Hi all,

I'm just impressed by the content... Just amazing. I just wonder if someone have heard if some there is some utilisation of the Wikipedia(text articles) as an "common sens" package brick for IA projects? Just curious...

Frano, do you mean as "raw knowledge" for AI projects? I'd have thought that such inputs would have to be expressed in a significantly more formal language that wikipedia uses, which is really only a bit more structured than HTML. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 16:22, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Actually, somebody else has suggested this, although it's not clear exactly how it could be done - see meta:Wikipedia Virtual Mind - IMSoP 16:52, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Seems to me that you would need an AI System that was able to understand the english language to be able to use this information as raw knowledge. The problem is to build a system that understands the english language, it needs to have quite a bit of raw knowledge already. Nroose 05:57, 10 Apr 2004 (UTC)
