  • Perovich, Laura J. (Laura Jones) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    For the past twenty years, the data visualization movement has reworked the way we engage with information. It has brought fresh excitement to researchers and reached broad audiences. But what comes next for data? I seek ...
  • Dragulescu, Alexandru C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    While interacting online, one generates a multitude of personal data trails, both textual and behavioral. The data portrait is a way to collect, condense and represent these information trails, which are often time consuming ...
  • DeCamp, Philip (Philip James) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This dissertation will examine what a first person viewpoint means in the context of data visualization and how it can be used for navigating and presenting large datasets. Recent years have seen rapid growth in Big Data ...
  • Cooley, James E. (James Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    There is a misguided perception that RF spectrum space is fully allocated and fully used though even a superficial study of actual spectrum usage by measuring local RF energy shows it largely empty of radiation. Traditional ...
  • Sylvan, Elisabeth, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Woo, Grace R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis presents a Differential Binary Phase Shift Key (DBPSK) source separation system implemented with the GNU Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform and interfaced with the existing MIT community Radio Frequency ...
  • Petkova, Mia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Road repair expenditure comprises a significant portion of US federal and municipal budgets. Inspection and timely maintenance are crucial preventative measures against pavement distress formation that can lower the monetary ...
  • Gong, Nan-Wei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We live in a world where everyday artifacts begin to be designed and augmented as media interfaces. New technologies based on this mission enable us to more easily sense, interact, and communicate with objects. However, ...
  • Eaton, Scott Michael, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis explores the technical challenges and the creative possibilities afforded by a computational system that allows behavioral control over the appearance of a character's morphology. Working within the framework ...
  • Martinez Villalpando, Ernesto Carlos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The loss of a limb is extremely debilitating. Unfortunately, today's assistive technologies are still far from providing fully functional artificial limb replacements. Although lower extremity prostheses are currently ...
  • Kaushik, Pallavi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This work introduces the design and exploratory evaluation of a home reminder system for medication and healthcare that situates the timing and location of reminders based on contextual information about the user. The ...
  • Patil, Prashant (Prashant Tarachand) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Odor detection has wide range of applications in a variety of industries, including the agricultural, clinical diagnosis, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food analysis, environmental and defense fields. Spectroscopic techniques ...
  • Leithinger, Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Tangible representations of virtual content allow for sensory-rich interactions with computers through real-world objects. However, these objects are commonly static handles, with limited capabilities to present changing ...
  • Sharma, Sunanda, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Biodesign is a growing field that harnesses the re-engineering capabilities of synthetic biology and the principles of design to create functional products on a variety of scales. It is now possible to precisely modify and ...
  • Sack, Warren (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    On the Internet there are now very large-scale conversations (VLSCs) in which hundreds, even thousands, of people exchange messages across international borders in daily, many-to-many communications. It is my thesis that ...
  • Bhargava, Rahul, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis documents the adaptation and extension of an existing computational construction kit, and its use by a community of learners previously unaddressed - blind and visually impaired children. This community has an ...
  • Kornhauser, Daniel, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis studies the design and introduction of relevant computer-based design tools for non-industrial locations in developing settings. To this end, a programmable environment for combining motifs into patterns was ...
  • Minar, Nelson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Gorkani, Mojgan Monika (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Harry, Drew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We have long assumed that being face to face is the best environment for social interaction. But is "being there" the best we can aspire to? One common approach to improving face-to-face contexts is to add new communication ...
