  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-05)
    This is a random collection of facts about radiant and luminous energy. Some of this information may be useful in the design of photo-diode image sensors, in the set-up of lighting for television microscopes and the ...
  • Clinger, Will (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-06)
    Actor-based languages feature extreme concurrency, allow side effects, and specify a form of fairness which permits unbounded nondeterminism. This makes it difficult to provide a satisfactory mathematical foundation for ...
  • Griffith, Arnold K. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971)
    The programs in this set extract, from a raster of intensity values over some scene, a set of points which are adjudged to lie along the boundaries of objects in the scene. Intensities may be obtained directly from the new ...
  • Cohen, Joseph D.; Jarvis, J. Pitts (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-10)
    This memo describes FED, a program used for compiling and inspecting fonts: AST font format, a text format which can be used to create and edit fonts: and KST font format, the binary format used by SCRIMP, TJ6, and PUB.
  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-09)
    This paper describes a set of programs written in LISP that recognize resistors on circuit boards. The approach leans heavily on a thorough examination of the features found in representative intensity arrays and on ...
  • Finin, Tim (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03)
    TC-SKELETON's duty is to help find the dimensions of brick shaped objects by searching for sets of three complete edges, on for each dimension. The program was originally written by Patrick Winston, and then was refined ...
  • Sussman, Gerald Jay (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971-08-03)
    The FINDSPACE problem is that of establishing a volume in space where an object of specified dimensions will fit. The problem seems to have two subproblems: the hypothesis generation problem of finding a likely spot to ...
  • Flynn, Anita M.; Barrett, David S. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1991-02)
    Fine grained robotics is the idea of solving problems utilizing multitudes of very simple machines in place of one large complex entity. Organized in the proper way, simple machines and simple behaviors can lead to emergent ...
  • Rich, Charles; Waters, Richard C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-07)
    There has been a long-standing desire in computer science for a way of collecting and using libraries of standard software components. Unfortunately, there has been only limited success in actually doing this. We believe ...
  • Duffey, Roger DuWayne II (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1980-09)
    A novel compiler strategy for generating high quality code is described. The quality of the code results from reimplementing the program in the target language using knowledge of the program's behavior. The research is a ...
  • Steels, Luc (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-10)
    The paper introduces a language for representing knowledge in a declarative form. With this language it is possible to define knowledge about a certain domain by introducing a number of concepts and by specifying their ...
  • Marr, David (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-08)
    The CNS needs to be understood at four nearly independent levels of description: (1) that at which the nature of a computation is expressed; (2) that at which the algorithms that implement a computation are characterised; ...
  • Freiling, Michael J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-12)
    This paper discusses methods for enhancing the learning abilities of the Winston program, first by representing functional properties of the objects considered, and secondly by embedding individual models in a hierarchically ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-12)
    Details of the kinematics, statics, and dynamics of a particularly simple form of locomotory system are developed to demonstrate the importance of understanding the behavior of the mechanical system interposed between the ...
  • Marill, Thomas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1989-02)
    The problem of three-dimensional vision is generally formulated as the problem of recovering the three-dimensional scene that caused the image. We have previously presented a certain line-drawing and shown that it has the ...
  • Bishop, Peter B. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-09)
    The address space is broken into areas that can be garbage collected separately. An area is analogous to a file on current systems. Each process has a local computation area for its stack and temporary storage that is ...
  • Waltz, David L. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-11)
    The research reported here concerns the principles used to automatically generate three-dimensional representations from line drawings of scenes. The computer programs involved look at scenes which consist of polyhedra and ...
  • Stacy, Christopher C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-09-07)
    This document describes the computing facilities at M.I.T. Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and explains how to get started using them. It is intended as an orientation document for newcomers to the lab, and will be ...
  • Clinger, Will (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-06)
  • Lavin, Mark A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03)
    This paper discusses the visual phenomenon of gloss. It is shown that the perception of this phenomenon derives from two effects (1) that the image reflected by a glossy surface lies in a different plane from the surface, ...
