    • Direction Estimation of Pedestrian from Images 

      Shimizu, Hiroaki; Poggio, Tomaso (2003-08-27)
      The capability of estimating the walking direction of people would be useful in many applications such as those involving autonomous cars and robots. We introduce an approach for estimating the walking direction of people ...
    • Directional Selectivity and Its Use in Early Visual Processing 

      Marr, D.; Ullman, S. (1979-06-01)
      The construction of directionally selective units and their use in the processing of visual motion are considered.
    • Director Guide 

      Kahn, Kenneth M. (1978-06-01)
      Director is a programming language designed for dynamic graphics, artificial intelligence, and naﶥ users. It is based upon the actor or object oriented approach to programming and resembles Act 1 and SmallTalk. ...

      Director is a programming language designed for dynamic graphics, artificial intelligence, and use by computer-naﶥ people. It is based upon the actor or object oriented approach to programming and resembles Act 1 ...
    • Discovering Good Regions for Teitelman's Character Recognition Scheme 

      Winston, Patrick (1969-05-01)
      Warren Teitelman presented a novel scheme for real time character recognition in his master's thesis submitted in June of 1963. A rectangle, in which a character is to be drawn, is divided into two parts, one shaded ...
    • Discovery Systems 

      Haase, Kenneth W., Jr. (1986-04-01)
      Cyrano is a thoughtful reimplementation of Lenat's controversial Eurisko program, designed to perform automated discovery and concept formation in a variety of technical fields. The 'thought' in the reimplementation ...
    • Disparity Gradients and Depth Scaling 

      Bulthoff, Henrich; Fahle, Manfred (1989-09-01)
      The binocular perception of shape and depth relations between objects can change considerably if the viewing direction is changed only by a small angle. We explored this effect psychophysically and found a strong depth ...
    • Display Functions in LISP 

      Binford, Thomas O. (1970-03-01)
      This note describes a system which compiles various forms of LISP lists and arrays into display commands for the DEC 340 display, and provides supporting functions for scaling, for moving elements in a display, for pot ...
    • Dissociated Dipoles: Image representation via non-local comparisons 

      Balas, Benjamin J.; Sinha, Pawan (2003-08-13)
      A fundamental question in visual neuroscience is how to represent image structure. The most common representational schemes rely on differential operators that compare adjacent image regions. While well-suited to encoding ...
    • Distance Metric Between 3D Models and 3D Images for Recognition and Classification 

      Basri, Ronen; Weinshall, Daphna (1992-07-01)
      Similarity measurements between 3D objects and 2D images are useful for the tasks of object recognition and classification. We distinguish between two types of similarity metrics: metrics computed in image-space (image ...
    • The Dream of a Lifetime: A Lazy Scoping Mechanism 

      Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr.; Sussman, Gerald Jay (1979-11-01)
      We define a "rack", a data abstraction hybrid of a register and a stack. It is used for encapsulating the behavior of the kind of register whose contents may have an extent which requires that it be saved during the ...
    • Dual Coding and the Representation of Letter Strings 

      Rosenberg, Steven T. (1977-07-01)
      Sub-strings derived from four-letter strings (e.g. ABCD) were presented to subjects using a variation on Bransford and Franks' (1971) paradigm. Each strins was in either upper or lower case. Subjects were then tested ...
    • Dynamic Graphics Using Quasi Parallelism 

      Kahn, Kenneth M.; Hewitt, Carl (1978-06-01)
      Dynamic computer graphics is best represented as several processes operating in parallel. Full parallel processing, however, entails much complex mechanism making it difficult to write simple, intuitive programs for ...
    • Dynamic Interactions Between Limb Segments During Planar Arm Movement 

      Hollerbach, John M.; Flash, Tamar (1981-11-01)
      Movement of multiple segment limbs requires generation of appropriate joint torques which include terms arising from dynamic interactions among the moving segments as well as from such external forces as gravity. The ...
    • Dynamic Model and Control of an Artificial Muscle Based on Contractile Polymers 

      Brock, David L. (1991-11-01)
      A dynamic model and control system of an artificial muscle is presented. The artificial muscle is based on a contractile polymer gel which undergoes abrupt volume changes in response to variations in external conditions. ...
    • Dynamic Scaling of Manipulator Trajectories 

      Hollerbach, John M. (1983-01-01)
      A fundamental time-scaling property of manipulator dynamics has been identified that allows modification of movement speed without complete dynamics recalculation. By exploiting this property, it can be determined ...
    • Dynamical Systems and Motion Vision 

      Heel, Joachim (1988-04-01)
      In this paper we show how the theory of dynamical systems can be employed to solve problems in motion vision. In particular we develop algorithms for the recovery of dense depth maps and motion parameters using state ...
    • A Dynamical Systems Model for Language Change 

      Niyogi, Partha; Berwick, Robert (1995-12-01)
      Formalizing linguists' intuitions of language change as a dynamical system, we quantify the time course of language change including sudden vs. gradual changes in languages. We apply the computer model to the historical ...
