  • Pan, Wei, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This dissertation's main contribution is a new methodology, Reality Hedging, which is to use big-data driven approaches and tools from Computational Social Science for understanding, monitoring and designing economic and ...
  • Morris, Robert (Robert Randall) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    More than 30 million adults in the United States suffer from depression. Many more meet the diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder. Psychotherapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy can be effective for conditions ...
  • Follmer, Sean (Sean Weston) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The world is filled with tools and devices designed to fit specific needs and goals, and their physical form plays an important role in helping users understand their use. These physical affordances provide products and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Alfaro Bernate, Santiago Eloy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Digital Synesthesia is the concept of using sensors and mobile technology to create a user experience that mimics the way people use their senses and enables the perception of information that is outside of our sensory ...
  • Ađalgeirsson, Sigurđur Örn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    As robots move out of factory floors and into human environments, out from safe barricaded workstations to operating in close proximity with people, they will increasingly be expected to understand and coordinate with basic ...
  • 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 ...
  • Martin-Anderson, Brandon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Recent research has found that in some cases travel time variance is more important than mean travel time in travel mode choice. This implies shared infrastructure transportation modes prone to service unreliability stand ...
  • Sawada, Dan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis focuses on the design and implementation of Recast, which is an interactive media system that enables users to dynamically aggregate, curate, reconstruct, and distribute visual stories of real-world events, ...
  • Sharma, Anirudh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Augmented reality (AR) is a live view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated information such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. Research in AR has ...
  • Gonzalez Uribe, Carlos David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Three-dimensional printing and computational design have enabled designers to spatially vary material properties in objects. Nevertheless, this technology has current limitations that include material durability, cost and ...
  • Canham, Amy Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    As photoreceptors in our retinas capture discrete photons, that energy is converted into an electrochemical signal which shoots back through the optic nerve and into our visual cortex. We can sample that signal as it's ...
  • Hedman, Elliott B. (Elliot Bruce) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Over the course of six years, I brought ambulatory psychophysiology into a variety of industries as a means of conducting design research. I looked at the stress of children in occupational therapy, the frustration of ...
  • Colaç̦o, Andrea B. (Andrea Brazilin Immaculate Danielle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Mobile devices have evolved into powerful computing platforms. As computing capabilities grow and size shrinks, the most pronounced limitation with mobile devices is display size. With the adoption of touch as the de facto ...
  • Laucks, Jared Smith (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Digital fabrication tools, specifically additive manufacturing systems, have consistently advanced in efficiencies such as print speed, gantry size, material cost and ease of use. However most of these systems remain limited ...
  • 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 ...
  • Xia, Cassandra (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Probability and statistics is perhaps the area of mathematics education most directly applicable to everyday life. Yet, the methodologies traditionally used to cover these topics in school render the material formal and ...
  • Speiser, Jonathan Eliezer (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The goal of WorldLens is to provide a visual answer to the question: "what is happening in the world?" This thesis entails the design and development of a system that provides an exploratory view into world events across ...
  • McDuff, Daniel Jonathan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Emotion is key to the effectiveness of media, whether it be in influencing memory, likability or persuasion. Stories and narratives, even if fictional, have the ability to induce a genuine emotional response. However, the ...
  • Ou, Jifei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis takes a material perspective on designing transformable interfaces. The structure of material and mechanical properties such as stiffness, can determine not only its static performances, but also, with the help ...
