  • Waltz, David L. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-11)
    The research reported here concerns the principles used to automatically generate three-dimensional representations from line drawings of scenes. The computer programs involved look at scenes which consist of polyhedra and ...

  • Marinov, Darko; Rodoicic, Rados (2003-10-09)
    We consider permutations that avoid the pattern 1324. We give exact formulas for thenumber of reducible 1324-avoiding permutations and the number of {1324, 4132, 2413, 3241}-avoiding permutations. By studying the generating ...
  • Kennell, Jonathan (2004-05-18)
    Autonomous vehicles are increasingly being used in mission-critical applications, and robust methods are needed for controlling these inherently unreliable and complex systems. This thesis advocates the use of model-based ...

  • Drescher, Gary L. (1986-02-01)
    This paper presents a constuctivist model of human cognitive development during infancy. According to constructivism, the elements of mental representation -- even such basic elements as the concept of physical object ...
  • Goldstein, Ira P. (1978-01-01)
    I shall describe a model of the evolution of the rule-structured knowledge that serves as a cornerstone of our development of computer-based coaches. The key idea is a graph structure whose nodes represent rules, and ...
  • Shashua, Amnon (1993-07-01)
    We investigate the differences --- conceptually and algorithmically --- between affine and projective frameworks for the tasks of visual recognition and reconstruction from perspective views. It is shown that an affine ...
  • Breuel, Thomas M. (1992-05-01)
    This thesis presents there important results in visual object recognition based on shape. (1) A new algorithm (RAST; Recognition by Adaptive Sudivisions of Tranformation space) is presented that has lower average-case ...
  • Shadmehr, Reza; Mussa-Ivaldi, Ferdinando (1993-07-01)
    The objects with which the hand interacts with may significantly change the dynamics of the arm. How does the brain adapt control of arm movements to this new dynamic? We show that adaptation is via composition of a ...
  • Shashua, Amnon (1992-11-01)
    The report addresses the problem of visual recognition under two sources of variability: geometric and photometric. The geometric deals with the relation between 3D objects and their views under orthographic and ...
  • Dolev, Shlomi; Gilbert, Seth; Lynch, Nancy A.; Shvartsman, Alex A.; Welch, Jennifer L. (2004-02-25)
    We present a new approach, the GeoQuorums approach, for implementing atomic read/write shared memoryin mobile ad hoc networks. Our approach is based on associating abstract atomic objects with certain geographiclocations. ...
  • Eisenstein, Jacob; Davis, Randall (2005-04-19)
    In human-human dialogues, face-to-face meetings are often preferred over phone conversations.One explanation is that non-verbal modalities such as gesture provide additionalinformation, making communication more efficient ...
  • Eisenstein, Jacob (2008-05-07)
    Computers cannot fully understand spoken language without access to the wide range of modalities that accompany speech. This thesis addresses the particularly expressive modality of hand gesture, and focuses on building ...
  • Stacy, Christopher C. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1982-09-07)
    This document describes the computing facilities at M.I.T. Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and explains how to get started using them. It is intended as an orientation document for newcomers to the lab, and will be ...
  • Doyle, Jon (1978-02-01)
    Many procedurally-oriented problem solving systems can be viewed as performing a mixture of computation and deduction, with much of the computation serving to decide what deductions should be made. This results in ...
  • Doyle, Jon (1978-11-01)
    To choose their actions, reasoning programs must be able to draw conclusions from limited information and subsequently revise their beliefs when discoveries invalidate previous assumptions. A truth maintenance system ...
  • Siapas, Athanassios G. (1992-12-01)
    We present a novel approach to parameter estimation of systems with complicated dynamics, as well as evidence for the existence of a universal power law that enables us to quantify the dependence of global geometry ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Oliva, Aude (2001-12-01)
    In the absence of cues for absolute depth measurements as binocular disparity, motion, or defocus, the absolute distance between the observer and a scene cannot be measured. The interpretation of shading, edges and junctions ...
