11. An Approach to Ontology-Based Intention Recognition Using State Representations
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/7/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we present initial thoughts on an approach to ontology/logic-based intention recognition based on the recognition, representation, and ordering of states. This is different than traditional approaches to intention recognition, which us ...
