  • Farrell, Matthew Todd (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis I study the role of extrinsic (sensors placed on the body) versus intrinsic sensing (instruments placed on an artificial limb) and determine a robust set of sensors from physical and reliability constraints ...
  • Mann, Steve, 1962- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Feldmeier, Mark Christopher, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Creating an appropriate indoor climate is essential to worker productivity and personal happiness. It is also an area of large expenditure for building owners. And, with rising fuel costs, finding ways of reducing energy ...
  • Vemuri, Sunil, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The prevalence and affordability of personal and environmental recording apparatuses are leading to increased documentation of our daily lives. This trend is bound to continue and it follows that academic, industry, and ...
  • Chow, Brian, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Recent advances in de novo gene synthesis, library construction, and genomic selection for target sequencing using DNA from custom microarrays have demonstrated that microarrays can effectively be used as the world's ...
  • Parkes, Amanda Jane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    At its core, the concept of Tangible Interfaces leverages the idea of using the movement of the body as an inherent part of the human side of a human-computer interaction, assuming that bodily engagement and tactile ...
  • McKenna, Michael Allen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Pappu, Ravikanth Srinivasa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Modern cryptography relies on algorithmic one-way functions - numerical functions which are easy to compute but very difficult to invert. This dissertation introduces physical one-way firnctions and physical one-way hash ...
  • Vaucelle, Catherine N. (Catherine Nicole) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Tangible Media as an area has not explored how the tangible handle is more than a marker or place-holder for digital data. Tangible Media can do more. It has the power to materialize and redefine our conception of space ...
  • Foner, Leonard Newton (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Cassimatis, Nicholas L. (Nicholas Louis), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In order to understand and create human-level intelligence I have developed the Polyscheme cognitive architecture to build systems that combine several representation and inference schemes when they think. Polyscheme is ...
  • Ridley, Brent (Brent Alan), 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Forty years of exponential growth of semiconductor technology have been predicated on the miniaturization of the transistors that comprise integrated circuits. While complexity has greatly increased within a given area of ...
  • Schoner, Bernd, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Sun, Amy (Amy Teh-Yu) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Robotic vehicles walk on legs, roll on wheels, are pulled by tracks, pushed by propellers, lifted by wings, and steered by rudders. All of these systems share the common character of momentum transport across their surfaces. ...
  • Butera, William J. (William Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    A paintable computer is defined as an agglomerate of numerous, finely dispersed, ultra-miniaturized computing particles; each positioned randomly, running asynchronously and communicating locally. Individual particles are ...
  • Marmasse, Natalia, 1962- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Two decades of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) research has addressed how people work in groups and the role technology plays in the workplace. This body of work has resulted in a myriad of deployed technologies ...
  • Farbood, Morwaread Mary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a quantitative, parametric model for describing musical tension. While the phenomenon of tension is evident to listeners, it is difficult to formalize due to its subjective and multi-dimensional nature. ...
  • Hancock, Christopher Michael, 1961- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Though notoriously difficult, real-time programming offers children a rich new set of applications, and the opportunity to engage bodily knowledge and experience more centrally in intellectual enterprises. Moreover, the ...
  • Smaragdis, Paris J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
  • Sadi, Sajid H. (Sajid Hassan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Since the time of the first philosophers, logic and observed human behavior have stood somewhat in contradiction. More recently, scientist have started to delve into decision making to understand why the way we act differs ...
