    • Manipulators and Manipulation in high dimensional spaces 

      Kumar, Vikash
      Hand manipulation is one of the most complex form of biological movements. Despite its significance in multiple fields such as biomechanics, neuroscience, robotics and graphics, our understanding of dexterous manipulation ...
    • Measuring and Improving Security and Privacy on the Web: Case Studies with QR Codes, Third-Party Tracking, and Archives 

      Lerner, Ada
      The web is deeply integrated into the economic, governmental, and social fabrics of our society, and it promises to help fulfill people's diverse and critical needs more easily, cheaper, faster, and more democratically. ...
    • Mobile Camera-Based Systems for Low-Resource Environments 

      Dell, Nicola Lee
      The suitability of mobile devices for data collection and decision support in developing countries has been well established. It is now relatively common for field workers to carry devices that help them decide what questions ...
    • Model-Agnostic Explanations and Evaluation of Machine Learning 

      Correia Ribeiro, Marco Tulio
      Despite many successes, complex machine learning systems are limited in their impact due to several issues regarding communication with humans: they are functionally black boxes, hard to debug and hard to evaluate properly. ...
    • Model-Based Self-Supervision for Fine-Grained Image Understanding 

      Schmidt, Tanner
      In order to enable robots that perform tasks capably, efficiently, and safely in dynamic environments, we'll need vision systems that are adaptable and can reliably provide detailed and accurate information about the world ...
    • Modeling Systems from Logs of their Behavior 

      Beschastnikh, Ivan (2013-07-25)
      Billions of people rely on correct and efficient execution of large systems, such as the distributed systems that power Google and Facebook. Yet these systems are complex and challenging to build and understand. Logging ...
    • Motif-based mining of protein sequences 

      Liu, Agatha H (2002)
      We introduce CASTOR, an automatic, unsupervised system for protein motif discovery and classification. Given amino acid sequences for a group of proteins, CASTOR generates statistically significant motifs and constructs a ...
    • Multi-versioned Data Storage and Iterative Processing in a Parallel Array Database Engine 

      Soroush, Emad
      Scientists today are able to generate data at an unprecedented scale and rate. For example the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) generates 200GB of data containing millions of objects on each night on its routine operation. ...
    • Natural Language as a Scaffold for Visual Recognition 

      Yatskar, Mark
      A goal of artificial intelligence is to create a system that can perceive and understand the visual world through images. Central to this goal is defining what exactly should be recognized, both in structure and coverage. ...
    • Neural Models for Large-Scale Semantic Role Labelling 

      FitzGerald, Nicholas Arthur
      Recovering predicate-argument structures from natural language sentences is an important task in natural language processing (NLP), where the goal is to identify ``who did what to whom'' with respect to events described ...
    • New Algorithmic Tools for Distributed Similarity Search and Edge Estimation 

      Rashtchian, Cyrus
      We present several foundational results on computational questions related to similarity search, clustering, and parameter estimation. The problems center around the theme of improving algorithms by utilizing geometric or ...
    • New Techniques in Deep Representation Learning 

      Andrew, Galen Michael
      The choice of feature representation can have a large impact on the success of a machine learning algorithm at solving a given problem. Although human engineers employing task-specific domain knowledge still play a key ...
    • Object Recognition and Semantic Scene Labeling for RGB-D Data 

      Lai, Kevin Kar Wai (2014-02-24)
      The availability of RGB-D (Kinect-like) cameras has led to an explosive growth of research on robot perception. RGB-D cameras provide high resolution (640 x 480) synchronized videos of both color (RGB) and depth (D) at 30 ...
    • On profit maximization in mechanism design 

      Cary, Matthew, 1974- (2007)
      Mechanism design is a subfield of game theory and microeconomics focused on incentive engineering. A mechanism is a protocol, typically taking the form of an auction, that is explicitly designed so that rational but ...
    • On the use and performance of communication primitives in software controlled cache-coherent cluster architectures 

      Qin, Xiaohan, 1964- (1997)
      Two recent trends are affecting the design of medium-scale shared-memory multi-processors. The first is the use of nodes which themselves consist of clusters of processors. Clusters, already available as commodity parts, ...
    • Open Data Kit: Technologies for Mobile Data Collection and Deployment Experiences in Developing Regions 

      Hartung, Carl (2012-09-13)
      Gathering information accurately and quickly is essential for enabling organizations working in low-resource settings to have timely and sustainable impact. Due to insufficient infrastructure, many organizations currently ...
