Michael O. Vertolli is a PhD student in the Institute of Cognitive Science at Carleton University. His research focuses on data-driven procedural generation with cognitive constraints. In particular, his work aims to model how humans use structured information about the world to select and place objects when imagining a 3D scene.
This is an instantiation of a larger project that focuses on the integration of symbolic and sub-symbolic computational architectures, particularly in neural networks. The resulting formalism and associated theoretical and computational neuroscience are both active areas of his research.
