**Instruction-based Behavior Explanation (IBE)**

In cooperation, the workers must know how co-workers behave. However, an agent’s policy, which is embedded in a statistical machine learning model, is hard to understand, and requires much time and knowledge to comprehend. Therefore, it is difficult for people to predict the behavior of machine learning robots, which makes Human Robot Cooperation challenging. In this paper, we propose Instruction-based Behavior Explanation (IBE), a method to explain an autonomous agent’s future behavior. In IBE, an agent can autonomously acquire the expressions to explain its own behavior by reusing the instructions given by a human expert to accelerate the learning of the agent’s policy. IBE also enables a developmental agent, whose policy may change during the cooperation, to explain its own behavior with sufficient time granularity. … **Tensor Regression Networks (TRN)**

To date, most convolutional neural network architectures output predictions by flattening 3rd-order activation tensors, and applying fully-connected output layers. This approach has two drawbacks: (i) we lose rich, multi-modal structure during the flattening process and (ii) fully-connected layers require many parameters. We present the first attempt to circumvent these issues by expressing the output of a neural network directly as the the result of a multi-linear mapping from an activation tensor to the output. By imposing low-rank constraints on the regression tensor, we can efficiently solve problems for which existing solutions are badly parametrized. Our proposed tensor regression layer replaces flattening operations and fully-connected layers by leveraging multi-modal structure in the data and expressing the regression weights via a low rank tensor decomposition. Additionally, we combine tensor regression with tensor contraction to further increase efficiency. Augmenting the VGG and ResNet architectures, we demonstrate large reductions in the number of parameters with negligible impact on performance on the ImageNet dataset. … **Linear Algebra Package (LAPACK)**

LAPACK (Linear Algebra Package) is a software library for numerical linear algebra. It provides routines for solving systems of linear equations and linear least squares, eigenvalue problems, and singular value decomposition. It also includes routines to implement the associated matrix factorizations such as LU, QR, Cholesky and Schur decomposition. …
