For the past year, my team and I have been working on a personalized user experience in the Taboola feed. We used Multi-Task Learning (MTL) to predict multiple Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on the same set of input features, and implemented a Deep Learning (DL) model in TensorFlow to do so. Back when we started, MTL seemed way more complicated to us than it does now, so I wanted to share some of the lessons learned. There are already quite a few posts about implementing MTL in a DL model (1, 2, 3). In this post I will share some specific points to consider when implementing MTL in a Neural Network (NN). I will also present simple TensorFlow solutions to overcome the discussed issues.   Sharing is caring We wanted to start with the basic approach of hard parameter sharing. Hard sharing means we have a shared subnet, followed by […]
