  • Hoffmann, Henry; Maggio, Martina; Santambrogio, Marco D.; Leva, Alberto; Agarwal, Anant (2010-10-13)
    As the complexity of computing systems increases, application programmers must be experts in their application domain and have the systems knowledge required to address the problems that arise from parallelism, power, ...
  • Hoffmann, Henry; Maggio, Martina; Santambrogio, Marco D.; Leva, Alberto; Agarwal, Anant (2011-03-24)
    This paper presents SEEC, a self-aware programming model, designed to reduce programming effort in modern multicore systems. In the SEEC model, application programmers specify application goals and progress, while systems ...
  • Hoffmann, Henry; Maggio, Martina; Santambrogio, Marco D.; Leva, Alberto; Agarwal, Anant (2011-11-07)
    Modern systems require applications to balance competing goals, e.g. achieving high performance and low power. Achieving this balance places an unrealistic burden on application programmers who must understand the power ...
  • Dodoo, Nii; Lin, Lee; Ernst, Michael D. (2003-07-21)
    This research proposes and evaluates techniques for selectingpredicates for conditional program properties—thatis, implications such as p ) q whose consequent must betrue whenever the predicate is true. Conditional ...
  • Wolf, Lior; Shashua, Amnon; Mukherjee, Sayan (2004-01-27)
    Array technologies have made it possible to record simultaneouslythe expression pattern of thousands of genes. A fundamental problemin the analysis of gene expression data is the identification ofhighly relevant genes that ...
  • Amarasinghe, Saman; Rabbah, Rodric; Larsen, Samuel (2009-12-18)
    Multimedia extensions are nearly ubiquitous in today's general-purpose processors. These extensions consist primarily of a set of short-vector instructions that apply the same opcode to a vector of operands. Vector ...
  • Kreiman, Gabriel; Hung, Chou; Poggio, Tomaso; DiCarlo, James (2004-09-21)
    While single neurons in inferior temporal (IT) cortex show differential responses to distinct complex stimuli, little is known about the responses of populations of neurons in IT. We recorded single electrode data, including ...
  • Shrobe, Howard; Laddaga, Robert; Balzer, Robert; Goldman, Neil; Wile, Dave; Tallis, Marcelo; Hollebeek, Tim; Egyed, Alexander (2007-04-10)
    Information systems form the backbones of the critical infrastructures of modern societies. Unfortunately, these systems are highly vulnerable to attacks that can result in enormous damage. Furthermore, traditional approaches ...
  • Lynch, Nancy; Lahiani, Limor; Dolev, Shlomi; Nolte, Tina (2009-01-28)
    We present a self-stabilizing algorithm for routing messages between arbitrary pairs of nodes in a mobile ad hoc network. Our algorithm assumes the availability of a reliable GPS service, which supplies mobile nodes with ...
  • Dolev, Shlomi; Lahiani, Limor; Lynch, Nancy; Nolte, Tina (2005-08-11)
    We present simple algorithms for achieving self-stabilizing locationmanagement and routing in mobile ad-hoc networks. While mobile clients maybe susceptible to corruption and stopping failures, mobile networks areoften ...
  • Torres-Jara, Eduardo (2007-03-02)
    This thesis presents an effective alternative to the traditionalapproach to robotic manipulation. In our approach, manipulation ismainly guided by tactile feedback as opposed to vision. Themotivation comes from the fact ...
  • Masiello, Elizabeth (2006-01-11)
    The sixteen-bit well-known port number is often overlooked as a network identifier in Internet communications. Its purpose at the most fundamental level is only to demultiplex flows of traffic. Several unintended uses of ...
  • Lam, Patrick; Zee, Karen; Kuncak, Viktor; Rinard, Martin (2007-10-31)
    Typestate systems allow the type of an object to change during its lifetime in the computation. Unlike standard type systems, they can enforce safety properties that depend on changing object states. We present a new, ...
  • Adelson, Edward H.; Torralba, Antonio; Fleming, Roland W. (2009-10-22)
  • Cadieu, Charles; Kouh, Minjoon; Riesenhuber, Maximilian; Poggio, Tomaso (2004-11-12)
    The computational processes in the intermediate stages of the ventral pathway responsible for visual object recognition are not well understood. A recent physiological study by A. Pasupathy and C. Connor in intermediate ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Murphy, Kevin P.; Freeman, William T. (2004-04-14)
    We consider the problem of detecting a large number of different classes of objects in cluttered scenes. Traditional approaches require applying a battery of different classifiers to the image, at multiple locations and ...
  • Freeman, William T.; Torralba, Antonio; Yuen, Jenny; Liu, Ce (2010-05-08)
    While image alignment has been studied in different areas of computer vision for decades, aligning images depicting different scenes remains a challenging problem. Analogous to optical flow where an image is aligned to its ...
  • Kjolstad, Fredrik; Kamil, Shoaib; Ragan-Kelley, Jonathan; Levin, David I.W.; Sueda, Shinjiro; Chen, Desai; Vouga, Etienne; Kaufman, Danny M.; Kanwar, Gurtej; Matusik, Wojciech; Amarasinghe, Saman (2015-05-26)
    Using existing programming tools, writing high-performance simulation code is labor intensive and requires sacrificing readability and portability. The alternative is to prototype simulations in a high-level language like ...
  • Taylor, Christopher J. (2005-05-31)
    In this thesis we present LaSLAT, a sensor network algorithm thatsimultaneously localizes sensors, calibrates sensing hardware, andtracks unconstrained moving targets using only range measurementsbetween the sensors and ...
  • Taylor, Christopher; Rahimi, Ali; Bachrach, Jonathan; Shrobe, Howard (2005-04-26)
    We introduce Simultaneous Localization and Tracking (SLAT), the problem of tracking a target in a sensor network while simultaneously localizing and calibrating the nodes of the network. Our proposed solution, LaSLAT, ...
