  • Baker, Henry G.; Hewitt, Carl (1977-12-01)
    This paper investigates some problems associated with an expression evaluation order that we call "future" order, which is different from call-by-name, call-by-value, and call-by-need. In future order evaluation, an ...
  • Grzywacz, Norberto M.; Hildreth, Ellen C. (1985-10-01)
    Perceptual studies suggest that the visual system uses the "rigidity" assumption to recover three dimensional structures from motion. Ullman (1984) recently proposed a computational scheme, the incremental rigidity ...
  • Breuel, Thomas M. (1990-08-01)
    This paper describes a new approach to the model base indexing stage of visual object recognition. Fast model base indexing of 3D objects is achieved by accessing a database of encoded 2D views of the objects using a ...
  • Riesenhuber, Maximilian; Poggio, Tomaso (2000-05-01)
    Most psychophysical studies of object recognition have focussed on the recognition and representation of individual objects subjects had previously explicitely been trained on. Correspondingly, modeling studies have often ...
  • Meyer, Garry S. (1972-08-01)
    How can we construct a program that will understand stories that children would understand? By understand we mean the ability to answer questions about the story. We are interested here with understanding natural ...
  • Richards, Whitman; Koenderink, Jan J.; Hoffman, D.D. (1985-04-01)
    All plane curves can be described at an abstract level by a sequence of five primitive elemental shapes, called "condons", which capture the sequential relations between the singular points of curvature. The condon ...
  • Grauman, Kristen; Shakhnarovich, Gregory; Darrell, Trevor (2003-04-17)
    We present an image-based approach to infer 3D structure parameters using a probabilistic "shape+structure'' model. The 3D shape of a class of objects may be represented by sets of contours from silhouette views ...
  • Hoffman, D.D. (1980-12-01)
    The human visual system has the ability o utilize motion information to infer the shapes of surfaces. More specifically, we are able to derive descriptions of rigidly rotating smooth surfaces entirely from the orthographic ...
  • Weitzner, Daniel J.; Abelson, Harold; Berners-Lee, Tim; Feigenbaum, Joan; Hendler, James; Sussman, Gerald Jay (2007-06-13)
    Ease of information flow is both the boon and the bane of large-scale, decentralized systems like the World Wide Web. For all the benefits and opportunities brought by the information revolution, with that same revolution ...
  • Niyogi, Partha (1996-09-01)
    This thesis attempts to quantify the amount of information needed to learn certain tasks. The tasks chosen vary from learning functions in a Sobolev space using radial basis function networks to learning grammars in ...
  • Chan, Nicholas; LeBaron, Blake; Lo, Andrew; Poggio, Tomaso (1998-09-01)
    Various studies of asset markets have shown that traders are capable of learning and transmitting information through prices in many situations. In this paper we replace human traders with intelligent software agents ...
  • Cheng, Winnie Wing-Yee (2009-08-27)
    Private and confidential information is increasingly stored online and increasingly being exposed due to human errors as well as malicious attacks. Information leaks threaten confidentiality, lead to lawsuits, damage ...
  • Banks, Edwin Roger (1971-01-01)
    A cellular automaton is an iterative array of very simple identical information processing machines called cells. Each cell can communicate with neighboring cells. At discrete moments of time the cells can change from ...
  • Crick, Francis H.C.; Marr, David C.; Poggio, Tomaso (1980-04-01)
    An outline description is given of the experimental work on the visual acuity and hyperacuity of human beings. The very high resolution achieved in hyperacuity corresponds to a fraction of the spacing between adjacent ...
  • Koch, C.; Poggio, T. (1983-03-01)
    Dendritic spines are small twigs on the dendrites of a very large class of neurons in the central nervous system. There are between 10 (3) and 10 (5) spines per neuron, each one including at least one synapse, i.e. a ...
  • Papert, Seymour A.; Weir, Sylvia (1978-09-01)
    In this proposal we describe a technological step towards the realization of INFORMATION PROSTHETICS. Our primary focus is on using rather than making the technology. Specifically, our goal is to transpose for the use ...
  • Katti, Sachin; Cohen, Jeffrey; Katabi, Dina (2007-02-23)
    This paper proposes a new approach to anonymous communication called information slicing. Typically, anonymizers use onion routing, where a message is encrypted in layers with the public keys of the nodes along the path. ...
  • Robinson, Hugh; Koch, Christof (1984-04-01)
    This proposal addresses some of the biophysical events possibly underlying fast activity-dependent changes in synaptic efficiency. Dendritic spines in the cortex have attracted increased attention over the last years ...
  • Beeler, Michael (1971-08-01)
    The word game, JOTTO, has attracted the interest of several computer programmers over the years, not to mention countless devoted players. Rules are: 1.) Each of 2 players selects a 5-letter English word, or a proper noun, ...
  • Beal, Jacob; Bachrach, Jonathan (2006-03)
    The ability to control emergent phenomena depends on decomposingthem into aspects susceptible to independent engineering. Forspatial self-managing systems, the amorphous-medium abstraction lets youseparate the systemÂ’s ...
