Research topic in the laboratory COGIT :

Model of knowledge review in a geographic data generalisation process based on agents.

The objective is to propose a model of procedural knowledge review included in a generalisation system. As a consequence, it deals with implementing introspection mechanisms, associated to automatic learning methods d’apprentissage to ease the system evolution.

PhD Thesis :

PhD in data processing defended in 2008 (Université Paris-Est):
Automatic knowledge revision helping state tree exploration. Application to geographic data generalisation
Supervised by Alexis Drogoul, co-supervision : Cécile Duchêne
