  • Haase, Kenneth W., Jr. (1986-04-01)
    Cyrano is a thoughtful reimplementation of Lenat's controversial Eurisko program, designed to perform automated discovery and concept formation in a variety of technical fields. The 'thought' in the reimplementation ...
  • Haase, Ken (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-03)
    The emergence in 1976 of Doug Lenat's mathematical discovery program AM [Len76] [Len82a] was met with suprise and controversy; AM's performance seemed to bring the dream of super-intelligent machines to our doorstep, with ...
  • Urtasun, Raquel; Darrell, Trevor (2007-03-28)
    Supervised learning is difficult with high dimensional input spacesand very small training sets, but accurate classification may bepossible if the data lie on a low-dimensional manifold. GaussianProcess Latent Variable ...
  • Bulthoff, Henrich; Fahle, Manfred (1989-09-01)
    The binocular perception of shape and depth relations between objects can change considerably if the viewing direction is changed only by a small angle. We explored this effect psychophysically and found a strong depth ...
  • Binford, Thomas O. (1970-03-01)
    This note describes a system which compiles various forms of LISP lists and arrays into display commands for the DEC 340 display, and provides supporting functions for scaling, for moving elements in a display, for pot ...
  • Balas, Benjamin J.; Sinha, Pawan (2003-08-13)
    A fundamental question in visual neuroscience is how to represent image structure. The most common representational schemes rely on differential operators that compare adjacent image regions. While well-suited to encoding ...

  • Basri, Ronen; Weinshall, Daphna (1992-07-01)
    Similarity measurements between 3D objects and 2D images are useful for the tasks of object recognition and classification. We distinguish between two types of similarity metrics: metrics computed in image-space (image ...
  • Tzanov, Velin K. (2006-12-05)
    The main goal of this thesis is to demonstrate the applicability of the distributed systems paradigm to robotic systems. This goal is accomplished by presenting two solutions to the Distributed Area Search problem: organizing ...
  • Qumsiyeh, Dany M. (2008-07-14)
    This thesis investigates the feasibility of a smart building evacuation system, capable of guiding occupants along safe paths to exits and responding to changing threats. Inspired by developments in amorphous computing, ...
  • Oshman, Rotem; Lynch, Nancy; Kuhn, Fabian (2009-11-10)
    In this report we investigate distributed computation in dynamic networks in which the network topology changes from round to round. We consider a worst-case model in which the communication links for each round are chosen ...
  • Block, Stephen (2007-03-05)
    Many applications of autonomous agents require groups to work in tight coordination. To be dependable, these groups must plan, carry out and adapt their activities in a way that is robust to failure and to uncertainty. ...
  • Mataric, Maja J. (1990-05-01)
    A distributed method for mobile robot navigation, spatial learning, and path planning is presented. It is implemented on a sonar-based physical robot, Toto, consisting of three competence layers: 1) Low-level navigation: ...
  • Panchekha, Pavel; Brodsky, Micah (2013-10-08)
    Shared mutable state is challenging to maintain in a distributed environment. We develop a technique, based on the Operational Transform, that guides independent agents into producing consistent states through inconsistent ...
  • Uzuner, Ozlem (2004-07-25)
    In this paper, we discuss a wireless grid in which users are highly mobile, and form ad-hoc and sometimes short-lived connections with other devices. As they roam through networks, the users may choose to employ ...
  • Perez-Breva, Luis; Ortiz, Luis E.; Yeang, Chen-Hsiang, 1969-; Jaakkola, Tommi (2006-03-06)
    We propose a game-theoretic approach tolearn and predict coordinate binding of multiple DNA bindingregulators. The framework implements resource constrainedallocation of proteins to local neighborhoods as well as to ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso; Mutch, Jim; Anselmi, Fabio; Tacchetti, Andrea; Rosasco, Lorenzo; Leibo, Joel Z. (2013-08-06)
    Tuning properties of simple cells in cortical V1 can be described in terms of a "universal shape" characterized by parameter values which hold across different species. This puzzling set of findings begs for a general ...
  • Fahlman, Scott E. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-09)
    This paper briefly discusses the following questions: What are the benefits of special-purpose languages? When is a field ready for such a language? Are any parts of our current vision research ready?
  • Amsterdam, Jonathan (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1990-05)
    I describe an iteration macro for Common Lisp that is clear, efficient, extensible, and in excellent taste.
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr.; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1979-11-01)
    We define a "rack", a data abstraction hybrid of a register and a stack. It is used for encapsulating the behavior of the kind of register whose contents may have an extent which requires that it be saved during the ...
