  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2009.)
    Modeling frameworks such as Probabilistic I/O Automata (PIOA) and Markov Decision Processes permit both probabilistic and nondeterministic choices. In order to use these frameworks to express claims about probabilities of ...
  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2006-03-31)
    In the Probabilistic I/O Automata (PIOA) framework, nondeterministicchoices are resolved using perfect-information schedulers,which are similar to history-dependent policies for Markov decision processes(MDPs). These ...

  • Leonard, John; Barrett, David; How, Jonathan; Teller, Seth; Antone, Matt; Campbell, Stefan; Epstein, Alex; Fiore, Gaston; Fletcher, Luke; Frazzoli, Emilio; Huang, Albert; Jones, Troy; Koch, Olivier; Kuwata, Yoshiaki; Mahelona, Keoni; Moore, David; Moyer, Katy; Olson, Edwin; Peters, Steven; Sanders, Chris; Teo, Justin; Walter, Matthew (2007-12-14)
    This technical report describes Team MIT’s approach to theDARPA Urban Challenge. We have developed a novel strategy forusing many inexpensive sensors, mounted on the vehicle periphery,and calibrated with a new cross-­modal ...
  • Johannsson, Hordur; Kaess, Michael; Fallon, Maurice; Leonard, John J. (2012-05-25)
    In this paper, we demonstrate a system for temporally scalable visual SLAM using a reduced pose graph representation. Unlike previous visual SLAM approaches that use keyframes, our approach continually uses new measurements ...
  • Jon, Doyle; Kohane, Isaac; Long, William; Szolovits, Peter (2004-05-18)
    This report describes the aims, functions, and organization of the MAITAsystem for knowledge-based construction, adaptation, and control of networks of monitoringprocesses.
  • Torlak, Emina; Jackson, Daniel (2006-09-29)
    The key design challenges in the construction of a SAT-based relational engine are described, and novel techniques are proposed to address them. An efficient engine must have a mechanism for specifying partial solutions, ...
  • Benjamin, Michael R. (2004-09-27)
    The interval programming model (IvP) is a mathematical programmingmodel for representing and solving multi-objective optimizationproblems. The central characteristic of the model is the use ofpiecewise linearly defined ...
  • Kumar, Ravi; Liben-Nowell, David; Novak, Jasmine; Raghavan, Prabhakar; Tomkins, Andrew (2005-06-03)
    We introduce a formal model for geographic social networks, and introduce the notion of rank-based friendship, in which the probability that a person v is a friend of a person u is inversely proportional to the number of ...
  • Saff, David; Boshernitsan, Marat; Ernst, Michael D. (2008-01-14)
    Automated testing during development helps ensure that software works according to the test suite. Traditional test suites verify a few well-picked scenarios or example inputs. However, such example-based testing does not ...
  • Perry, John C. (2007-06-12)
    A longstanding controversy in philosophy is whether decision-making isgoverned by reason or emotion. I study the role of physiologicalresponses in the decision-making process within the realm of financialmarkets, where ...
  • Gilbert, Seth; Malewicz, Grzegorz (2004-10-29)
    Quorum systems are commonly used to maintain the consistency of replicated data in adistributed system. Much research has been devoted to developing quorum systems with good theoreticalproperties, such as fault tolerance ...
  • Hajiaghayi, MohammadTaghi; Sorkin, Gregory B. (2003-11-20)
    We prove that a random 3-SAT instance with clause-to-variable densityless than 3.52 is satisfiable with high probability.The proof comes through an algorithm which selects (and sets) a variabledepending on its degree and ...
  • Lepinski, Matt; Izmalkov, Sergei (2005-02-02)
    We show that any function F can be securely evaluated by a protocolwith ballots and a ballot box. That is, N mutually suspicious players,each player possessing a secret input, can use ballots and a ballotbox to jointly ...
  • Radul, Alexey (2005)
    I devised and implemented a method for constructing regular andsemiregular geometric objects in n-dimensional Euclidean space.Given a finite reflection group (a Coxeter group) G, there is a standard way to give G a group ...
  • Kaynor, Dilsun K.; Lynch, Nancy; Segala, Roberto; Vaandrager, Frits (2005-03-02)
    This monograph presents the Timed Input/Output Automaton (TIOA) modeling framework, a basic mathematical framework to support description and analysis of timed systems.
  • Kaynar, Dilsun K.; Lynch, Nancy; Segala, Roberto; Vaandrager, Frits (2003-08-27)
    Revised version -- November 23, 2004.This paper presents the Timed Input/Output Automaton (TIOA) modeling framework, a basic mathematical framework to support description and analysis of timed systems.
  • Tan, Cheston; Leibo, Joel Z; Poggio, Tomaso (2012)
    In recent years, scientific and technological advances have produced artificial systems that have matched or surpassed human capabilities in narrow domains such as face detection and optical character recognition. However, ...
  • Shrobe, Howard; Knight, Thomas; Hon, Andre de (2007-05-30)
    The last 20 years have led to unprecedented improvements in chipdensity and system performance fueled mainly by Moore's Law. Duringthe same time, system and application software have bloated, leadingto unmanageable ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Fergus, Rob; Freeman, William T. (2007-04-23)
    The human visual system is remarkably tolerant to degradations in image resolution: in a scene recognition task, human performance is similar whether $32 \times 32$ color images or multi-mega pixel images are used. With ...
