  • Eisenstein, Jacob (Jacob Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Computers cannot fully understand spoken language without access to the wide range of modalities that accompany speech. This thesis addresses the particularly expressive modality of hand gesture, and focuses on building ...
  • Yuen, Jenny, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    With the rising popularity and accessibility of cameras as well as the arrival of popular video sharing websites like YouTube.com, Google Video, veoh.com, and many others, large quantities of video are produced and available ...
  • Lee, Esther, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This paper attempts to provide a solution to a problem facing many multinational firms: the lack of an accessible and comprehensive database for up-to-date component part forecasts. We consider this problem in the context ...
  • Chen, Frederick Wey-Min, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis describes the use of opaque microwave bands for global estimation of precipitation rate. An algorithm was developed for estimating instantaneous precipitation rate for the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) ...
  • Wong, Charles Teng (Charles Teng-Iao) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Lee, Jae Wook, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Resource contention among concurrent threads on multicore platforms results in greater performance variability of individual threads than traditionally seen with time-multiplexed threads on single-core platforms. This ...
  • Duncan, Joseph, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis describes the design, and validation of a maximum power point tracking DC-DC converter capable of following the true global maximum power point in the presence of other local maximum. It does this without the ...
  • Newbern, Jeffrey Lawrence (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Barua, Rajeev K. (Rajeev Kumar) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Vasovski, Steven (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Competitive pressures in manufacturing industries have led to an increased utilization of strategic sourcing initiatives: among them is low cost sourcing. While low cost sourcing has been used extensively for direct ...
  • Henkle, Aimee L. (Aimee Leigh), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The work for this thesis was performed at Honeywell in the Automation and Control Solutions (ACS) division. The project focuses on ACS's manufacturing strategy regarding its global supply chain design, primarily discussing ...
  • Rapoport, Benjamin Isaac (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    A holy grail of bioelectronics is to engineer biologically implantable systems that can be embedded without disturbing their local environments, while harvesting from their surroundings all of the power they require. As ...
  • Graybill, Wesley (Wesley Darwin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The goal of this thesis is to design an autonomous control system for the sustainable control of buildings. The control system focusses on satisfying three goals to encourage and facilitate a more sustainable lifestyle for ...
  • Langer, Pavel (Pavel M.), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Chau, Man Ping Grace (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis presents Fide, a hardware design system that uses Goal-oriented programming. Goal-oriented programming is a programming framework to specify open-ended decision logic. This approach relies on two fundamental ...
  • Williamson, Victor Lamont (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We have designed and implemented a Goal-oriented Web application to search videos, images, and news by querying YouTube, Truveo, Google and Yahoo search services. The Planner module decomposes functionality in Goals and ...
  • Yee, Kenneth W. (Kenneth Wee-Koon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Riemann, Reina, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Classical low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes were first introduced by Robert Gallager in the 1960's and have reemerged as one of the most influential coding schemes. We present new families of quantum low-density ...
  • Suchak, Mitesh Arunkant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Jazayeri, Ryan, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, a scheme is presented that harnesses the power of Google to locate previously visited webpages. Instead of bookmarking webpages by their URL, this process is based on addressing pages by their Google URL, ...
