  • 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 ...

    We present a set of techniques that can be used to represent and detect shapes in images. Our methods revolve around a particular shape representation based on the description of objects using triangulated 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 ...
  • Riley, Michael Dennis (1981-09-01)
    This thesis explores how to represent image texture in order to obtain information about the geometry and structure of surfaces, with particular emphasis on locating surface discontinuities. Theoretical and psychophysical ...
  • Simmons, Reid G.; Davis, Randall (1983-04-01)
    This paper explores representations used to reason about objects which change over time and the processes which cause changes. Specifically, we are interested in solving a problem known as geologic interpretation. To ...
  • Simmons, Reid Gordon (1983-12-01)
    Geologic interpretation is the task of inferring a sequence of events to explain how a given geologic region could have been formed. This report describes the design and implementation of one part of a geologic interpretation ...
  • Doyle, Richard J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1983-01)
    Change pervades every moment of our lives. Much of our success in dealing with a constantly changing world is based in common-sense physical reasoning about processes and physical systems. Processes are the way quantities ...
  • Koton, Phyllis A. (1981-11)
    This paper considers two constraint systems, that of Steele and Sussman, and Alan Borning's Thinglab. Some functional difficulties in these systems are discussed. A representation of constraint systems using the description ...
