  • Pirsiavash, Hamed; Malisiewicz, Tomasz; Vondrick, Carl Martin; Khosla, Aditya; Torralba, Antonio (Springer US, 2016-03)
    We introduce algorithms to visualize feature spaces used by object detectors. Our method works by inverting a visual feature back to multiple natural images. We found that these visualizations allow us to analyze object ...
  • Tian, Lin; Li, Ju; Sun, Jun; Ma, Evan; Shan, Zhi-Wei (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-07)
    Displacive deformation via dislocation slip and deformation twinning usually plays a dominant role in the plasticity of crystalline solids at room temperature. Here we report in situ quantitative transmission electron ...
  • Lane, Mark; Novais, Eduardo A.; Louzada, Ricardo N.; Cole, Emily D.; Lee, ByungKun; Keane, Pearse A.; Denniston, Alastair K.; Witkin, André J.; Baumal, Caroline R.; Duker, Jay S.; Waheed, Nadia K.; Moult, Eric Michael; Husvogt, Lennart; Fujimoto, James G (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2016-08)
    Purpose: To investigate the appearance of choriocapillaris (CC) flow under drusen by comparing long-wavelength (1050 nm) swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) angiography with shorter-wavelength (840 nm) ...
  • Isola, Phillip; McDermott, Josh; Adelson, Edward H.; Freeman, William T.; Torralba, Antonio; Owens, Andrew Hale (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-06)
    Objects make distinctive sounds when they are hit or scratched. These sounds reveal aspects of an object's material properties, as well as the actions that produced them. In this paper, we propose the task of predicting ...
  • Davis, Abe; Rubinstein, Michael; Wadhwa, Neal; Mysore, Gautham J.; Freeman, William T.; Durand, Fredo (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-07)
    When sound hits an object, it causes small vibrations of the object's surface. We show how, using only high-speed video of the object, we can extract those minute vibrations and partially recover the sound that produced ...
  • Paul, Rohan; Feldman, Dan; Newman, Paul; Rus, Daniela L. (2014-05)
    Given an image stream, our on-line algorithm will select the semantically-important images that summarize the visual experience of a mobile robot. Our approach consists of data pre-clustering using coresets followed by a ...
  • Theogarajan, Luke; Shire, Doug; Kelly, Shawn K.; Wyatt, John L.; Rizzo, Joseph, III (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    We have recently designed, fabricated and implanted a visual prosthesis. Animal studies show that the implant remains viable post- op. There exist numerous challenges to move the implant from the bench o the bedside and ...
  • Cooke, Sam F; Bear, Mark F; Cooke, Samuel Frazer; Bear, Mark (Elsevier, 2015-07)
    Although work in primates on higher-order visual areas has revealed how the individual and concerted activity of neurons correlates with behavioral reports of object recognition, very little is known about the underlying ...
  • Cooke, Samuel Frazer; Komorowski, Robert; Kaplan, Eitan S.; Gavornik, Jeffrey; Bear, Mark (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-01)
    Familiarity with stimuli that bring neither reward nor punishment, manifested through behavioral habituation, enables organisms to detect novelty and devote cognition to important elements of the environment. Here we ...
  • Kaeli, Jeffrey W.; Singh, Hanumant; Leonard, John Joseph (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-10)
    A fundamental problem in autonomous underwater robotics is the high latency between the capture of image data and the time at which operators are able to gain a visual understanding of the survey environment. Typical ...
  • Rockland, Kathleen S.; Rockland, Kathleen S. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Recent work establishes that Prostriata, a little-studied area of the visual cortex neighboring V1, has distinct but hybrid visual properties which are suggestive of an unsuspected role in the rapid analysis and integration ...
  • Davis, Myers Abraham; Bouman, Katherine L.; Chen, Justin Gejune; Rubinstein, Michael; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William T. (Computer Vision Foundation, 2015-06)
    The estimation of material properties is important for scene understanding, with many applications in vision, robotics, and structural engineering. This paper connects fundamentals of vibration mechanics with computer ...
  • Sawayama, Masataka; Nishida, Shin'ya; Adelson, Edward H (Association for Research in Vision and Opthalmology, 2017-06)
    Color vision provides humans and animals with the abilities to discriminate colors based on the wavelength composition of light and to determine the location and identity of objects of interest in cluttered scenes (e.g., ...
  • Rao, Zhibiao; Vandiver, John Kim; Jhingran, Vikas Gopal (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2014-06)
    This paper addresses a practical problem: “Under which coverage of buoyancy modules, would the Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV) excitation on buoyant segments dominate the response?” This paper explores the excitation ...

    Bigham, Jeffrey P.; Yeh, Tom; Jayant, Chandrika; Ji, Hanjie; Miller, Andrew; White, Brandyn; White, Samuel; Little, Danny Greg; Miller, Robert C; Tatarowicz, Aubrey L (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010-04)
    The lack of access to visual information like text labels, icons,and colors can cause frustration and decrease independence for blind people. Current access technology uses automatic approaches to address some problems in ...
  • Kenstowicz, Michael (John Benjamins/University of Washington, 2010-03)
    Ogni toscano si comporta di fronte a una parola a lui nuova, come si nota p. es. nella lettura del latino, scegliendo costantamente, e inconsciamente, il timbro aperto, secondo il principio che il Migliorini ha condensato ...
  • Fuentes, Alberto Jose (Springer Science+Business Media, 2013-08)
    Between the late 1970s and the 2000s, the Guatemalan sugar industry transitioned from a production model with deplorable labor conditions and low productivity to a highly efficient model with improved conditions. This paper ...
  • Teller, Seth; Walter, Matthew R.; Antone, Matthew; Correa, Andrew Thomas; Davis, Randall; Fletcher, Luke Sebastian; Frazzoli, Emilio; Glass, Jim; How, Jonathan P.; Huang, Albert S.; Jeon, Jeong hwan; Karaman, Sertac; Luders, Brandon Douglas; Roy, Nicholas; Sainath, Tara (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    One long-standing challenge in robotics is the realization of mobile autonomous robots able to operate safely in existing human workplaces in a way that their presence is accepted by the human occupants. We describe the ...
  • Waber, Benjamin Nathan; Williams, Michele; Carroll, John Stephen; Pentland, Alex Paul (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2011-11)
    While self-report measures are often highly reliable for field research on trust (Mayer and Davis, 1999), subjects often cannot complete surveys during real time interactions. In contrast, the social signals that are ...
  • Aghion, Philippe; Angeletos, George-Marios; Banerjee, Abhijit; Manova, Kalina (Elsevier, 2010-02)
    How does uncertainty and credit constraints affect the cyclical composition of investment and thereby volatility and growth? This paper addresses this question within a model where firms engage in two types of investment: ...
