  • Lee, Yoong Keok (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis improves unsupervised methods for part-of-speech (POS) induction and morphological word segmentation by modeling linguistic phenomena previously not used. For both tasks, we realize these linguistic intuitions ...
  • Sakakibara, Reyu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The nitrogen vacancy (NV) color center in diamond has been used to sense environmental variables such as temperature and electric and magnetic fields. Most sensing protocols depend on the optically detectable magnetic ...
  • Achour, Sara (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The increasing prominence of energy consumption as a first-order concern in contemporary computing systems has motivated the design of energy-efficient approximate computing platforms. These computing platforms feature ...
  • Johnston, Matthew R. (Matthew Ryan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In wireless networks, transmissions must be scheduled to opportunistically exploit the time-varying capacity of the wireless channels to achieve maximum throughput. These opportunistic policies require global knowledge of ...
  • Venkatraman, Dheera (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Many recent experiments have explored the use of nonclassical states of light to perform imaging or sensing. Although these experiments require quantum descriptions of light to explain their behavior, the advantages they ...
  • Netravali, Ravi Arun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis first presents a measurement toolkit, Mahimahi, that records websites and replays them under emulated network conditions. Mahimahi improves on prior record-and-replay frameworks by emulating the multi-origin ...
  • Chan, Chun Wang Ivan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers (THz QCLs) are arguably the most promising technology today for the compact, efficient generation of THz radiation. Their main limitation is that they require cryogenic cooling, which ...
  • Dernoncourt, Franck (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Prediction studies on physiological signals are time-consuming: a typical study, even with a modest number of patients, usually takes from 6 to 12 months. In response we design a large-scale machine learning and analytics ...
  • Chang, Arthur Hsu Chen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Solar photovoltaic power generation is a promising clean and renewable energy technology that can draw upon the planet's most abundant power source - the sun. However, relatively high levelized cost of energy (LCOE), the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mahmood, Zohaib (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The design of modern electronic systems is based on extensive numerical simulations, aimed at predicting the overall system performance and compliance since early design stages. Such simulations rely on accurate dynamical ...
  • Mastin, Dana Andrew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We study a series of topics involving approximation algorithms and the presence of uncertain data in optimization. On the first theme of approximation, we derive performance bounds for rollout algorithms. Interpreted as ...
  • Wu, Eugene, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Data-driven decision making and data analysis has grown in both importance and availability in the past decade, and has seen increasing acceptance in the broader population. Visual tools are needed to help non-technical ...
  • Li, Jerry Zheng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    High-performance concurrent priority queues are essential for applications such as task scheduling and discrete event simulation. Unfortunately, even the best performing implementations do not scale past a number of threads ...
  • Bylinskii, Zoya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Previous studies have identified that images carry the attribute of memorability, a predictive value of whether a novel image will be later remembered or forgotten. In this thesis we investigate the interplay between ...
  • Dane, Andrew E. (Andrew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    DC reactive magnetron sputtering was used to deposit few-nanometer-thick films of niobium nitride for fabrication of superconducting devices. Over 1000 samples were deposited on a variety of substrates, under various chamber ...
  • Hamed, Ezzeldin Omar Hussein (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite the rapid growth of next-generation cellular networks, researchers and end users today have limited visibility into the performance and problems of these networks. As LTE deployments move towards femto and pico ...
  • Ghazi, Badih (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Random (dv, dc)-regular LDPC codes (where each variable is involved in d, parity checks and each parity check involves d, variables) are well-known to achieve the Shannon capacity of the binary symmetric channel (for ...
  • Hsu, Allen Long (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The aim of this thesis is two-fold: The first is to develop a reliable processing technology for CVD graphene devices for applications in graphene circuits, i.e. mixers, frequency multipliers and phase key shifters. The ...
  • Herrington, William Frederick, Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The research done for this thesis was aimed at developing the optical elements needed for the Compact Opto-electronic Integrated Neural coprocessor (COIN coprocessor) project. The COIN coprocessor is an implementation of ...
