A User Simulator for Task-Completion DialoguesDec 17 2016Nov 13 2017Despite widespread interests in reinforcement-learning for task-oriented dialogue systems, several obstacles can frustrate research and development progress. First, reinforcement learners typically require interaction with the environment, so conventional ... More

Discriminative Deep Dyna-Q: Robust Planning for Dialogue Policy LearningAug 28 2018Sep 06 2018This paper presents a Discriminative Deep Dyna-Q (D3Q) approach to improving the effectiveness and robustness of Deep Dyna-Q (DDQ), a recently proposed framework that extends the Dyna-Q algorithm to integrate planning for task-completion dialogue policy ...

Refined Schur Method for Robust Pole Assignment with Repeated PolesFeb 27 2016Schur-type methods in \cite{Chu2} and \cite{GCQX} solve the robust pole assignment problem by employing the departure from normality of the closed-loop system matrix as the measure of robustness. They work well generally when all poles to be assigned ... More

Paying More Attention to Motion: Attention Distillation for Learning Video RepresentationsApr 05 2019We address the challenging problem of learning motion representations using deep models for video recognition. To this end, we make use of attention modules that learn to highlight regions in the video and aggregate features for recognition. Specifically, ... More

Majorana Fermions in Periodically Driven Semiconductor-Superconductor HeterostructureJun 17 2013We propose a new approach to create Majorana fermions at the edge of a periodically driven semiconductor-superconductor Heterostructure. We calculate the quasi-energy spectrum of the periodically driven Heterostructure by using the Floquet's theory. When ... More

On the Weak Convergence and Central Limit Theorem of Blurring and Nonblurring Processes with Application to Robust Location EstimationDec 03 2014Jan 27 2015This article studies the weak convergence and associated Central Limit Theorem for blurring and nonblurring processes. Then, they are applied to the estimation of location parameter. Simulation studies show that the location estimation based on the convergence ... More

A real-time design based on FPGA for Expeditious Error Reconciliation in QKD systemJan 10 2013For high-speed quantum key distribution systems, error reconciliation is often the bottleneck affecting system performance. By exchanging common information through a public channel, the identical key can be generated on both communicating sides. However, ... More
