    • The Measurement of Visual Motion 

      Hildreth, Ellen C.; Ullman, Shimon (1982-12-01)
      The analysis of visual motion divides naturally into two stages: the first is the measurement of motion, for example, the assignment of direction and magnitude of velocity to elements in the image, on the basis of the ...
    • Mechanical Arm Control 

      Waters, Richard C. (1979-10-01)
      This paper discusses three main problems associated with the control of the motion of a mechanical arm. 1) Transformation between different coordinate systems associated with the arm. 2) Calculation of detailed ...
    • A Mechanical Arm Control System 

      Waters, Richard C. (1974-01-01)
      This paper describes a proposed mechanical arm control system and some of the lines of thought which led to this design. In particular, the paper discusses the basic systme required in order for the arm to control its ...
    • Message-Driven Processor Architecture: Verson 11 

      Dally, William; Chien, Andrew; Fiske, Stuart; Horwat, Waldemar; Keen, John; e.a. (1988-08-01)
      The Message-Driven Processor is a node of a large-scale multiprocessor being developed by the Concurrent VLSI Architecture Group. It is intended to support fine-grained, message passing, parallel computation. It contains ...
    • Meta-Rules: Reasoning About Control 

      Davis; Randall (1980-03-01)
      How can we insure that knowledge embedded in a program is applied effectively? Traditionally the answer to this question has been sought in different problem solving paradigms and in different approaches to encoding ...
    • METEOR: A LISP Interpreter for String Transformations 

      Bobrow, Daniel G. (1963-04-01)
      Conditional expressions, composition and recursion are the basic operations used in LISP to define functions on list structures. Any computable function of arbitrarily complex list structures may be described using these ...
    • A Method for Computing Spectral Reflectance 

      Yuille, A. (1984-12-01)
      Psychophysical experiments show that the perceived colour of an object is relatively independent of the spectrum of the incident illumination and depends only on the surface reflectance. We demonstrate a possible ...
    • A Method for Eliminating Skew Introduced by Non-Uniform Buffer Delay and Wire Lengths in Clock Distribution Trees 

      Wu, Henry M. (1993-04-01)
      The computation of a piecewise smooth function that approximates a finite set of data points is decomposed into two decoupled tasks: first, the computation of the locally smooth models, and hence, the segmentation of ...
    • A Method for Skew-free Distribution of Digital Signals Using Matched Variable Delay Lines 

      Knight, Thomas; Wu, Henry M. (1992-03-01)
      The ability to distribute signals everywhere in a circuit with controlled and known delays is essential in large, high-speed digital systems. We present a technique by which a signal driver can adjust the arrival time ...
    • Micro-Planner Reference Manual 

      Sussman, Gerald; Winograd, Terry (1970-07-01)
      Micro-Planner is an implementation of a subset of Cal Hewitt's language, PLANNER by Gerald Jay Sussman, Terry Winograd, and Eugene Charniak on the AI group computer in LISP. Micro-Planner is now a publically accessible ...
    • Micro-Planner Reference Manual (Update) 

      Sussman, Gerald Jay; Winograd, Terry; Charniak, Eugene (1971-12-01)
      This is a manual for the use of the Micro Planner interpreter, which implements a subset of Carl Hewitt's language, PLANNER and is now available for use by the Artificial Intelligence Group.
    • Microelectronics In Nerve Cells: Dendritic Morphology and Information Processing 

      Poggio, T.; Torre, V. (1981-10-01)
      The electrical properties of the different anatomical types of retinal ganglion cells in the cat were calculated on the basis of passive cable theory from measurements made on histological material provided by Boycott ...
    • MIDAS 

      Samson, Peter (1968-10-01)
      The MIDAS linking loader is a PDP-6 program to load relocatable-format output from the MIDAS assemblers, with facilities to handle symbolic cross-reference between independently assembled programs. Although it is arranged ...
    • Mini-Robot Proposal to ARPA 

      Minsky, Marvin (1972-01-01)
      During the next decade it will become practical to use more and more sophisticated techniques of automation--we shall call this "robotics"--both in established industries and in new areas. The rate at which these techniques ...
    • Minimizing Statistical Bias with Queries 

      Cohn, David A. (1995-09-01)
      I describe an exploration criterion that attempts to minimize the error of a learner by minimizing its estimated squared bias. I describe experiments with locally-weighted regression on two simple kinematics problems, ...
    • The Minimum Energy Movement for a Spring Muscle Model 

      Hollerbach, John M. (1977-09-01)
      There are many ways of programming an actuator or effector for movement between the same two points. In the interest of efficiency it is sometimes desirable to program that trajectory which requires the least amount ...
    • A Miscellaney of Convert Programming 

      McIntosh, Harold V.; Guzman, Adolfo (1967-04-01)
      CONVERT shares with other programming languages the circumstance that it is was easier to evaluate the language and to learn its uses if it is possible to scrutinize a representative sample of programs which effect typical ...
    • MIT SchMUSE: Class-Based Remote Delegation in a Capricious Distributed Environment 

      Blair, Michael R.; Cohen, Natalya; LaMacchia, David M.; Zuzga, Brian K. (1993-02-01)
      MIT SchMUSE (pronounced "shmooz") is a concurrent, distributed, delegation-based object-oriented interactive environment with persistent storage. It is designed to run in a "capricious" network environment, where servers ...
