We are mainly interested in the development of CAD systems for interior design. An effective use of such systems relies to a large extent on the characteristics of their user interface. This paper describes NALIG, a system able to “understand” and “reason about” high level descriptions of spatial scenes. The user interacts with the system by using a natural language interface which, though very simple, is expressive enough to allow the description of complex configurations of objects. NALIG replies by drawing on the screen an image mirroring its own “understanding” of the scene described. The comprehension process has required the integration of different AI-techniques (e.g., natural language understanding, spatial reasoning, default and common sense reasoning)
