Computer Vision as a eld has gone through signicant changes in the last decade.
The eld has seen tremendous success in designing learning systems with hand-crafted
features and in using representation learning to extract better features. In this dissertation
some novel approaches to representation learning and task learning are studied.
Multiple-instance learning which is generalization of supervised learning, is one
example of task learning that is discussed. In particular, a novel non-parametric k-
