Project Title: Inductive Situation Evolution Modeling (inSiTUEVO)

Investigator: Dr. Andrea Salfinger

Institution: Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria

Duration: Oct. 2018 - Sept. 2021 (3 years)

Funding: Austrian Science Fund (FWF), Hertha-Firnberg Program

Type: single person project (post-doc career development program)

inSiTUEVO is a research project in the area of Cognitive Situation Management. Broadly speaking, Cognitive Situation Management involves the problem of how machines can not only perceive the individual elements of their observed environment, but understand the whole "big picture", i.e., encountered situations, by interrelating these individual perceptions. To do so, artifical agents require suitable situation models representing the event patterns of interest, against which they can compare their sensed observations.

inSiTUEVO aims at supporting the acquisition of these situation models, by developing novel Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining approaches to automatically induce symbolic situation evolution models from data.
