    • A kernel for distributed and shared memory communication 

      Rao, Ram C (1982)
      Interprocess communication via shared memory has received considerable attention in the past. More recently, there has been a growing interest in communication in distribution environments. This dissertation examines ...
    • Latency-Tolerant Distributed Shared Memory For Data-Intensive Applications 

      Nelson, Jacob Eric
      Grappa is a modern take on software distributed shared memory (DSM) for in-memory data-intensive applications. Grappa enables users to program a cluster as if it were a single, large, non-uniform memory access (NUMA) ...
    • Learning and Exploiting Relational Structure for Efficient Inference 

      Nath, Aniruddh
      One of the central challenges of statistical relational learning is the tradeoff between expressiveness and computational tractability. Representations such as Markov logic can capture rich joint probabilistic models over ...
    • Learning Robust Tractable Models for Vision 

      Gens, Robert Corey
      Human vision is a demanding computation that acts on and learns from billions of moving measurements every second. Computer vision requires models that are both tractable for realtime learning and inference as well as ...
    • Learning to Interpret and Generate Instructional Recipes 

      Kiddon, Chloé
      Enabling computers to interpret and generate instructional language has become increasingly important to our everyday lives: we ask our smartphones to set reminders and send messages; we rely on navigation systems to direct ...
    • Leveraging Knowledge Bases in Web Text Processing 

      Lin, Thomas (2013-04-17)
      The Web contains more text than any other source in human history, and continues to expand rapidly. Computer algorithms to process and extract knowledge from Web text have the potential not only to improve Web search, but ...
    • Leveraging Usage History to Enhance Database Usability 

      Khoussainova, Nodira (2013-02-25)
      More so than ever before, large datasets are being collected and analyzed throughout a variety of disciplines. Examples include social networking data, software logs, scientific data, web clickstreams, sensor network data, ...
    • Lightweight structural summarization as an aid to software evolution 

      Murphy, Gail C. (Gail Cecile), 1965- (1996)
      To effectively perform a change to an existing software system, a software engineer needs to have some understanding of the structure of the system. All too often, though, an engineer must proceed to change a system without ...
    • Linguistically Motivated Combinatory Categorial Grammar Induction 

      Wang, Adrienne
      Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG) is a widely studied grammar formalism that has been used in a variety of NLP applications, e.g., semantic parsing, and machine translation. One key challenge in building effective CCG ...
    • Locati[o]n-based activity recognition 

      Liao, Lin (2006)
      Automatic recognition of human activities can support many applications, from context aware computing to just-in-time information systems to assistive technology for the disabled. Knowledge of a person's location provides ...
    • Low-depth quantum architectures for factoring 

      Pham, Paul (2014-02-24)
      Quantum computing is a new field which combines computer science and quantum physics. Its most famous result, Shor's factoring algorithm, would enable us to one day compromise the widely-used RSA cryptosystem if we are ...
    • Lowering the Barrier to Applying Machine Learning 

      Patel, Kayur Dushyant (2013-02-25)
      Data is driving the future of computation: analysis, visualization, and learning algorithms power systems that help us diagnose cancer, live sustainably, and understand the universe. Yet, the data explosion has outstripped ...
    • Machine learning as massive search 

      Segal, Richard B (1997)
      Machine learning is the inference of general patterns from data. Machine-learning algorithms search large spaces of potential hypotheses for the hypothesis that best fits the data. Since the search space for most induction ...
