  • 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)
    Social interaction is an essential part of human communication, however the participants are often miles apart. Technological advances strive to bridge the physical distances between people, but generally lack the social ...
  • 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 ...
  • Swedish, Tristan Breaden (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis documents the development of an "expert-free" device in order to realize a system for scalable screening of the eye fundus. The goal of this work is to demonstrate enabling technologies that remove dependence ...
  • 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 ...
  • Poblano, Raul-David Valdivia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Mobility is traditionally thought of as freedom to access more goods and services. However, in my view, mobility is also largely about personal freedom, i.e., the ability to exceed one's physical limitations, in essence, ...
  • Presicce, Carmelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In recent years, there has been a growing interest in tools and strategies to support computational thinking, emphasizing a systematic application of computational ideas to problem solving. In this thesis, I focus instead ...
  • Rosenbaum, Eric (Eric Ross) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis introduces the idea of "musical tinkering," exploring how to engage people in playfully creating and experimenting with their own musical instruments and compositions. I discuss the design and study of two new ...
  • Weinberg, Gil, 1967- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Shaffer, David Williamson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Pardue, Laurel S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Many music enthusiasts abandon music studies because they are frustrated by the amount of time and effort it takes to learn to play interesting songs. There are two major components to performance: the technical requirement ...
  • Qi, Yuan, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Graphical models have been widely used in many applications, ranging from human behavior recognition to wireless signal detection. However, efficient inference and learning techniques for graphical models are needed to ...
  • Sinha, Shantanu (Shantanu Sanjay) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Eye exams via a slit lamp are critical in screening for conditions such as cataracts, corneal opacities and pterygia early on to avert vision loss. The slit lamp, however, is a purely qualitative optical device that is ...
