Although there has been much progress in developing theories, models
and systems in the areas of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and
Vision Processing (VP) there has heretofore been little progress on
integrating these two subareas of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This
book contains a set of edited papers addressing computational models
and systems for the integration of NLP and VP. The papers focus on
site descriptions such as that of the large Japanese $500 million Real
World Computing (RWC) project, on historical philosophical issues, on
systems which have been built and which integrate the processing of
visual scenes together with language about them, and on spatial
relations which appear to be the key to integration. The USA, Japan
and the EU are well-reflected showing up the fact that integration is
a truly international issue. There is no doubt that all of this will
be necessary for the SuperInformationHighways of the future.

======================================================================
Paul Mc Kevitt is 32 and from D/un Na nGall (Donegal), Ireland on the
Northwest of the EU. He is a Visiting Professor of Intelligent
Multimedia Computing at Aalborg University in Denmark, EU and a
British EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council)
Advanced Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Sheffield in Sheffield, England, EU. The Fellowship,
commenced in 1994, and releases him from his tenured Lecturership
(Associate Professorship) for 5 years to conduct full-time research on
the integration of natural language, speech and vision processing. He
is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Education at the University
of Sheffield. He completed his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the
University of Exeter, England in 1991. His Master's Degree in Computer
Science was obtained from New Mexico State University, New Mexico, USA
in 1988 and his Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from University
College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, EU in 1985. His primary research
interests are in Natural Language Processing including the processing
of pragmatics, beliefs and intentions in dialogue. He is also
interested in Philosophy, Multimedia and the general area of
Artificial Intelligence.
