  • CHAR PLOT 
    Sordillo, Donald (1966-10-01)
    CHAR PLOT is a routine which enables one to use the Calcomp plotter as an output typewriter. This program is stored as CHPLOT BIN [English CHAR PLOT]. In use a code, representing a character of command as defined in Appendix ...
  • CHAR PLOT 
    Sordillo, Donald (1967-03-01)
    CHAR PLOT is a routine which enables one to use the CalComp plotter as a versatile output device. It is presently available as CHPLOT BIN (English CHAR PLOT) on tape MS 3. The program CHAR PLOT is normally called by a PUSHJ ...
  • Williams, Brian C. (1985-10-01)
    Intelligent agents in the physical world must work from incomplete information due to partial knowledge and limited resources. An agent copes with these limitations by applying rules of conjecture to make reasonable ...
  • Bobick, Aaron; Richards, Whitman (1986-06-01)
    Consider a world of 'objects.' Our goal is to place these objects into categories that are useful to the observer using sensory data. One criterion for utility is that the categories allow the observer to infer the ...
  • Chang, Pyung H. (1986-03-01)
    A closed form equation for inverse kinematics of manipulator with redundancy is derived, using the Lagrangian multiplier method. The proposed equation is proved to provide the exact equilibrium state for the resolved ...
  • CNTOUR 
    Krakauer, Lawrence J. (1968-01-01)
    The CNTOUR program plots an intensity relief map of an image which is read from tape, disc, or from either vidisector camera. It is used to examine vidisector images. It may also be used as a general purpose aiming, ...
  • Lorigo, Liana M.; Faugeras, Olivier; Grimson, W.E.L.; Keriven, Renaud; Kikinis, Ron; Westin, Carl-Fredrik (1999-08-11)
    Automatic and semi-automatic magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)s segmentation techniques can potentially save radiologists larges amounts of time required for manual segmentation and cans facilitate further data analysis. ...
  • Richards, Whitman; Hoffman, Donald D. (1984-05-01)
    Codons are simple primitives for describing plane curves. They thus are primarily image-based descriptors. Yet they have the power to capture important information about the 3-D world, such as making part boundaries ...
  • Canny, John (1984-10-01)
    We consider the problem of moving a three dimensional solid object among polyhedral obstacles. The traditional formulation of configuration space for this problem uses three translational parameters and three angles ...
  • Rubin, John M.; Richards, W.A. (1981-05-01)
    Marr has emphasized the difficulty in understanding a biological system or its components without some idea of its goals. In this paper, a preliminary goal for color vision is proposed and analyzed. That goal is to ...
  • Rubin, John M.; Richards, W.A. (1984-05-01)
    We argue that one of the early goals of color vision is to distinguish one kind of material from another. Accordingly, we show that when a pair of image regions is such that one region has greater intensity at one wavelength ...
  • Grimson, W. Eric L. (1989-05-01)
    Many recognition systems use constrained search to locate objects in cluttered environments. Earlier analysis showed that the expected search is quadratic in the number of model and data features, if all the data comes ...
  • Grimson, W. Eric L. (1986-03-01)
    The problem of recognizing what objects are where in the workspace of a robot can be cast as one of searching for a consistent matching between sensory data elements and equivalent model elements. In principle, this ...
  • Grimson, W. Eric L. (1988-02-01)
    When clustering techniques such as the Hough transform are used to isolate likely subspaces of the search space, empirical performance in cluttered scenes improves considerably. In this paper we establish formal bounds ...
  • Stansfield, James L. (1977-08-01)
    The intelligent support system project is developing a program (COMEX) to assist a commodities expert in tasks such as interpreting data, predicting trends and intelligent noticing. Large amounts of qualitative and ...
  • Bobrow, Daniel G. (1965-02-01)
    The purpose of COMIT feature is to facilitate certain types of list manipulations in LISP II. This feature is a syntactic convenience, rather than an extension of the semantics of LISP. It permits the programmer to test ...
  • Geiser, James R. (1974-05-01)
    This paper constitutes a summary of a seminar entitled "Commenting Proofs" given a the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory during the spring of 1974. The work is concerned with new syntactic structures in formal proofs ...
  • Weld, Daniel S. (1987-11-01)
    Comparative analysis is the problem of predicting how a system will react to perturbations in its parameters, and why. For example, comparative analysis could be asked to explain why the period of an oscillating ...
  • Mataric, Maja (1991-10-01)
    This paper analyzes the suitability of reinforcement learning (RL) for both programming and adapting situated agents. We discuss two RL algorithms: Q-learning and the Bucket Brigade. We introduce a special case of the ...
  • Patterson, Michael S.; Hewitt, Carl E. (1978-05-01)
    While we may have the intuitive idea of one programming language having greater power than another, or of some subset of a language being an adequate "core" for that language, we find when we try to formalize this ...
