  • Smith, David A. (1979-05-01)
    The processes involved in vision, manipulation, and spatial reasoning depend greatly on the particular representation of three-dimensional objects used. A novel representation, based on concepts of differential geometry, ...
  • Kornfeld, William A. (1979-12-01)
    Parallel processing as a conceptual aid in the design of programs for problem solving applications is developed. A pattern directed invocation language know as Ether is introduced. Ether embodies tow notions in language ...
  • Kennedy, Thomas R., III (1987-05-01)
    Direct, construct by construct translation from one high level language to another often produces convoluted, unnatural, and unreadable results, particularly when the source and target languages support different ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P.; Bachman, Brett L. (1977-08-01)
    A number of image analysis tasks can benefit from registration of the image with a model of the surface being imaged. Automatic navigation using visible light or radar images requires exact alignment of such images ...
  • Smoliar, Stephen W. (1971-10-01)
    This memo describes the practical implementation of programs written in the language EUTERPE. Details of this language are given in the author's thesis (A Parallel Processing Model of Musical Structures) and will not ...
  • Singer, Neil C.; Seering, Warren P. (1988-02-01)
    The intent of this research is to study the dynamic behavior of a solid body resting on a moving surface. Results of the study are then used to propose methods for controlling the orientation of parts in preparation ...
  • Eastlake, Donald E. (1974-04-01)
    UT is a user telnet program designed to run under the ITS time sharing system. It implements the relatively recent ARPA network negotiating protocol for telnet connections.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Logothetis, N.K.; Pauls, J.; Poggio, T. (1994-04-01)
    How does the brain recognize three-dimensional objects? We trained monkeys to recognize computer rendered objects presented from an arbitrarily chosen training view, and subsequently tested their ability to generalize ...
  • Hewitt, Carl (1976-12-01)
    The purpose of this paper is to discuss some organizational aspects of programs using the actor model of computation. In this paper we present an approach to modelling intelligence in terms of a society of communicating ...
  • Geiger, Gad; Lettvin, Jerome Y. (1997-06-01)
    We describe here, briefly, a perceptual non-reading measure which reliably distinguishes between dyslexic persons and ordinary readers. More importantly, we describe a regimen of practice with which dyslexics learn a ...
