  • Beal, Jacob (2007-08-23)
    Human intelligence is a product of cooperation among many different specialists. Much of this cooperation must be learned, but we do not yet have a mechanism that explains how this might happen for the "high-level" agile ...
  • Stamatoiu, Oana L. (2004-05-18)
    If we are to understand how we can build machines capable of broadpurpose learning and reasoning, we must first aim to build systemsthat can represent, acquire, and reason about the kinds of commonsenseknowledge that we ...
  • Masquelier, Timothee; Serre, Thomas; Thorpe, Simon; Poggio, Tomaso (2007-12-26)
    One of the most striking feature of the cortex is its ability to wire itself. Understanding how the visual cortex wires up through development and how visual experience refines connections into adulthood is a key question ...
  • Beal, Jacob (2005-04-13)
    Examples are a powerful tool for teaching both humans and computers.In order to learn from examples, however, a student must first extractthe examples from its stream of perception. Snapshot learning is ageneral approach ...
  • Leibo, Joel Z; Mutch, Jim; Rosasco, Lorenzo; Ullman, Shimon; Poggio, Tomaso (2010-12-30)
    Invariance to various transformations is key to object recognition but existing definitions of invariance are somewhat confusing while discussions of invariance are often confused. In this report, we provide an operational ...
  • Aycinena, Meg; Kaelbling, Leslie Pack; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (2008-02-25)
    Many object recognition systems are limited by their inability to share common parts or structure among related object classes. This capability is desirable because it allows information about parts and relationships in ...
  • Ross, Michael G.; Kaelbling, Leslie Pack (2003-09-08)
    This memo describes the initial results of a project to create aself-supervised algorithm for learning object segmentation from videodata. Developmental psychology and computational experience havedemonstrated that the ...
  • Wang, Xiaogang; Tieu, Kinh; Grimson, Eric (2006-02-10)
    In this paper, we describe an unsupervised learning framework to segment a scene into semantic regions and to build semantic scene models from long-term observations of moving objects in the scene. First, we introduce two ...
  • Banerjee, Ashis Gopal; Roy, Nicholas (2010-09-18)
    In many optimization problems, similar linear programming (LP) problems occur in the nodes of the branch and bound trees that are used to solve integer (mixed or pure, deterministic or stochastic) programming problems. ...
  • Das, Sanmay (2005-10-07)
    This paper introduces algorithms for learning how to trade usinginsider (superior) information in Kyle's model of financial markets.Prior results in finance theory relied on the insider having perfectknowledge of the ...
  • Wolf, Lior (2006-05-16)
    In Quantum Mechanics the transition from a deterministic descriptionto a probabilistic one is done using a simple rule termed the Bornrule. This rule states that the probability of an outcome ($a$)given a state ($\Psi$) ...
  • Srebro, Nathan (2004-11-22)
    Matrices that can be factored into a product of two simpler matricescan serve as a useful and often natural model in the analysis oftabulated or high-dimensional data. Models based on matrixfactorization (Factor Analysis, ...
  • Monteleoni, Claire E. (2006-09-01)
    Many practical problems such as forecasting, real-time decisionmaking, streaming data applications, and resource-constrainedlearning, can be modeled as learning with online constraints. Thisthesis is concerned with analyzing ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso (2012-05-31)
    I discuss the "levels of understanding" framework described in Marr's Vision and propose a revised and updated version of it to capture the changes in computation and neuroscience over the last 30 years.
  • Nahnsen, Thade; Uzuner, Ozlem; Katz, Boris (2005-05-19)
    We present a system to determine content similarity of documents. More specifically, our goal is to identify book chapters that are translations of the same original chapter; this task requires identification of not only ...
  • Lee, John J. (2008-04-07)
    LIBPMK is a C++ implementation of Grauman and Darrell's pyramid match algorithm. This toolkit provides a flexible framework with which developers can quickly match sets of image features and run experiments. LIBPMK provides ...
  • Shim, Keun Sup; Cho, Myong Hyon; Lis, Mieszko; Khan, Omer; Devadas, Srinivas (2011-05-02)
    Directory-based cache coherence is a popular mechanism for chip multiprocessors and multicores. The directory protocol, however, requires multicast for invalidation messages and the collection of acknowledgement messages, ...
  • Moore, David; Olson, Edwin; Huang, Albert (2009-09-02)
    We describe the Lightweight Communications and Marshalling (LCM) library for message passing and data marshalling. The primary goal of LCM is to simplify the development of low-latency message passing systems, targeted at ...
  • Chockler, Gregory; Malkhi, Dahlia (2004-04-22)
    We propose light-weight lease primitives to leverage fault-tolerant coordination among clients accessing a shared storage infrastructure (such as network attached disks or storage servers). In our approach, leases are ...
