I'm trying to develop projects that contribute to society's space sector, and find partners to complete them.
But I need your help because for years I've not been afforded an opportunity to do so sustainably.
I've been seeking entry-level jobs, studentships, or funding options to work my project--or a related one by others. I've wanted my project to be a MS or PhD thesis, and have submitted a NASA grant proposal on my own, but so far there's been opportunity despite my publications and growing interest in the community.
Developing knowledge models to improve spaceflight safety by helping share space data and creating a common terminology. Example: the Orbital Debris Problem. These models--ontologies, and terminologies--are related to AI (Artificial Intelligence), the Semantic Web, and are part of so-called 'knowledge graphs'.
What Your Donation Will Do.
- A) help me finish writing papers, publish them in journals, and find co-authors/partners
- B) present them at conferences by funding travel and registration
- C) develop the computable models/terminologies
- D) further my education, and develop skills needed to work on the project
- E) Provide a monthly income to pursue one of the things I love
- To create useful, scientifically-accurate and computable classifications for objects in space, and spacecraft systems. These are to be integrated into an larger information system and visualization.[Poster]
- To create shareable space terminologies/taxonomies, ontologies, (and domain models) that different organizations can use. This will...
- Help databases share and integrate space situational awareness (SSA) data. This will make spaceflight safer by providing a more complete picture of the orbital space environment.
