Bayesian multitask inverse reinforcement learning
We generalise the problem of inverse reinforcement learning to multiple tasks, from multiple demonstrations. Each one may represent one expert trying to solve a different task, or ...

Nonparametric Bayesian feature selection for multi-task learning
We present a nonparametric Bayesian model for multi-task learning, with a focus on feature selection in binary classification. The model jointly identifies groups of similar tas...

Multi-task preference learning with an application to hearing aid personalization
We present an EM-algorithm for the problem of learning preferences with Gaussian processes in the context of multi-task learning. We validate our approach on an audiological data ...

Probabilistic Joint Feature Selection for Multi-task Learning
We study the joint feature selection problem when learning multiple related classification or regression tasks. By imposing an automatic relevance determination prior on the hypo...

Multi-Task Learning via Conic Programming
When we have several related tasks, solving them simultaneously is shown to be more effective than solving them individually. This approach is called multi-task learning (MTL) and...

Clustered Multi-Task Learning: A Convex Formulation
In multi-task learning several related tasks are considered simultaneously, with the hope that by an appropriate sharing of information across tasks, each task may benefit from th...

Multi-task learning for boosting with application to web search ranking
In this paper we propose a novel algorithm for multi-task learning with boosted decision trees. We learn several different learning tasks with a joint model, explicitly addressing...

Using Knowledge to Speed Learning: A Comparison of Knowledge-based Cascade-correlation and Multi-task Learning
Cognitive modeling with neural networks unrealistically ignores the role of knowledge in learning by starting from random weights. It is likely that effective use of knowledge by ...

Learning Gaussian processes from multiple tasks
We consider the problem of multi-task learning, that is, learning multiple related functions. Our approach is based on a hierarchical Bayesian framework, that exploits the equival...

A convex formulation for learning shared structures from multiple tasks
Multi-task learning (MTL) aims to improve generalization performance by learning multiple related tasks simultaneously. In this paper, we consider the problem of learning shared s...
