  • Hewitt, Carl; Lieberman, Henry (1983-11-01)
    Development of highly intelligent computers requires a conceptual foundation that will overcome the limitations of the von Neumann architecture. Architectures for such a foundation should meet the following design ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr.; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1979-03-01)
    We present a design for a class of computers whose 'instruction sets' are based on LISP. LISP, like traditional stored-program machine languages and unlike most high-level languages, conceptually stores programs and data ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1965-08-01)
    The following scheme for designing a general-purpose manipulator organ has many theoretical attractions. The basic idea is perhaps best conceived as a theoretical, or mathematical, idea. While it is unlikely that the actual ...
  • Flatau, Carl R. (1973-05-01)
    The design of small manipulators is an art requiring proficiency in diverse disciplines. This paper documents some of the general ideas illustrated by a particular design for an arm roughly one quarter human size. The ...
  • Batali, John; Hartheimer, Anne (1980-09-01)
    This manual describes the Design Procedure Language (DPL) for LSI design. DPL creates and maintains a representation of a design in a hierarchically organized, object-oriented LISP data-base. Designing in DPL involves ...
  • Horn, B.K.P.; Woodham, R.J. (1978-03-01)
    Before satellite images obtained with multiple image sensors can be used in image analysis, corrections must be introduced for the differences in transfer functions on these sensors. Methods are here presented for ...
  • Steele, Guy L., Jr. (1980-08-01)
    Linked list structures can be compactly represented by encoding the CDR ("next") pointer in a two-bit field and linearizing list structures as much as possible. This "CDR-coding" technique can save up to 50% on storage ...
  • Schneider, Robert; Riesenhuber, Maximilian (2002-08-01)
    The HMAX model has recently been proposed by Riesenhuber & Poggio as a hierarchical model of position- and size-invariant object recognition in visual cortex. It has also turned out to model successfully a number of ...
  • Farid, Hany (1999-12-01)
    With the rapid increase in low-cost and sophisticated digital technology the need for techniques to authenticate digital material will become more urgent. In this paper we address the problem of authenticating digital ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Sinha, Pawan (2001-11-05)
    The ability to detect faces in images is of critical ecological significance. It is a pre-requisite for other important face perception tasks such as person identification, gender classification and affect analysis. Here ...
  • Ikeuchi; Katsushi (1983-04-01)
    An extended Gaussian image (EGI) is constructed by mapping the surface normals of an object onto the Gussian sphere. The attitude of an object is greatly constrained by the global distribution of EGI mass over the ...
  • Ikeuchi, Katsushi; Nishihara, Keith H.; Horn, Berthold K.P.; Sobalvarro, Patrick; Nagata, Shigemi (1984-08-01)
    This paper describes a system which locates and grasps doughnut shaped parts from a pile. The system uses photometric stereo and binocular stereo as vision input tools. Photometric stereo is used to make surface ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P.; Schunck, Brian G. (1980-04-01)
    Optical flow cannot be computed locally, since only one independent measurement is available from the image sequence at a point, while the flow velocity has two components. A second constraint is needed. A method for ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P.; Woodham, Robert J.; Silverwilliam, M. (1978-08-01)
    Distributions of surface orientation and reflectance factor on the surface of an object can be determined from scene radiances observed by a fixed sensor under varying lighting conditions. Such techniques have potential ...
  • Goldstein, Ira (1978-10-01)
    This paper describes the evolution of a problem solving model over several generations of computer coaches. Computer coaching is a type of computer assisted instruction in which the coaching program observes the ...
  • Bamberger, Jeanne (1972-07-01)
    I would like to report on some ideas we have been developing at M.I.T. for self-paced, independent music study. The aim of our approach is to nurture in students that enigmatic quality called, "musical"-- be it a ...
  • Bamberger, Jeanne (1976-12-01)
    The work reported here is an outgrowth of studies in the development of musical intelligence and learning that have been underway for about four years. Beginning as one of the activities in the LOGO Lab (a part of the ...
  • Bamberger, Jeanne (1975-11-01)
    This paper is the first in a series of monographs which will describe various aspects of the development of musical intelligence.
  • Chang, Pyung H. (1988-02-01)
    We have derived a new performance measure, product of minors of the Jacobian matrix, that tells how far kinematically redundant manipulators are from singularity. It was demonstrated that previously used performance ...
  • Davis; Randall (1984-06-01)
    We describe a system that reasons from first principles, i.e., using knowledge of structure and behavior. The system has been implemented and tested on several examples in the domain of troubleshooting digital electronic ...
