The Role of Artificial Intelligence in the Reconstruction of Man-made Objects from Aerial Images

Abstract

A number of different definitions of artificial intelligence is considered and their possible significance for the domain of reconstruction of man-made objects from aerial images is discussed. A useful property of AI is its inclination towards exploratory work which has helped to launch many new research areas. It is shown that contributions of AI can be found in various subdomains which are important for the field of man-made object reconstruction as a whole, namely perceptual organization, modeling and knowledge representation, control, handling of uncertainties, to name but the most important ones. As the field is far from mature at this very moment, AI can and will further contribute to its advancement.
