  • Huang, Cheng-Zhi Anna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We all share similar innate emotions, but our cultural experiences nurture us to express them differently. The musical form "theme and variations" offer us a unique lens to uncover in each culture the relationships between ...
  • Chai, Wei, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    The emergence of digital music on the Internet requires new information retrieval methods adapted to specific characteristics and needs. While music retrieval based on the text information, such as title, composers, or ...
  • DeVaul, Richard W. (Richard Wayne), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis documents a body of wearable computing research surrounding the development of the Memory Glasses, a new type of proactive memory support technology. The Memory Glasses combines features of existing memory ...
  • Pearson, Elroy L. (Elroy Louis), 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis presents new approaches to building holographic displays. The approaches use a diffractive spatial light modulator (SLM) built using microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology. Several related MEMS SLMs ...
  • Hunter, Seth E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis presents the design and implementation of MemTable, an interactive touch table that supports co-located group meetings by capturing both digital and physical interactions in its memory. The goal of the project ...
  • Zinman, Aaron Robert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Every day, millions of people encounter strangers online. We read their medical advice, buy their products, and ask them out on dates. Yet our views of them are very limited; we see individual communication acts rather ...
  • Zigelbaum, Jamie B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis presents External Legibility: a property of user interfaces that affects the ability of non-participating observers to understand the context of a user's actions. Claims of its value are supported with arguments ...
  • Guttman, Robert H., 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Karahalios, Kyratso G., 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • DeTar, Charles (Charles Frederick) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of Merry Miser, a persuasive mobile phone application intended to help people to spend less and save more. The application uses the context provided by users' ...
  • Talei Franzesi, Giovanni (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Neuronal action potentials ('spikes') are thought to be the fundamental units of information in the brain, hence the ability to record them and to understand their genesis is crucial to our comprehension of the biological ...
  • Brooks, Kevin Michael, 1958- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Young, Diana S. (Diana Santos), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Virtuosic bowed string performance in many ways exemplifies the incredible potential of human physical performance and expression. Today, a great deal is known about the physics of the violin family and those factors ...
  • Diep, Vivian Chan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The culture of televised media experiences has changed very little since the time it began in the 1930s, but new internet technologies, like Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube, are now quickly forcing major change. Although these ...
  • Prakash, Manu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, I propose a new paradigm in computing where bits can simultaneously transport and manipulate materials and information. Information representation is invariably physical. Though this insight is fundamental ...
  • Kong, David Sun, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The ability to synthesize custom de novo DNA constructs rapidly, accurately, and inexpensively is highly desired by researchers, as synthetic genes and longer DNA constructs are enabling to numerous powerful applications ...
  • Sierra Hernández, Wilfrido, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Prakash, Manu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    A paradigm of micro-mechanical gates for field produceable logic is explored. A desktop manufacturing system is sought after which is capable of printing functional logic devices in the field. A logic scheme which induces ...
  • Maguire, Yael G., 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis explores spin manipulation, fabrication techniques and boundary conditions of electromagnetism to bridge the macroscopic and microscopic worlds of biology, chemistry and electronics. This work is centered around ...
