Autonomous Skill Acquisition on a Mobile Manipulator
We describe a robot system that autonomously acquires skills through interaction with its environment. The robot learns to sequence the execution of a set of innate controllers to...

Policy Gradient Planning for Environmental Decision Making with Existing Simulators
In environmental and natural resource planning domains actions are taken at a large number of locations over multiple time periods. These problems have enormous state and action s...

Exploiting Phase Transition in Latent Networks for Clustering
In this paper, we model the pair-wise similarities of a set of documents as a weighted network with a single cutoff parameter. Such a network can be thought of an ensemble of unwe...

Size Adaptive Selection of Most Informative Features
In this paper, we propose a novel method to select the most informative subset of features, which has little redundancy and very strong discriminating power. Our proposed approach...

Tree Sequence Kernel for Natural Language
We propose Tree Sequence Kernel (TSK), which implicitly exhausts the structure features of a sequence of subtrees embedded in the phrasal parse tree. By incorporating the capabili...

Controlling Selection Bias in Causal Inference
Selection bias, caused by preferential exclusion of samples from the data, is a major obstacle to valid causal and statistical inferences; it cannot be removed by randomized exper...

Recognizing Plans with Loops Represented in a Lexicalized Grammar
This paper extends existing plan recognition research to handle plans containing loops. We supply an encoding of plans with loops for recognition, based on techniques used to pars...

Value Function Approximation in Reinforcement Learning Using the Fourier Basis
We describe the Fourier Basis, a linear value function approximation scheme based on the Fourier Series. We empirically evaluate its properties, and demonstrate that it performs w...
