    • Face processing in humans is compatible with a simple shape-based model of vision 

      Riesenhuber; Jarudi; Gilad; Sinha (2004-03-05)
      Understanding how the human visual system recognizes objects is one of the key challenges in neuroscience. Inspired by a large body of physiological evidence (Felleman and Van Essen, 1991; Hubel and Wiesel, 1962; Livingstone ...
    • Faces as a "Model Category" for Visual Object Recognition 

      Tan, Cheston; Poggio, Tomaso (2013-03-18)
      Visual recognition is an important ability that is central to many everyday tasks such as reading, navigation and social interaction, and is therefore actively studied in neuroscience, cognitive psychology and artificial ...

      Ehrmann, Stephen C.; Gilbert, Steven W.; McMartin, Flora; Abelson, Harold; Long, Philip D. (2007-10-20)
      Instruction in higher education must adapt more rapidly to: changes in workforce needs, global issues, advances in disciplines, and resource constraints. The pace of such improvement depends on the speed with which new ...
    • Fast and Robust Pyramid-based Image Processing 

      Aubry, Mathieu; Paris, Sylvain; Hasinoff, Samuel W.; Kautz, Jan; Durand, Frédo (2011-11-15)
      Multi-scale manipulations are central to image editing but they are also prone to halos. Achieving artifact-free results requires sophisticated edgeaware techniques and careful parameter tuning. These shortcomings were ...
    • Fast concurrent object classification and localization 

      Yeh, Tom; Lee, John J.; Darrell, Trevor (2008-06-10)
      Object localization and classification are important problems incomputer vision. However, in many applications, exhaustive searchover all class labels and image locations is computationallyprohibitive. While several methods ...
    • Fast Contour Matching Using Approximate Earth Mover's Distance 

      Grauman, Kristen; Darrell, Trevor (2003-12-05)
      Weighted graph matching is a good way to align a pair of shapesrepresented by a set of descriptive local features; the set ofcorrespondences produced by the minimum cost of matching features fromone shape to the features ...
    • Fast Rates for Regularized Least-squares Algorithm 

      Caponnetto, Andrea; Vito, Ernesto De (2005-04-14)
      We develop a theoretical analysis of generalization performances of regularized least-squares on reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces for supervised learning. We show that the concept of effective dimension of an integral ...
    • Fast Self-Healing Gradients 

      Beal, Jacob; Bachrach, Jonathan; Vickery, Dan; Tobenkin, Mark (2008-03)
      We present CRF-Gradient, a self-healing gradient algorithm that provably reconfigures in O(diameter) time. Self-healing gradients are a frequently used building block for distributed self-healing systems, but previous ...
    • Fast, Approximate State Estimation of Concurrent Probabilistic Hybrid Automata 

      Timmons, Eric (2013-12-11)
      It is an undeniable fact that autonomous systems are simultaneously becoming more common place, more complex, and deployed in more inhospitable environments. Examples include smart homes, smart cars, Mars rovers, unmanned ...
    • A File Location, Replication, and Distribution System for Network Information to Aid Network Management 

      Cheng, Tiffany (2010-09-22)
      This thesis demonstrates and evaluates the design, architecture, and implementation of a file location, replication, and distribution system built with the objective of managing information in an Internet network. The ...
    • File Synchronization with Vector Time Pairs 

      Cox, Russ; Josephson, William (2005-02-28)
      Vector time pairs are a new method for trackingsynchronization metadata. A vector time pairconsists of two vector times: one tracking filemodification history and one tracking filesynchronization history. Because the ...
    • Filtered Iterators For Safe and Robust Programs in RIFL 

      Shen, Jiasi; Rinard, Martin (2015-12-27)
      We present a new language construct, filtered iterators, for safe and robust input processing. Filtered iterators are designed to eliminate many common input-processing errors while enabling robust continued execution. The ...
    • Finding aircraft collision-avoidance strategies using policy search methods 

      Kaelbling, Leslie Pack; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (2009-09-12)
      A progress report describing the application of policy gradient and policy search by dynamic programming methods to an aircraft collision avoidance problem inspired by the requirements of next-generation TCAS.
