Questions tagged [multi-task-learning]

For questions related to multi-task learning (MTL), which is a subfield of machine learning in which multiple learning tasks are solved at the same time, while exploiting commonalities and differences across tasks. MTL can result in improved learning efficiency and prediction accuracy for the task-specific models, when compared to training the models separately.

Is there a multi-task RL algorithm that supports different action spaces for each agent?

I'm currently working on a project in which I need apply multi-task reinforcement learning. Over the same state space, each agent aims to do a separate task, but the action spaces of agents are ...

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 ...

Multi-task learning with heterogenous features

I recently discovered multi-task learning using neural networks (an excellent introduction here), and find it a fascinating research area. Common approaches seem to be: Learning a shared ...

ignoring instances or masking by zero in multitask learning model

For a multitask learning model, I've seen that approaches usually mask the output that doesn't have a label with zeros. As an example, have a look here: How to Multi-task learning with missing labels ...

Do the terms multi-task and multi-output refer to the same thing in the context of deep learning?

Do the terms multi-task and multi-output refer to the same thing in the context of deep learning (with neural networks)? For example, do neural networks for multi-task learning use multiple outputs? ...

Is optimizing weighted sum multi objective tasks considered a multi-task learning?

I have two sequence prediction tasks, finding $\vec{\pi} \in \Pi$ and $\vec{\psi} \in \Psi$. Each sequence has its own objective function, i.e. $f_1(\vec{\pi})$ and $f_2(\vec{\psi})$. The input for ...

How should I incorporate numerical and categorical data as part of the inputs to the U-net for semantic segmentation?

I am using a U-Net to segment cancer cells in images of patients' arms. I would like to add patient data to it in order to see if it is possible to enhance the segmentation (patient data comes in the ...

How to deal with losses on different scales in multi-task learning?

Say I'm training a model for multiple tasks by trying to minimize sum of losses $L_1 + L_2$ via gradient descent. If these losses are on a different scale, the one whose range is greater will dominate ...

How do I format task features with a one-hot task identification vector to ensure separate weight matrices for each task in multi-task RL?

I am on Lecture 2 of Stanford CS330 Multi-Task and Meta-learning, and on slide 10, the professor describes using a one-hot input vector to represent the task, and she also explained that there would ...
