Cyc: toward programs with common sense

Douglas B. Lenat, R. V. Guha, Karen Pittman, Dexter Pratt, Mary Shepherd
1990 Communications of the ACM  
Several application programs making use of Cyc are currently under development. © COPYRIGHT Association for Computing Machinery 1990 CYC: TOWARD PROGRAMS WITH COMMON SENSE Motivation: The Brittleness Bottleneck  ...  This article begins with a discussion of the nature of that bottleneck, and then describes the Cyc project: a serious attempt, begun in late 1984, to overcome this limitation.  ...  The trouble with having standard expert systems do this task is they tend to ask too many questions, questions which can often be answered by common sense, questions for which Cyc is able to guess answers  ...

CYC: a large-scale investment in knowledge infrastructure

Douglas B. Lenat
1995 Communications of the ACM  
CYC technology can examine the retrieved data, recognizing inconsistencies, contradictions with specific data from other sources, and violations of common sense.  ...  only context and common sense-or preconceived tinkering-will reveal whether the question involved today's particular airplane (just diverted to O'Hare) or the scheduled daily route for planes with this  ...

2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A system that rests on a large, general-purpose knowledge base can potentially manage tasks that require world knowledge, or "common sense" -the knowledge that every person assumes his neighbors also possess  ...  Program: Are there more spots on the trunk than elsewhere? User: No. Program: The patient has measles.  ...  The Evolution of Cyc Beginnings of the Cyc Project Acknowledgements Research as wide-ranging and ambitious as the Cyc Project and the many components described in this paper would not be possible without  ...

, and direct oppression of the young people with whom we engage.  ...  As we enter the second decade of the 21 st century, the question of what we do and why we do it as CYC workers cannot be ethically separated from the lived suffering, social and cultural marginalization  ...  To counter such a logic, Pignarre and Stengers (2011) suggest that we need to develop a counter-sorcery, an alternative common sense, if you will.  ...

Building large knowledge-based systems: Representation and inference in the cyc project

John F. Sowa
1993 Artificial Intelligence  
I agree with his complaints about the confusing organization of the book and the lack of precise definitions. Despite our reservations, we both used  ...  A review of that book must distinguish four different things: the book itself, the Cyc project as it was when the book was written, the Cyc project today, and the developments that the designers are planning  ...  Lenat claims that common sense might also be useful as a supplement to an expert's deeper knowledge.  ...

CYC: Using Common Sense Knowledge to Overcome Brittleness and Knowledge Acquisition Bottlenecks

Douglas B. Lenat, Mayank Prakash, Mary Shepherd
1986 The AI Magazine  
Attractive, elegant answers have included machine learning, automatic programming, and natural language understanding. But decades of work on such systems (  ...  Assumptzon: Once built, the CYC system could form a common language or foundation upon (within) which future AI programs could be written.  ...  The difference in the two dialogues-without CYC and with it -is that CYC doesn't let the expert get away with ambiguity and jargon, or with new terms it doesn't understand.  ...

2010 The AI Magazine  
But, surprisingly often, after applying various constraints (medical domain knowledge, common sense, discourse pragmatics, syntax), there is only one single way to fit those fragments together, one semantically  ...  The query may be long and complex, hence only partially understood at first, parsed into a set of CycL (higher-order logic) fragments with open variables.  ...  Common sense, discourse pragmatics, context, medical knowledge, syntax, and so on, all come into play.  ...

Evaluation with 22 human subjects shows high precision both for the new concepts' categorization, and their assignment as individuals or collections.  ...  We suggest that the long-running Cyc project is able to assist here. We describe methods used to add 35K new concepts mined from Wikipedia to collections in ResearchCyc entirely automatically.  ...  Nicola Starkey, Associate Professor Bernhard Pfahringer, the University of Waikato Summer Research Scholarship Program, and all the human volunteers who took part in the evaluation.  ...
