  • Shashua, Amnon; Toelg, Sebastian (1994-06-01)
    The conceptual component of this work is about "reference surfaces'' which are the dual of reference frames often used for shape representation purposes. The theoretical component of this work involves the question ...
  • Williams, Brian C. (1984-07-01)
    With the push towards sub-micron technology, transistor models have become increasingly complex. The number of components in integrated circuits has forced designer's efforts and skills towards higher levels of design. ...
  • Kleer, Johan De (1975-12-01)
    This thesis investigates what knowledge is necessary to solve mechanics problems. A program NEWTON is described which understands and solves problems in mechanics mini-world of objects moving on surfaces. Facts and ...
  • Weinshall, Daphna (1987-12-01)
    Obtaining exact depth from binocular disparities is hard if camera calibration is needed. We will show that qualitative depth information can be obtained from stereo disparities with almost no computations and with ...
  • Brown, Allen (1976-11-01)
    This report investigates some techinques appropriate to representing the knowledge necessary for understanding a class of electronic machines -- radio receivers. A computational performance model - WATSON - is presented. ...
  • Brown, Allen L. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1974-03)
    A research program is proposed, the goal of which is a computer system that embodies the knowledge and methodology of a competent radio repairman.
  • Forbus, Kenneth D. (1983-05-01)
    Things move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, break and boil. These and other things that happen to cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand common ...
  • Forbus, Kenneth D. (1984-07-01)
    Objects move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, compress and boil. These and other things that cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand common sense ...
  • Marr, David; Pettigrew, J. D. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1973-12)
    A quantitative summary is given of the computation that is performed by visual cortex in the cat. Part of this computation seems to be achieved using a sample-and-average technique; some quantitative features of this ...
  • Ward, Allen C.; Seering, Warren (1989-01-01)
    This paper presents the ideas underlying a program that takes as input a schematic of a mechanical or hydraulic power transmission system, plus specifications and a utility function, and returns catalog numbers from ...
  • Moses, Joel (1967-03-01)
    One of the most widely used routines in an algebraic manipulation system is a polynomial manipulation package (1,2,3). The crucial operation in such routines is the extraction of the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1978-05-01)
    We have developed a compiler for the lexically-scoped dialect of LISP known as SCHEME. The compiler knows relatively little about specific data manipulation primitives such as arithmetic operators, but concentrates ...
  • Hutchinson, James M. (1993-12-01)
    Nonlinear multivariate statistical techniques on fast computers offer the potential to capture more of the dynamics of the high dimensional, noisy systems underlying financial markets than traditional models, while ...
  • Beal, Jacob; Gilbert, Seth (2003-12-17)
    We present an algorithm to store data robustly in a large, geographically distributed network by means of localized regions of data storage that move in response to changing conditions. For example, data might migrate away ...
  • Taycher, Leonid; Darrell, Trevor (2001-09-01)
    Visibility constraints can aid the segmentation of foreground objects observed with multiple range images. In our approach, points are defined as foreground if they can be determined to occlude some {em empty space} in the ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1977-09)
    A representation for numbers using two computer words is discussed, where the value represented is the ratio of the corresponding integers. This allows for better dynamic range and relative accuracy than single-precision ...
  • Solo, David M. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1986-08)
    The automatic layout of unbounded n-ary tree structures is a problem of subjectively meshing two independent goals: clarity and space efficiency. This paper presents a minimal set of subjective aesthetics which insures ...
  • Lieberman, Henry; Hewitt, Carl (1981-10-01)
    In previous heap storage systems, the cost of creating objects and garbage collection is independent of the lifetime of the object. Since objects with short lifetimes account for a large portion of storage use, it's ...
  • Gordon, Steven J.; Seering, Warren P. (1988-05-01)
    A light stripe vision system is used to measure the location of polyhedral features of parts from a single frame of video camera output. Issues such as accuracy in locating the line segments of intersection in the image ...
  • Brown, Richard (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1976-10)
