BRAINHAT INTRODUCES NATURAL
LANGUAGE OPERATING SYSTEM
English-Programmed OS Uses
Natural Language To Dispatch Tasks,
Answer Users’ Questions, and Drive Robots and Other Processes
HARTFORD, CT (July 7, 2001) — Brainhat Corporation today
announced a natural language operating system that can be
programmed in English, serve as a clearinghouse for English-based
events, intelligently interact with users in automated
question-and-answer environments, and direct the operations of
robots and other processes through English-based commands.
The Brainhat OS is now available in beta form, with
interfaces for English, VoiceXML and external processes.
Significant enhancements are scheduled to be released later
operating system addresses the need for knowledge-based
“conscious computing” that can replicate human thought more
closely than traditional sequential programming. Programming with the Brainhat system involves creating a
vocabulary for the desired application, building scenarios to
facilitate reasoning, and other activities designed to establish a
knowledge base that can be used to perform functions ranging from
launching tasks to evaluating ideas.
The new OS can
improve the ability of automated personal assistants, kiosks,
switchboards, help desks and other applications to respond to user
inquiries by equipping those systems with the power to understand
and reason in English. It
can also simplify programming for computer and robotic tasks by
permitting software engineers and robotic technicians to express
commands in natural language rather than algorithms.
In addition, it can enable like systems and machines to
communicate among themselves in English.
Raising the Bar in Artificial
attendants and other forms of computer-based interaction are
common today, but until now every automated system had to follow a
script,” said Brainhat President Kevin Dowd, developer of the
operating system and author of High Performance Computing and
Getting Connected: The Internet at 56K and Up.
“With the ability to observe, reason and draw
conclusions, the Brainhat OS is an important advance in
knowledge-based processing that will enable users to have a
conversation with automated systems on a human level.”
Intelligent email or instant messaging agents capable of
handling text queries such as “Did a package come for me?”
Automated call attendants that can answer questions such as
“Is Joe Jones there?” or
“Can you give me your fax number?”
Interactive auditory guides for museum exhibitions that
allow visitors to ask questions such as “Why is the statue’s
head missing?” or “Why did Van Gogh cut off his ear?”
Command processing for industrial robots, including the
ability to send multiple messages asynchronously without
Interfaces permitting two phone systems to schedule a
meeting or perform other functions without human intervention.
supports Linux and Windows 98/NT/2000.
It comes with a SAPI Version 5 speech recognition/speech
generation client that works with select SAPI-compliant speech
engines, including Dragon and Via Voice. It also supports Voice XML, a standard that extends HTML to
permit online voice interaction, and includes an API that supports
extensions permitting interaction with robots and other external
version of the Brainhat operating system is now available for
download at www.brainhat.com.
Brainhat Corporation will provide co-development services
on a contract basis to help beta users produce the knowledge,
vocabulary, grammar and interfaces for their application.
Corporation is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge-based,
natural language computing that allows humans and machines to
interact in a more natural manner.
Its Brainhat operating system provides the first platform
to bring natural language programming and a natural language
interface to commercial markets.
The privately held company is located in East Hartford,
Connecticut. For more
