  • VanWyk, Eric (Eric Judson) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    High precision voltage measurement has become a hidden part of our daily lives. Our phones, our wearables, and even our household appliances now include precision measurement capability that rivals what was once only ...
  • Kong, David Sun, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Two modes of energetic beam-mediated fabrication have been investigated, namely focused ion beam (FIB) direct-writing of nanoparticles, and a technique for electrostatically patterning ionized inorganic nanoparticles, ...
  • Galyean, Tinsley Azariah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Tellex, Stefanie, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Making systems that understand language has long been a dream of artificial intelligence. This thesis develops a model for understanding language about space and movement in realistic situations. The system understands ...
  • Maher, Brenden Courtney, 1966- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Cavatorta, Andrew Albert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The last 130 years of musical invention are punctuated with fascinating musical instruments that use the electromechanical actuation to turn various natural phenomena into sound and music. But this history is very sparse ...
  • Navarro, Edwina Portocarrero (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In recent years the world became mostly urban, communication untethered and objects surpassed humans connected to the Internet. We are being shaped by the intersection of urbanization and ubiquitous computing. "Smart Cities" ...
  • Matias, J. Nathan (Jorge Nathan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis presents research on gender disparities in online news, followed with three open source designs that attempt to address those disparities. Open Gender Tracker is a platform that applies automated gender analysis ...
  • Calacci, Dan (Daniel Matthew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    It's long been known that humans, like many animals, exhibit patterns of behavior that appear to balance exploration of new opportunity and resources with exploitation of already-found safe bets. Humans seem to leverage ...
  • Aimi, Roberto Mario, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis presents several new percussion instruments that explore the ideas of musical networks; playing, recording, and developing musical material; continuous control over rhythm and timbre; pressure sensing; and ...
  • Young, Diana S. (Diana Santos), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    The violin has long been admired as one of the most beautiful, complex, and challenging musical instruments. With its capacity for nuance, richness of tone, and flexibility of range, its expressive qualities have been ...
  • Smith, Kimberly, S.M. (Kimberly Ann) Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    The need for computer science education is greater than ever. There are currently over 500,000 unfilled computer science jobs in the United States and many schools do not teach computer science in their classrooms. Computers ...
  • Kortekaas, L. Mark (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Roy, Deb Kumar, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Rubinovitz, Yasmine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this era of luxurious information, we are free to access as many news stories as we want. However, news is so abundant that people don't have the time to consume all of it, nor the time to select which stories they want ...
  • Herman, Jeffrey Alan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Horner, Christopher D. (Christopher Demetri) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Kim, Jaewon, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Two novel techniques for future CAT system are presented. Transmission descattering is a singleshot method to differentiate unscattered and scattered components of light transmission through a scattering material. ...
  • Chuong, Amy (Amy S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Optogenetic inhibition of neurons enables the causal assessment of their contributions to brain functions, but a limit to the utility of optogenetic modulation is the quantity of neural tissue that can be successfully ...
  • Vigoda, Benjamin William, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
    Nonlinear differential equations and iterated maps can perform any computation. Sometimes, the most difficult part of performing a useful computation, however, is writing the program. Furthermore, in practice, we often ...
