Selection of variables structured by regularization in a multi-task framework

Abstract : Motivated by diagnostic applications in the field of clinical microbiology, we introduce a joint in-put/output regularization method to perform struc-tured variable selection in a multi-task setting where tasks can exhibit various degrees of correlation. Our approach extensively relies on the tree-structured group-lasso penalty and explicitly combines hierarchical structures defined across features and task by means of the Cartesian product of graphs to induce a global hierarchical group structure. A vectorization procedure is then used to solve the resulting multi-task problem with standard mono-task optimization algorithms developed for the overlapping group-lasso problem. Experimental results on simulated and real data demonstrate the interest of the approach.
