  • Ciccarelli, Eugene C., IV (1984-08-01)
    A prototype presentation system base is described. It offers mechanisms, tools, and ready-made parts for building user interfaces. A general user interface model underlies the base, organized around the concept of a ...
  • Berwick, Robert C. (1987-06-01)
    During the past few years, there has been much discussion of a shift from rule-based systems to principle-based systems for natural language processing. This paper outlines the major computational advantages of ...
  • Sobalvarro, Patrick G. (1992-04-01)
    We present methods of calculating the value of two performance parameters for multipath, multistage interconnection networks: the normalized throughput and the probability of successful message transmission. We develop ...
  • Marroquin, Jose Luis (1985-09-01)
    In this thesis we study the general problem of reconstructing a function, defined on a finite lattice from a set of incomplete, noisy and/or ambiguous observations. The goal of this work is to demonstrate the generality ...
  • Winograd, Terry (1971-01-01)
    This paper describes a system for the computer understanding of English. The system answers questions, executes commands, and accepts information in normal English dialog. It uses semantic information and context to ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1996-12-01)
    These proceedings summarize the results of the First PHANToM User's Group Workshop held September 27-30, 1996 MIT. The goal of the workshop was to bring together a group of active users of the PHANToM Haptic Interface ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1999-11-04)
    This Report contains the proceedings of the Fourth Phantom Users Group Workshop contains 17 papers presented October 9-12, 1999 at MIT Endicott House in Dedham Massachusetts. The workshop included sessions on, Tools ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1997-12-01)
    On October 19-22, 1997 the Second PHANToM Users Group Workshop was held at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Massachusetts. Designed as a forum for sharing results and insights, the workshop was attended by more than 60 ...
  • Hall, Robert Joseph (1991-02-01)
    Introducing function sharing into designs allows eliminating costly structure by adapting existing structure to perform its function. This can eliminate many inefficiencies of reusing general componentssin specific ...
  • Nagpal, Radhika (2001-06-01)
    In this thesis I present a language for instructing a sheet of identically-programmed, flexible, autonomous agents (``cells'') to assemble themselves into a predetermined global shape, using local interactions. The ...
  • Winston, Patrick H. (1973-05-01)
    The Vision Flashes are informal working papers intended primarily to stimulate internal interaction among participants in the A.I. Laboratory's Vision and Robotics group. Many of them report highly tentative conclusions ...
  • Hall, Miguel (1996-06-01)
    The MIT Prototype Educational Assessment System provides subjects and courses at MIT with the ability to perform online assessment. The system includes polices to handle harassment and electronic "flaming" while ...
  • Williams, Brian C. (1984-07-01)
    With the push towards sub-micron technology, transistor models have become increasingly complex. The number of components in integrated circuits has forced designer's efforts and skills towards higher levels of design. ...
  • Kleer, Johan De (1975-12-01)
    This thesis investigates what knowledge is necessary to solve mechanics problems. A program NEWTON is described which understands and solves problems in mechanics mini-world of objects moving on surfaces. Facts and ...
  • Brown, Allen (1976-11-01)
    This report investigates some techinques appropriate to representing the knowledge necessary for understanding a class of electronic machines -- radio receivers. A computational performance model - WATSON - is presented. ...
  • Forbus, Kenneth D. (1984-07-01)
    Objects move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, compress and boil. These and other things that cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand common sense ...
  • Steele, Guy Lewis, Jr. (1978-05-01)
    We have developed a compiler for the lexically-scoped dialect of LISP known as SCHEME. The compiler knows relatively little about specific data manipulation primitives such as arithmetic operators, but concentrates ...
  • Hutchinson, James M. (1993-12-01)
    Nonlinear multivariate statistical techniques on fast computers offer the potential to capture more of the dynamics of the high dimensional, noisy systems underlying financial markets than traditional models, while ...
  • Moore, Robert Carter (1975-12-01)
    One very useful idea in AI research has been the notion of an explicit model of a problem situation. Procedural deduction languages, such as PLANNER, have been valuable tools for building these models. But PLANNER and its ...
  • Steels, Luc (1979-06-01)
    This report describes a domain independent reasoning system. The system uses a frame-based knowledge representation language and various reasoning techniques including constraint propagation, progressive refinement, ...
