  • Michalski, Ryszard S.; Winston, Patrick H. (1985-08-01)
    Variable precision logic is concerned with problems of reasoning with incomplete information and under time constraints. It offers mechanisms for handling trade-offs between the precision of inferences and the ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (1985-03-01)
    We develop a systematic approach to the discovery of parallel iterative schemes for solving the shape-from-shading problem on a grid. A standard procedure for finding such schemes is outlines, and subsequently used ...
  • Somers, David C.; Todorov, Emanuel V.; Siapas, Athanassios G.; Sur, Mriganka (1996-01-18)
    Integration of inputs by cortical neurons provides the basis for the complex information processing performed in the cerebral cortex. Here, we propose a new analytic framework for understanding integration within ...
  • Beymer, David (1995-09-01)
    The correspondence problem in computer vision is basically a matching task between two or more sets of features. In this paper, we introduce a vectorized image representation, which is a feature-based representation where ...
  • Sung, Kah-Kay (1992-01-01)
    Surface (Lambertain) color is a useful visual cue for analyzing material composition of scenes. This thesis adopts a signal processing approach to color vision. It represents color images as fields of 3D vectors, from ...
  • Abelson, Harold; diSessa, Andrea; Rudolph, Lee (1974-12-01)
    We develop a theory of orbits for the inverse-square central force law which differs considerably from the usual deductive approach. In particular, we make no explicit use of calculus. By beginning with qualitative ...
  • Jones, Douglas A.; Berwick, Robert C.; Cho, Franklin; Khan, Zeeshan; Kohl, Karen T.; Nomura, Naoyuki; Radhakrishnan, Anand; Sauerland, Ulrich; Ulicny, Brian (1996-05-06)
    In this report, we investigate the relationship between the semantic and syntactic properties of verbs. Our work is based on the English Verb Classes and Alternations of (Levin, 1993). We explore how these classes are ...
  • Lepinski, Matt; Micali, Silvio; Izmalkov, Sergei (2007-12-05)
    We put forward the notion of a verifiably secure device, in essence a stronger notion of secure computation, and achieve it in the ballot-box model. Verifiably secure devices1. Provide a perfect solution to the problem of ...
  • Kim, Deokhwan; Rinard, Martin C. (2010-12-03)
    Commuting operations play a critical role in many parallel computing systems. We present a new technique for verifying commutativity conditions, which are logical formulas that characterize when operations commute. Because ...
  • Carbin, Michael; Misailovic, Sasa; Rinard, Martin (2013-06-19)
    Emerging high-performance architectures are anticipated to contain unreliable components that may exhibit soft errors, which silently corrupt the results of computations. Full detection and recovery from soft errors is ...
  • Feamster, Nick; Balakrishnan, Hari (2004-05-17)
    Several studies have shown that wide-area Internet routing is fragile, with failures occurring for a variety of reasons. Routing fragility is largely due to the flexible and powerful ways in which BGP can be configured to ...
  • Rabbah, Rodric M.; Bratt, Ian; Asanovic, Krste; Agarwal, Anant (2004-06-14)
    For the last several decades, computer architecture research has largely benefited from, and continues to be driven by ad-hoc benchmarking. Often the benchmarks are selected to represent workloads that architects believe ...
  • Nielsen, K.R.K.; Poggio, T. (1983-10-01)
    Most computational theories of stereopsis require a registration stage prior to stereo matching to reduce the matching to a one-dimensional search. Even after registration, it is critical that the stereo matching process ...
  • McDermott, Drew V. (1975-09-01)
    This paper describes the implementation of a typical data-base manaer for an A.I. language like Planner, Conniver, or QA4, and some proposed extensions for applications involving greater quantities of data than usual. ...
  • Zhang, MIchael; Asanovic, Krste (2005-10-10)
    Future CMPs will have more cores and greater onchip cache capacity. The on-chip cache can either be divided into separate private L2 caches for each core, or treated as a large shared L2 cache. Private caches provide low ...
  • Marr, David; Hewitt, Carl (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-11)
    An approach to vision research is described that combines ideas about low level processing with more abstract notions about the representation of knowledge in intelligent systems. A particular problem, of the representation ...
  • Sand, Peter; Teller, Seth (2004-05-11)
    This paper describes a method for bringing two videos (recorded at different times) into spatiotemporal alignment, then comparing and combining corresponding pixels for applications such as background subtraction, compositing, ...
  • Durand, Fredo; Cohen, Michael; Chen, Jiawen; Paris, Sylvain; Wang, Jue; Matusik, Wojciech (2009-12-16)
    This paper introduces the video mesh, a data structure for representing video as 2.5D "paper cutouts." The video mesh allows interactive editing of moving objects and modeling of depth, which enables 3D effects and ...
  • Logothetis, Nikos K.; Vetter, Thomas; Hurlbert, Anya; Poggio, Tomaso (1994-04-01)
    This paper describes the main features of a view-based model of object recognition. The model tries to capture general properties to be expected in a biological architecture for object recognition. The basic module is a ...
  • Sinha, Pawan; Poggio, Tomaso (1995-04-21)
    A persistent issue of debate in the area of 3D object recognition concerns the nature of the experientially acquired object models in the primate visual system. One prominent proposal in this regard has expounded the ...
