    • Estimating Stereo Disparities 

      Minsky, Marvin (1967-02-01)
      An interesting practical and theoretical problem is putting bounds on how much computation one needs to find the stereo-disparity between two narrow-angle stereo scenes. By narrow angle I mean situations wherein the angle ...
    • Estimating the Illuminant Color from the Shading of a Smooth Surface 

      Lee, Hsien-Che (1988-08-01)
      \0\05{\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0 a uniform wall illuminated by a spot light often gives a strong impression of the illuminant color. How can it be possible to know if it is a white wall illuminated by yellow light or a yellow ...
    • Estimation of Discontinuous Displacement Vector Fields with the Minimum Description Length Criterion 

      Dengler, Joachim (1990-10-01)
      A new noniterative approach to determine displacement vector fields with discontinuities is described. In order to overcome the limitations of current methods, the problem is regarded as a general modelling problem. ...
    • Estimation of Inertial Parameters of Rigid Body Links of Manipulators 

      An, Chae H.; Atkeson, Christopher G.; Hollerbach, John M. (1986-02-01)
      A method of estimating the mass, the location of center of mass, and the moments of inertia of each rigid body link of a robot during general manipulator movement is presented. The algorithm is derived from the ...
    • Estimation of Pose and Illuminant Direction for Face Processing 

      Brunelli, Roberto (1994-11-01)
      In this paper three problems related to the analysis of facial images are addressed: the illuminant direction, the compensation of illumination effects and, finally, the recovery of the pose of the face, restricted to ...
    • EUTERPE A Computer Language for the Expression of Musical Ideas 

      Smoliar, Stephen (1967-04-01)
      The electronic medium has vastly increased the amount of material available to the contemporary composer. The various pieces of electronic equipment available today allow one to produce any conceivable sound; yet ...
    • EUTERPE-LISP: A LISP System with Music Output 

      Smoliar, Stephen (1967-09-01)
      EUTERPE (Ai memo no. 129) was designed as a "real-time music program" which would interpret music described as "voice-programs" in DDT. These voice-programs consisted of note words, description of tones to be sounded, and ...
    • The Evaluation and Cultivation of Spatial and Linguistic Abilities in Individuals with Cerebral Palsy 

      Weir, Sylvia (1979-10-01)
      The work of the Cerebral Palsy project (members: Seymour Papert, Sylvia Weir, Jose Valente and Gary Drescher) over the past eighteen months is summarized, and the next phase of activity is outlined. The issues to be ...
    • Evaluation of sets of oriented and non-oriented receptive fields as local descriptors 

      Yokono, Jerry Jun; Poggio, Tomaso (2004-03-24)
      Local descriptors are increasingly used for the task of object recognition because of their perceived robustness with respect to occlusions and to global geometrical deformations. We propose a performance criterion for a ...
    • Evidence for a Fifth, Smaller Channel in Early Human Vision 

      Marr, D.; Hildreth, E.; Poggio, T. (1979-08-01)
      Recent studies in psychophysics and neurophysiology suggest that the human visual system utilizes a range of different size or spatial frequency tuned mechanisms in its processing of visual information. It has been ...
    • Evidence Relating Subjective Contours and Interpretations Involving Occlusion 

      Stevens, Kent A. (1981-06-01)
      Subjective contours, according to one theory, outline surfaces that are apparently interposed between the viewer and background (because of the disruption of background figures, sudden termination of lines, and other ...
    • Evolving Robocode Tank Fighters 

      Eisenstein, Jacob (2003-10-28)
      In this paper, I describe the application of genetic programming to evolve a controller for a robotic tank in a simulated environment. The purpose is to explore how genetic techniques can best be applied to produce ...
    • Exact Solution of the Nonlinear Dynamics of Recurrent Neural Mechanisms for Direction Selectivity 

      Giese, M.A.; Xie, X. (2002-08-01)
      Different theoretical models have tried to investigate the feasibility of recurrent neural mechanisms for achieving direction selectivity in the visual cortex. The mathematical analysis of such models has been restricted ...
    • Example Based Image Analysis and Synthesis 

      Beymer, David; Shashua, Amnon; Poggio, Tomaso (1993-11-01)
      Image analysis and graphics synthesis can be achieved with learning techniques using directly image examples without physically-based, 3D models. In our technique: -- the mapping from novel images to a vector of "pose" ...
    • Example Based Learning for View-Based Human Face Detection 

      Sung, Kah Kay; Poggio, Tomaso (1995-01-24)
      We present an example-based learning approach for locating vertical frontal views of human faces in complex scenes. The technique models the distribution of human face patterns by means of a few view-based "face'' and ...
    • Experience with Acore: Implementing GHC with Actors 

      Palmucci, Jeff; Waldsburger, Carl; Duis, David; Krause, Paul (1990-08-01)
      This paper presents a concurrent interpreter for a general-purpose concurrent logic programming language, Guarded Horn Clauses (GHC). Unlike typical implementations of GHC in logic programming languages, the interpreter ...
    • Experimental Markets for Product Concepts 

      Chan, Nicholas T.; Dahan, Ely; Lo, Andrew W.; Poggio, Tomaso (2001-07-01)
      Market prices are well known to efficiently collect and aggregate diverse information regarding the value of commodities and assets. The role of markets has been particularly suitable to pricing financial securities. This ...
    • Expert Systems: Where Are We? And Where Do We Go from Here? 

      Davis; Randall (1982-06-01)
