  • Yip, Kenneth; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1997-11-01)
    Humans rapidly and reliably learn many kinds of regularities and generalizations. We propose a novel model of fast learning that exploits the properties of sparse representations and the constraints imposed by a plausible ...
  • Evgeniou, Theodoros; Poggio, Tomaso (1997-09-01)
    We discuss the problem of finding sparse representations of a class of signals. We formalize the problem and prove it is NP-complete both in the case of a single signal and that of multiple ones. Next we develop a simple ...
  • Theocharous, Georgios; Mahadevan, Sridhar; Kaelbling, Leslie Pack (2005-09-27)
    Partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) are a well studied paradigm for programming autonomous robots, where the robot sequentially chooses actions to achieve long term goals efficiently. Unfortunately, ...
  • Marr, D.; Hishihara, H.K. (1975-12-01)
    It is proposed that the 3-D representation of an object is based primarily on a stick-figure configuration, where each stick represents one or more axes in the object's generalized cylinder representation. The loosely ...
  • Kuipers, Benjamin (1976-06-01)
    This paper introduces a model of spatial cognition to describe the states of partial knowledge that people have about the spatial structure of a large-scale environment. Spatial knowledge has several different ...
  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1980-12-01)
    This paper presents algorithms for computing constraints on the position of an object due to the presence of obstacles. This problem arises in applications which require choosing how to arrange or move objects among ...
  • Logothetis, N.K.; Pauls, J.; Poggio, T. (1995-03-01)
    The inferior temporal cortex (IT) of monkeys is thought to play an essential role in visual object recognition. Inferotemporal neurons are known to respond to complex visual stimuli, including patterns like faces, ...
  • Valdes-Perez, Raul E. (1986-05-01)
    Time and space are sufficiently similar to warrant in certain cases a common representation in AI problem-solving systems. What is represented is often the constraints that hold between objects, and a concern is the ...
  • Horswill, Ian (1995-04-22)
    In this report, I discuss the use of vision to support concrete, everyday activity. I will argue that a variety of interesting tasks can be solved using simple and inexpensive vision systems. I will provide a number ...
  • Atkinson, Russell; Hewitt, Carl (1977-08-01)
    This paper presents an implementation mechanism, specification language, and proof techniques for problems involving the arbitration of concurrent requests to shared resources. This mechanism is the serializer which ...
  • Hewitt, Carl; Attardi, Giuseppe; Lieberman, Henry (1979-06-01)
    In a distributed system where many processors are connected by a networ and communicate using message passing, many users can be allowed to access the same facilities. A public utility is usually an expensive or limited ...
  • Hewitt, Carl; Attardi, Giuseppe; Lieberman, Henry (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-05)
    In a distributed system where many processors are connected by a network and communicate using message passing, many users can be allowed to access the same facilities. A public utility is usually an expensive or limited ...
  • Feizi, Soheil; Quon, Gerald; Medard, Muriel; Kellis, Manolis; Jadbabaie, Ali (2015-02-18)
    Network alignment refers to the problem of finding a bijective mapping across vertices of two or more graphs to maximize the number of overlapping edges and/or to minimize the number of mismatched interactions across ...
  • Hurlbert, A.; Poggio, T. (1985-04-01)
    We review some recent psychophysical, psychological and anatomical data which highlight the important role of attention in visual information processing, and discuss the evidence for a serial spotlight of attention. ...
  • Hall, Robert J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-03)
    I examine the scope and causes of the spurious behavior problem in two widely different approaches to qualitative prediction, Sacks' PLR and Kuipers' QSIM. QSIM's proliferation of spurious behaviors and PLR's limited ...
  • Flynn, Anita M.; Brooks, Rodney A.; Wells, William M., III; Barrett, David S. (1989-07-01)
    This paper describes an exercise in building a complete robot aimed at being as small as possible but using off-the-shelf components exclusively. The result is an autonomous mobile robot slightly larger than one cubic ...
  • Blum, Manuel; Griffith, Arnold; Neumann, Bernard (1970-02-01)
    This work is based on notes provided by Manuel Blum, which are paraphrased in section I, and which contain the examples used in the appendix. The main portion of this report was written by Bernard Neumann, who generalized ...
  • Corduneanu, Adrian; Jaakkola, Tommi (2001-11-08)
    An increasing number of parameter estimation tasks involve the use of at least two information sources, one complete but limited, the other abundant but incomplete. Standard algorithms such as EM (or em) used in this context ...
  • Feamster, Nick; Johari, Ramesh; Balakrishnan, Hari (2005-02-08)
    Thousands of competing autonomous systems (ASes) mustcooperate with each other to provide global Internet connectivity.These ASes encode various economic, business,and performance decisions in their routing policies. The ...
  • Long, Fan; Rinard, Martin (2015-03-11)
    We present SPR, a new program repair system that uses condition synthesis to instantiate transformation schemas to repair program defects. SPR s staged repair strategy combines a rich space of potential repairs with a ...
