  • Jackson, Daniel; Estler, H.-Christian; Rayside, Derek (2009-07-03)
    This paper presents a new general-purpose algorithm for exact solving of combinatorial many-objective optimization problems. We call this new algorithm the guided improvement algorithm. The algorithm is implemented on top ...
  • Tacchetti, Andrea; Mallapragada, Pavan S.; Santoro, Matteo; Rosasco, Lorenzo (MIT CSAIL, 2012-01-31)
    We present GURLS, a toolbox for supervised learning based on the regularized least squares algorithm. The toolbox takes advantage of all the favorable properties of least squares and is tailored to deal in particular with ...
  • Ernst, Michael D.; Kiezun, Adam; Ganesh, Vijay; Guo, Philip J.; Hooimeijer, Pieter (2009-02-04)
    Many automatic testing, analysis, and verification techniques for programs can be effectively reduced to a constraint-generation phase followed by a constraint-solving phase. This separation of concerns often leads to more ...
  • Kushman, Nate; Adib, Fadel; Katabi, Dina; Barzilay, Regina (2013-09-10)
    Consider the problem of migrating a company's CRM or ERP database from one application to another, or integrating two such databases as a result of a merger. This problem requires matching two large relational schemas with ...
  • Kinsy, Michel; Pellauer, Michael (2010-12-08)
    Heracles is an open-source complete multicore system written in Verilog. It is fully parameterized and can be reconfigured and synthesized into different topologies and sizes. Each processing node has a 7-stage pipeline, ...
  • Gerber, Georg K.; Dowell, Robin D.; Jaakkola, Tommi S.; Gifford, David K. (2007-07-06)
    An important research problem in computational biology is theidentification of expression programs, sets of co-activatedgenes orchestrating physiological processes, and thecharacterization of the functional breadth of these ...
  • Isik, Leyla; Leibo, Joel Z.; Mutch, Jim; Lee, Sang Wan; Poggio, Tomaso (2011-06-17)
    We present a peripheral vision model inspired by the cortical architecture discovered by Hubel and Wiesel. As with existing cortical models, this model contains alternating layers of simple cells, which employ tuning ...
  • Kaelbling, Leslie Pack; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (2010-05-07)
    In this paper we outline an approach to the integration of task planning and motion planning that has the following key properties: It is aggressively hierarchical. It makes choices and commits to them in a top-down fashion ...
  • Levin, Anat; Glasner, Daniel; Xiong, Ying; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William; Matusik, Wojciech; Zickler, Todd (2013-04-24)
    This manuscript completes the analysis of our SIGGRAPH 2013 paper "Fabricating BRDFs at High Spatial Resolution Using Wave Optics" in which photolithography fabrication was used for manipulating reflectance effects. While ...
  • Dig, Danny; Marrero, John; Ernst, Michael D. (2008-09-05)
    For several decades, programmers have relied onMooreâ s Law to improve the performance of their softwareapplications. From now on, programmers need to programthe multi-cores if they want to deliver efficient code. Inthe ...
  • Liang, Percy; Srebro, Nati (2005-01-03)
    Current approximation algorithms for maximum weight {\em hypertrees} find heavy {\em windmill farms}, and are based on the fact that a constant ratio (for constant width $k$) of the weight of a $k$-hypertree can be captured ...
  • Teevan, Jaime (2004-06-18)
    This paper investigates how people return to information in a dynamic information environment. For example, a person might want to return to Web content via a link encountered earlier on a Web page, only to learn that the ...
  • Vutukuru, Mythili; Valiant, Paul; Kopparty, Swastik; Balakrishnan, Hari (2005-08-03)
    The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the current inter domain routing protocol in the Internet, has two modes of operation: eBGP (External BGP), used to exchange routing information between autonomous systems, and iBGP ...
  • Cowling, James; Myers, Daniel; Liskov, Barbara; Rodrigues, Rodrigo; Shrira, Liuba (2007-02-12)
    There are currently two approaches to providing Byzantine-fault-tolerant state machine replication: a replica-based approach, e.g., BFT, that uses communication between replicas to agree on a proposed ordering of requests, ...
  • Wolf, Florian; Poggio, Tomaso; Sinha, Pawan (2006-08-09)
    Humans are remarkably adept at classifying text documents into cate-gories. For instance, while reading a news story, we are rapidly able to assess whether it belongs to the domain of finance, politics or sports. Automating ...
  • Peters, Stephen; Look, Gary; Quigley, Kevin; Shrobe, Howard; Gajos, Krzysztof (2006-03-01)
    We are building a new communication model and discoverysystem which will allow agent-based intelligent spacesto interact with one another. This new infrastructure layer,called Hyperglue, coordinates agent actions at a ...
  • Platt, Robert, Jr.; Kaelbling, Leslie; Lozano-Perez, Tomas; Tedrake, Russ (2011-08-27)
    We consider the partially observable control problem where it is potentially necessary to perform complex information-gathering operations in order to localize state. One approach to solving these problems is to create ...
  • Uzuner, Ozlem (2005-11-18)
    This thesis presents a technology to complement taxation-based policy proposals aimed at addressing the digital copyright problem. Theapproach presented facilitates identification of intellectual propertyusing expression ...
  • Milch, Brian; Koller, Daphne (2008-05-12)
    In some multi-agent scenarios, identifying observations that an agent can safely ignore reduces exponentially the size of the agent's strategy space and hence the time required to find a Nash equilibrium. We consider games ...
  • Katabi, Dina; Gollakota, Shyamnath (2010-06-07)
    Wireless is inherently less secure than wired networks because of its broadcast nature. Attacks that simply snoop on the wireless medium successfully defeat the security of even 802.11 networks using the most recent security ...
