Domain adaptation problems often arise often in the field of sentiment classification. Here, the feature ensemble plus sample selection (SS-FE) approach is proposed, which takes labeling and instance adaptation into account. A feature ensemble (FE) model is first proposed to learn a new labeling function in a feature reweighting manner. Furthermore, a PCA-based sample selection (PCA-SS) method is proposed as an aid to FE. Experimental results show that the proposed SS-FE approach could gain significant improvements, compared to FE or PCA-SS, because of its comprehensive consideration of both labeling adaptation and instance adaptation.
