Abstract

Transfer learning is a successful technique that significantlyimproves machine learning algorithms by training on a sequence oftasks rather than a single task in isolation. However, there iscurrently no systematic method for deciding how to construct such asequence of tasks. In this paper, I propose that while humans arewell-suited for the task of curriculum development, significantresearch is still necessary to better understand how to createeffective curricula for machine learning algorithms.
