    • Saccade latency determination using video recordings from consumer-grade devices 

      Saavedra-Peña, Gladynel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      Accurate quantification of neurodegenerative disease progression and neurocognitive decline is an ongoing challenge that muddles efforts to understand and treat these conditions. The golden standard to track neurodegenerative ...
    • SAL : a Self-Aware Learning system 

      Thrush, Tristan Andrew Fraser. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
      In this thesis, I take a step towards understanding how and why humans learn to solve problems about their solving of problems. I present a general-purpose neural reinforcement learning system called SAL, which can learn ...
    • Salient movies 

      Karahalios, Karrie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
    • Sampling based on local bandwidth 

      Wei, Dennis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
      The sampling of continuous-time signals based on local bandwidth is considered in this thesis. In an intuitive sense, local bandwidth refers to the rate at which a signal varies locally. One would expect that signals should ...
    • A sampling technique based on LDPC codes 

      Zhang, Xuhong, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
      Given an inference problem, it is common that exact inference algorithms are computationally intractable and one has to resort to approximate inference algorithms. Monte Carlo methods, which rely on repeated sampling of ...
    • Sampling-based planning for hybrid systems via reachability guidance and policy approximation 

      Wu, Albert. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
      Hybrid systems arise in many robotic problems such as manipulation and locomotion, and efficient motion planning is critical for obtaining practical implementations of these systems. However, due to the complexity associated ...
    • Sanitizing private data for repair systems 

      Fang, Katherine Jien-Yin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
      The SOLAR system helps restore interconnected system integrity after security attacks with a focus of minimizing the exposure of sensitive data in the repair logs. It builds upon Warp, a repair system for Django web ...
    • Saturation and luminance control in color image processing 

      Curtis, Susan Roberta (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
    • Scalability and interpretability of graph neural networks for small molecules 

      Sangha, Manjot. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      In this thesis I examine the use of graph neural networks for prediction tasks in chemistry with an emphasis on interpretable and scalable methods. I propose a novel kernel-inspired graph neural network architecture, called ...
    • Scalability in an International Naming System 

      Lilley, Jeremy (Jeremy Joseph), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    • Scalable black-box model explainability through low-dimensional visualizations 

      Sinha, Aradhana (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      Two methods are proposed to provide visual intuitive explanations for how black-box models work. The first is a projection pursuit-based method that seeks to provide data-point specific explanations. The second is a ...
    • A scalable Byzantine fault tolerant secure domain name system 

      Ahmed, Sarah, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
      The domain name system is the standard mechanism on the Internet to advertise and access important information about hosts. At its inception, DNS was not designed to be a secure protocol. The biggest security hole in DNS ...
    • Scalable coding of HDTV pictures using the MPEG coder 

      Lawai, Adnan Husain (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
    • Scalable creation of spin-photon interfaces for solid-state quantum information processing 

      Wan, Noel H. (Noel Heng Loon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      The negatively charged nitrogen vacancy (NV) defect center in diamond is a promising solid-state qubit due to its exceptional spin and optical properties. In this thesis, we develop high-yield, efficient spin-photon ...
