Issue Date:September 1989
pp. 61-67
<p>A description is given of the microprocessor configurer system, or Micon, which was designed to provide support for computer hardware designers. The objective of Micon is to reduce the time required to construct a hardware system. The approach to ...
 
Automated Design for Concurrent Engineering
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Timothy P. Darr, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:October 1994
pp. 35-42
<p>Rather than creating a single design and passing it among critiquing agents, Automated Configuration-Design Service (ACDS) generates the entire set of feasible designs at the start of the design process, and narrows it to yield a final design.<...
 
Improving Category Specific Web Search by Learning Query Modifications
Found in: Applications and the Internet, IEEE/IPSJ International Symposium on

The Design of a Microsupercomputer
Found in: Computer
By Trevor N. Mudge, Richard B. Brown, William P. Birmingham, Jeffrey A. Dykstra, Ayman I. Kayssi, Ronald J. Lomax, Oyekunle A. Olukotun, Karem A. Sakallah, Raymond A. Milano
Issue Date:January 1991
pp. 57-64
<p>A description is given of work to develop a prototype microcomputer that will realize the best of both the supercomputer and the microprocessor traditions. It does so by using GaAs MESFET enhancement/depletion direct-coupled FET logic, a high-spee...
 
Toward Inquiry-Based Education Through Interacting Software Agents
Found in: Computer
By Daniel E. Atkins, William P. Birmingham, Edmund H. Durfee, Eric J. Glover, Tracy Mullen, Elke A. Rundensteiner, Elliot Soloway, José M. Vidal, Raven Wallace, Michael P. Wellman
Issue Date:May 1996
pp. 69-76
<p>The University of Michigan Digital Library (UMDL) project is creating an infrastructure for rendering library services over a digital network. When fully developed, the UMDL will provide a wealth of information sources and library services to stud...
 
Architecture of a metasearch engine that supports user information needs
Found in: Proceedings of the eighth international conference on Information and knowledge management (CIKM '99)
By C. Lee Giles, Eric J. Glover, Steve Lawrence, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:November 1999
pp. 210-216
When a query is submitted to a metasearch engine, decisions are made with respect to the underlying search engines to be used, what modifications will be made to the query, and how to score the results. These decisions are typically made by considering onl...
     
An adaptive agent bidding strategy based on stochastic modeling
Found in: Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents (AGENTS '99)
By Edmund H. Durfee, Sunju Park, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:April 1999
pp. 147-153
When creating virtual reality environments a large amount of the interaction needs to be programmed. The problem with this is that non-computer expert users lack the programming skills necessary to create useful applications. Specifying interactions remain...
     
Using decision theory to order documents
Found in: Proceedings of the third ACM conference on Digital libraries (DL '98)
By Eric J. Glover, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:June 1998
pp. 285-286
This presentation focuses on the strategic design planning and vision creation process for the E-Quarium, the online complement to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. More than six months of informed investigation and analysis resulted in an ambitious redesign of t...
     
The minimization and decomposition of interface state machines
Found in: Proceedings of the 31st annual conference on Design automation conference (DAC '94)
By Ajay J. Daga, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:June 1994
pp. 120-125
A new gridless router accelerated by Content Addressable Memory (CAM) is presented. A gridless version of the line-expansion algorithm is implemented, which always finds a path if one exists. The router runs in linear time by means of the CAM-based acceler...

A new gridless router accelerated by Content Addressable Memory (CAM) is presented. A gridless version of the line-expansion algorithm is implemented, which always finds a path if one exists. The router runs in linear time by means of the CAM-based acceler...
     
Failure recovery in the MICON system
Found in: Conference proceedings on 27th ACM/IEEE design automation conference (DAC '90)
By Ajay Daga, William P. Birmingham
Issue Date:June 1990
