  • Ikoma, Hayato (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Computational microscopy is an emerging technology which extends the capabilities of optical microscopy with the help of computation. One of the notable example is super resolution fluorescence microscopy which achieves ...
  • 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 ...
  • Smilkov, Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    It has been almost two decades since the beginning of the web. This means that the web is no longer just a technology of the present, but also, a record of our past. Email, one of the original forms of social media, is ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Yu, Zhao (Zhao Amy) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hayden, Katherine (Katherine Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis explores the extent to which untrained annotators can create annotated corpora of scientific texts. Currently the variety and quantity of annotated corpora are limited by the expense of hiring or training ...
  • Hemsley, Robert Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis outlines the design, development and evaluation of a computer vision framework known as Flow. Flow utilizes a wearable head mounted camera to observe user interactions, providing recognition of objects, locations, ...
