Given several related tasks, single-task learning learns each task separately and ignores the relationships among these tasks. Different from single-task learning, multi-task learning can explore more information to learn all tasks jointly by using relationships among these tasks. In this paper, we propose a novel multi-task learning model based on the proximal support vector machine. The proximal support vector machine uses the large-margin idea as does the standard support vector machines but with looser constraints and much lower computational cost. Our multi-task proximal support vector machine inherits the merits of the proximal support vector machine and achieves better performance compared with other popular multi-task learning models. Experiments are conducted on several multi-task learning datasets, including two classification datasets and one regression dataset. All results demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of our proposed multi-task proximal support vector machine.
