  • Dunlavey, Michael R. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-05)
    Organization of knowledge requires the flexible use of hierarchy in descriptions. This memo attempts to catalog the issues related to recognizing and executing such descriptions, drawing examples primarily from the blocks world.
  • Doyle, Jon (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-11)
    This paper discusses a number of problems faced in communicating expertise and common sense to a computer, and the approaches taken by several current knowledge representation languages towards solving these problems. The ...
  • Levin, Anat; Glasner, Daniel; Xiong, Ying; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William; Matusik, Wojciech; Zickler, Todd (2013-04-24)
    This manuscript completes the analysis of our SIGGRAPH 2013 paper "Fabricating BRDFs at High Spatial Resolution Using Wave Optics" in which photolithography fabrication was used for manipulating reflectance effects. While ...
  • Morrison, Jerry Howard (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-05)
    PLASMA (for PLAnner-like System Modeled on Actors) is a message-passing computer language based on actor semantics. Since every event in the system is the receipt of a message actor by a target actor, a complete history ...

    Winston, Patrick H. (1968-08-01)
    This memo originally had two parts. The first dealt with certain deficiencies in an early version of Guzman's program, SEE. The problems have been fixed, and the corresponding discussion has been dropped from this ...
  • Sidiroglou-Douskos, Stelios; Davis, Eli; Rinard, Martin (2015-04-14)
    We present a new horizontal code transfer technique, program fracture and recombination, for automatically replacing, deleting, and/or combining code from multiple applications. Benefits include automatic generation of new ...
  • Buelthoff, Heinrich H.; Edelman, Shimon Y.; Tarr, Michael J. (1994-04-01)
    We discuss a variety of object recognition experiments in which human subjects were presented with realistically rendered images of computer-generated three-dimensional objects, with tight control over stimulus shape, ...
  • Fleming, Roland W.; Dror, Ron O.; Adelson, Edward H. (2001-10-21)
    Under normal viewing conditions, humans find it easy to distinguish between objects made out of different materials such as plastic, metal, or paper. Untextured materials such as these have different surface reflectance ...
  • Dig, Danny; Marrero, John; Ernst, Michael D. (2008-09-05)
    For several decades, programmers have relied onMooreâ s Law to improve the performance of their softwareapplications. From now on, programmers need to programthe multi-cores if they want to deliver efficient code. Inthe ...
  • Smith, Brian Cantwell (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-11)
    In the summer of 1978 a decision was made to devote a special issue of the SIGART newsletter to the subject of knowledge representation research. To assist in ascertaining the current state of people's thinking on this ...
  • Liang, Percy; Srebro, Nati (2005-01-03)
    Current approximation algorithms for maximum weight {\em hypertrees} find heavy {\em windmill farms}, and are based on the fact that a constant ratio (for constant width $k$) of the weight of a $k$-hypertree can be captured ...
  • Danofsky, Murray Elias (1976-02-01)
    This paper presents a system for understanding the concept of near and far, weighing such factors as purpose of the judgement, dimensions of the objects, absolute size of the distance, and size of the distance relative ...
  • Hollerbach, John (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-07)
    Handwriting is shown to be composed mainly of cup-shaped strokes lasting approximately 200 msec. The strokes are based on a hexagonal pattern, with quantized slopes and lengths. Each side of the hexagon is produced by a ...
  • Teevan, Jaime (2004-06-18)
    This paper investigates how people return to information in a dynamic information environment. For example, a person might want to return to Web content via a link encountered earlier on a Web page, only to learn that the ...

  • Speciner, Michael (1972-12-01)
    The GAS program is a display simulation of a 2 dimensional ideal gas. Barriers, or walls, are line segments, and molecules, alias particles or balls, are circles. Collisions occur between balls and other balls as well ...
  • Vutukuru, Mythili; Valiant, Paul; Kopparty, Swastik; Balakrishnan, Hari (2005-08-03)
    The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the current inter domain routing protocol in the Internet, has two modes of operation: eBGP (External BGP), used to exchange routing information between autonomous systems, and iBGP ...
  • Chapman, David (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-10)
    This document presumptuously purports to explain how to do research. We give heuristics that may be useful in pickup up specific skills needed for research (reading, writing, programming) and for understanding and enjoying ...
  • Maes, Pattie (1989-10-01)
    This paper presents a novel approach to the problem of action selection for an autonomous agent. An agent is viewed as a collection of competence modules. Action selection is modeled as an emergent property of an ...
  • Dowson, Mark (1971-04-01)
    This memo is intended to get very new users started on the MAC AI system. It presents some simple rituals for making and editing fields, getting print outs, making microtapes, and so on. Most of the rituals given are not ...
