  • Radul, Alexey (2009-11-03)
    I propose a shift in the foundations of computation. Practically all ideas of general-purpose computation today are founded either on execution of sequences of atomic instructions, i.e., assembly languages, or on evaluation ...
  • Kleer, Johan de; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1978-09-01)
    A major component in the process of design is synthesis, the determination of the parameters of the parts of a network given desiderata for the behavior of the network as a whole. Traditional automated synthesis ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Freeman, William T. (2002-12-01)
    In low-level vision, the representation of scene properties such as shape, albedo, etc., are very high dimensional as they have to describe complicated structures. The approach proposed here is to let the image itself ...
  • Pontil, Massimiliano; Verri, Alessandro (1997-08-01)
    Support Vector Machines (SVMs) perform pattern recognition between two point classes by finding a decision surface determined by certain points of the training set, termed Support Vectors (SV). This surface, which in some ...
  • Smith, Brian Cantwell (1978-11-01)
    The studies of anatomy and physiology are fundamental ingredients of medical education. This paper identifies six ways in which such functional knowledge serves as the underpinnings for general medical reasoning, and ...
  • Winett, Joel (1963-06-01)
    A time-sharing system for the 7090 computer is being developed at the M.I.T. Computation Center whereby many users can communicate simultaneously with the computer through individual consoles. In the time-sharing ...
  • Hart, Timothy P. (1963-09-01)
    During the last half of the nineteenth century the need for formal methods of proof became evident to mathematicians who were making such confidence-shaking discoveries as non-Euclidean geometry. The demand is not to be ...
  • Kuper, Ron I. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-01)
    There are many ways to find bugs in programs. For example, observed input and output values can be compared to predicted values. An execution trace can be examined to locate errors in control flow. The utility of these and ...
  • Forbus, Kenneth D. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1981-07)
    Our common sense views of physics are the first coin in our intellectual capital; understanding precisely what they contain could be very important both for understanding ourselves and for making machines more like us. ...
  • Batali, John (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-04)
    A theory of rational action can be used to determine the right action to perform in a situation. I will develop a theory of rational action in which an agent has access to an explicit theory of rationality. The agent makes ...
  • Shapiro, Daniel G. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1980-07)
    This paper proposes an interactive debugging aid that exhibits a deep understanding of a narrow class of bugs. This system, called Sniffer, will be able to find and identify errors, and explain them in terms which are ...
  • Minsky, Marvin; Papert, Seymour (1973-01-01)
    This proposal discusses practical aspects of our project to produce a replicable research tool for development of real-world computer-controlled hand-eye systems. If this proposal is read out of context, it will not seem ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1972-10-01)
    The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory proposes to continue its work on a group of closely interconnected projects, all bearing on questions about how to make computers able to use more sophisticated kinds of knowledge ...
  • Minsky, Marvin; Papert, Seymour (1973-06-01)
    The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory proposes to continue its work on a group of closely interconnected projects, all bearing on questions about how to make computers able to use more sophisticated kinds of knowledge ...
  • Minsky, Marvin; Papert, Seymour (1970-12-01)
    The MIT Artificial Intelligence Project has a variety of goals all bound together by search for principles of intelligent behavior. Among our immediate goals are to develop systems with practical applications for: ...
  • Minsky, Marvin; Papert, Seymour (1971-10-01)
    The activities of the Artificial Intelligence laboratory can be viewed under three main aspects; (1) Artificial Intelligence- understanding the principles of making intelligent machines along the lines discusses in ...
  • Winston, P.; Horn, B.K.P.; Sussman, G.J. (1973-09-01)
    The results of a decade of work in Artificial Intelligence have brought us to the threshold of a new phase of knowledge-based programming -- in which we can design computer systems that (1) react reasonably to significantly ...
  • Bloom, Burton H. (1963-02-01)
    The problem of devising a mechanical procedure for playing chess is fundamentally the problem of searching the very large move-tree associated with a chess position. This tree-searching problem is representative of a large ...
  • Papert, Seymour A. (1976-06-01)
    This proposal to the NSF describes a new phase of research planned in LOGO. Previous phases have concentrated on developing a conceptual superstructure (theories and teaching methods) and a material infra-structure ...
  • Winston, Patrick H. (1976-05-01)
    This is the substance of a proposal submitted in June, 1975, for research in the areas of large data bases and intelligent terminals, applications of machine vision and manipulation, basic studies in Artificial ...
