  • Aboaf, Eric W. (1988-08-01)
    We are investigating how to program robots so that they learn from experience. Our goal is to develop principled methods of learning that can improve a robot's performance of a wide range of dynamic tasks. We have ...
  • Aboaf, Eric W.; Atkeson, Christopher G.; Reinkensmeyer, David J. (1987-12-01)
    We are investigating how to program robots so that they learn tasks from practice. One method, task-level learning, provides advantages over simply perfecting models of the robot's lower level systems. Task-level ...
  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2006-03-31)
    In the Probabilistic I/O Automata (PIOA) framework, nondeterministicchoices are resolved using perfect-information schedulers,which are similar to history-dependent policies for Markov decision processes(MDPs). These ...
  • Canetti,, Ran; Cheung,, Ling; Kaynar,, Dilsun; Liskov,, Moses; Lynch,, Nancy; Pereira,, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2006-09-05)
    Modeling frameworks such as Probabilistic I/O Automata (PIOA) andMarkov Decision Processes permit both probabilistic andnondeterministic choices. In order to use such frameworks to express claims about probabilities of ...
  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2009.)
    Modeling frameworks such as Probabilistic I/O Automata (PIOA) and Markov Decision Processes permit both probabilistic and nondeterministic choices. In order to use these frameworks to express claims about probabilities of ...
  • McAllester, David; Givan, Robert (1989-06-01)
    Most knowledge representation languages are based on classes and taxonomic relationships between classes. Taxonomic hierarchies without defaults or exceptions are semantically equivalent to a collection of formulas ...
  • Wang, David; Williams, Brian C. (2014-10-24)
    Planning for and controlling a network of interacting devices requires a planner that accounts for the automatic timed transitions of devices while meeting deadlines and achieving durative goals. For example, a planner for ...
  • Abelson, Hal; Goldenberg, Paul (1977-04-01)
    This is an experimental curriculum unit which suggests how the computational perspective can be integrated into a subject such as elementary school biology. In order to illustrate the interplay of computer and non-computer ...
  • Marjanovic, Matthew J. (2003-06-20)
    As AI has begun to reach out beyond its symbolic, objectivist roots into the embodied, experientialist realm, many projects are exploring different aspects of creating machines which interact with and respond to the world ...
  • Papert, Seymour A. (1971-10-01)
    This paper is dedicated to the hope that someone with power to act will one day see that contemporary research on education is like the following experiment by a nineteenth century engineer who worked to demonstrate that ...
  • Papert, Seymour A. (1971-07-01)
    Being a mathematician is no more definable as 'knowing' a set of mathematical facts than being a poet is definable as knowing a set of linguistic facts. Some modern math ed reformers will give this statement a too easy ...
  • Sussman, Gerald Jay (1972-10-01)
    The idea of building a programmer is very seductive in that it holds the promise of massive bootstrapping and thus ties in with many ideas about learning and teaching. I will avoid going into those issues here. It is ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (1970-09-01)
    Analysis of the structure of procedures is central to the foundations of problem soling. In this paper we explore three principle means for teaching procedures: telling, canned loops, and procedural abstraction. The ...
  • Austin, Howard (1976-04-01)
    This research is concerned with the question of whether or not teachers who lack specialized backgrounds can adapt to and become proficient in the technically complex, philosophically sophisticated LOGO learning ...
  • Solomon, Cynthia J. (1976-12-01)
    Computers open up new ways to think about knowledge and learning. Learning computer science should draw upon and feed these new approaches. In a previous paper called "Leading a Child to a Computer Culture" I discuss ...
  • Leonard, John; Barrett, David; How, Jonathan; Teller, Seth; Antone, Matt; Campbell, Stefan; Epstein, Alex; Fiore, Gaston; Fletcher, Luke; Frazzoli, Emilio; Huang, Albert; Jones, Troy; Koch, Olivier; Kuwata, Yoshiaki; Mahelona, Keoni; Moore, David; Moyer, Katy; Olson, Edwin; Peters, Steven; Sanders, Chris; Teo, Justin; Walter, Matthew (2007-12-14)
    This technical report describes Team MIT’s approach to theDARPA Urban Challenge. We have developed a novel strategy forusing many inexpensive sensors, mounted on the vehicle periphery,and calibrated with a new cross-­modal ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1965-01-01)
    The TVA (Television Adaptor) is a data-input device just completed. Any standard Closed-Circuit Television Camera can be connected to the PDP-6, without modification, by a single BNC connector. Then a simple program can ...
  • Sterpe, Peter (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1984-05)
    This paper proposes an editing tool named TEMPEST (TEMPlate Editor for Structured Text) whose goal is to extend a text editing environment by using templates to incorporate into it some knowledge of the structure of the ...
  • Sterpe, Peter J. (1985-06-01)
    TEMPEST is a full-screen text editor that incorporates a structural paradigm in addition to the more traditional textual paradigm provided by most editors. While the textual paradigm treats the text as a sequence of ...
  • Brunelli, Roberto; Poggio, Tomaso (1995-10-01)
    Template matching by means of cross-correlation is common practice in pattern recognition. However, its sensitivity to deformations of the pattern and the broad and unsharp peaks it produces are significant drawbacks. This ...
