  • 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, ...
  • Flynn, A. M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-06)
    A new concept in mobile robots is proposed, namely that of a gnat-sized autonomous robot with on-board sensors, brains, actuators and power supplies, all fabricated on a single piece of silicon. Recent breakthroughs in ...
  • Beeler, Michael (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-05)
    The programs SNAP and ZSLAVE are components of a new grey scale display system. The object is to produce photographs, from a computer display, which have grey scale resolution comparable to that of a the visual input devices ...
  • Little, Jim (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1986-04-14)
    The image display tool GROK provides a facility for displaying images on the black-and-white screen of a Symbolics 3600 monitor. It allows display of images and their manipulation through a special window it manages. Images ...
  • Braunegg, David J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1989-03)
    This cookbook contains recipes prepared for the GSL (Graduate Student Lunch) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
  • Beeler, Michael; Cohen, Joseph D.; White, John L. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-01)
    This memo describes two GT40 programs: URUG, an octal micro-debugger: and VT07, a Datapoint simulator and general display package. There is also a description of the MITAI LISP display slave, and how it uses VT07 as a ...
  • Hewitt, Carl; Attardi, Giuseppe (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1980-12)
    In this paper we survey the current state of the art on fundamental aspects of concurrent systems. We discuss the notion of concurrency and discuss a model of computation which unifies the lambda calculus model and the ...
  • Stacy, Christopher C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-01-27)
    It is said that it is not wise to dabble in the Arts without care and caution, for the spell is at once subtle and dangerous: Look herein! For if you read carefully and closely, you can incant a Word of Magic, and the ...
  • Speckert, Glen (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-07)
    This paper describes a simple method of converting visual coordinates to arm coordinates which does not require knowledge of the position of the camera(s). Comparisons are made to other methods and two camera, three ...
  • Shirai, Yoshiaki (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-06)
    Recognition of polyhedra by a heterarchical program is presented. The program is based on the strategy of recognizing objects step by step, at each time making use of the previous results. At each stage, the most obvious ...
  • Winston, Patrick H. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1971-03)
  • Nishihara, H. K.; Poggio, T. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-04)
    Successful fusion of random-line stereograms with breaks in the vernier acuity range has been interpreted to suggest that the interpolation process underlying hyperacuity is parallel and preliminary to stereomatching. In ...
  • Dunlavey, Michael R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-05)
    Organization of knowledge requires the flexible use of hierarchy in descriptions. This memo attempts to catalog the issues related to recognizing and executing such descriptions, drawing examples primarily from the blocks world.
  • Doyle, Jon (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-11)
    This paper discusses a number of problems faced in communicating expertise and common sense to a computer, and the approaches taken by several current knowledge representation languages towards solving these problems. The ...
  • 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 ...
