In recent years, many advances have been made in cryptography, as well as in the performance of communication networks and processors. As a result, many advanced cryptographic protocols are now efficient enough to be considered practical, yet research in the area remains largely theoretical and little work has been done to use these protocols in practice,(More)
We believe that one of the major impediments to involvement in the field of robotics and AI is the difficulty end-users face in creating viable robot control policies. We seek to address this difficulty with lifelong robot learning and have developed an intuitive robot control interface using the Nintendo Wii remote to aid in this task. From three large(More)
In this note, we will survey the local search heuristics for the metric k-median and facility location problems. We define the locality gap of a local search heuristics for a minimization problem as the maximum ratio of local optimal solution (produced by local search heuristics) to the global optimal solution. For k-median, the local search with single(More)
