We explore the task of tissue classification for colon cancer histology in a low label regime comparing a semi-supervised and a supervised learning strategy in a series of experiments. Further, we investigate the model robustness w.r.t. distribution shifts in the unlabeled data and domain shifts across different scanners to prove their practicality in a histology context. By utilizing unlabeled data in addition to nl = 1000 labeled tiles per class, we yield a substantial increase in accuracy from 89.9% to 91.4%.
