  • de la Maza, Michael; Tidor, Bruce (1991-12-01)
    Modifiable Boltzmann selective pressure is investigated as a tool to control variability in optimizations using genetic algorithms. An implementation of variable selective pressure, modeled after the use of temperature ...
  • McAllester, David; Zabih, Ramin (1986-09-01)
    Object-oriented programming languages all involve the notions of class and object. We extend the notion of class so that any Boolean combination of classes is also a class. Boolean classes allow greater precision and ...
  • Krishna, Tushar; Beckmann, Bradford M.; Peh, Li-Shiuan; Reinhardt, Steven K. (2011-03-14)
    Future many-core chips will require an on-chip network that can support broadcasts and multicasts at good power-performance. A vanilla on-chip network would send multiple unicast packets for each broadcast packet, resulting ...
  • Yokono, Jerry Jun; Poggio, Tomaso (2005-07-07)
    Object recognition systems relying on local descriptors are increasingly used because of their perceived robustness with respect to occlusions and to global geometrical deformations. Descriptors of this type -- based on ...
  • Tieu, Kinh; Viola, Paul (1999-09-10)
    We present an approach for image database retrieval using a very large number of highly-selective features and simple on-line learning. Our approach is predicated on the assumption that each image is generated by a ...
  • Kandula, Srikanth; Katabi, Dina; Jacob, Matthias; Berger, Arthur (2004-10-22)
    Recent denial of service attacks are mounted by professionalsusing Botnets of tens of thousands of compromisedmachines. To circumvent detection, attackers areincreasingly moving away from pure bandwidth oods toattacks ...
  • Fleck, Margaret Morrison (1988-09-01)
    This thesis develops a model for the topological structure of situations. In this model, the topological structure of space is altered by the presence or absence of boundaries, such as those at the edges of objects. ...
  • Rubin, John M.; Richards, W.A. (1985-04-01)
    A representation of visual motion convenient for recognition shouldsmake prominent the qualitative differences among simple motions. Wesargue that the first stage in such a motion representation is to makesexplicit ...
  • Pass, Rafael; Shelat, Abhi; Vaikuntanathan, Vinod (2006-12-14)
    Under an adaptive chosen ciphertext attack (CCA2), the security of an encryption scheme must hold against adversaries that have access to a decryption oracle. We consider a weakening of CCA2 security, wherein security ...
  • Censor-Hillel, Keren; Haeupler, Bernhard; Lynch, Nancy; Medard, Muriel (2012-08-27)
    Efficient communication in wireless networks is typically challenged by the possibility of interference among several transmitting nodes. Much important research has been invested in decreasing the number of collisions in ...
  • Beckmann, Nathan; Sanchez, Daniel (2015-12-19)
    Much prior work has studied processor cache replacement policies, but a large gap remains between theory and practice. The optimal policy (MIN) requires unobtainable knowledge of the future, and prior theoretically-grounded ...
  • Chiesa, Alessandro; Micali, Silvio; Zhu, Zeyuan Allen (2013-12-03)
    We relate the strategies obtained by (1) utility maximizers who use regret to refine their set of undominated strategies, and (2) regret minimizers who use weak domination to refine their sets of regret-minimizing strategies.
  • Edelman, Shimon; Poggio, Tomaso (1990-04-01)
    We describe experiments with a versatile pictorial prototype based learning scheme for 3D object recognition. The GRBF scheme seems to be amenable to realization in biophysical hardware because the only kind of ...
  • Oshman, Rotem; Richa, Andrea; Newport, Calvin; Lynch, Nancy; Kuhn, Fabian (2010-06-08)
    Practitioners agree that unreliable links, which fluctuate between working and not working, are an important characteristic of wireless networks. In contrast, most theoretical models of radio networks fix a static set of ...
  • Robbins, Richard E. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1984-08)
    BUILD is a proposed tool for constructing systems from existing modules. BUILD system descriptions are composed of module declarations and assertions of how modules refer to each other. An extensible library of information ...
  • Robbins, Richard Elliot (1985-11-01)
    Build is a tool for keeping modular systems in a consistent state by managing the construction tasks (e.g. compilation, linking, etc.) associated with such systems. It employs a user supplied system model and a ...
  • Brooks, Rodney; Stein, Lynn A. (1993-08-01)
    We describe a project to capitalize on newly available levels of computational resources in order to understand human cognition. We will build an integrated physical system including vision, sound input and output, and ...
  • Roberts, Bruce (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-04)
    An explanatory component is an important ingredient in any complex AI system. A simple generative scheme to build descriptive phrases from Lisp function calls can produce respectable explanations if explanation generators ...
  • Hearn, Robert A. (2004-06-16)
    Most Artificial Intelligence (AI) work can be characterized as either ``high-level'' (e.g., logical, symbolic) or ``low-level'' (e.g., connectionist networks, behavior-based robotics). Each approach suffers from particular ...
