  • Morrison, Jerry Howard (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-05)
    PLASMA (for PLAnner-like System Modeled on Actors) is a message-passing computer language based on actor semantics. Since every event in the system is the receipt of a message actor by a target actor, a complete history ...
  • Smith, Brian Cantwell (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-11)
    In the summer of 1978 a decision was made to devote a special issue of the SIGART newsletter to the subject of knowledge representation research. To assist in ascertaining the current state of people's thinking on this ...
  • Hollerbach, John (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-07)
    Handwriting is shown to be composed mainly of cup-shaped strokes lasting approximately 200 msec. The strokes are based on a hexagonal pattern, with quantized slopes and lengths. Each side of the hexagon is produced by a ...
  • Chapman, David (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-10)
    This document presumptuously purports to explain how to do research. We give heuristics that may be useful in pickup up specific skills needed for research (reading, writing, programming) and for understanding and enjoying ...
  • Griffith, Arnold K. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971-03)
  • Brotsky, Daniel (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1986-06-09)
    YTEX—pronounced why-TEX or oops-TEX—is a TEX macro package. YTEX provides both an easy-to-use interface for TEX novices and a powerful macro-creation library for TEX programmers. It is this two-tier structure that makes ...
  • Kuipers, Benjamin J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-03)
    This paper presents a visual recognition program in which recognition process is driven by hypotheses about the object being recognized. The hypothesis suggests which features to examine next, refines its predictions based ...
  • Fahlman, Scott E. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-12)
    This paper proposes a new approach to a broad class of recognition problems ranging from medical diagnosis to vision. The features of this approach include a top-down hypothesize-and-test style and the use of a great deal ...
  • Sandewall, Erik (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-01)
    The trend toward larger data bases in A.I. programs makes it desirable to provide program support for the activity of building and maintaining LISP data bases. Many techniques can be drawn from present and proposed systems ...
  • Lee, Jintae (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-08)
    In this paper, an intelligent database management system (DBMS) called IDEME is presented. IDEME is a program that takes as input a task specification and finds a set of methods potentially relevant to solving that task. ...
  • Hewitt, Carl; Baker, Henry G. Jr. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-06)
    This paper investigates some problems associated with an argument evaluation order that we call "future" order, which is different from both call-by-name and call-by-value. In call-by-future, each formal parameter of a ...
  • Binnard, Michael (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1995-02-23)
    This paper describes the injection molding equipment at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab and how to use it. Topic covered include mold design, insert molding, safety, and material properties.
  • Poggio, Tomaso (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-12)
    I outline a project for integrating several early visual modalities based on coupled Markov Random Fields models of the physical processes underlying image formation, such as depth, albedo and orientation of surfaces. The ...
  • Feldman, Yishai A.; Rich, Charles (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-05)
    We have implemented a reasoning system, called BREAD, which includes truth maintenance, equality, and pattern-directed invocation. This paper reports on the solution of two technical problems arising out of the interaction ...
  • Pitman, Kent (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-02)
    In this paper, we discuss the design of a user interface to the Knowledge Based Editor (KBE), a prototype implementation of the Programmer's Apprentice. Although internally quite sophisticated, the KBE hides most of its ...
  • Fahlman, Scott E. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-11)
    This paper is intended as a supplement to AI MEMO 331, "A System for Representing and Using Real-World Knowledge". It is an attempt to redefine and clarify what I now believe the central theme of the research to be. Briefly, ...
  • Steels, Luc (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-11)
    This paper contains an informal and sketchy overview of a new way of thinking about linguistics and linguistic processing known as conceptual grammar. Some ideas are presented on what kind of knowledge is involved in a ...
  • Weinreb, Daniel; Moon, David A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-10-14)
    This document is a draft copy of a portion of the Lisp Machine window system manual. It is being published in this form now to make it available, since the complete window system manual is unlikely to be finished in the ...
  • Griffith, Arnold K. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971-04-02)
    The J%JOIN program creates links between the elements of a set of line segments on the basis of their geometric proximity. According to the value of the third argument, (T or NIL), the program will either place a set of ...
  • Strauss, Nicholas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-07)
    The Jordan Form over field Z[subscript p] of J[superscript p][subscript p]n is diagonal for p > 3 with characteristic polynomial, ϕ(x) = x[superscript 3] - 1, for p prime, n natural number. These matrices have dimension ...
