  • Herbst, Evan
    In this work we tackle the problem of segmenting rigid objects using various types of motion cues. The setting is that of personal robotics, in which robots generally have cameras and arms, and are capable of manipulating ...
  • Guillory, Andrew Russell (2012-09-13)
    Active learning is a machine learning setting where the learning algorithm decides what data is labeled. Submodular functions are a class of set functions for which many optimization problems have efficient exact or ...
  • Birnbaum, Benjamin (2013-02-25)
    Surveys are one of the principal means of gathering critical data from low-income regions. Bad data, however, may be no better--or worse--than no data at all. Interviewer data fabrication, one cause of bad data, is an ...
  • Moharrami, Mohammad (2013-11-14)
    Metric embeddings constitute one of the fundamental tools for exploiting the underlying geometric structure of many combinatorial problems. In this dissertation we study some of the applications of metric embeddings in the ...
  • Andrew, Adrienne Hope (2013-04-17)
    A healthy diet has the power to both prevent and heal disease, and the high rates of lifestyle- and diet-related disease in America indicates the need for tools to help improve diet. Self-monitoring one's food intake is ...
  • Esmaeilzadeh, Hadi (2013-11-14)
    Starting in 2004, the microprocessor industry has shifted to multicore scaling--increasing the number of cores per die each technology generation--as its principal strategy for continuing performance growth. This work first ...
  • Andersen, Erik
    A key challenge in education is how provide support that is tailored to the learner's individual needs. Effective teachers and curricula typically provide such support, often referred to as instructional scaffolding, through ...

    Stochastic Optimal Control is an elegant and general framework for specifying and solving control problems. However, a number of issues have impeded its adoption in practical situations. In this thesis, we describe algorithmic ...
  • Bergan, Thomas (2014-04-30)
    This dissertation makes two high-level contributions: First, we propose an algorithm to perform symbolic execution of multithreaded programs from arbitrary program contexts. We argue that this can enable more efficient ...
  • Buettner, Michael (2013-02-25)
    RF-powered computers operate using energy they harvest from radio frequency (RF) signals. Compared to battery powered devices, they have the advantages of being small and long-lived as they do not need to carry an onboard ...
  • Wampler, Kevin (2013-04-17)
    While the animation of humans is a well established topic in computer graphics, the animation of animals remains far less explored. Part of this is because in contrast to the wealth of easily obtainable motion data for ...
  • Fan, Sandra Benxin (2013-07-23)
    In an increasingly connected world, there are ever more opportunities for online collaboration. As the potential for more collaborators grows, so does the complexity of such communications. Problem solving, already a ...
  • Amershi, Saleema (2013-02-25)
    End-user interactive machine learning is a promising tool for enhancing human capabilities with data. Recent work has shown that we can create specific applications that employ end-user interactive machine learning. However, ...
  • Devietti, Joseph (2013-04-17)
    Nondeterminism is one of the main reasons that parallel programming is so difficult. Bugs can vanish when programs are rerun or run under a debugger, thwarting attempts at their removal. Stress-testing is a common practice ...
  • Tseng, Huei-Hun Elizabeth (2013-02-25)
    Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are functional transcripts that do not code for proteins. Many of them play indispensible roles in the cell. For example, the ribosomal RNAs make up the ribosome that is the factory for making ...
  • RIngenburg, Michael (2014-04-30)
    Energy efficiency is a key concern in the design of modern computer systems. One promising approach to energy-efficient computation, <italic>approximate computing</italic>, trades off output precision for energy efficiency. ...
  • Zhang, Sai
    This dissertation presents five program analysis techniques for improving automated software testing and error diagnosis. Two techniques aim to help software developers build reliable software and three techniques assist ...
  • Gupta, Sidhant
    Imagine an energy feedback system that displays not only your total power consumption, but also continuously shows real-time usage while breaking it down categorically by electrical appliances. In addition, such a system ...
  • Chang, Jessica (2013-11-14)
    The subject of this thesis concerns algorithmic aspects of energy-related trends in computation. Within recent years, the computationally heaviest jobs are executed over massive corpora residing at data centers, whose ...
