  • Akavia, Adi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We present results in cryptography, coding theory and sublinear algorithms. In cryptography, we introduce a unifying framework for proving that a Boolean predicate is hardcore for a one-way function and apply it to a broad ...
  • Hemachandra, Sachithra Madhawa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    As robots move into human-occupied environments, the need for effective mechanisms to enable interactions with humans becomes vital. Natural language is a flexible, intuitive medium that can enable such interactions, but ...
  • Chen, Harr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Semantic analysis is a core area of natural language understanding that has typically focused on predicting domain-independent representations. However, such representations are unable to fully realize the rich diversity ...
  • Ross, Michael G. (Michael Gregory), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis describes the SANE (Segmentation According to Natural Examples) algorithm for learning to segment objects in static images from video data. SANE uses background subtraction to find the segmentation of moving ...
  • Winston, Patrick Henry (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1970)
  • Yeo, B. T. Thomas (Boon Thye Thomas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In medical image analysis, registration is necessary to establish spatial correspondences across two or more images. Registration is rarely the end-goal, but instead, the results of image registration are used in other ...
  • Shakhnarovich, Gregory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The right measure of similarity between examples is important in many areas of computer science. In particular it is a critical component in example-based learning methods. Similarity is commonly defined in terms of a ...
  • Sun, Walter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The primary objective of this thesis is to develop robust algorithms for the incorporation of statistical information in the problem of estimating object boundaries in image data. We propose two primary algorithms, one ...
  • Wong, Lawson L. S. (Lawson Lok Sang) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Mobile-manipulation robots performing service tasks in human-centric indoor environments have long been a dream for developers of autonomous agents. Tasks such as cooking and cleaning typically involve interaction with the ...
  • Zettlemoyer, Luke S. (Luke Sean), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    One of the classical goals of research in artificial intelligence is to construct systems that automatically recover the meaning of natural language text. Machine learning methods hold significant potential for addressing ...
  • Wiens, Jenna Marleau (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The proliferation of electronic medical records holds out the promise of using machine learning and data mining to build models that will help healthcare providers improve patient outcomes. However, building useful models ...
  • Rahimi, Ali, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    I describe a semi-supervised regression algorithm that learns to transform one time series into another time series given examples of the transformation. I apply this algorithm to tracking, where one transforms a time ...
  • Kollar, Thomas (Thomas Fleming) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis focuses on understanding task-constrained natural language commands, where a person gives a natural language command to the robot and the robot infers and executes the corresponding plan. Understanding natural ...
  • Lakshmi Ratan, Aparna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Owens, Andrew (Andrew Hale) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    From the clink of a mug placed onto a saucer to the bustle of a busy café, our days are filled with visual experiences that are accompanied by distinctive sounds. In this thesis, we show that these sounds can provide a ...
  • Evgeniou, Theodoros K. (Theodoros Kostantinos), 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Srebro, Nathan, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Matrices that can be factored into a product of two simpler matrices can serve as a useful and often natural model in the analysis of tabulated or high-dimensional data. Models based on matrix factorization (Factor Analysis, ...
  • Meilă-Predoviciu, Marina, 1962- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Monteleoni, Claire E. (Claire Elizabeth), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Many practical problems such as forecasting, real-time decision making, streaming data applications, and resource-constrained learning, can be modeled as learning with online constraints. This thesis is concerned with ...
  • Zare, Aurea Tucay (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    DNA-wrapping technology, combined with size-exclusion chromatography, have made possible the sorting of carbon nanotubes according to length. In particular, length sorted nanotube samples, with finite lengths approaching ...
