The purpose of this note is to alert you
to the existence of a valuable (IMHO) tool.
If you find it useful, I get no monetary profit
-- I get only my pride of accomplishment.
my Knowledge Representation language (mKR)
is a "Real Intelligence" language -- its
purpose is to help humans "work smarter".
mKR is composed of Ayn Rand's epistemology
+ actions/methods + modern computer languages
+ English-like syntax.
mKR is a very terse language -- which helps you
focus on essentials. Here is a sample "program"
which displays one concept subhierarchy
(that's 1 of 1911 total concepts)
from the OpenCyc Upper Ontology.
Person isc* ?;
"isc" is the verb which relates a concept to its
units and species; "*" means iterate; "?" means
the concepts which make this "statement" true.
In other words, search the knowledge base for
answers to this "question".
my Knowledge Explorer (mKE) implements mKR.
mKE "knows" the standard languages used on the
"Semantic Web" -- RDF, OWL, CycL -- and provides
an mKR interface to several knowledge bases.
One example is the OpenCyc knowledge base --
an ambitious Cycorp project which combines
"common-sense" reasoning with the vast knowledge
available on the internet. OpenCyc uses approx.
7000 contexts to support its reasoning process.
OpenCyc has some epistemological problems,
which I was able to identify using mKR/mKE.
I share everything I know; see
for 10+ years of my notes on mKR/mKE, plus
conceptual hierarchies from the OpenCyc knowledge base,
the Stanford TAP knowledge base, and the Google
mKE do enhance od "Real Intelligence" done;
