Learning-based Correlation Analysis Between Laser Speckle and Surface Size Distribution (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2023-02)Extracting quantitative information about highly scattering surfaces from an imaging system is challenging because the phase of the scattered light undergoes multiple folds upon propagation, resulting in complex speckle ...
A Dynamic Primitives Hypothesis: a Descriptive Model of Human Physical Interaction (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2023-02)Physical interaction is a key aspect of activities of daily living. These tasks require simultaneous regulation of both force and motion. For example, even a task as simple as opening a door presents a challenge to the ...
Context and Participation in Machine Learning (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2023-02)ML systems are shaped by human choices and norms, from problem conceptualization to deployment. They are then used in complex socio-technical contexts, where they interact with and affect diverse populations. However, ...
