Aspects of a Natural Language Based Artificial Intelligence System Report Number Seven: Language and the Structure of Knowledge.
Borden, George A.
ARIS is an artificial intelligence system which uses the English language to learn, understand, and communicate. The system attempts to simulate the psychoneurological processes which enable man to communicate verbally. It uses a modified stratificational grammar model and is being programed in PL/1 (a programing language) for an IBM 360/67 computer. In its present state of development, ARIS uses a crude simulator of verbal communication similar to Weizenbaum's ELIZA program. From this base an attempt will be made to develop a concept network having human-like characteristics. The stratification model will be extended to the concept strata, using Piaget's developmental theories regarding the dynamic nature of knowledge. The two necessary characteristics for the structure of knowledge--hierarchical and dynamic relations-- will then be the natural consequences of the resulting network. (Author/JY)
