  • 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 ...
  • Rosenberg, Steven (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-11-15)
    Some researchers, notably Schank and Abelson, (1975) have argued for the existence of large numbers of scripts as a representation for complex events. This paper adopts a different viewpoint. I consider complex events to ...
  • Radul, Alexey (2007-10-22)
    Reasoning with probabilistic models is a widespread andsuccessful technique in areas ranging from computer vision, to naturallanguage processing, to bioinformatics. Currently, these reasoningsystems are either coded from ...
  • Davis, Randall (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-01)
    On June 24, 1981 twenty-five participants from organizations around the country gathered in MIT's Endicott House for the Second Annual Workshop on Distributed AI. The three-day workshop was designed as an informal meeting, ...
  • Davis, Randall (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1980-09)
    On June 9-11, 22 people gathered at Endicott House for the first workshop on the newly emerging topic of Distributed AI. They came with a wide range of views on the topic, and indeed a wide range of views of what precisely ...
  • Felzenszwalb, Pedro F. (2003-08-08)
    We present a set of techniques that can be used to represent anddetect shapes in images. Our methods revolve around a particularshape representation based on the description of objects usingtriangulated polygons. This ...

  • Marr, David; Vaina, Lucia (1980-10-01)
    The problems posed by the representation and recognition of the movements of 3-D shapes are analyzed. A representation is proposed for the movements of shapes that lie within the scope of Marr & Nishihara's (1978) 3-D ...
  • Marr, D.; Nishihara, H.K. (1976-08-01)
    A method is given for representing 3-D shapes. It is based on a hierarchy of stick figures (called 3-D models), where each stick corresponds to an axis in the shape's generalized cone representation. Although the ...
  • Marr, D.; Nishihara, H.K. (1977-05-01)
    The human visual process can be studied by examining the computational problems associated with deriving useful information from retinal images. In this paper, we apply this approach to the problem of representing ...
