Brainhat is a programming environment. The programming language is
simple English. Program statements are facts and inference templates.
Is Brainhat an AI?
No. Brainhat is not an artifical intelligence (AI) in the current sense of the term.
AIs are trained
discrimination networks. Training produces a set of weights that are
attached to the nodes of the network. When run-time data are
presented, the AI network identifies class membership or novelty as compared to
Brainhat's functionality is built upon data
structures that represent knowledge. They can be indexed, stored,
recalled and shared.
AIs can be incorporated into Brainhat to help
identify patterns within knowledge and to classify senseory input.
Why program with knowledge?
Knowledge can capture intent, cause-and-effect and path data for
problem resolution. Knowledge can be generalized. Observations
gleaned in one domain can be applied to another. A knowledge-based
system can be queried about its state.
What can Brainhat be used for?
Brainhat is for building domains of knowledge and belief systems.
It can be used to program robots, games and
Does Brainhat communicate in English?
Human language makes
knowledge portable. Brainhat parses English against a
context. It's ultimate meaning is understood against
a background of kowledge that came before.
Internal computations are performed with knowledge
representations. When it is time communicate with you
or the outside world, Brainhat translates knowledge back into
Brainhat's use of English is limited,
and primarily for programming and debug. Future versions of Brainhat
may combine AI and knowledge to produce more fluid speech.
How can I get a copy?
To be determined. Brainhat is pre-release. Documentation is in
progress. Testing and refinement continue. All major features for
the upcoming release are completed.
