In practice, the data distribution at test time often differs, to a smaller or larger extent, from that of the original training data. Consequentially, the so-called source classifier, trained on the available labelled data, deteriorates on the test, or target, data. Domain adaptive classifiers aim to combat this problem, but typically assume some particular form of domain shift. Most are not robust to violations of domain shift assumptions and may even perform worse than their non-adaptive
