    • The S4 infrastructure management system 

      Toste Gomes, Rodrigo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
      This thesis describes the design and implementation of a system for managing the infrastructure supporting a course relying on a large computer lab. Students' information privacy and security was an important focus in the ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Scalable design of high-performance on-chip Terahertz source and imager 

      Hu, Zhi, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      In this thesis, two chip designs using the scalable array architecture are introduced. Firstly, we introduce a scalable architecture of coherent harmonic oscillator array for high-power and collimated radiation beam at ...
    • Scalable distributed router mechanisms to encourage network congestion avoidance

    • Scalable information-sharing network management 

      Guo, Nina X. (Nina Xiaoyu) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
      This thesis analyzes scalable information-sharing network management. It looks into one of the large problems in network management today: finding information across different network domains. Information-sharing network ...
    • A scalable location service for geographic ad hoc routing 

      Li, Jinyang, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
      GLS is a new distributed location service which tracks mobile node locations. GLS combined with geographic forwarding allows the construction of ad hoc mobile networks that scale to a larger number of nodes than possible ...
    • Scalable memory management using a distributed buddy allocator 

      Modzelewski, Kevin (Kevin Paul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
