UNIVLEEDS Project Scope

UNIVLEEDS Organisation        UNIVLEEDS Key Personnel

Leeds’ role in the project focuses on WP5 (Advanced Ground Prediction System for TBM ) and WP10 (Expert System for Tunnel Maintenance Management). The Principal Investigator and Coinvestigator at Leeds are Prof Cohn and Dr Magee who have considerable expertise in technologies relevant to these areas including knowledge representation and reasoning and the development of expert systems, sensor interpretation and fusion – including non image data, image understanding, spatial reasoning. In their current Mapping the Underworld (MTU) project they are already working with GPR and sonar. They jointly won the UK BCS Prize in 2004 for greatest progress towards Machine Intelligence with their system which learnt behaviours from video observation. They will also employ new or existing Research Fellows to work on the tasks assigned to Leeds who have expertise specific to these tasks (they have employed two female RFs in previous MTU projects at Leeds).
