I’m taking an advanced artificial intelligence course in graduate school
UCF and, among other things, I am studying expert systems including:
ConceptNet3, Wordnet, Yago, CYC, Dendral, Macsyma, and Mycin. The topic
my class this afternoon.
My questions must have been asked before but I am new to Ruby. I am
to try to use Ruby for my programming assignments. Ruby seems to be a
but capable language available across several platforms. My
first assignment I would like to accomplish is to use Ruby to access
the expert system, especially ConceptNet3, Wordnet, and CYC. In other
words, build a Ruby shell around the expert system.
I would like to learn how to interface with these systems. Do I have to
download them to my computer or do I use the internet to establish an
interface, such as Ruby on Rails? Is there any existing code that I
use as a template that is available on a web site somewhere? If not, a
reply with code on this forum would be helpful.
I currently have Ruby 1.8 in my Windows XP environment on a Dell
8200 laptop that I bought in 2002. My desktop crashed recently and I am
the process of replacing it. (Taught me an important lesson to use
for my emails and address.)
Much thanks in advance,
