      Huang, Orton T., 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
      SpecTRM is a CAD system for digital automation. The intent of SpecTRM is to assist engineers in managing the requirements, design and evolution process aspects of developing software. The purpose of this thesis project is ...
    • Visualizations for mental health topic models 

      Chen, Ge (Ge Jackie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
      Crisis Text Line supports people with mental health issues through texting. Unfortunately, support is limited by the number of counselors and the time each counselor has for clients, as well as the cognitive load on ...
    • Visualizations for model tracking and predictions in machine learning 

      Lee, Wei-En (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      Building machine learning models is often an exploratory and iterative process. A data scientist frequently builds and trains hundreds of models with different parameters and feature sets in order to find one that meets ...
    • Visualizing adversaries : transparent pooling approaches for decision support in cybersecurity 

      Prado Sánchez, Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      Using coevolutionary algorithms to find solutions to problems is a powerful search technique but once solutions are identified it can be difficult for a decision maker to select a solution to deploy. ESTABLO runs multiple ...
    • Visualizing and analyzing human-centered data streams 

      Lambert, Michel Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
      The mainstream population is readily adapting to the notion that the carrying of mobile computational devices such as cell phones and PDAs on one's person is as essential as taking along one's watch or credit cards. In ...
    • Visualizing and interpreting convolutional neural networks on genomic data 

      Liu, Ge, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      Deep learning's capability to learn derived features through a hierarchy of non-linear layers has proven superior to other machine learning methods. However, interpretation of the resulting genomic deep learning networks ...
    • Visualizing and modeling Peri-Urban drinking water supply and planning in Pune, Maharashtra 

      Hui, Rebecca (Rebecca C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      As cities grow and rural fringes are urbanized, an in-between village state is emerging, that scholars are attempting to categorize as "Peri-Urban". Yet there are no existing models to quantify the population movements, ...
    • Visualizing communication : the changing medium of information in library 

      Kim, Myoungkeun, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
      In the area of normal language, there is a ground language that makes abstract language possible. Likewise, the hypothesis in this project is that there are two systems of language in architecture. The language that has ...
    • Visualizing database queries 

      Vartak, Manasi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
      Data analysts operating on large volumes of data often rely on visualizations to interpret the results of queries. However, finding the right visualization for a query is a laborious and time-consuming task. We propose ...
    • Visualizing exercise hidden in everyday activity 

      Hirzel, Timothy David, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
      Obesity in the United States has reached epidemic proportions and inactivity is a key factor in this health problem. One difficulty in promoting an active lifestyle is the idea that getting enough "exercise" means jogging, ...
    • Visualizing health : imagery as data for changing personal practice 

      Frost, Jeana (Jeana H.), 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
      This thesis is about diabetics and their theories about their health practices. Daily decisions, such as eating and exercise habits, have clear consequences for a diabetic's health, yet many of them fail to change their ...
    • Visualizing inference 

      Henke, Joseph D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
