  • Lim, Kuk Huang (1981-02-01)
    The dynamics and control of tendon driven three degree of freedom shoulder joint are studied. A control scheme consisting of two phases has been developed. In the first phase, approximation of the time optimal control ...
  • Bennett, David J. (1990-05-01)
    A serial-link manipulator may form a mobile closed kinematic chain when interacting with the environment, if it is redundant with respect to the task degrees of freedom (DOFs) at the endpoint. If the mobile closed chain ...
  • Meckl, Peter Heinrich (1988-01-01)
    Dynamic systems which undergo rapid motion can excite natural frequencies that lead to residual vibration at the end of motion. This work presents a method to shape force profiles that reduce excitation energy at the ...
  • Girosi, Federico; Anzellotti, Gabriele (1992-03-01)
    In this paper we consider the problem of approximating a function belonging to some funtion space Φ by a linear comination of n translates of a given function G. Ussing a lemma by Jones (1990) and Barron (1991) we show ...
  • Jordan, Michael I.; Xu, Lei (1993-11-01)
    The Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm is an iterative approach to maximum likelihood parameter estimation. Jordan and Jacobs (1993) recently proposed an EM algorithm for the mixture of experts architecture of ...
  • McDonald, David D. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-09)
    This paper discusses the problem of getting a computer to speak, generating natural language that is appropriate to the situation and is what it wants to say. It describes, at a general level, a program which will embody ...

    Guzman, Adolfo; McIntosh, Harold (1966-06-01)
    A programming language is described which is applicable to problems conveniently described by transformation rules. By this we mean that patterns may be prescribed, each being associated with a skeleton, so that a series ...
  • Donovan, Alan; Kiezun, Adam; Tschantz, Matthew S.; Ernst, Michael D. (2004-03-30)
    Java 1.5 will include a type system (called JSR-14) that supports parametric polymorphism, or generic classes. This will bring many benefits to Java programmers, not least because current Java practice makes heavy use of ...
  • Marr, D.; Poggio, T. (1976-06-01)
    The extraction of stereo disparity information from two images depends upon establishing a correspondence between them. This article analyzes the nature of the correspondence computation, and derives a cooperative algorithm ...
  • Poggio, M.; Poggio, T. (1995-04-11)
    We have simulated the behavior of several artificial flies, interacting visually with each other. Each fly is described by a simple tracking system (Poggio and Reichardt, 1973; Land and Collett, 1974) which summarizes ...
  • Lin, Kevin K. (1998-03-01)
    This project investigates the computational representation of differentiable manifolds, with the primary goal of solving partial differential equations using multiple coordinate systems on general n- dimensional spaces. ...
  • Leaute, Thomas (2006-04-28)
    Agile autonomous systems are emerging, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), that must robustly perform tightly coordinated time-critical missions; for example, military surveillance or search-and-rescue scenarios. In ...
  • Flash, Tamar; Hogan, Neville (1984-11-01)
    This paper presents studies of the coordination f voluntary human arm movements. A mathematical model is formulated which is shown to predict both the qualitative features and the quantitative details observed ...
  • Hofstadter, Douglas (1984-01-01)
    A micro-world is described, in which many analogies involving strikingly different concepts and levels of subtlety can be made. The question "What differentiates the good ones from the bad ones?" is discussed, and ...
  • Agarwal, Anant; Miller, Jason; Beckmann, Nathan; Wentzlaff, David (2010-02-11)
    The number of cores which fit on a single chip is growing at an exponential rate while off-chip main memory bandwidth is growing at a linear rate at best. This core count to off-chip bandwidth disparity causes per-core ...
  • Levow, Gina-Anne (1998-05-27)
    The need for robust and easily extensible systems for word sense disambiguation coupled with successes in training systems for a variety of tasks using large on-line corpora has led to extensive research into corpus-based ...
  • Bicchi, Antonio; Melchiorri, Claudio (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1990-12)
    This paper deals with the problem of controlling the interactions of flexible manipulators with their environment. For executing a force control task, a manipulator with intrinsic (mechanical) compliance has some advantages ...
  • Shashua, Amnon (1991-12-01)
    The paper presents a simple model for recovering affine shape and correspondence from two orthographic views of a 3D object. It is shown that four corresponding points along two orthographic views, taken under similar ...
  • Lynch, Nancy; Kuhn, Fabian; Kowalski, Dariusz; Khabbazian, Majid (2010-02-09)
    We analyze greedy algorithms for broadcasting messages throughout a multi-hop wireless network, using a slot-based model that includes message collisions without collision detection. Our algorithms are split formally into ...
  • Marill, Thomas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-11)
    The problem of three-dimensional vision is generally formulated as the problem of recovering the three-dimensional scene that caused the image. Here we present a certain line-drawing and show that it has the following ...
