  • Shelton, Christian R. (1998-12-01)
    This paper describes the problem of three-dimensional object correspondence and presents an algorithm for matching two three-dimensional colored surfaces using polygon reduction and the minimization of an energy function. ...
  • Marill, Thomas (1995-10-01)
    We provide a theory of the three-dimensional interpretation of a class of line-drawings called p-images, which are interpreted by the human vision system as parallelepipeds ("boxes"). Despite their simplicity, p-images ...
  • Schott, Jean-Pierre (1989-09-01)
    A new formulation for recovering the structure and motion parameters of a moving patch using both motion and shading information is presented. It is based on a new differential constraint equation (FICE) that links the ...
  • Huttenlocher, Daniel Peter (1988-10-01)
    This thesis addresses the problem of recognizing solid objects in the three-dimensional world, using two-dimensional shape information extracted from a single image. Objects can be partly occluded and can occur in ...
  • Katz, Boris (1980-12-01)
    This paper outlines a three-step plan for generating English text from any semantic representation by applying a set of syntactic transformations to a collection of kernel sentences. The paper focuses on describing a ...
  • McAllester, David A. (1978-05-01)
    Truth maintenance systems have been used in recently developed problem solving systems. A truth maintenance system (TMS) is designed to be used by deductive systems to maintain the logical relations among the beliefs ...
  • Tan, Cheston; Leibo, Joel Z; Poggio, Tomaso (2012)
    In recent years, scientific and technological advances have produced artificial systems that have matched or surpassed human capabilities in narrow domains such as face detection and optical character recognition. However, ...
  • Shrobe, Howard; Knight, Thomas; Hon, Andre de (2007-05-30)
    The last 20 years have led to unprecedented improvements in chipdensity and system performance fueled mainly by Moore's Law. Duringthe same time, system and application software have bloated, leadingto unmanageable ...
  • Riley, Michael D. (1987-05-01)
    This work addresses two related questions. The first question is what joint time-frequency energy representations are most appropriate for auditory signals, in particular, for speech signals in sonorant regions. The ...
  • Skordos, P. A. (1992-09-01)
    A time-reversible Maxwell's demon is demonstrated which creates a density difference between two chambers initialized to have equal density. The density difference is estimated theoretically and confirmed by computer ...
  • White, John (1968-03-01)
    This memo written in the style and convention of A.I. memo No. 116A, may be considered an addendum thereto. It should prove to be a welcome updating on the LISP system.
  • Torralba, Antonio; Fergus, Rob; Freeman, William T. (2007-04-23)
    The human visual system is remarkably tolerant to degradations in image resolution: in a scene recognition task, human performance is similar whether $32 \times 32$ color images or multi-mega pixel images are used. With ...
  • Flynn, Anita M.; Udayakumar, K. R.; Barrett, David S. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1992-07)
    Surgical procedures have changed radically over the last few years due to the arrival of new technology. What will technology bring us in the future? This paper examines a few of the forces whose timing are causing new ...
  • Levin, Michael (1966-01-01)
    The concept of free as in "free group" is generalized to any first order theory. An interesting class of homomorphisms between models is discussed. Relations between model theory and abelian categories are discussed ...
  • Levin, Michael (1965-05-01)
    The concept of "free" as in free group and free semi-group is extended to arbitrary first order theories. Every consistent theory has free models. Some problems of obtaining a categorical theory of models are discussed.
  • Perlman, Radia (1974-12-01)
    TORTIS is a device for preschool children to communicated with and program the turtle. It consistst of several boxes (currently 3 button boxes and two blox boxes) designed so that only a few new concepts are introduced ...
  • Benjamin, Michael R.; Leonard, John J.; Schmidt, Henrik; Newman, Paul M. (2009-02-13)
    This paper provides an overview of the MOOS-IvP autonomy software modules. The MOOS-IvP collection of software, i.e., codebase, described here has been developed and is currently maintained by three organizations - Oxford ...
  • Brady, Mike (1980-09-01)
    This paper is the first of a series aimed at developing a theory of early visual processing in reading. We suggest that there has been a close parallel in the development of theories of reading and theories of vision ...
  • Charniak, Eugene (1972-12-01)
    How does a person answer questions about children's stories? For example, consider 'Janet wanted Jack's paints. She looked at the picture he was painting and said 'Those paints make your picture look funny.' The ...
  • Barton, G. Edward, Jr. (1984-07-01)
    Parser design lags behind linguistic theory. While modern transformational grammar has largely abandoned complex, language-specific rule systems in favor of modular subsystems of principles and parameters, the rule ...
