  • Igarashi, Takeo; Durand, Fredo; Rivers, Alec (2010-05-05)
    We describe a user study comparing 3D Modeling with Silhouettes and Google SketchUp. In the user study, ten users were asked to create 3D models of three different objects, using either 3D Modeling with Silhouettes or ...
  • Papert, Seymour (1973-06-01)
    Section 1: Schematic outline of project and what we want. Hardly any intellectual content. Section 2: Statement of our goals in general terms. This statement is intended to have serious intellectual content but lacks meaty ...
  • Chklovski, Timothy (2003-02-12)
    The goal of the work reported here is to capture the commonsense knowledge of non-expert human contributors. Achieving this goal will enable more intelligent human-computer interfaces and pave the way for computers to ...
  • Agarwal, Anant; Rinard, Martin; Sidiroglou, Stelios; Misailovic, Sasa; Hoffmann, Henry (2009-09-03)
    Many modern computations (such as video and audio encoders, Monte Carlo simulations, and machine learning algorithms) are designed to trade off accuracy in return for increased performance. To date, such computations ...
  • Balas, Benjamin (2005-02-07)
    Traditionally, human texture perception has been studied using artificial textures made of random-dot patterns or abstract structured elements. At the same time, computer algorithms for the synthesis of natural textures ...
  • Perlman, Radia (1976-05-01)
    TORTIS is a system of special terminals together with software which is designed to provide programming capability and be accesible for use by very young children. The system is designed to add capabilities in small ...
  • Nguyen, Huu Hai; Rinard, Martin (2005-10-26)
    We present and evaluate a new memory management technique foreliminating memory leaks in programs with dynamic memoryallocation. This technique observes the execution of the program on asequence of training inputsto find ...
  • Katz, Boris (1988-10-01)
    This paper describes a natural language system START. The system analyzes English text and automatically transforms it into an appropriate representation, the knowledge base, which incorporates the information found in the ...
  • Smith, David A. (1979-05-01)
    The processes involved in vision, manipulation, and spatial reasoning depend greatly on the particular representation of three-dimensional objects used. A novel representation, based on concepts of differential geometry, ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-04)
    This paper advocates a programming methodology using message passing. Efficient programs are derived for fast exponentiation, merging ordered sequences, and path existence determination in a directed graph. The problems ...
  • Kornfeld, William A. (1979-12-01)
    Parallel processing as a conceptual aid in the design of programs for problem solving applications is developed. A pattern directed invocation language know as Ether is introduced. Ether embodies tow notions in language ...
  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2006-06-19)
    We demonstrate how to carry out cryptographic security analysis ofdistributed protocols within the Probabilistic I/O Automataframework of Lynch, Segala, and Vaandrager. This framework providestools for arguing rigorously ...

  • Cheung, Alvin; Solar-Lezama, Armando; Madden, Samuel (2012-08-13)
    This paper presents a new approach to select events of interest to a user in a social media setting where events are generated by the activities of the user's friends through their mobile devices. We argue that given the ...
  • Kennedy, Thomas R., III (1987-05-01)
    Direct, construct by construct translation from one high level language to another often produces convoluted, unnatural, and unreadable results, particularly when the source and target languages support different ...
  • Jones, Michael J. (1992-09-01)
    This report explores how recurrent neural networks can be exploited for learning high-dimensional mappings. Since recurrent networks are as powerful as Turing machines, an interesting question is how recurrent networks ...
  • Nieh, Jason (1989-09-01)
    Studying chaotic behavior in nonlinear systems requires numerous computations in order to simulate the behavior of such systems. The Standard Map Machine was designed and implemented as a special computer for performing ...
  • Hamscher, Walter (1983-06-01)
    We wish to design a diagnostic for a device from knowledge of its structure and function. the diagnostic should achieve both coverage of the faults that can occur in the device, and should strive to achieve specificity ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P.; Bachman, Brett L. (1977-08-01)
    A number of image analysis tasks can benefit from registration of the image with a model of the surface being imaged. Automatic navigation using visible light or radar images requires exact alignment of such images ...
  • Canetti, Ran; Cheung, Ling; Kaynar, Dilsun; Liskov, Moses; Lynch, Nancy; Pereira, Olivier; Segala, Roberto (2007-02-16)
    The Probabilistic I/O Automata framework of Lynch, Segala and Vaandrager provides tools for precisely specifying protocols and reasoning about their correctness using multiple levels of abstraction, based on implementation ...
