On the Theory of Transfer Learning: The Importance of Task Diversity

Meta Review

The reviewers reached a consensus that the paper can be accepted to NeurIPS. One additional comment from the meta-reviewer is that because the paper doesn't have any experimental component, it's unclear whether the message in the title "The Importance of Task Diversity" is sufficiently justified. It's true that the theory need the assumption of diverse task, but it's unclear why that's the most important one amont many of the assumptions.
