Spatial Reasoning and
Reasoning with Images
``I want to leave the writing of this page behind.''
Even when talking about an abstract event in time,
space pops up in metaphors to show us how impor
tant it is for humans.
One of the reasons of the importance of space
is its epistemical multiplicity. Different senses, vi
sion and touch among others, give spatial inputs
to humans. In the early days of AI, vision was
believed to be one of the easiest subfields, but as
researches started to approach the problem system
atically they soon realized the variety of very com
plex problems involved in machine vision.
It is possible to think of spatial reasoning as the
field of studies on representations of space, infer
ences concerning space and interactions with space.
