  • DeTar, Charles (Charles Frederick) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Non-hierarchical, participatory, consensus-based decision making has seen an explosion in popularity in recent years. The traditional techniques of formal consensus, however, are limited to face-to-face meetings, which can ...
  • Underkoffler, John Stephen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Agamanolis, Stefan Panayiotis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Responsive media are media that can sense and react intelligently to factors like presentation conditions or equipment, audience identity or profile, direct interaction, history or anticipation of involvement, and so on. ...
  • Kapoor, Ashish, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Many practical problems in pattern recognition require making inferences using multiple modalities, e.g. sensor data from video, audio, physiological changes etc. Often in real-world scenarios there can be incompleteness ...
  • Whitman, Brian A. (Brian Alexander) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Expression as complex and personal as music is not adequately represented by the signal alone. We define and model meaning in music as the mapping between the acoustic signal and its contextual interpretation - the 'community ...
  • Silver, Jay (Jay Saul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Purpose and meaning of the physical world can be re-assigned and re-made by individuals as they go rather than being pre-fixed by people who came before them. But this mindset is more rare than it should be if we want an ...
  • Seitinger, Susanne, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Lighting and illuminated displays shape our relations to urban environments and to one another at night and increasingly during the day by transforming what Kevin Lynch referred to as the "image of the city" (1964). Today, ...
  • Clarkson, Brian Patrick, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    In this thesis I develop and evaluate computational methods for extracting life's patterns from wearable sensor data. Life patterns are the reoccurring events in daily behavior, such as those induced by the regular cycle ...
  • Robbel, Philipp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Many problems of economic and societal interest in today's world involve tasks that are inherently distributed in nature. Whether it be the efficient control of robotic warehouses or delivery drones, distributed computing ...
  • Li, Wu-Hsi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this dissertation research, we explore ways of using audio on AR applications, as it is especially suitable for mobile users when their eyes and hands are not necessarily available and they have limited attention capacity. ...
  • Fletcher, Richard R. (Richard Ribon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Several implementations of chipless RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags are presented and discussed as low-cost alternatives to chip-based RFID tags and sensors. An overview of present-day near-field electromagnetic ...
  • Reynolds, Matthew S. (Matthew Stephen), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    This thesis concerns the application of electromagnetic wave propagation to the problem of indoor radiolocation. Determining the location of people and objects relative to their environment is crucial for asset tracking, ...
  • Eagle, Nathan Norfleet (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The study of complex social systems has traditionally been an arduous process, involving extensive surveys, interviews, ethnographic studies, or analysis of online behavior. Today, however, it is possible to use the ...
  • Dobson, Kelly E. (Kelly Elizabeth), 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Machine Therapy is a new practice combining art, design, psychoanalysis, and engineering work in ways that access and reveal the vital, though often unnoticed, relevance of people's interactions and relationships with ...
  • Peek, Nadya (Nadya Meile) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Rapid prototyping has been in the limelight for the past decade. 3D printers have an evocative name that promises production of complex parts on demand. Yet current practice doesn't quite deliver on these promises of ...
  • Tseng, Tiffany (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Much of what we design today is mediated by digital processes, from digital tools and software used to create tangible and virtual artifacts, to online resources and communities that enable people to exchange design ...
  • Coelho, Marcelo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    At the boundary between people, objects and spaces, we encounter a broad range of surfaces. Their properties perform functional roles such as permeability, comfort or illumination, while conveying information such as an ...
  • Sano, Akane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    This thesis carries out a series of studies and develops a methodology and tools to measure and analyze ambulatory physiological, behavioral and social data from wearable sensors and mobile phones with trait data such as ...
  • Patten, James McMichael, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a new type of human-computer interface based on mechanical constraints that combines some of the tactile feedback and affordances of mechanical systems with the abstract computational power of modern ...
  • Torpey, Peter Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Media Scores provide a theoretical and technical means to orchestrate multiple modalities in the creation of expressive works of art and performance. New technologies afford numerous opportunities to tell stories and create ...
