximum mean discrepancy measurement to solve the under adaptation problem. To avoid negative transfer, the hypergraph regularization term is introduced to explore the high-order relationships among data. The classification performance of the model can be improved by preserving the statistical property and geometric structure simultaneously. Experimental results of 16 cross-domain transfer tasks verify that DAHDA outperforms other state-of-the-art methods.
