Abstract:

Fusion of sensor and communication data currently can only be performed at a late processing stage after sensor and textual information are formulated as logical statements at appropriately high level of abstraction. Contrary to this it seems, the human mind integrates sensor and language signals seamlessly, before signals are understood, at preconceptual level. Learning of conceptual contents of the surrounding world depends on language and vice versa. This paper uses phenomenology of the human mind and sensing processes to achieve high-level sensor fusion. We describe a phenomenology-based inverse scattering PBIS mathematical technique for such integration. It combines PBIS based on dynamic logic with dual cognitive-language models. The paper briefly discusses relationships between the proposed mathematical technique, working of the mind and applications to understanding-based search engines.
