We show a Talagrand-type of concentration inequality for MTL, using which we establish sharp excess risk bounds for Multi-Task Learning (MTL) in terms of distribution-and data-dependent versions of the Local Rademacher Complexity (LRC). We also give a new bound on the LRC for strongly convex hypothesis classes, which applies not only to MTL but also to the(More)
When faced with learning a set of interrelated tasks from a limited amount of usable data, learning each task independently may lead to poor generalization performance. Multi-Task Learning (MTL) exploits the latent relations between tasks and overcomes data scarcity limitations by co-learning all these tasks simultaneously to offer improved performance. We(More)

There are several problems associated with managing cattle feed such as how to best satisfy feed deficits or how to utilize extra feed available.
