Abstract:

Geospatial abduction problems GAPs involve the inference of a set of locations that best explain a given set of locations of observations. For example, the observations might include locations where a serial killer committed murders or where insurgents carried out Improvised Explosive Device IED attacks. In both these cases, we would like to infer a set of locations that explain the observations, e.g., the set of locations where the serial killer livesworks, and the set of locations where insurgents locate weapons caches. However, unlike all past work on abduction, there is a strong adversarial component to thisan adversary actively attempts to prevent us from discovering such locations.
