  • Torre, V.; Poggio, T. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-03)
    We present several results characterizing two differential operators used for edge detection: the Laplacian and the second directional derivative along the gradient. In particular, (a)we give conditions for coincidence of ...
  • Blanchard, David C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-08)
    This paper describes a scheme for providing low-level control of a multi-link serial manipulator. The goal was to achieve adaptive behavior without making assumptions about the environment.
  • Rich, Charles; Waters, Richard C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1981-12)
    Simplifying assumptions — everyone uses them but no one's programming tool explicitly supports them. In programming, as in other kinds of engineering design, simplifying assumptions are an important method for dealing with ...
  • Rosenberg, Steven T. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-08-17)
    An essential step in understanding connected discourse is the ability to link the meanings of successive sentences together. Given a growing database to which new sentence meanings must be linked, which out of many possible ...
  • Haase, Ken (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-03)
    The emergence in 1976 of Doug Lenat's mathematical discovery program AM [Len76] [Len82a] was met with suprise and controversy; AM's performance seemed to bring the dream of super-intelligent machines to our doorstep, with ...
  • Fahlman, Scott E. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-09)
    This paper briefly discusses the following questions: What are the benefits of special-purpose languages? When is a field ready for such a language? Are any parts of our current vision research ready?
  • Amsterdam, Jonathan (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1990-05)
    I describe an iteration macro for Common Lisp that is clear, efficient, extensible, and in excellent taste.
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-10)
    In order to be able to design a control system for high-speed control of mechanical manipulators, it is necessary to understand properly their dynamics. Here we present an analysis of a detailed model of a three-link device ...
  • Hillis, D. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-01)
    We have developed an efficient Lagrangian formulation of manipulators with small numbers of degrees of freedom. The efficiency derives from the lack of velocities, accelerations, and generalized forces. The number of ...
  • Donald, Bruce R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1984-08)
    We describe a simple geometric modelling system called Eight which supports interactive creation, editing, and display of three-dimensional polyhedral solids. Perspective views of a polyhedral environment may be generated, ...
  • Zelinka, Linda M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-03)
    Large programs undergo many changes before they run in a satisfactory manner. For many large programs, modification histories are kept which record every change that is made to the program. By studying these records, ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-05)
  • Miller, Mark L. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-01-16)
    A focus on planning and debugging procedures underlies the enhanced proficiency of recent programs which solve problems and acquire new skills. By describing complex procedures as constituents of evolutionary sequences of ...
  • Inman, Jeff (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1991-08-05)
    We re-examine the evolutionary stability of the tit-for-tat (tft) strategy in the context of the iterated prisoner's dilemma, as introduced by Axelrod and Hamilton. This environment involves a mixture of populations of ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-05)
    Message passing is directed toward the production of programs that are intended to execute efficiently in a computing environment with a large number of processors. The paradigm attempts to address the computational issues ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1980-12)
    The problem of producing a colored image from a colored original is analyzed. Conditions are determined for the production of an image, in which the colors cannot be distinguished from those in the original by a human ...
  • Pitman, Kent M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-02)
    Frequently, it is convenient to describe a program in terms of the normal situations in which it will be used, even if such a description does not describe the its complete behavior in all circumstances. This paper surveys ...
  • Lefelhocz, Paul M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1990-05)
    The Requirements Apprentice (RA) is a demonstration system that assists a human analyst in the requirements-acquisition phase of the software-development process. By applying the RA to another example it has been possible ...
  • Braunegg, David J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-11)
    3-D Smoothed Local Symmetries (3-D SLS's) are presented as a representation for three-dimensional shapes. 3-D SLS's make explicit the perceptually salient features of 3-D objects and are especially suited to representing ...
  • Bruss, Anna R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-05)
    This paper describes a method for finding such topographical features as ridges and valleys in a given terrain. Contour lines are used to obtain the desired result.
