  • Chak, Daniel, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis presents a methodology and framework for designing systems that apply real-time simulation of computational models throughout the modeling and parameter modification stages of problem solving for graph based ...
  • Lackner, Tamara M. (Tamara Magda), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Kim, Taemie Jung (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Distributed collaboration is often more challenging than co-located collaboration as many of the social signals become lost in computer-mediated communication. I propose a system that improves the performance of distributed ...
  • Hoffman, Guy, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis is concerned with the notion of fluency in human-robot interaction (HRI), exploring cognitive mechanisms for robotic agents that would enable them to overcome the stop-and-go rigidity present in much of HRI to ...
  • Gomez-Monroy, Carla, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The eRadio project proposes to be an effective aid to increase interaction and reduce alienation among the members of dispersed communities by using a holistic approach to participatory and interactive web radio-production, ...
  • Shaffer, David Williamson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Martinez Villalpando, Ernesto Carlos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Commercially available ankle-foot prostheses are passive when in contact with the ground surface, and thus, their mechanical properties remain fixed across different terrains and walking speeds. The passive nature of these ...
  • Wen, Chung-Lin, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We develop a novel algorithm based on spectral geometry that summarize a photo collection into a small subset that represents the collection well. While the definition for a good summarization might not be unique, we focus ...
  • Smith, Dustin Arthur (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Calendar applications do not understand calendar entries. This limitation prevents them from offering the range of assistance that can be provided by a human personal assistant. Understanding calendar entries is a difficult ...
  • Kelliher, Aisling Geraldine Mary, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Personal stories make our experiences memorable over time. Transforming our fragmentary memories into shareable narratives helps us to understand and communicate who we are as individual and social beings. This thesis ...
  • Gerasimov, Vadim, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Every Sign of Life introduces an approach to and motivational schema for personal health monitoring. It is an exploration of how to make information collected by personal health-monitoring devices fun and engaging, and ...
  • Johnson, Michael Patrick, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Vaikakul, Savalai, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Studies of computers and education have failed to account for the relevance and importance of tacit assumptions and unquestioned expectations that underlie educational technology practices. A major premise of this dissertation ...
  • Vawter, Noah (Noah Theodore) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This dissertation describes the research, development and reasoning behind a family of musical instruments called Exertion Instruments. They use inline electrical generators to run a synthesizer and an amplifier while ...
  • Mueller, Florian, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Tome, Basheer (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Programmable materials have the power to bring to life inert materials in the world around us. Exoskin, provides a way to embed a multitude of static, rigid materials into actuatable, elastic membranes, allowing the new ...
  • Aldrich, Matthew (Matthew Henry) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Lighting, and its emergence as a digital and networked medium, represents an ideal platform for conducting research on both sensor and human-derived methods of control. Notably, solid-state lighting makes possible the ...
  • Robbel, Philipp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis explores how state-of-the-art object recognition methods can benefit from integrating information across multiple observations of an object. Considered are active vision systems that allow to steer the camera ...
  • Johnson, Michael Patrick, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    A real-time motion engine for interactive synthetic characters, either virtual or physical, needs to allow expressivity and interactivity of motion in order to maintain the illusion of life. Canned animation examples from ...
  • Sterling, Bram (Bram H.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In order to modify bacterial genetic codes, modifications must be made throughout the genome wherever the affected codon is used. Making such numerous and widespread genomic changes requires specialized techniques. MAGE ...
