# Multi-task feature learning

We present a method for learning a low-dimensional representation which is shared across a set of multiple related tasks. The method builds upon the well-known 1-norm regularization problem using a new regularizer which controls the number of learned features common for all the tasks. We show that this problem is equivalent to a convex optimization problem and develop an iterative algorithm for solving it.
