  • Chen, Jing (2008-05-01)
    Micali and Valiant proposed a mechanism for combinatorial auctions that is dominant-strategy truthful, guarantees reasonably high revenue, and is very resilient against collusions. Their mechanism, however, uses as a ...
  • Riesenhuber, Maximilian (2001-12-10)
    Baylis & Driver (Nature Neuroscience, 2001) have recently presented data on the response of neurons in macaque inferotemporal cortex (IT) to various stimulus transformations. They report that neurons can generalize over ...
  • Li, Hui X. (2005-05-20)
    Conflict-directed search algorithms have formed the core of practical, model-based reasoning systems for the last three decades. In many of these applications there is a series of discrete constraint optimization problems ...
  • Srebro, Nathan; Jaakkola, Tommi (2003-01-15)
    We study the frequent problem of approximating a target matrix with a matrix of lower rank. We provide a simple and efficient (EM) algorithm for solving {\\em weighted} low rank approximation problems, which, unlike simple ...
  • Yuille, A.L.; Poggio, T. (1984-05-01)
    The ordering constraint along epipolar lines is a powerful constraint that has been exploited by some recent stereomatching algorithms. We formulate a generalized ordering constraint, not restricted to epipolar lines. ...
  • Resnick, Paul (1989-02-01)
    This thesis explores ways to augment a model-based diagnostic program with a learning component, so that it speeds up as it solves problems. Several learning components are proposed, each exploiting a different kind ...
  • Blumberg, Andrew Justin (1996-12-01)
    In this paper I describe and extend a new DNA computing paradigm introduced in Blumberg for building massively parallel machines in the DNA-computing models described by Adelman, Cai et. al., and Liu et. al. Employing ...
  • Connell, Jonathan H.; Brady, Michael (1985-07-01)
    We report on initial experiments with an implemented learning system whose inputs are images of two-dimensional shapes. The system first builds semantic network descriptions of shapes based on Brady's smoothed local ...
  • Shirley, Mark Harper (1988-12-01)
    This thesis describes two programs for generating tests for digital circuits that exploit several kinds of expert knowledge not used by previous approaches. First, many test generation problems can be solved efficiently ...
  • Beal, Jacob (2002-01-01)
    In a distributed model of intelligence, peer components need to communicate with one another. I present a system which enables two agents connected by a thick twisted bundle of wires to bootstrap a simple communication ...
  • Chiu, Stephen L. (1985-06-01)
    The flexibility of the robot is the key to its success as a viable aid to production. Flexibility of a robot can be explained in two directions. The first is to increase the physical generality of the robot such that ...
  • 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 ...
