  • Hewitt, Carl; Jong, Peter de (1983-04-01)
    This paper analyzes relationships between the roles of descriptions and actions in large scale, open ended, geographically distributed, concurrent systems. Rather than attempt to deal with the complexities and ambiguities ...
  • Sherman, S. Murray; Koch, Christof (1985-06-01)
    In the mammalian visual system, the lateral geniculate nucleus is commonly thought to act merely as a relay for the transmission of visual information from the retina to the visual cortex, a relay without significant ...
  • Goldstein, Ira P.; Grimson, Eric (1977-02-01)
    Annotated Production Systems provide a procedural model for skill acquisition by augmenting a production model of the skill with formal commentary describing plans, bugs, and interraltionships between various productions. ...
  • Gennert, Michael A. (1984-10-01)
    In this paper we examine the reconstruction of functions of any dimension from hyperplanar projections. This is a generalization of a problem that has generated much interest recently, especially in the field of medical ...
  • Kersten, Daniel; Bulthoff, Heinrich (1991-01-01)
    The judgment of surface attributes such as transparency or opacity is often considered to be a higher-level visual process that would make use of low-level stereo or motion information to tease apart the transparent ...
  • Eberman, Brian; Salisbury, S. Kenneth (1993-03-01)
    The manipulation contact forces convey substantial information about the manipulation state. This paper address the fundamental problem of interpreting the force signals without any additional manipulation context. ...
  • Ikeuchi, Katsushi; Horn, Berthold K.P. (1979-08-01)
    The orientation of patches on the surface of an object can be determined from multiple images taken with different illuminations, but from the same viewing position. This method, referred to as photometric stereo, can ...
  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas; Brooks, Rodney A. (1985-04-01)
    In this paper we propose an architecture for a new task-level system, which we call TWAIN. Task-level programming attempts to simplify the robot programming process but requiring that the user specify only goals for ...
  • Ullman, Shimon (1986-12-01)
    This paper examines the problem of shape-based object recognition and proposes a new approach, the alignment of pictorial descriptions. The first part of the paper reviews general approaches to visual object recognition ...
  • Lathrop, Richard H.; Webster, Teresa A.; Smith, Temple F. (1987-05-01)
    There are many situations in which a very detailed low-level description encodes, through a hierarchical organization, a recognizable higher-order pattern. The macro-molecular structural conformations of proteins exhibit ...
  • Levin, Michael (1961-04-01)
    As of the present, the following parts of LISP 1.5 are working. This is an excerpt from the forth coming LISP 1.5 Programmer's Manual.
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1976-09-01)
    For more than a decade there has been great confusion over the semantics of the standard "arithmetic right shift" instruction. This confusion particularly afflicts authors of computer reference handbooks and of ...
  • Horn, B.K.P. (1969-08-01)
    This is a feature of MIDAS which facilitates the rapid writing and debugging of programs involving much numerical calculation. The statements used are ALGOL-like and easy to interpret.
  • Brady, Michael (1984-02-01)
    Since Robotics is the field concerned with the connection of perception to action, Artificial Intelligence must have a central role in Robotics if the connection is to be intelligent. Artificial Intelligence addresses ...
  • Marr, David (1976-03-01)
    The goal of A.I. is to identify and solve useful information processing problems. In so doing, two types of theory arise. Here, they are labelled Types 1 and 2, and their characteristics are outlined. This discussion creates ...
  • Goldstein, Ira; Papert, Seymour (1975-07-01)
    This paper studies the relationship of Artificial Intelligence to the study of language and the representation of the underlying knowledge which supports the comprehension process. It develops the view that intelligence ...
  • Papert, Seymour (1968-01-01)
    In December 1965 a paper by Hubert Dreyfus revived the old game of generating curious arguments for and against Artificial Intelligence. Dreyfus hit top form in September 1967 with an explanation in the Review of ...
  • Minsky, Marvin; Papert, Seymour (1972-01-01)
    Research at the Laboratory in vision, language, and other problems of intelligence. This report is an attempt to combine a technical progress report with an exposition of our point of view about certain problems in the ...
  • Cohen, Harvey A. (1974-11-01)
    DRAGONs are formidable problems in elementary mechanics not amenable to solution by naﶥ formula cranking. What is the intellectual weaponry one needs to snare a Dragon? To snare a Dragon one brings to mind an heuristic ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr.; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1978-05-01)
    We examine the effects of various language design decisions on theprogramming styles available to a user of the language, with particular emphasis on the ability to incrementally construct modular systems. At each ...
