  • Sachs, Karen, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Cells communicate with other cells, and process cues from their environment, via signaling pathways, in which extracellular cues trigger a cascade of information flow, causing signaling molecules to become chemically, ...
  • Roberts, Jennifer M. (Jennifer Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In the Intensive Care Unit, physicians have access to many types of information when treating patients. Physicians attempt to consider as much of the relevant information as possible, but the astronomically large amounts ...
  • Doshi-Velez, Finale (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Making intelligent decisions from incomplete information is critical in many applications: for example, medical decisions must often be made based on a few vital signs, without full knowledge of a patient's condition, and ...
  • Fox, Emily Beth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The complexity of many dynamical phenomena precludes the use of linear models for which exact analytic techniques are available. However, inference on standard nonlinear models quickly becomes intractable. In some cases, ...
  • Johnson, Matthew J., Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Matthew James) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    There is much interest in the Hierarchical Dirichlet Process Hidden Markov Model (HDP-HMM) as a natural Bayesian nonparametric extension of the ubiquitous Hidden Markov Model for learning from sequential and time-series ...
  • Michini, Bernard (Bernard J.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Learning from demonstration provides an attractive solution to the problem of teaching autonomous systems how to perform complex tasks. Demonstration opens autonomy development to non-experts and is an intuitive means of ...
  • Cosman, Eric Richard, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    A hierarchical model based on the Multivariate Autoregessive (MAR) process is proposed to jointly model functional neuroimaging time series collected from multiple subjects, and to characterize the distribution of MAR ...
  • Baker, Chris L. (Chris Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis proposes a computational framework for understanding human Theory of Mind (ToM): our conception of others' mental states, how they relate to the world, and how they cause behavior. Humans use ToM to predict ...
  • Johnson, Matthew James, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    With large and growing datasets and complex models, there is an increasing need for scalable Bayesian inference. We describe two lines of work to address this need. In the first part, we develop new algorithms for inference ...
  • Bhat, Arjun (Arjun Devadas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis focuses on the city of Mumbai, and evolves the notion of how "critical adjacency" has been instrumental in guiding the city's urban transformations into modernity. Presently, Mumbai experiences some of the ...
  • Khodosh, Rita (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    BEACH proteins comprise an evolutionarily conserved family characterized by the presence of a BEACH (Beige and Chediak-Higashi) domain of unknown function. They have been shown to play a role in a number of important ...
  • Chen, Carl Gang, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    We are developing a scanning beam interference lithography (SBIL) system. SBIL is capable of producing large-area linear diffraction gratings that are phase-accurate to the nanometer level. Such gratings may enable new ...
  • White, Susan Marie, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Gray, David Charles (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1992)
  • Middlebrook, Danica Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Unmanned underwater vehicles have various missions within civilian, military and academic sectors. They have the ability to explore areas unavailable to manned assets and to perform duties that are risky to humans. In ...
  • Cao, Bing, S.M. Sloan School of Management (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This paper examines whether short-sellers (bears) exploit post-earnings-announcement-drift (PEAD) and the accruals anomaly. I first find that short interest is higher during the period that follows a negative earnings ...
  • Goldenson, Jeffrey D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Beat Browser is a music browsing environment that delivers immediate audio feedback while browsing arbitrarily large music collections. The goal of Beat Browser is to give users a sense of exploring "live" and continuous ...
  • Musso, Christopher Scott, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Over the past century, materials have faced notoriously long delays between invention and commercialization. These delays make private investment very difficult, and can prevent good materials from reaching markets. A ...
  • Kim, Sue-Mie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
    A line, the simplest way to express an artist's feelings or interpretation of an object, has its own emotions that an artist can employ for her purpose. Laser light, the most self-concentrated, self-sustained and directed, ...
  • Nguyen, Debbie Diem (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    and sometimes even surpass, the capabilities and aesthetics of the natural human body. A prosthesis is carefully designed to provide optimal functionality to assist the amputee in returning back to her normal daily activities ...
