  • Vilhjálmsson, Hannes Högni (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    One of the most important roles played by technology is connecting people and mediating their communication with one another. Building technology that mediates conversation presents a number of challenging research and ...
  • Goodman, Daniel Hayim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis describes the design and construction of pressure sensing matrices for capturing human location and activity data from large surfaces in a space such as the floors, walls, tabletops, countertops, and furniture. ...
  • Colaç̦o, Andrea B. (Andrea Brazilin Immaculate Danielle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Video content is being consumed in a host of new ways - viewers are no longer restricted to same-time or same-place viewing. However, the experience of watching content with a group is inherently a sociable one, and often ...
  • Vasconcelos, Nuno Miguel Borges de Pinho Cruz de (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis presents a unified solution to visual recognition and learning in the context of visual information retrieval. Realizing that the design of an effective recognition architecture requires careful consideration ...
  • Lee, Jin Joo, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Much of human social communication is channeled through our facial expressions, body language, gaze directions, and many other nonverbal behaviors. A robot's ability to express and recognize the emotional states of people ...
  • Goldenson, Jeffrey D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Beat Browser is a music browsing environment that delivers immediate audio feedback while browsing arbitrarily large music collections. The goal of Beat Browser is to give users a sense of exploring "live" and continuous ...
  • Reas, Casey (Casey Edwin), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    As we enter the 21st century our culture has been significantly changed by the arrival of the internet and the proliferation personal computing and digital communications. As the decades progress, we will find ourselves ...
  • Hlubinka, Michelle Iva, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Representations of an architectural space have a diversity of purposes and their implementation should be carefully evaluated in order to be coherent with those objectives. Some of them are analytical descriptions, where ...
  • Brennan, Karen A. (Karen Ann) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We live in a computational culture - a culture in which we are surrounded by computational systems and interfaces, from social networks to banking infrastructure, to entertainment platforms, to transportation systems. This ...
  • Gorbet, Matthew G. (Matthew Grant), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Pao, Sheng-Ying (Sheng-Ying Aithne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Humans are inherently creative and we have the desire to express and communicate. Pen and paper have been effective means of creation, expression, and communication for centuries. Today, technology increasingly permeates ...
  • Dublon, Gershon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Responding to rapid growth in sensor network deployments that outpaces research efforts to understand or relate the new data streams, this thesis presents a collection of interfaces to sensor network data that encourage ...
  • Bonanni, Leonardo Amerigo, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    For a timely answer to the question of sustainability, or how to provide for future generations, there needs to be shared accounting of our social and physical resources. Supply chain transparency makes it possible to map ...
  • Luescher, Samuel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The growing sensor data collections about our environment have the potential to drastically change our perception of the fragile world we live in. To make sense of such data, we commonly use visualization techniques, ...
  • Petron, Arthur J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The BEAU is an electric-assist bicycle system that is completely self-contained within the rear wheel. The purpose of approaching a electric-assist bicycle in this manner is two-fold: simplifying the device and opening the ...
  • DePalma, Nicholas Brian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this body of work, I present a situated and interactive agent perception system that can index into its world and, through a bidirectional exchange of referential gesture, direct its internal indexing system toward both ...
  • Hirsch, Matthew Waggener (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, I describe a new type of interactive display that supports both on-screen multi-touch interactions and off-screen hover-based gestures. This BiDirectional (BiDi) screen, capable of both image capture and ...
  • Sakai, Yasushi, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Present urban planning issues require to involve the public in the urban design process, and this slow and complicated process remains the primary domain of expert planners and consultants. Although there have been many ...
  • Mani, Ankur (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, I study bilateral exchanges in social networks. I integrate the market based approach in economics and network based approach in sociology. I also give a joint model of externalities and peer pressure in ...
  • Dong, Wei, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Stage performances present many challenges and opportunities in the field of robotics. Onstage robots not only have to function flawlessly, they must interact convincingly with their human counterparts and adhere to a rigid ...
