  • Dand, Dhairya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    There are 7 billion people on this planet. Each one of us is a learner and a teacher. Collectively we hold the entire of humanity's knowledge and boundless compassion. We enrich our lives every single day by unknowingly ...
  • Nichols, Laura E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis discusses the development, use, and potential future for an openly-editable web-based community learning resource for builders. The idea for a resource such as this and how it might be structured stems from ...
  • Fielding-Piper, Benjamin Tarquinn, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis outlines the reasons for the visual emphasis in current computer aided design interfaces. It describes the potential advantages of computer interfaces that allow a greater degree of physical interaction and it ...
  • Robert, David Yann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The idea and formative design of a blended reality character, a new class of character able to maintain visual and kinetic continuity between the fully physical and fully virtual; the technical underpinnings of its unique ...
  • Satat, Guy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this thesis we demonstrate novel methods to overcome optical scattering in order to resolve information about hidden scenes, in particular for biomedical applications. Imaging through scattering media has long been a ...
  • Buchsbaum, Daphna, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We want to build animated characters and robots capable of rich social interactions with humans and each other, and who are able to learn by observing those around them. An increasing amount of evidence suggests that, in ...
  • Jagdish, Deepak (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Visual narratives of our lives enable us to reflect upon our past relationships, collaborations and significant life events. Additionally, they can also serve as digital archives, thus making it possible for others to ...
  • Jain, Dhruv, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    We present Amphibian, a simulator to experience scuba diving virtually in a terrestrial setting. Amphibian is novel because it simulates a wider variety of sensations experienced underwater compared with to existing diving ...
  • Hadhrawi, Mohammad K (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Planning a city is a complex task that requires collaboration between multiple stakeholders who have different and often conflicting goals and objectives. Researchers have studied the role of technology in group collaboration ...
  • Grindlay, Graham Charles (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Skilled musical performance provides one of the best demonstrations of the upper limits of the human motor system's capabilities. It is therefore not surprising that learning to play an instrument is a long and difficult ...
  • Rosenblatt, Michael, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Invention is largely information driven. Everyone in a community of inventors is an aggregator of information relevant to invention. Sharing some of this information across a community of inventors will result in greater ...
  • Hasegawa, Ai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    (lm)possible Baby is a speculative design project which aims to stimulate discussions about the social, cultural and ethical implications of emerging biotechnologies that could enable same-sex couples to have their own, ...
  • Lee, Kwan Hong, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    IMPROMPTU is an Internet Protocol (IP) based audio platform for mobile communications and networked audio applications. IMPROMPTU supports multiple audio applications on a mobile device communicating over the IP network. ...
  • Solís García, Hugo, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    (cont.) theoretical section is accompanied by descriptions of historic and contemporary works that have influenced IMPI.
  • Russell, Kenneth B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Koyrakh, Inna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Social navigation is receiving information and insight from interacting with people or observing the results of their actions. This thesis explores methods for adding social navigation to situations where it would be useful ...
  • Aisen, Benjamin Baruch (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Active leg prostheses can lead to more natural and less energy consuming gait patterns for amputees than passive prostheses can, because they provide a better approximation of the functions of the human leg. Active prostheses ...
  • Benbasat, Ari Yosef, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Inertial measurement components, which sense either acceleration or angular rate, are being embedded into common user interface devices more frequently as their cost continues to drop dramatically. These devices hold a ...
  • Verplaetse, Christopher James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Dong, Wen, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A complex stochastic process involving human behaviors or human group behaviors is computationally hard to model with a hidden Markov process. This is because the state space of such behaviors is often a Cartesian product ...
