We suggest that an appropriate role of early visual processing is to describe a scene in terms of intrinsic (vertical) characteristics-such as range, orientation, reflectance, and incident illumination-of the surface element visible at each point in the image. Support for this idea comes from three sources: the obvious utility of intrinsic characteristics(More)
The Palo Alto Collaborative Testbed (PACT), a concurrent engineering infrastructure that encompasses multiple sites, subsystems, and disciplines, is discussed. The PACT systems include NVisage, a distributed knowledge-based integration environment for design tools; DME (Device Modeling Environment), a model formulation and simulation environment; Next-Cut,(More)
Parametric correspondence is a technique for matching images to a three dimensional symbolic reference map. An analytic camera model is used to predict the location and appearance of landmarks in the image, generating a projection for an assumed viewpoint. Correspondence is achieved by adjusting the parameters of the camera model until the appearances of(More)
Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence conference invited talk " AI Meets Web 2.0: Building the Web of Tomorrow, Today " presented by Jay M. Tenenbaum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylva-nia. I invited Marty to deliver that talk at IAAI-05 because he is a true AI and web visionary. It is common in times of grade inflation and hyperbole that speakers and(More)
Information shying and decision coordination arc central problems for collab-orative product dcvclopmcnt and enterprise-wide coordination. Designcrs, manufacturing cnginccrs, and marketing engineers nccd to assess the impact of their decisions and notify affected parties as the product evolves. Yct, cxisting CAD tools tend to isolate information at tool(More)
C ommerceNet's eCo System initiative, launched in 1996, aims to transform the WorldWide Web into an agent-based infrastructure for Internet commerce. Today's Web gives people unprecedented access to online information and services. But its information is delivered in format-oriented, handcrafted hypertext markup language (HTML), making it understandable(More)
While advanced melanoma remains one of the most challenging cancers, recent developments in our understanding of the molecular drivers of this disease have uncovered exciting opportunities to guide personalized therapeutic decisions. Genetic analyses of melanoma have uncovered several key molecular pathways that are involved in disease onset and(More)
olitical, economic, and technological forces are changing the landscape of engineering. As the world's economies become more interconnected and more competitive, there is an increasing need for organizations to form joint design and manufacturing teams that collaborate for the life of a project and then disperse. For example, a new electromechanical product(More)
Information sharing and decision coordination are central problems for large-scale product development. This paper proposes a framework for supporting a knowledge medium 32]: a computational environment in which explicitly represented knowledge serves as a communication medium among people and their programs. The framework is designed to support information(More)
