  • Overholt, Daniel James, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis will discuss the technical and artistic design of the Emonator', a novel interactive musical interface which responds to gestural input with realtime aural and visual feedback. A user interacts with the Emonator ...
  • Datta, Bianca C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Due to advances in design generation and digital fabrication, novice designers are able to access more and more tools to bring their visions to life. As materials begin to evolve and change shape, having a set of rules ...
  • Turpeinen, Marko Sakari, 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Over the past four years the research described in this thesis has enabled community groups to become collaborative content producers on the Internet. These groups use computer-mediated networking to publish their stories ...
  • Rich, Travis (Travis Sebastian) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis presents and outlines a system for encoding physical passive objects with deterministic surface features that contain identifying information about that object. The goal of such work is to take steps towards a ...
  • Knouf, Nicholas A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The boundary between subject and object is becoming ever-the-more blurred by the creation of new types of computational objects. Especially when these objects take the form of robotic creatures do we get to question the ...
  • Burns, Edward E. (Edward Eugene) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Sensor-enabled computer systems capable of recognizing specific activities taking place in the home may enable a host of "context-aware" applications such as health monitoring, home automation, remote presence, and on-demand ...
  • Kanarinka (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    There is a significant body of research that shows that people tend to congregate with others like them and favor information that confirms their existing views. With declining global news coverage and the rise of personalized ...
  • 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)
    This research involves creating a system that provides parents with tools and information to help children learn from television. Children who converse with their parents during television viewing are better able to evaluate ...
  • 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)
  • Amores Fernandez, Judith (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Our sense of smell is perhaps the most pervasive of all senses, as it has the ability to evoke memories and emotions in a vivid and subtle manner. While olfactory communication is one of the most basic methods of communication, ...
  • 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)
