  • Minsky, Marvin (1967-02-01)
    An interesting practical and theoretical problem is putting bounds on how much computation one needs to find the stereo-disparity between two narrow-angle stereo scenes. By narrow angle I mean situations wherein the angle ...
  • Lee, Hsien-Che (1988-08-01)
    \0\05{\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0 a uniform wall illuminated by a spot light often gives a strong impression of the illuminant color. How can it be possible to know if it is a white wall illuminated by yellow light or a yellow ...
  • Dengler, Joachim (1990-10-01)
    A new noniterative approach to determine displacement vector fields with discontinuities is described. In order to overcome the limitations of current methods, the problem is regarded as a general modelling problem. ...
  • An, Chae H.; Atkeson, Christopher G.; Hollerbach, John M. (1986-02-01)
    A method of estimating the mass, the location of center of mass, and the moments of inertia of each rigid body link of a robot during general manipulator movement is presented. The algorithm is derived from the ...
  • Brunelli, Roberto (1994-11-01)
    In this paper three problems related to the analysis of facial images are addressed: the illuminant direction, the compensation of illumination effects and, finally, the recovery of the pose of the face, restricted to ...
  • Smoliar, Stephen (1967-04-01)
    The electronic medium has vastly increased the amount of material available to the contemporary composer. The various pieces of electronic equipment available today allow one to produce any conceivable sound; yet ...
  • Smoliar, Stephen (1967-09-01)
    EUTERPE (Ai memo no. 129) was designed as a "real-time music program" which would interpret music described as "voice-programs" in DDT. These voice-programs consisted of note words, description of tones to be sounded, and ...
  • Weir, Sylvia (1979-10-01)
    The work of the Cerebral Palsy project (members: Seymour Papert, Sylvia Weir, Jose Valente and Gary Drescher) over the past eighteen months is summarized, and the next phase of activity is outlined. The issues to be ...
  • Yokono, Jerry Jun; Poggio, Tomaso (2004-03-24)
    Local descriptors are increasingly used for the task of object recognition because of their perceived robustness with respect to occlusions and to global geometrical deformations. We propose a performance criterion for a ...
  • Marr, D.; Hildreth, E.; Poggio, T. (1979-08-01)
    Recent studies in psychophysics and neurophysiology suggest that the human visual system utilizes a range of different size or spatial frequency tuned mechanisms in its processing of visual information. It has been ...
  • Stevens, Kent A. (1981-06-01)
    Subjective contours, according to one theory, outline surfaces that are apparently interposed between the viewer and background (because of the disruption of background figures, sudden termination of lines, and other ...
  • Eisenstein, Jacob (2003-10-28)
    In this paper, I describe the application of genetic programming to evolve a controller for a robotic tank in a simulated environment. The purpose is to explore how genetic techniques can best be applied to produce ...
  • Giese, M.A.; Xie, X. (2002-08-01)
    Different theoretical models have tried to investigate the feasibility of recurrent neural mechanisms for achieving direction selectivity in the visual cortex. The mathematical analysis of such models has been restricted ...
  • Beymer, David; Shashua, Amnon; Poggio, Tomaso (1993-11-01)
    Image analysis and graphics synthesis can be achieved with learning techniques using directly image examples without physically-based, 3D models. In our technique: -- the mapping from novel images to a vector of "pose" ...
  • Sung, Kah Kay; Poggio, Tomaso (1995-01-24)
    We present an example-based learning approach for locating vertical frontal views of human faces in complex scenes. The technique models the distribution of human face patterns by means of a few view-based "face'' and ...
  • Palmucci, Jeff; Waldsburger, Carl; Duis, David; Krause, Paul (1990-08-01)
    This paper presents a concurrent interpreter for a general-purpose concurrent logic programming language, Guarded Horn Clauses (GHC). Unlike typical implementations of GHC in logic programming languages, the interpreter ...
  • Chan, Nicholas T.; Dahan, Ely; Lo, Andrew W.; Poggio, Tomaso (2001-07-01)
    Market prices are well known to efficiently collect and aggregate diverse information regarding the value of commodities and assets. The role of markets has been particularly suitable to pricing financial securities. This ...
  • Davis; Randall (1982-06-01)
    Work on Expert Systems has received extensive attention recently, prompting growing interest in a range of environments. Much has been made of the basic concept and the rule-based system approach typically used to ...
  • Russell, S. R. (1959-03-01)
    ERROR is a routine to provide a common location for all routines. Its celling sequence is: SXD SERROR,4 TSX SERROR+1,4 The above is normally followed immediately by up to 20 registers of BCD remarks terminated by a word ...
  • Kleer, Johan de; Doyle, Jon; Steele, Guy L., Jr.; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1977-06-01)
    The construction of expert problem-solving systems requires the development of techniques for using modular representations of knowledge without encountering combinatorial explosions in the solution effort. This report ...
