  • Kerns, Barbara S. (1980-12-01)
    This paper builds on a technical report written by Carl Hewitt and Henry Baker called "Actors and Continuous Functionals". What is called a "goal-oriented activity" in that paper will be referred to in this paper as a ...
  • Kerns, Barbara S. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-05)
    This paper builds on a technical report written by Carl Hewitt and Henry Baker called "Actors and Continuous Functionals". What is called a "goal-oriented activity" in that paper will be referred to in this paper as a ...
  • Sidner, Candace Lee (1979-06-01)
    This report investigates the process of focussing as a description and explanation of the comprehension of certain anaphoric expressions in English discourse. The investigation centers on the interpretation of definite ...
  • Vaina, Lucia M. (1980-02-01)
    Research in memory has been a frustrating task not least because of the intimate familiarity with what we are trying to understand, and partly also because the human cognitive system has developed as an interactive ...
  • Toleg, Sebastian; Poggio, Tomaso (1994-06-01)
    This paper consists of two major parts. First, we present the outline of a simple approach to very-low bandwidth video-conferencing system relying on an example-based hierarchical image compression scheme. In particular, ...
  • Abelson, Harold (1977-09-01)
    We formulate the rudiments of a method for assessing the difficulty of dividing a computational problem into "independent simpler parts." This work illustrates measures of complexity which attempt to capture the ...
  • Taalebinezhaad, M. Ali (1992-04-01)
    Earlier, we introduced a direct method called fixation for the recovery of shape and motion in the general case. The method uses neither feature correspondence nor optical flow. Instead, it directly employs the spatiotemporal ...
  • Brodsky, Micah Z. (Micah Zev); Efstathopoulos, Petros; Kaashoek, Frans; Kohler, Eddie; Krohn, Maxwell; Mazieres, David; Morris, Robert; VanDeBogart, Steve; Yip, Alexander (2007-08-06)
    We present a secure service prototype built from untrusted,contributed code.The service manages private data for a variety of different users, anduser programs frequently require access to other users' private data.However, ...
  • Rohanimanesh, Khashayar; Roy, Nicholas; Tedrake, Russ (2007-11-01)
    Choosing features for the critic in actor-critic algorithms with function approximation is known to be a challenge. Too few critic features can lead to degeneracy of the actor gradient, and too many features may lead to ...
  • Berlin, Andrew A. (1994-05-01)
    The buckling of compressively-loaded members is one of the most important factors limiting the overall strength and stability of a structure. I have developed novel techniques for using active control to wiggle a ...
  • Kumar, Vinay P. (2002-09-01)
    This thesis proposes a methodology for the design of man-machine interfaces by combining top-down and bottom-up processes in vision. From a computational perspective, we propose that the scientific-cognitive question ...
  • Rahul, Hariharan; Kasbekar, Mangesh; Sitaraman, Ramesh; Berger, Arthur (2005-11-01)
    Prior analyses of the benefits of routing overlays are based onplatforms consisting of nodes located primarily in North America, onthe academic Internet, and at the edge of the network. This paper isthe first global study ...
  • Geiger, Gadi; Amara, Domenic G (2005-10-18)
    Previous studies have shown that dyslexic individuals who supplement windowed reading practice with intensive small-scale hand-eye coordination tasks exhibit marked improvement in their reading skills. Here we examine ...
  • Kollar, Thomas; Dickerson, Steven; Tellex, Stefanie; Banerjee, Ashis Gopal; Walter, Matthew R.; Teller, Seth; Roy, Nicholas (2011-02-01)
    We describe a new model for understanding hierarchical natural language commands for robot navigation and manipulation. The model has three components: a semantic structure that captures the hierarchical structure of ...
  • Glover, Jared; Kaelbling, Leslie Pack (2013-03-27)
    A deterministic method for sequential estimation of 3-D rotations is presented. The Bingham distribution is used to represent uncertainty directly on the unit quaternion hypersphere. Quaternions avoid the degeneracies of ...
  • Finin, Tim (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-10)
    This working paper describes a collection of LISP programs written to examine the backs of printed circuit boards. These programs find and trace the conductive wires plated on the insulating material. The "pads", or solder ...
  • Lerman, Jerome B.; Woodham, Robert J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-08)
    A collection of LISP functions has been written to provide vidisector users with the following three line-oriented vision primitives: (i) given an initial point and an estimated initial direction, track a line in that ...
  • Givan, Robert; McAllester, David (1991-12-01)
    We consider the concept of local sets of inference rules. Locality is a syntactic condition on rule sets which guarantees that the inference relation defined by those rules is polynomial time decidable. Unfortunately, ...
  • Manning, Carl R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1984-12)
    The Apiary is an abstract computer architecture designed for performing computation based on the idea of message passing between dynamic computational objects called actors. An apiary connotes a community of worker bees ...
  • Chachulski, Szymon; Jennings, Michael; Katti, Sachin; Katabi, Dina (2007-02-23)
    Opportunistic routing is a recent technique that achieves high throughput in the face of lossy wireless links. The current opportunistic routing protocol, ExOR, ties the MAC with routing, imposing a strict schedule on ...
