Spatial Cognition - Expressive Representation Formalisms and Effective Reasoning Mechanisms

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Future Fellowships)

Start year: 2010

Summary: The next generation of innovative systems such as geo-location services based on Google maps will require sophisticated support from spatial cognition. Current formalisms for spatial knowledge neglect internal structure, lack effective reasoning mechanisms for hybrid spatial constraints, and do not reflect the hierarchical nature of spatial knowledge. This project aims to establish expressive representation formalisms of spatial knowledge and provide effective reasoning mechanisms. I will establish a formal model for representing the internal structure of complex objects, and a hierarchical approach to spatial representation and reasoning, and effective reasoning mechanisms that can cope with hybrid spatial constraints.'',
