  • Galyean, Tinsley Azariah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Tellex, Stefanie, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Making systems that understand language has long been a dream of artificial intelligence. This thesis develops a model for understanding language about space and movement in realistic situations. The system understands ...
  • Navarro, Edwina Portocarrero (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In recent years the world became mostly urban, communication untethered and objects surpassed humans connected to the Internet. We are being shaped by the intersection of urbanization and ubiquitous computing. "Smart Cities" ...
  • Chuong, Amy (Amy S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Optogenetic inhibition of neurons enables the causal assessment of their contributions to brain functions, but a limit to the utility of optogenetic modulation is the quantity of neural tissue that can be successfully ...
  • Azarbayejani, Ali J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Kung, Ling-Pei, 1961- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    An imperative requirement in the design of a reconfigurable computing system or in the development of a new application on such a system is performance gains. However, such developments suffer from long-and-difficult ...
  • Blumberg, Bruce Mitchell (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Urrea, Claudia M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The complexity of the school, society and policy, and dominant cultural beliefs about teaching, learning, and knowledge constrain people's mindsets, paradoxically preventing the fundamental changes that can take advantage ...
  • Schmitt, Peter (Peter Alfons) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The digital revolution has fundamentally changed our lives by giving us new ways to express ourselves through digital media. For example, accessible multimedia content creation tools allow people to instantiate their ideas ...
  • Qi, Jie, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this dissertation, I explore the theme of wonder in technology, learning and self-expression through the lens of paper electronics, which is circuit building on paper using conductive tapes and circuit components as ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lapinski, Michael Tomasz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Humanity's desire to capture and understand motion started in 1878 and has continually evolved. Today, the best-of- breed technology for capturing motion are marker based optical systems that leverage high speed cameras. ...
  • 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 ...
