Ernest ,
How good is Jess for associating sentences in the English Language ?
I'm planning a blog which I hope will be written to randomly by
English-speakers.(Unfortunately, I am not fluent in any other language)
Can I use Jess to trundle through the blog and come up with meaningful associations which can be linked in wiki form? Obviously anything it can't make sense of will be manually gone through (or more likely ignored).
What a great way to teach a language.
(Unfortunately I am not sure how many rules there are in the English language , so this may be beyond my abilities. But with the help of an digital English Dictionary ....)
regards

Natural language understanding is a Hard Problem. There are certainly techniques for extracting meaning, but they're non-trivial, and in a case like this where the topics and language will be far-ranging, they're not very effective. Although Jess can definitely play a role in such a system, I just don't want you to get your hopes up about how much this software will be able to accomplish.
Now if you are successful, you'll be able to make some real money...

Thanks Ernest.
I guess it is an ambitious idea.
