  • Shelton, Christian R. (2001-03-20)
    We present a new method for estimating the expected return of a POMDP from experience. The estimator does not assume any knowle ge of the POMDP and allows the experience to be gathered with an arbitrary set of policies. ...
  • Barter, C.J. (1982-09-01)
    Message policy is defined to be the description of the disposition of messages of a single type, when received by a group of processes. Group policy applies to all the processes of a group, but for a single message ...
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1966-05-01)
    A collection of programs tries to recognize, which one more successfully than its predecessor, 3-dimensional parallelepipeds (solids limited by 6 planes, parallel two-by-two), using as data 2-dimensional idealized projections. ...

    We consider the non-uniform multicommodity buy-at-bulknetworkdesign problem. In this problem we are given a graph $G(V,E)$withtwo cost functions on the edges, a buy cost $b:E\longrightarrow \RR^+$and a rent cost$r:E\long ...
  • POLYSEG 
    Griffith, Arnold K. (1967-04-01)
    POLYSEG takes as input a list of dotted pairs of numbers. These pairs are assumed to be the co-ordinates of adjacent points along a single closed line. It is further assumed that the x and y co-ordinates of successive ...
  • Siegel, David M. (1991-05-01)
    This report explores methods for determining the pose of a grasped object using only limited sensor information. The problem of pose determination is to find the position of an object relative to the hand. The information ...
  • Beymer, David (1996-03-28)
    The problem of automatic face recognition is to visually identify a person in an input image. This task is performed by matching the input face against the faces of known people in a database of faces. Most existing ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-03)
    The appearance of a surface depends dramatically on how it is illuminated. In order to interpret properly satellite and aerial imagery, it is necessary to know the position of the sun in the sky. This is particularly ...
  • Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio; Pass, Rafael (2014-06-09)
    We consider rationality and rationalizability for normal-form games of incomplete information in which the players have possibilistic beliefs about their opponents. In this setting, we prove that the strategies compatible ...

    We present PowerDial, a system for dynamically adapting application behavior to execute successfully in the face of load and power fluctuations. PowerDial transforms static configuration parameters into dynamic knobs that ...
  • Waters, Richard C. (1984-12-01)
    The PP system provides an efficient implementation of the Common Lisp pretty printing function PPRINT. In addition, PP goes beyond ordinary pretty printers by providing mechanisms which allow the user to control the ...
  • Jamieson, Kyle; Balakrishnan, Hari (2007-02-02)
    Bit errors occur over wireless channels when the signal isn't strongenough to overcome the effects of interference and noise. Currentwireless protocols may use forward error correction (FEC) to correct forsome (small) ...
  • Wang, Robert; Paris, Sylvain; Popovic, Jovan (2010-09-10)
    Motion capture systems have been widely used for high quality content creation and virtual reality but are rarely used in consumer applications due to their price and setup cost. In this paper, we propose a motion capture ...
  • Li, Zhaoping (1998-06-30)
    Stimuli outside classical receptive fields have been shown to exert significant influence over the activities of neurons in primary visual cortexWe propose that contextual influences are used for pre-attentive visual ...
  • Ucko, Aaron Mark (2001-05-01)
    I have added support for predicate dispatching, a powerful generalization of other dispatching mechanisms, to the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS). To demonstrate its utility, I used predicate dispatching to enhance Weyl, ...
  • McCamant, Stephen; Ernst, Michael D. (2004-03-30)
    This report presents a new, automatic technique to assess whether replacing a component of a softwaresystem by a purportedly compatible component may change the behavior of the system. The techniqueoperates before integrating ...
  • Hug, Caleb W. (2006-08-30)
    Using artificial intelligence to assist physicians in patient care has received sustained interest over the past several decades. Recently, with automated systems at most bedsides, the amount of patient information collected ...
  • Stephenson, Mark; Amarasinghe, Saman (2004-03-22)
    In order to deliver the promise of MooreÂ’s Law to the enduser, compilers must make decisions that are intimately tiedto a specific target architecture. As engineers add architecturalfeatures to increase performance, systems ...
  • Yeo, Gene; Van Nostrand, Eric; Holste, Dirk; Poggio, Tomaso; Burge, Christopher (2004-09-30)
    Alternative pre-messenger RNA splicing affects a majority of human genes and plays important roles in development and disease. Alternative splicing (AS) events conserved since the divergence of human and mouse are likely ...
