  • Hoffman, D.D. (1980-12-01)
    The human visual system has the ability o utilize motion information to infer the shapes of surfaces. More specifically, we are able to derive descriptions of rigidly rotating smooth surfaces entirely from the orthographic ...
  • Chan, Nicholas; LeBaron, Blake; Lo, Andrew; Poggio, Tomaso (1998-09-01)
    Various studies of asset markets have shown that traders are capable of learning and transmitting information through prices in many situations. In this paper we replace human traders with intelligent software agents ...
  • Crick, Francis H.C.; Marr, David C.; Poggio, Tomaso (1980-04-01)
    An outline description is given of the experimental work on the visual acuity and hyperacuity of human beings. The very high resolution achieved in hyperacuity corresponds to a fraction of the spacing between adjacent ...
  • Koch, C.; Poggio, T. (1983-03-01)
    Dendritic spines are small twigs on the dendrites of a very large class of neurons in the central nervous system. There are between 10 (3) and 10 (5) spines per neuron, each one including at least one synapse, i.e. a ...
  • Papert, Seymour A.; Weir, Sylvia (1978-09-01)
    In this proposal we describe a technological step towards the realization of INFORMATION PROSTHETICS. Our primary focus is on using rather than making the technology. Specifically, our goal is to transpose for the use ...
  • Robinson, Hugh; Koch, Christof (1984-04-01)
    This proposal addresses some of the biophysical events possibly underlying fast activity-dependent changes in synaptic efficiency. Dendritic spines in the cortex have attracted increased attention over the last years ...
  • Beeler, Michael (1971-08-01)
    The word game, JOTTO, has attracted the interest of several computer programmers over the years, not to mention countless devoted players. Rules are: 1.) Each of 2 players selects a 5-letter English word, or a proper noun, ...
  • Eastlake, D. (1966-09-01)
    A macro has been written for TECO that enables one to insert characters into the buffer as they are typed with the entire current page (if not greater than the display screen"s height in length) always being displayed. ...
  • ONeil, Patrick E. (1971-09-01)
    This is the first section in a proposed monograph on algorithmic complexity theory. Future sections shall include: information Theory as a Proof Technique; Algorithms Using Linear Form Inequalities; Some Probabilistic ...
  • Jones, Thomas L. (1970-04-01)
    INSIM1 is a computer program, written in LISP, which models simple forms of learning analogues to the learning of a human infant during the first few weeks of his life, such as learning to suck the thumb and learning ...
  • Rich, Charles (1987-12-01)
    Inspection methods are a kind of engineering problem solving based on the recognition and use of standard forms or cliches. Examples are given of program analysis, program synthesis and program validation by inspection. ...
  • Dowson, Mark (1971-09-01)
    TJ6 is a program that takes disk files of text and arranges them so that they can be printed out neatly on 8 1/2 by 11 paper, lines justified, pages numbered, and so on. So that TJ6 will know what to do you must insert ...
  • Levin, Beth C. (1979-11-01)
    This paper explores the nature of the underlying representation of a sentence, that representation formulated to make explicit the semantic structure of a sentence as a description of an event. It argues that the ...
  • Moses, Joel (1969-09-01)
    We indicate how to extend the Risch algorithm to handle a class of special functions defined in terms of integrals. Most of the integration machinery for this class of functions is similar to the machinery in the algorithm ...
  • Davis; Randall (1991-11-01)
    In March 1991 the World Intellectual Property Organization held an international symposium attended primarily by lawyers, to discuss the questions that artificial intelligence poses for intellectual property law (i.e., ...
  • Ernst, Michael D. (1992-05-01)
    The future of the software industry is today being shaped in the courtroom. Most discussions of intellectual property to date, however, have been frames as debates about how the existing law --- promulgated long before the ...
  • Abelson, Harold; Eisenberg, Michael; Halfact, Mathew; Katzenelson, Jacob; Sacks, Elisha; Sussman, Gerald Jay; Wisdom, Jack; Yip, Ken (1988-11-01)
    Combining numerical techniques with ideas from symbolic computation and with methods incorporating knowledge of science and mathematics leads to a new category of intelligent computational tools for scientists and ...
  • Brooks, Rodney A. (1991-04-01)
    Computers and Thought are the two categories that together define Artificial Intelligence as a discipline. It is generally accepted that work in Artificial Intelligence over the last thirty years has had a strong influence ...
  • Rich, Charles; Waters, Richard C. (1989-01-01)
    A recognition assistant will help reconstruct the design of a program, given only its source code. A design assistant will assist a programmer by detecting errors and inconsistencies in his design choices and by ...
  • Bulthoff, Heinrich H.; Mallot, Hanspeter A. (1987-05-01)
    A method has been developed to measure the perceived depth of computer generated images of simple solid objects. Computer graphic techniques allow for independent control of different depth queues (stereo, shading, ...
