A computational framework for unsupervised analysis of everyday human activities
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-07)
In order to make computers proactive and assistive, we must enable them to perceive, learn, and predict what is happening in their surroundings. This presents us with the challenge of formalizing computational models of ...
Extreme dimensionality reduction for text learning : cluster-generated feature spaces
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
Constructive Adaptive Visual Analogy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-08-11)
Visual knowledge appears to be an important part of problem solving, but the role of visual knowledge in analogical problem solving is still somewhat mysterious. In this work I present the Constructive Adaptive Visual ...
Switching linear dynamic systems with higher-order temporal structure
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07-06)
Automated analysis of temporal data is a task of utmost importance for intelligent machines. For example, ubiquitous computing systems need to understand the intention of humans from the stream of sensory information, and ...
Understanding user engagement in immersive and interactive stories
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-09-23)
Popular science fiction often proffers the Holodeck vision for future immersive media: a seamless and transparent interface connecting users to a virtual world where they transform into a story character and influence ...
Countering murphys law: the use of anticipation and improvisation via an episodic memory in support of intelligent robot behavior
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-10-21)
Recently in robotics, substantial efforts have been invested on critical applications such as military, nursing, and search-and-rescue. These applications are critical in a sense that the robots may directly deal with human ...
From Shape to Function: Acquisition of Teleological Models from Design Drawings by Compositional Analogy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-10-18)
Visual media are of great importance to designers. Understanding a new design, for example, often means understanding a drawing. From the perspective of artificial intelligence, this implies that automated knowledge ...
Context-sensitive asynchronous memory : a general experience-based method for managing information access in cognitive agents
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-08)
