Eurisko

Eurisko was a program developed by Lenat. It was an interesting program that learn from previous experience and could solve just about any problem you put before it. It worked with games, microchips, and a range of other feilds with very little coding done ot adapt it for the problem it was about to solve. This has given me an interest in just how this could be done, because the applications of a program like that today, with it power magnified by modern computer, are almost infinite.

Cyc: Lenat''s twenty year project. (and current one).
Before Eurisko: Am.

OpenCyc will be released in July.

Eurisko was based on LISP and took advantage of the fact that LISP''s code is LISP''s primary data structure: the list.

Cyc attempts to model common sense. It is a formidable project. Look into expert systems, predicate calculus, frame systems, resolution refutation, non-monotonic logic using true and true by default logic, truth maintenance, and axioms.
