Representing and acquiring geographic knowledge.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This book presents an original theory of how a robot could be programmed to learn a neighbourhood from seeing it, and how knowledge of a neighbourhood can be represented, used and improved. There is a uniform treatment of positional and shape information, and the varieties of partial information which can be handled separately. Major themes discussed are; spatial learning; representations of space; information retrieval, matching and merging. A review of artificial intelligence is given along with a working program for driving the robot, and sections also cover representational problems in artificial intelligence, computational geometry, and the psychology of cognitive maps.-after Author
