Language expressionis the process of translating mental representations into oral, written, graphic and gestured communication in an agreed upon mutual language that expresses the intent of the communicator. This process includes retrieving propositions that express intent, consolidating related propositions, translating propositions into a standard language form, applying grammar and style rules, and expressing the results.


Added definition of language expression to mind map site.

Harry is far more intelligent in this version. It feels like teaching a child. Continue the good work. BTW do you have any news on the issue of automatic knowledge acquisition for Harry?

An unexpected output is the following:

Giannis is Harry's master. Harry is not Giannis master
Is Harry giannis master?
yes harry is giannis master

Harry already thinks that he is my master... just image what will happen if he will grow up further!!!

yes, harry is not very experienced, in spite of his growing intelligence, but he can be surprising, just like a child.

A little more work to prepare harry to understand more complex sentences that he would encounter in automatic acquisition.

VHMATS has a new test for teaching habitual responses.

Harry has been taught to do this function in the following way:

Tom: When you hear hello you say howdy.
Harry: I will say howdy when someone says hello.
Tom: hello.
Harry: howdy.

this is convenient, but bypasses the interpretation step. this means that harry is not trying to understand, just respond.

Harry now works like a parrot. Perhaps you can add some boolean functions as well. For example:

when someone says hello or hi or aloha or howdy you say hi there!

Harry 1.0.3 supports your request. One is happy to be of service.
vhmats also updated to test this pattern.

created installers for Harry. one for empty DB (knowledge). one for updates that retains your knowledge base.

find the download file at the mindmap site.

Hi

What about tools for inputing knowledge to harry? Any news on that?

Harry 1.0.5 is available for download at the mindmap site.

I have built a temporary method for inputting using the clipboard. each sentence in the clipboard will be treated as a dialog entry. this is not the best way to enter bulk data, but it works. when the sentences exceed harry's abilities you can expect unusual results.

Speaking of "unusual results" Toborman, the publication New Scientist has a somewhat ironic account of a human who fails the "Turing Test"...a not altogether unsurprising result considering the "Dumbing Down" of the species You can read about it here: http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2009/03/human-fails-turing-test.html?DCMP=NLC-nletter&nsref=blog2

I'm not sure where this goes, but New Scientist has an intriguing article here: Rise of the robogeeks. I couldn't figure out how to insert it into VHNews.

Excellent article with a reference to HR, a math discovery program similar to Doug Lenat's AM and Eurisko, which lead to the development of Cyc.

The article suggests that math skills come from our understanding of spatial and temporal concepts. These concepts that are part of the human mind map have yet to be implemented in Harry. Perhaps the documentation of HR will help move this along.

Transformational Generative Grammar (TTG)

I am using an approach to natural language processing in Harry that has elements of TTG. Harry uses an underlying (deep) structure for reasoning. A NL rules file guides the interpretation of inputs and the generation of outputs.

Harry has a set of commands used to recall information from the knowledge (propositions) file. Harry uses the NL rules file to interpret questions as commands for recall. For example: “Is Tom a human?” is interpreted to “Verify Tom is a human.”

Consequently, I am faced with teaching Harry to interpret the basic question words (who, what, where, when, how, and why) into appropriate command forms. The problem lies in determining the intent of the speaker. For instance, “Why is Tom a human?” could be asking for justification of Harry’s belief, or asking for evidence to prove the statement is true.

I have decided to let Harry justify his belief in one of the following ways:
1) offer proof,
2) offer the source of the belief, or
3) acknowledge his lack of justification.

Therefore, “Why is Tom a human?” will be interpreted as “Prove Tom is a human.”, and “why?” will be interpreted as “prove [the last statement].”

Deep!

Harry 1.0.6 released. includes syllogistic reasoning for both verify and prove commands. answers questions using why.

vhmats updated with reasoning tests for these new features.
