  • Minar, Nelson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Gorkani, Mojgan Monika (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Harry, Drew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We have long assumed that being face to face is the best environment for social interaction. But is "being there" the best we can aspire to? One common approach to improving face-to-face contexts is to add new communication ...
  • Kidd, Cory David, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Human-robot interaction is now well enough understood to allow us to build useful systems that can function outside of the laboratory. This thesis defines sociable robot system in the context of long-term interaction, ...
  • Monroy-Hernández, Andrés (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This work describes a framework for the design and study of an online community of amateur creators. I focus on remixing as the lens to understand the contexts and processes of creative expression as it is fostered within ...
  • Dahley, Andrew Martin, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Ju, Wendy Guang-wen, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis investigates the creation of context-specific environments designed to assist people engaged in productive tasks. These Active Workspaces are an emerging class of applications that combine interaction design, ...
  • Chow, Brian, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Shen, Dawei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Information markets benefit the communities they serve by facilitating electronic distributed exchange of information. Further benefits include enhancing knowledge sharing, innovation, and productivity. This research ...
  • Kobayashi, Minoru (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Bonanni, Leonardo Amerigo, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Ubiquitous computing is transforming interior design by allowing utilities, goods and information to be delivered where and when we need them. How will new information technologies impact the design of interior spaces? ...
  • Wisneski, Craig Alexander, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Knaian, Ara N. (Ara Nerses), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Programmable matter is a proposed digital material having computation, sensing, actuation, and display as continuous properties active over its whole extent. Programmable matter would have many exciting applications, like ...
  • Kung, Pau Perng-Hwa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    This thesis presents BurstMapper, a system for detecting and characterizing bursts of tweets generated by multiple sources in order to understand interactions between Twitter users and the role of exogenous events (not ...
  • Spaulding, Samuel Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In recent years there has been a renewed enthusiasm for the power of computer systems and digital technology to reinvent education. One-on-one tutoring is a highly effective method for increasing student learning, but the ...
  • Monroy Fonseca, Marco Antonio, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    While several efforts have been carried out for connecting ethnic groups to the Internet, few of them have been executed in developing countries, where lack of connectivity infrastructure prevents access of indigenous ...
  • Thomaz, Edison, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In the past few years, the worldwide adoption of digital devices such as computers, cell phones, media players and personal organizers skyrocketed. Due to advances in networking and computation technologies, we now have ...
  • Monahan, Patrick Erin, III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Optogenetic actuators such as Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2) are seven-transmembrane proteins that function as light-gated ion channels. These naturally occurring proteins are found in green algae and serve as sensory photoreceptors ...
  • Bernstein, Jacob (Jacob Gold) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In order to map the dynamics of neural circuits in mammalian brains, there is a need for tools that can record activity over large volumes of tissue and correctly attribute the recorded signals to the individual neurons ...
  • Chuong, Amy (Amy S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The ability to rapidly and safely silence the electrical activity of individual neurons or neuron populations is invaluable in the study of brain circuit mapping. The expression of light-driven ion channels and pumps allows ...
