  • Syeda-Mahmood, Tanveer Fathima (1992-02-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of determining which regions in the image are likely to come from a single object. In this paper we present an approach that extracts ...
  • Tanveer, S.; Mahmood, F. (1993-05-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of isolating regions in an image that are likely to come from a single object. This isolation can be either based solely on image data ...
  • Spertus, Ellen (1990-05-01)
    The dataflow model of computation exposes and exploits parallelism in programs without requiring programmer annotation; however, instruction- level dataflow is too fine-grained to be efficient on general-purpose ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-09-01)
    The internal representations of the various MacLISP data types are presented and discussed. Certain implementation tradeoffs are considered. The ultimate decisions on these tradeoffs are discussed in the light of ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-03-08)
    This paper presents a solution to the problem of determining the distribution of an absorbing substance inside a non-opaque non-scattering body from images or ray samplings. It simultaneously solves the problem of determining ...
  • Osman, Eric (1971-09-01)
    This memo describes the version of DDT used as the command level of the A.I. Laboratory Time Sharing System (ITS). Besides the usual program control, examination, and modification features, this DDT provides many ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-10-01)
    Folklore states that GOTO statements are 'cheap', while procedure calls are 'expensive'. This myth is largely a result of poorly designed language implementations. The historical growth of this myth is considered. Both ...
  • Lee, Jintae (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1989-08)
    In this report, I describe a language, called Decision Representation Language (DRL), for representing the qualitative aspects of decision making processes such as the alternatives being evaluated, goals to satisfy, and ...
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1967-09-01)
    This memorandum describes a program which finds bodies in a scene, presumably formed by 3-dimensional objects, with some of them perhaps not completely visible.
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1969-01-01)
    The program described here takes as its input a collection of lines, vertices and surfaces describing a scene, and analyzes the scene into a composition of three-dimensional objects. The program does not need to know the ...
  • Ristad, Eric Sven (1986-04-01)
    This paper is a formal analysis of whether generalized phrase structure grammar's (GPSG) weak context-free generative power will allow it to achieve three of its central goals: (1) to characterize all and only the ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1980-08-01)
    The constraint paradigm is a model of computation in which values are deduced whenever possible, under the limitation that deductions be local in a certain sense. One may visualize a constraint 'program' as a network ...
  • Gajos, Krzysztof; Shrobe, Howard (2003-06-01)
    The dream of pervasive computing is slowly becoming a reality. A number of projects around the world are constantly contributing ideas and solutions that are bound to change the way we interact with our environments and ...
  • Dally, William J.; McMillan, Leonard; Bishop, Gary; Fuchs, Henry (1997-05-02)
    This paper introduces the delta tree, a data structure that represents an object using a set of reference images. It also describes an algorithm for generating arbitrary re-projections of an object by traversing its ...
  • Drescher, Gary L. (1988-12-01)
    An artificial universe is defined that has entirely deterministic laws with exclusively local interactions, and that exhibits the fundamental quantum uncertainty phenomenon: superposed states mutually interfere, but ...
  • Mellor, J.P.; Teller, Seth; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1996-11-01)
    Recovering three-dimensional information from two-dimensional images is the fundamental goal of stereo techniques. The problem of recovering depth (three-dimensional information) from a set of images is essentially the ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (1977-09-01)
    Methods for calculating the distribution of absorption densities in a cross section through an object from density integrals along rays in the plane of the cross section are well known, but are restricted to particular ...
  • Zabih, Ramin (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1988-08)
    Non-deterministic LISP can be used to describe a search problem without specifying the method used to solve the problem. We show that SCHEMER, a non-deterministic dialect of SCHEME, can support dependency-directed backtracking ...
  • Kuper, Ron I. (1989-05-01)
    Software bugs are violated specifications. Debugging is the process that culminates in repairing a program so that it satisfies its specification. An important part of debugging is localization, whereby the smallest ...
  • Shrobe, Howard Elliot (1979-04-01)
    Artificial Intelligence research involves the creation of extremely complex programs which must possess the capability to introspect, learn, and improve their expertise. Any truly intelligent program must be able to ...
