  • Riesenhuber; Jarudi; Gilad; Sinha (2004-03-05)
    Understanding how the human visual system recognizes objects is one of the key challenges in neuroscience. Inspired by a large body of physiological evidence (Felleman and Van Essen, 1991; Hubel and Wiesel, 1962; Livingstone ...
  • Tan, Cheston; Poggio, Tomaso (2013-03-18)
    Visual recognition is an important ability that is central to many everyday tasks such as reading, navigation and social interaction, and is therefore actively studied in neuroscience, cognitive psychology and artificial ...
  • Ehrmann, Stephen C.; Gilbert, Steven W.; McMartin, Flora; Abelson, Harold; Long, Philip D. (2007-10-20)
    Instruction in higher education must adapt more rapidly to: changes in workforce needs, global issues, advances in disciplines, and resource constraints. The pace of such improvement depends on the speed with which new ...
  • Paris, Sylvain; Hasinoff, Samuel W.; Kautz, Jan; Aubry, Mathieu; Durand, Frédo (2011-11-15)
    Multi-scale manipulations are central to image editing but they are also prone to halos. Achieving artifact-free results requires sophisticated edgeaware techniques and careful parameter tuning. These shortcomings were ...
  • Yeh, Tom; Lee, John J.; Darrell, Trevor (2008-06-10)
    Object localization and classification are important problems incomputer vision. However, in many applications, exhaustive searchover all class labels and image locations is computationallyprohibitive. While several methods ...
  • Grauman, Kristen; Darrell, Trevor (2003-12-05)
    Weighted graph matching is a good way to align a pair of shapesrepresented by a set of descriptive local features; the set ofcorrespondences produced by the minimum cost of matching features fromone shape to the features ...
  • Caponnetto, Andrea; Vito, Ernesto De (2005-04-14)
    We develop a theoretical analysis of generalization performances of regularized least-squares on reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces for supervised learning. We show that the concept of effective dimension of an integral ...
  • Beal, Jacob; Bachrach, Jonathan; Vickery, Dan; Tobenkin, Mark (2008-03)
    We present CRF-Gradient, a self-healing gradient algorithm that provably reconfigures in O(diameter) time. Self-healing gradients are a frequently used building block for distributed self-healing systems, but previous ...
  • Cheng, Tiffany (2010-09-22)
    This thesis demonstrates and evaluates the design, architecture, and implementation of a file location, replication, and distribution system built with the objective of managing information in an Internet network. The ...
  • Cox, Russ; Josephson, William (2005-02-28)
    Vector time pairs are a new method for trackingsynchronization metadata. A vector time pairconsists of two vector times: one tracking filemodification history and one tracking filesynchronization history. Because the ...
  • Kaelbling, Leslie Pack; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (2009-09-12)
    A progress report describing the application of policy gradient and policy search by dynamic programming methods to an aircraft collision avoidance problem inspired by the requirements of next-generation TCAS.
  • Artzi, Shay; Kiezun, Adam; Dolby, Julian; Tip, Frank; Dig, Danny; Paradkar, Amit; Ernst, Michael D. (2008-02-06)
    Web script crashes and malformed dynamically-generated web pages are common errors, and they seriously impact usability of web applications. Currenttools for web-page validation cannot handle the dynamically-generatedpages ...

  • Liben-Nowell, David; Vee, Erik; Zhu, An (2003-11-26)
    In this paper, we present algorithms and lower bounds for the Longest Increasing Subsequence(LIS) and Longest Common Subsequence (LCS) problems in the data streaming model.
  • Artzi, Shay; Ernst, Michael D.; Kiezun, Adam; Pacheco, Carlos; Perkins, Jeff H. (2006-08-31)
    A test input for an object-oriented program typically consists of asequence of method calls that use the API defined by the programunder test. Generating legal test inputs can be challenging because,for some programs, the ...
  • Blackmore, Lars; Williams, Brian (2006-02-28)
    Multiple-Model fault detection is a powerful method for detecting changes, such as faults, in dynamic systems. In many cases, the ability of such a detection scheme to distinguish between possible models for the system ...
  • Edwards, Jonathan (2006-05-22)
    The Subtext project seeks to make programming fundamentally easier by altering the nature of programming languages and tools. This paper defines an operational semantics for an essential subset of the Subtext language. It ...
  • Wentzlaff, David; Gruenwald, Charles, III; Beckmann, Nathan; Belay, Adam; Kasture, Harshad; Modzelewski, Kevin; Youseff, Lamia; Miller, Jason E.; Agarwal, Anant (2011-03-09)
    Current monolithic operating systems are designed for uniprocessor systems, and their architecture reflects this. The rise of multicore and cloud computing is drastically changing the tradeoffs in operating system design. ...
  • Conrad, Patrick R; Williams, Brian C (2011-01-15)
    Dynamic plan execution strategies allow an autonomous agent to respond to uncertainties, while improving robustness and reducing the need for an overly conservative plan. Executives have improved robustness by expanding ...
  • Carli, Roberto (2008-06-16)
    The flexible MIPS soft processor architecture borrows selected technologies from high-performance computing to deliver a modular, highly customizable CPU targeted towards FPGA implementations for embedded systems; the ...
