  • Syeda-Mahmood, Tanveer Fathima (1992-02-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of determining which regions in the image are likely to come from a single object. In this paper we present an approach that extracts ...
  • Tanveer, S.; Mahmood, F. (1993-05-01)
    A key problem in model-based object recognition is selection, namely, the problem of isolating regions in an image that are likely to come from a single object. This isolation can be either based solely on image data ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-09-01)
    The internal representations of the various MacLISP data types are presented and discussed. Certain implementation tradeoffs are considered. The ultimate decisions on these tradeoffs are discussed in the light of ...
  • Osman, Eric (1971-09-01)
    This memo describes the version of DDT used as the command level of the A.I. Laboratory Time Sharing System (ITS). Besides the usual program control, examination, and modification features, this DDT provides many ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1977-10-01)
    Folklore states that GOTO statements are 'cheap', while procedure calls are 'expensive'. This myth is largely a result of poorly designed language implementations. The historical growth of this myth is considered. Both ...
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1967-09-01)
    This memorandum describes a program which finds bodies in a scene, presumably formed by 3-dimensional objects, with some of them perhaps not completely visible.
  • Guzman, Adolfo (1969-01-01)
    The program described here takes as its input a collection of lines, vertices and surfaces describing a scene, and analyzes the scene into a composition of three-dimensional objects. The program does not need to know the ...
  • Ristad, Eric Sven (1986-04-01)
    This paper is a formal analysis of whether generalized phrase structure grammar's (GPSG) weak context-free generative power will allow it to achieve three of its central goals: (1) to characterize all and only the ...
  • Gajos, Krzysztof; Shrobe, Howard (2003-06-01)
    The dream of pervasive computing is slowly becoming a reality. A number of projects around the world are constantly contributing ideas and solutions that are bound to change the way we interact with our environments and ...
  • Dally, William J.; McMillan, Leonard; Bishop, Gary; Fuchs, Henry (1997-05-02)
    This paper introduces the delta tree, a data structure that represents an object using a set of reference images. It also describes an algorithm for generating arbitrary re-projections of an object by traversing its ...
  • Drescher, Gary L. (1988-12-01)
    An artificial universe is defined that has entirely deterministic laws with exclusively local interactions, and that exhibits the fundamental quantum uncertainty phenomenon: superposed states mutually interfere, but ...
  • Mellor, J.P.; Teller, Seth; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1996-11-01)
    Recovering three-dimensional information from two-dimensional images is the fundamental goal of stereo techniques. The problem of recovering depth (three-dimensional information) from a set of images is essentially the ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (1977-09-01)
    Methods for calculating the distribution of absorption densities in a cross section through an object from density integrals along rays in the plane of the cross section are well known, but are restricted to particular ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (1963-12-01)
    Derivator is a PDP-1 program for examining the solutions to differential equations by inspection of a visual display of trajectories. Because fixed-point arithmetic is used (in order to maintain visual display speeds), ...
  • Brady, Michael; Ponce, Jean; Yuille, Alan; Asada, Haruo (1985-01-01)
    This paper continues our work on visual representation s of three-dimensional surfaces [Brady and Yuille 1984b]. The theoretical component of our work is a study of classes of surface curves as a source of constraint ...
  • Gresser, Jean-Yves (1968-09-01)
    The immediate purpose of the research on Intelligent Automata is to have an autonomous machine able to understand uncomplicated commands and to manipulate simple objects without human intervention. This thesis is concerned ...
  • Pitman, Kent (1984-09-01)
    In this paper we discuss the problems associated with the description and manipulation of large systems when their sources are not maintained as single fields. We show why and how tools that address these issues, such ...
  • Krakauer, Lawrence J. (1966-11-01)
    The CNTOUR program plots an intensity relief map of an image which is read from the vidisector camera (TV-B). It may be used as a general purpose aiming, monitoring and focusing program, especially for high-contrast images, ...
  • Eisenberg, Michael (1989-09-01)
    The Kineticist's Workbench is a computer program currently under development whose purpose is to help chemists understand, analyze, and simplify complex chemical reaction mechanisms. This paper discusses one module ...
  • Christian, Andrew (1989-03-01)
    This paper provides insights into the problems of designing a robot with joint and link flexibility. The relationship between the deflection of the robot under gravity is correlated with the fundamental frequency of ...
