  • Clinger, William; Rees, Jonathan (1991-11-01)
    Data and procedures and the values they amass, Higher-order functions to combine and mix and match, Objects with their local state, the message they pass, A property, a package, the control of point for a catch- In the ...

  • Martin, William; Hart, Timothy (1964-04-01)
    This memo describes changes to the LISP system by several people. The changes reduce printout and give the user more control over it. They also make it possible for LISP to communicate with the teletype and the disk. The ...
  • Yuille, Alan; Ullman, Shimon (1987-11-01)
    sMany theories of structure from motion divide the process into twosparts which are solved using different assumptions. Smoothness of thesvelocity field is often assumed to solve the motion correspondencesproblem, and then ...
  • Rakhlin, Alexander; Panchenko, Dmitry; Mukherjee, Sayan (2004-01-27)
    In this paper we focus on the problem of estimating a bounded density using a finite combination of densities from a given class. We consider the Maximum Likelihood Procedure (MLE) and the greedy procedure described by ...
  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1982-12-01)
    The industrial robot's principal advantage over traditional automation is programmability. Robots can perform arbitrary sequences of pre-stored motions or of motions computed as functions of sensory input. This paper ...

  • Brooks, Rodney A. (1989-02-01)
    Most animals have significant behavioral expertise built in without having to explicitly learn it all from scratch. This expertise is a product of evolution of the organism; it can be viewed as a very long term form ...
  • Nelson, Stewart; Levitt, Michael (1969-02-01)
    This document describes a set of routines which have been provided at both the monitor and user level to facilitate the following operations: 1) Vidissector input; 2) Pot Box input; 3) Arm motion; and 4) Display list ...
  • Beal, Jacob (2003-05-01)
    For a very large network deployed in space with only nearby nodes able to talk to each other, we want to do tasks like robust routing and data storage. One way to organize the network is via a hierarchy, but hierarchies ...
  • Brooks, Rodney A. (1985-09-01)
    We describe a new architecture for controlling mobile robots. Layers of control system are built to let the robot operate at increasing levels of competence. Layers are made up of asynchronous modules which communicate ...
  • Leopold, D.A.; Fitzgibbons, J.C.; Logothetis, N.K. (1995-11-01)
    When stimuli presented to the two eyes differ considerably, stable binocular fusion fails, and the subjective percept alternates between the two monocular images, a phenomenon known as binocular rivalry. The influence of ...
  • Yip, Andrew; Sinha, Pawan (2001-12-13)
    One of the key challenges in face perception lies in determining the contribution of different cues to face identification. In this study, we focus on the role of color cues. Although color appears to be a salient attribute ...
  • Sinha, Pawan; Torralba, Antonio (2001-08-01)
    Brightness judgments are a key part of the primate brain's visual analysis of the environment. There is general consensus that the perceived brightness of an image region is based not only on its actual luminance, but also ...
  • Sussman, Gerald Jay; Wisdom, Jack (2002-11-01)
    Classical mechanics is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with fallacious reasoning or without real understanding. To address this problem we use computational techniques to communicate ...
  • Brady, Michael; Horn, Berthold K.P. (1981-11-01)
    The use of rotationally symmetric operators in vision is reviewed and conditions for rotational symmetry are derived for linear and quadratic forms in the first and second partial directional derivatives of a function ...
  • Yokono, Jerry Jun; Poggio, Tomaso (2004-04-27)
    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. Such a descriptor--based on a set of ...
  • Ho, Purdy (2001-05-31)
    In this report, a face recognition system that is capable of detecting and recognizing frontal and rotated faces was developed. Two face recognition methods focusing on the aspect of pose invariance are presented and ...
  • Routines 
    Agre, Philip E. (1985-05-01)
    Regularities in the word give rise to regularities in the way which we deal with the world. That is to say, we fall into routines. I have been studying the phenomena of routinization, the process by which institutionalized ...
  • Knight, Thomas F., Jr.; Sobalvarro, Patrick G. (1990-09-01)
    Banyan networks comprise a large class of networks that have been used for interconnection in large-scale multiprocessors and telephone switching systems. Regular variants of Banyan networks, such as delta and butterfly ...
