  • 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 ...
  • Edelman, Shimon; Bulthoff, Heinrich H. (1990-08-01)
    We report a series of psychophysical experiments that explore different aspects of the problem of object representation and recognition in human vision. Contrary to the paradigmatic view which holds that the representations ...
  • Grauman, Kristen; Shakhnarovich, Gregory; Darrell, Trevor (2004-01-28)
    Recovering a volumetric model of a person, car, or other object of interest from a single snapshot would be useful for many computer graphics applications. 3D model estimation in general is hard, and currently requires ...
  • Maron, Oded; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1998-06-01)
    We describe a method called Visible Decomposition for computing collision-free paths in real time through a planar environment with a large number of obstacles. This method divides space into local visibility graphs, ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso (1984-03-01)
    The development of increasingly sophisticated and powerful computers in the last few decades has frequently stimulated comparisons between them and the human brain. Such comparisons will become more earnest as computers ...
  • Batali, John (1981-05-01)
    Some well understood and well justified algorithms for early visual processing must be implemented in hardware for later visual processing to be studied. This paper describes the design and hardware implementation of ...
  • Binford, Thomas O. (1970-07-01)
    Some of the facilities for vision programming are discussed in the format of a user's manual.
  • Minsky, Marvin (1967-02-01)
    This Memo proposes a set of systems programs for vision work. Please comment immediately as we should start on it at once. Values stored outside an array range should have no effect, but set an overflow flag: values read ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso (1982-05-01)
    Nonlinear, local and highly parallel algorithms can perform several simple but important visual computations. Specific classes of algorithms can be considered in an abstract way. I study here the class of polynomial ...
  • Hurlbert, Anya; Poggio, Tomaso (1986-09-01)
    Existing computer programs designed to perform visual recognition of objects suffer from a basic weakness: the inability to spotlight regions in the image that potentially correspond to objects of interest. The brain's ...
  • Gamble, Ed; Poggio, Tomaso (1987-10-01)
    Integration of several vision modules is likely to be one of the keys to the power and robustness of the human visual system. The problem of integrating early vision cues is also emerging as a central problem in current ...
  • Corwin, Daniel W. (1973-03-01)
    This paper discusses the problem of context-free position estimation using a stereo vision system with moveable eyes. Exact and approximate equations are developed linking position to measureable quantities of the ...
  • Edelman, Shimon; Duvdevani-Bar, Sharon (1997-09-01)
    To recognize a previously seen object, the visual system must overcome the variability in the object's appearance caused by factors such as illumination and pose. Developments in computer vision suggest that it may be ...
  • Ullman, Shimon (1983-06-01)
    This paper examines the processing of visual information beyond the creation of the early representations. A fundamental requirement at this level is the capacity to establish visually abstract shape properties and ...
  • Li, Zhaoping (1997-08-01)
    Stimuli outside classical receptive fields significantly influence the neurons' activities in primary visual cortex. We propose that such contextual influences are used to segment regions by detecting the breakdown of ...
  • Ezzat, Tony; Poggio, Tomaso (1999-05-01)
    We present MikeTalk, a text-to-audiovisual speech synthesizer which converts input text into an audiovisual speech stream. MikeTalk is built using visemes, which are a small set of images spanning a large range of mouth ...
  • Taalebinezhaad, M. Ali (1992-10-01)
    A typical robot vision scenario might involve a vehicle moving with an unknown 3D motion (translation and rotation) while taking intensity images of an arbitrary environment. This paper describes the theory and implementation ...
