What is the difference between multi-label and multi-task classification?

I am working on a data-set that has multiple labels associated with it (not necessarily independent of each other). During my development, I am confused if I should consider it as a multi-class ...

How to deal with unbalanced data in multilabel classification problem

I have 3 possible solutions, but I am not sure if they are good. I think they are a bit clunky (especially 1st and 2nd). Use multiple small models. So instead of having the model that can tell you ...

What does "adding class weights for an imbalanced dataset" mean in the case of multi-label classification?

Suppose I have the following toy data set: Each instance has multiple labels at a time. You can see I have 2 instances for Label2. However, only one instance for the other labels. It means that we ...
