  • Subirana-Vilanova, J. Brian (1991-10-01)
    In this paper we present an approach to perceptual organization and attention based on Curved Inertia Frames (C.I.F.), a novel definition of "curved axis of inertia'' tolerant to noisy and spurious data. The definition ...
  • Horn, B.K.P. (1981-01-01)
    Here we search for the curve which has the smallest integral of the square of curvature, while passing through two given points with given orientation. This is the true shape of a spline used in lofting. In computer-aided ...
  • Syeda-Mahmood, Tanveer Fathima (1992-02-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of determining which regions in the image are likely to come from a single object. In this paper we present an approach that extracts ...
  • Tanveer, S.; Mahmood, F. (1993-05-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of isolating regions in an image that are likely to come from a single object. This isolation can be either based solely on image data ...
  • Spertus, Ellen (1990-05-01)
    The dataflow model of computation exposes and exploits parallelism in programs without requiring programmer annotation; however, instruction- level dataflow is too fine-grained to be efficient on general-purpose ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-09-01)
    The internal representations of the various MacLISP data types are presented and discussed. Certain implementation tradeoffs are considered. The ultimate decisions on these tradeoffs are discussed in the light of ...
  • Demsky, Brian; Rinard, Martin (2004-05-18)
    Model-based data structure repair is a promising techniquefor enabling programs to continue to execute successfullyin the face of otherwise fatal data structure corruption errors.Previous research in this eld relied on ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03-08)
    This paper presents a solution to the problem of determining the distribution of an absorbing substance inside a non-opaque non-scattering body from images or ray samplings. It simultaneously solves the problem of determining ...
  • Osman, Eric (1971-09-01)
    This memo describes the version of DDT used as the command level of the A.I. Laboratory Time Sharing System (ITS). Besides the usual program control, examination, and modification features, this DDT provides many ...
  • Das, Sanmay (2006-07-12)
    This thesis seeks to contribute to the understanding of markets populated by boundedly rational agents who learn from experience. Bounded rationality and learning have both been the focus of much research in computer ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-10-01)
    Folklore states that GOTO statements are 'cheap', while procedure calls are 'expensive'. This myth is largely a result of poorly designed language implementations. The historical growth of this myth is considered. Both ...
  • Lee, Jintae (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1989-08)
    In this report, I describe a language, called Decision Representation Language (DRL), for representing the qualitative aspects of decision making processes such as the alternatives being evaluated, goals to satisfy, and ...
  • Khabbazian, Majid; Kowalski, Dariusz; Kuhn, Fabian; Lynch, Nancy (2011-02-23)
    In much of the theoretical literature on global broadcast algorithms for wireless networks, issues of message dissemination are considered together with issues of contention management. This combination leads to complicated ...
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1967-09-01)
    This memorandum describes a program which finds bodies in a scene, presumably formed by 3-dimensional objects, with some of them perhaps not completely visible.
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1969-01-01)
    The program described here takes as its input a collection of lines, vertices and surfaces describing a scene, and analyzes the scene into a composition of three-dimensional objects. The program does not need to know the ...
  • Ragan-Kelley, Jonathan; Doggett, Michael; Lehtinen, Jaakko; Chen, Jiawen; Durand, Fredo (2010-03-29)
    We propose decoupled sampling, an approach that decouples shading from visibility sampling in order to enable motion blur and depth-of-field at reduced cost. More generally, it enables extensions of modern real-time graphics ...
  • Su, Sara L.; Durand, Fredo; Agrawala, Maneesh (2005-04-12)
    A major obstacle in photography is the presence of distracting elements that pull attention away from the main subject and clutter the composition. In this article, we present a new image-processing technique that reduces ...
  • Ristad, Eric Sven (1986-04-01)
    This paper is a formal analysis of whether generalized phrase structure grammar's (GPSG) weak context-free generative power will allow it to achieve three of its central goals: (1) to characterize all and only the ...
  • Tauber, Joshua A.; Garland, Stephen J. (2004-07-19)
    The IOA language provides notations for defining both primitive and composite I/O automata.This note describes, both formally and with examples, the constraints on these definitions, thecomposability requirements for the ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1980-08-01)
    The constraint paradigm is a model of computation in which values are deduced whenever possible, under the limitation that deductions be local in a certain sense. One may visualize a constraint 'program' as a network ...
