Title: "Automatic Linguistic Reports in Deforestation Analysis"
Monitoring and understanding the process of land deforestation requires to analyze vast volumes of data coming from different sources (i.e. satellite images, numerical data from environmental databases, etc.). Computational Theory of Perceptions (CTP) provides capabilities for linguistic summarization of data and it aims the description of patternsemerging from these data by means of linguistic expressions. This technique is particularly well suited in applications where there is the need of understanding the information at different levels of expertise and/or when intense human-computer interaction is required. In this second part of the talk, a CTP-based system able to generate useful multilingual deforestation summaries at different levels of granularity for deforestation analysis is presented.
