One way to make technology easier to use is to incorporate the
use of natural language.
Brainhat Inc. last week unveiled its namesake Voice XML/Web
Server, which officials with the East Hartford, Conn., company said
interprets natural language requests and provides dynamic delivery
of content. The server is built on the Brainhat operating system,
which is a natural language operating system that can be programmed
The server programming starts with a collection of Web pages and
a description in English of how these pages relate to one another.
Through a dialogue with the user, the server presents various pages
as the conversation proceeds. A user looking for a car can scan
numerous sites offering cars, or—through a natural language
dialogue—the server can try to refine a user's need through
questions such as "What kind of car do you want?"
The server is available for download now at www.brainhat.com,
with pricing starting at $11,995.
