  • Steels, Luc (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-10)
    The paper introduces a language for representing knowledge in a declarative form. With this language it is possible to define knowledge about a certain domain by introducing a number of concepts and by specifying their ...
  • Rosenberg, Steven T. (1977-11-01)
    This paper presents an overview of a theory of discourse structure, and discusses a model for assimilating text into a frame-based data structure. The model has been applied to the analysis of news articles. The theory ...
  • Kuipers, Benjamin J. (1975-03-01)
    This paper presents a version of frames suitable for representing knowledge for a class of reconition problems. An initial section gives an intuitive model of frames, and illustrates a number of desirable features of ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1974-06-01)
    This is a partial theory of thinking, combining a number of classical and modern concepts from psychology, linguistics, and AI. Whenever one encounters a new situation (or makes a substantial change in one's viewpoint) ...
  • Fong, Sandiway (1989-12-01)
    In the principles-and-parameters model of language, the principle known as "free indexation'' plays an important part in determining the referential properties of elements such as anaphors and pronominals. This paper ...
  • Roberts, R. Bruce; Goldstein, Ira P. (1977-09-01)
    The Frame Representation Language (FRL) is described. FRL is an adjunct to LISP which implements several representation techniques suggested by Minsky's [75] concept of a frame: defaults, constraints, inheritance, procedural ...
  • Roberts, R. Bruce; Goldstein, Ira P. (1977-07-01)
    The Frame Representation Language (FRL) is an experimental language written to explore the use of frames as a knowledge representation technique. The term 'frame' as used in FRL was inspired by Minsky's [75] development ...
  • Marr, David (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-08)
    The CNS needs to be understood at four nearly independent levels of description: (1) that at which the nature of a computation is expressed; (2) that at which the algorithms that implement a computation are characterised; ...
  • Fitzpatrick, Paul (2003-06-01)
    This thesis presents a perceptual system for a humanoid robot that integrates abilities such as object localization and recognition with the deeper developmental machinery required to forge those competences out of raw ...
  • Yuret, Deniz (1994-05-01)
    The work described in this thesis began as an inquiry into the nature and use of optimization programs based on "genetic algorithms." That inquiry led, eventually, to three powerful heuristics that are broadly applicable ...
  • Pontil, Massimiliano; Rifkin, Ryan; Evgeniou, Theodoros (1998-11-01)
    We study the relation between support vector machines (SVMs) for regression (SVMR) and SVM for classification (SVMC). We show that for a given SVMC solution there exists a SVMR solution which is equivalent for a certain ...
  • Marr, D.; Poggio, T. (1976-05-01)
    The CNS needs to be understood at four nearly independent levels of description: (1) that at which the nature of computation is expressed; (2) that at which the algorithms that implement a computation are characterized; ...
  • Hall, Robert J. (1987-05-01)
    This paper shows that, provided circuits contain no zero-delay loops, a tight relationship, full abstraction, exists between a natural event-based operational semantics for circuits and a natural denotational semantics ...
  • Lathrop, Richard H.; Robert J. Hall,; Kirk, Robert S. (1987-05-01)
    High-level functional (or behavioral) simulation models are difficult, time-consuming, and expensive to develop. We report on a method for automatically generating the program code for a high-level functional simulation ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (1968-01-01)
    Presented here is part of the graduate work that I am doing in the much broader area of protocol analysis (see A.I. memo 137). The goal of the function abstraction is to find a procedure that satisfies a given set of ...
  • Moses, Joel (1970-06-01)
    A problem common to many powerful programming languages arises when one has to determine what values to assign to free variables in functions. Different implementational approaches which attempt to solve the problem are ...
  • Freiling, Michael J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-12)
    This paper discusses methods for enhancing the learning abilities of the Winston program, first by representing functional properties of the objects considered, and secondly by embedding individual models in a hierarchically ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1975-12)
    Details of the kinematics, statics, and dynamics of a particularly simple form of locomotory system are developed to demonstrate the importance of understanding the behavior of the mechanical system interposed between the ...
  • Fukumori, Koji (1980-09-01)
    Traditionally, the compilation of long-term timetables for high-density rail service with multiple classes of trains on the same track is a job for expert people, not computers. We propose an algorithm that uses the ...
  • Marill, Thomas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1989-02)
    The problem of three-dimensional vision is generally formulated as the problem of recovering the three-dimensional scene that caused the image. We have previously presented a certain line-drawing and shown that it has the ...
