Training models to predict click and order targets at the same time. For better user satisfaction and business effectiveness, multitask learning is one of the most important methods in e-commerce. Some existing researches model user representation based on historical behaviour sequence to capture user interests. It is often the case that user interests may change from their past routines. However, multi-perspective attention has broad horizon, which covers different characteristics of human
more &raquo; ... oning, emotions, perception, attention, and memory. In this paper, we attempt to introduce the multi-perspective attention and sequence behaviour into multitask learning. Our proposed method offers better understanding of user interest and decision. To achieve more flexible parameter sharing and maintaining the special feature advantage of each task, we improve the attention mechanism at the view of expert interactive. To the best of our knowledge, we firstly propose the implicit interaction mode, the explicit hard interaction mode, the explicit soft interaction mode, and the data fusion mode in multitask learning. We do experiments on public data and lab medical data. The results show that our model consistently achieves remarkable improvements to the state-of-the-art method.
