  abstract =     "We consider multi-task learning of visual concepts
                 within genetic programming (GP) framework. The proposed
                 method evolves a population of GP individuals, with
                 each of them composed of several GP trees that process
                 visual primitives derived from input images. The two
                 main trees are delegated to solving two different
                 visual tasks and are allowed to share knowledge with
                 each other by calling the remaining GP trees
                 (sub-functions) included in the same individual. The
                 method is applied to the visual learning task of
                 recognising simple shapes, using generative approach
                 based on visual primitives, introduced in [17]. We
                 compare this approach to a reference method devoid of
                 knowledge sharing, and conclude that in the worst case
                 cross-task learning performs equally well, and in many
                 cases it leads to significant performance improvements
                 in one or both solved tasks.",
