 In this thesis, I designed, implemented, and tested a machine learning learning system designed to crowdsource feature discovery called Feature Factory. Feature Factory provides a complete webbased platform for users to define, extract, and test features on any given machine learning problem. This project involved designing, implementing, and testing a proofofconcep....

 This thesis develops probabilistic programming as a productive metaphor for understanding cognition, both with respect to mental representations and the manipulation of such representations. In the first half of the thesis, I demonstrate the representational power of probabilistic programs in the domains of concept learning and social reasoning. I provide examples of ri....

 In this work, we propose a system that allows casual users to design ground robots that can be easily fabricated with a 3D printer. The system leverages a database of examples created by expert roboticists. A composition tool imbedded in this system allows the users to create new designs by composing parts from the robots in this database. The system automatically ensur....

 Pharmaceutical manufacturing has traditionally been considered largely a matter of regulatory compliance. Consequently, it has been inefficient, but it is now increasingly being recognized as an opportunity for cost reduction. Recent initiatives by regulatory authorities, and by the industry, aim at easing regulations and encouraging process innovation. Even though sign....
