EFFICIENT LIFELONG LEARNING ALGORITHM (ELLA)

Version 1.0  (July 3, 2013)

Copyright (c) 2013  Paul Ruvolo & Eric Eaton

The copyright extends to all implementation files for ELLA under this distribution.

BUILDING

The ELLA code is written in pure matlab and thus does not need to be built.
However, ELLA does have a dependency on the Sparse Additive Modeling Toolbox of
Julien Mairal et al. (http://spams-devel.gforge.inria.fr/).  In order to use
ELLA one must first go to the subdirectory 'externalLibs/spams-matlab' and
follow the instructions for building this toolbox.



RUNNING THE CODE

We have included three demos for utilizing the different aspects of the ELLA
software.  The demo files are called:
	(1) runExperiment
	(2) runExperimentActiveTask
	(3) runExperimentActiveTaskTargeted

DATA

This release includes the landmine data set for use by the demonstration scripts. 
The landmine data was originally described in:

Xue, Y., Liao, X., Carin, L., & Krishnapuram, B. (2007). Multi-task learning for classification with Dirichlet process priors. The Journal of Machine Learning Research, 8, 35-63.

Please cite this paper if you use the landmine data set in your own work.
