Integration of Natural Language and Vision Processing (Volume III):
Theory and Grounding Representations
(The GREEN book)

ISBN-0-7923-3944-4

Price: $ US: 98.00

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 theoretical issues and
the grounding of representations in NLP and VP from Philosophical and
Psychological points of view. The papers focus on site descriptions
such as the reasoning work on space at Leeds, England, the systems
work of the ILS (Illinois, USA) and philosophical work on grounding at
Torino, Italy, on Schank's earlier work on pragmatics and meaning
incorporated into hypermedia teaching systems, Wilks' visions on
metaphor, on experimental data for how people fuse language and vision
and theories and computational models, mainly connectionist, for
tackling Searle's Chinese Room Problem and Harnad's Symbol Grounding
Problem. The Irish Room is introduced as a mechanism through which
integration solves the Chinese Room. The USA, China and the EU are
well-reflected showing 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.
