  • Bachrach, Jonathan; Beal, Jacob; Fujiwara, Takeshi (2007-07)
    A spatial computer is a collection of devices filling spacewhose ability to interact is strongly dependent on theirproximity. Previously, we have showed that programmingsuch a computer as a continuous space can allow ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso; Girosi, Federico (1990-12-01)
    Marroquin and Ramirez (1990) have recently discovered a class of discrete stochastic cellular automata with Gibbsian invariant measures that have a non-reversible dynamic behavior. Practical applications include more ...
  • Bachelder, Ivan A. (1992-04-01)
    Partial constraints are often available in visual processing tasks requiring the matching of contours in two images. We propose a non- iterative scheme to determine contour matches using locally affine transformations. ...
  • Bradley, Elizabeth (1991-10-01)
    Control algorithms which exploit the unique properties of chaos can vastly improve the design and performance of many practical and useful systems. The program Perfect Moment is built around such an algorithm. Given ...
  • Bradley, Elizabeth (1991-03-01)
    This paper presents techniques that actively exploit chaotic behavior to accomplish otherwise-impossible control tasks. The state space is mapped by numerical integration at different system parameter values and ...
  • Blackmore, Lars; Block, Steve (2006-02-28)
    The objective of this project is to achieve reliable transfer of an object from one robotic manipulator to another. This capability is useful for a number of applications, for instance robotic assembly, or robots with ...
  • Raibert, Marc (1977-04-01)
    This is the second of a two part presentation of a model for motor control and learning. The model was implemented using a small computer and the MIT -Scheinman manipulator. Experiments were conducted which demonstrate ...
  • Dunlavey, Michael R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-08)
    This memo describes a vision program for recognizing simple furniture comprising assemblies of blocks, in which the same item may be composed in diverse ways. As such, it is concerned with three theoretical issues, perceptual ...
  • 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 ...
