  • 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 ...
  • Clinger, Will (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1979-06)
  • Abelson, Hal; Adams, Jim (1974-12-01)
    This is a brief description of the primitives in PDP 11 LOGO. It is intended to provide a quick reference for users who are already familiar with LOGO basics. For a more detailed and comprehensive description of LOGO, ...
  • Goldenberg, E. Paul (1975-03-01)
    This glossary was written for the purpose of providing a quick and concise yet accurate description of the primitives and special words and characters of the March 18, 1975 PDP 11 implementation of the LOGO languge. ...
  • Abbott, Russ (1967-06-01)
    Underlined terms are included in the glossary.
  • Lavin, Mark A. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03)
    This paper discusses the visual phenomenon of gloss. It is shown that the perception of this phenomenon derives from two effects (1) that the image reflected by a glossy surface lies in a different plane from the surface, ...
  • Flynn, A. M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1987-06)
    A new concept in mobile robots is proposed, namely that of a gnat-sized autonomous robot with on-board sensors, brains, actuators and power supplies, all fabricated on a single piece of silicon. Recent breakthroughs in ...
  • Kashket, Michael B. (1987-01-01)
    Free-word order languages have long posed significant problems for standard parsing algorithms. This thesis presents an implemented parser, based on Government-Binding (GB) theory, for a particular free-word order ...
  • Waters, Richard C. (1981-10-01)
    A pretty printer is presented which makes it easy for a user to control the format of the output produced. The printer can be used as a general mechanism for printing data structures as well as programs. It is divided ...
