  • Jones, Thouis Raymond, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This dissertation shows that biologically meaningful predictions can be made by analyzing images of cells. In particular, groups of related genes and their biological functions can be predicted using images from large ...
  • Missiuro, Patrycja Vasilyev, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The presented work develops a set of machine learning and other computational techniques to investigate and predict gene properties across a variety of biological datasets. In particular, our main goal is the discovery of ...
  • Dunitz, Max (Max H.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Sepsis, which occurs when an infection leads to a systemic inflammatory response, is believed to contribute to one in two to three hospital deaths in the United States. Using the Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in ...
  • Pokross, William Rodman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1963)
  • Dreyer, Anna Alexandra (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Psychophysical sensitivity to interaural time differences (ITD) in the envelope of high- frequency sinusoidally amplitude-modulated (SAM) tones is generally poorer than that to low- frequency pure tones (PT). ITD sensitivity ...
  • Lund, Mack R. (Mack Roger), 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Sripakdeevong, Parit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Amador Werning Angeletos (2006) characterize the conditions under which optimal saving/ consumption decision are determined by a minimum savings policy. I test this model empirically against data from the Townsend Thai ...
  • Sheth, Mallory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Predicting outcomes for critically ill patients is a topic of considerable interest. The most widely used models utilize data from early in a patient's stay to predict risk of death. While research has shown that use of ...
  • Tran, Tuan, M. Eng (Tuan Minh) Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In my thesis, I present the methods I use to predict NBA games using matrix factorization. Matrix factorization is popular through the Netflix recommendation problem, but in general, one can apply it to data that are best ...
  • Class, Caleb Andrew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Desulfurization of fossil fuels with supercritical water (SCW) has been the topic of many studies over the past few decades. This process does not require the use of any catalyst, eliminates the need for a hydrogen feed, ...
  • Mundell, Lee Carter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The rapid growth of the availability of wearable biosensors has created the opportunity for using physiological signals to measure worker performance. An important question is how to use such signals to not just measure, ...
  • Lowe, Christopher D., S.M. (Christopher David). Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The ability to predict the likely trajectory is a key element of safely integrating Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS). A particularly challenging environment is in the vicinity of uncontrolled ...
  • Helgason, Ívar S. (Ívar Sigurjón) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Electronic prescription software is replacing traditional handwritten medication orders. This development however doesn't come without a cost and speed has been one of the most complained about issues. It is important to ...
  • McCamant, Stephen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis presents a new, automatic technique to assess whether replacing a component of a software system by a purportedly compatible component may change the behavior of the system. The technique operates before ...
  • Jaroensri, Ronnachai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    There is often more than one way to select tonal adjustment for a photograph, and different individuals may prefer different adjustments. However, selecting good adjustments is challenging. This thesis describes a method ...
  • Wang, Yuhao, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this thesis, I designed a computational method for predicting substrates of [gamma]-secretase in Drosophila and compared this method with other popular methods using some benchmark data set. Results show our method ...
  • Wang, Gerald J. (Gerald Jonathan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The equilibrium density of fluids under nanoconfinement can differ substantially from their bulk density. Using a mean-field approach to describe the energetic landscape near the carbon nanotube (CNT) wall, we obtain ...
  • Ivanic, Žiga, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    (cont.) Lean operation of a spark ignition (SI) internal combustion engine (ICE) offers attractive performance incentives. Lowered combustion temperatures inhibit formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx), while reduced intake ...
  • Menke, Matthew Ewald, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    A method is presented that uses [beta]-strand interactions at both the sequence and the atomic level, to predict the beta-structural motifs in protein sequences. A program called Wrap-and-Pack implements this method, and ...
  • Rush, Monica R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Commute trip reduction plans are being implemented at an increasing number of worksites. In order to be able to structure the most effective plan for a specific worksite, it is necessary to understand the factors that ...
