Many machine learning problems can be interpreted as differing just in the level of supervision provided to the learning process. In this work we provide a unifying way of dealing with these different degrees of supervision. We show how the framework developed to accommodate this vision can deal with the continuum between classification and clustering, while also naturally accommodating less standard settings such as learning from label proportions, multiple instance learning,...All this emanates from a simple common principle: when in doubt, assume the simplest possible classification problem on the data.
