  • Bawden, Alan (1988-06-01)
    Constructing self-referential systems, such as Brian Smith's 3-Lisp language, is actually more straightforward than you think. Anyone can build an infinite tower of processors (where each processor implements the ...
  • Steinbach, Carl (2002-05-01)
    We describe an adaptive, mid-level approach to the wireless device power management problem. Our approach is based on reinforcement learning, a machine learning framework for autonomous agents. We describe how our ...
  • Peshkin, Leonid (2003-02-14)
    One objective of artificial intelligence is to model the behavior of an intelligent agent interacting with its environment. The environment's transformations can be modeled as a Markov chain, whose state is partially ...
  • Wu, Eugene; Madden, Samuel; Zhang, Yang; Jones, Evan; Curino, Carlo (2010-03-14)
    In this paper, we make the case for â databases as a serviceâ (DaaS), with two target scenarios in mind: (i) consolidation of data management functionality for large organizations and (ii) outsourcing data management ...
  • Gardiol, Natalia Hernandez (2007-12-31)
    This thesis proposes a synthesis of logic and probability for solving stochastic sequential decision-making problems. We address two main questions: How can we take advantage of logical structure to speed up planning in a ...
  • Zucker, Steven W.; Stevens, Kent A.; Sander, Peter T. (1982-05-01)
    The Gestalt studies demonstrated the tendency to visually organize dots on the basis of similarity, proximity, and global properties such as closure, good continuation, and symmetry. The particular organization imposed ...
  • Shashua, Ammon; Navab, Nassir (1994-06-01)
    We propose an affine framework for perspective views, captured by a single extremely simple equation based on a viewer-centered invariant we call "relative affine structure". Via a number of corollaries of our main ...
  • Jarudi, Izzat N.; Sinha, Pawan (2003-03-01)
    The central challenge in face recognition lies in understanding the role different facial features play in our judgments of identity. Notable in this regard are the relative contributions of the internal (eyes, nose and ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (1987-09-01)
    Before corresponding points in images taken with two cameras can be used to recover distances to objects in a scene, one has to determine the position and orientation of one camera relative to the other. This is the ...
  • Nevins, Arthur J. (1974-01-01)
    The splitting of a problem into subproblems often involves the same variable appearing in more than one of the subproblems. This makes these subproblems dependent upon one another since a solution to one may not qualify ...
  • Gennert, Michael A.; Negahdaripour, Shahriar (1987-06-01)
    Optical flow is the apparent (or perceived) motion of image brightness patterns arising from relative motion of objects and observer. Estimation of the optical flow requires the application of two kinds of constraint: ...
  • Misailovic, Sasa; Carbin, Michael; Achour, Sara; Qi, Zichao; Rinard, Martin (2014-01-09)
    Emerging high-performance architectures are anticipated to contain unreliable components (e.g., ALUs) that offer low power consumption at the expense of soft errors. Some applications (such as multimedia processing, machine ...
  • Dennison, Larry R. (1991-10-01)
    This technical report describes a new protocol, the Unique Token Protocol, for reliable message communication. This protocol eliminates the need for end-to-end acknowledgments and minimizes the communication effort ...
  • Cornejo, Alejandro; Lynch, Nancy (2010-09-09)
    Local distributed algorithms can only gather sufficient information to identify local graph traits, that is, properties that hold within the local neighborhood of each node. However, it is frequently the case that global ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1967-03-01)
    The problem is to track the motion of part of a field of view. Let us assume that the scene is a two-dimensional picture in a plane perpendicular to the roll axis. (these simplifying assumptions, of course, are a main ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1968-06-01)
    This serves as a preliminary draft of Deluxe Picture Maintenance System, June, 1963. It is Technical Memorandum No. 1.
  • Boneh, Dan; Mazieres, David; Popa, Raluca Ada (2011-03-30)
    Remote storage of data has become an increasingly attractive and advantageous option, especially due to cloud systems. While encryption protects the data, it does not hide the access pattern to the data. A natural solution ...
  • Wentzlaff, David; Agarwal, Anant; Hoffmann, Henry (2009-05-05)
    This paper presents remote store programming (RSP). This paradigm combines usability and efficiency through the exploitation of a simple hardware mechanism, the remote store, which can easily be added to existing ...
  • Orban, Richard (1970-08-01)
    This paper describes a LISP function, ERASER, to be used in the process of recognizing objects by a computer. It is a pre-processor to a program called SEE which finds whole bodies in a scene. A short description of SEE ...
  • Winston, Patrick H.; Rao, Satayjit (1990-05-01)
    Explanation-based learning occurs when something useful is retained from an explanation, usually an account of how some particular problem can be solved given a sound theory. Many real-world explanations are not based ...
