    • Heterogeneous Multi-Robot Cooperation 

      Parker, Lynne E. (1994-02-01)
      This report addresses the problem of achieving cooperation within small- to medium- sized teams of heterogeneous mobile robots. I describe a software architecture I have developed, called ALLIANCE, that facilitates ...
    • Heuristics for Job-Shop Scheduling 

      Pasch, Kenneth Alan (1988-01-01)
      Two methods of obtaining approximate solutions to the classic General Job-shop Scheduling Program are investigated. The first method is iterative. A sampling of the solution space is used to decide which of a collection ...
    • A Hierarchical Cache Coherent Protocol 

      Wallach, Deborah A. (1992-09-01)
      As the number of processors in distributed-memory multiprocessors grows, efficiently supporting a shared-memory programming model becomes difficult. We have designed the Protocol for Hierarchical Directories (PHD) to ...
    • Hierarchical Object Recognition Using Libraries of Parameterized Model Sub-Parts 

      Ettinger, Gil J. (1987-05-01)
      This thesis describes the development of a model-based vision system that exploits hierarchies of both object structure and object scale. The focus of the research is to use these hierarchies to achieve robust recognition ...
    • Hierarchical Shape Description of Objects by Selection and Modification of Prototypes 

      Hollerbach, John M. (1975-11-01)
      An approach towards shape description, based on prototype modification and generalized cylinders, has been developed and applied to the object domains pottery and polyhedra: (1) A program describes and identifies pottery ...
    • Hypothesis Formation and Evaluation in Medical Diagnosis 

      Rubin, Ann D. (1975-01-01)
      This thesis describes some aspects of a computer system for doing medical diagnosis in the specialized field of kidney disease. Because such a system faces the spectre of combinatorial explosion, this discussion concentrates ...
    • Hypothesizing Device Mechanisms: Opening Up the Black Box 

      Doyle, Richard James (1988-06-01)
      I describe an approach to forming hypotheses about hidden mechanism configurations within devices given external observations and a vocabulary of primitive mechanisms. An implemented causal modelling system called ...
    • Image Chunking: Defining Spatial Building Blocks for Scene Analysis 

      Mahoney, James V. (1987-08-01)
      Rapid judgments about the properties and spatial relations of objects are the crux of visually guided interaction with the world. Vision begins, however, with essentially pointwise representations of the scene, such ...
    • The Image Irradiance Equation: Its Solution and Application 

      Bruss, Anna R. (1981-06-01)
      How much information about the shape of an object can be inferred from its image? In particular, can the shape of an object be reconstructed by measuring the light it reflects from points on its surface? These questions ...
    • Implementation of a Theory of Edge Detection 

      Hildreth, Ellen C. (1980-04-01)
      This report describes the implementation of a theory of edge detection, proposed by Marr and Hildreth (1979). According to this theory, the image is first processed independently through a set of different size filters, ...
    • Implementing Distributed Systems Using Linear Naming 

      Bawden, Alan (1993-03-01)
      Linear graph reduction is a simple computational model in which the cost of naming things is explicitly represented. The key idea is the notion of "linearity". A name is linear if it is only used once, so with linear ...
    • Importance Sampling for Reinforcement Learning with Multiple Objectives 

      Shelton, Christian Robert (2001-08-01)
      This thesis considers three complications that arise from applying reinforcement learning to a real-world application. In the process of using reinforcement learning to build an adaptive electronic market-maker, we find ...
    • Improving Multi-class Text Classification with Naive Bayes 

      Rennie, Jason D. M. (2001-09-01)
      There are numerous text documents available in electronic form. More and more are becoming available every day. Such documents represent a massive amount of information that is easily accessible. Seeking value in this huge ...
    • Information Processing and Transmission in Cellular Automata 

      Banks, Edwin Roger (1971-01-01)
      A cellular automaton is an iterative array of very simple identical information processing machines called cells. Each cell can communicate with neighboring cells. At discrete moments of time the cells can change from ...
    • The Informational Complexity of Learning from Examples 

      Niyogi, Partha (1996-09-01)
      This thesis attempts to quantify the amount of information needed to learn certain tasks. The tasks chosen vary from learning functions in a Sobolev space using radial basis function networks to learning grammars in ...
    • Initial Report on a LISP Programmer's Apprentice 

      Rich, Charles; Shrobe, Howard E. (1976-12-01)
      This is an initial report on the design and partial implementation of a LISP programmers apprentice, an interactive programming system to be used by an expert programmer in the design, coding, and maintenance of large, ...
    • Inspection Methods in Programming 

      Rich, Charles (1981-06-01)
      The work reported here lies in the area of overlap between artificial intelligence software engineering. As research in artificial intelligence, it is a step towards a model of problem solving in the domain of ...
    • Intelligence by Design: Principles of Modularity and Coordination for Engineerin 

      Bryson, Joanna J. (2001-09-01)
      All intelligence relies on search --- for example, the search for an intelligent agent's next action. Search is only likely to succeed in resource-bounded agents if they have already been biased towards finding the right ...
    • Intelligent Market-Making in Artificial Financial Markets 

      Das, Sanmay (2003-06-01)
      This thesis describes and evaluates a market-making algorithm for setting prices in financial markets with asymmetric information, and analyzes the properties of artificial markets in which the algorithm is used. The ...
    • Interaction and Intelligent Behavior 

      Mataric, Maja J. (1994-08-01)
      We introduce basic behaviors as primitives for control and learning in situated, embodied agents interacting in complex domains. We propose methods for selecting, formally specifying, algorithmically implementing, ...
