Welcome to Lpkb!

Launched in February 1999 this project works to bring "common-sense" to computers. No small task! It is often easier to explain things which have formal definitions than the myriad exceptions and rules we take for granted in our everyday lives. The guiding 'philosophy' for the project is that 'robustness' is best served by using parallel representations or 'panalogies' rather than some elusive "best way" which seeks to cover all cases uniformly. AI has become a "hard sell" of late and lpkb is more in the spirit of exploration and art than "high performance" engineering; not that the project does not contain some "powerful ideas."
