Interpretability has become an important issue in the machine learning field, along with the success of layered neural networks in various practical tasks. Since a trained layered neural network consists of a complex nonlinear relationship between large number of parameters, we failed to understand how they could achieve input-output mappings with a given data set. In this paper, we propose the non-negative task matrix decomposition method, which applies non-negative matrix factorization to a trained layered neural network. This enables us to decompose the inference mechanism of a trained layered neural network into multiple principal tasks of input-output mapping, and reveal the roles of hidden units in terms of their contribution to each principal task.
