In multiview multilabel learning, each object is represented by several heterogeneous feature representations and is also annotated with a set of discrete nonexclusive labels. Previous studies typically focus on capturing the shared latent patterns among multiple views, while not sufficiently considering the diverse characteristics of individual views, which can cause performance degradation. In this article, we propose a novel approach [individuality- and commonality-based multiview multilabel learning (ICM2L)] to explicitly explore the individuality and commonality information of multilabel multiple view data in a unified model. Specifically, a common subspace is learned across different views to capture the shared patterns. Then, multiple individual classifiers are exploited to explore the characteristics of individual views. Next, an ensemble strategy is adopted to make a prediction. Finally, we develop an alternative solution to joinly optimize our model, which can enhance the robustness of the proposed model toward rare labels and reinforce the reciprocal effects of individuality and commonality among heterogeneous views, and thus further improve the performance. Experiments on various real-word datasets validate the effectiveness of ICM2L against the state-of-the-art solutions, and ICM2L can leverage the individuality and commonality information to achieve an improved performance as well as to enhance the robustness toward rare labels
