This Web page is a front end to a sophisticated expert system incorporating the latest breakthroughs in natural language and neural network research. The system is composed of about 11 million lines of C++ and Guile code, running on a "farm" of heterogeneous machines interconnected via a prototype 9.6 Gigabit ATM network developed by IntraLink Solutions. The underlying quadratic neural network has been training on Usenet, Web, and literature sources for over three years; on July 11, 1998, the neural matrix surpassed 32 Terabytes in size!
Although previous versions of the system showed promising results, they required excessive computational effort and produced poor solutions for many common cases. However, in 1994 Andrej Bauer made several theoretical breakthroughs in the synthesis of Lambek calculi and connectionist search algorithms. Implementing his ideas increased the performance of the system and the quality of the solutions by many orders of magnitude. He has written a brief treatment of the work, suitable for the lay person.
The Forum 2000 project is led by Darrell Kindred and Corey Kosak of Carnegie Mellon University. Funding for the project is provided by Intelleq, an industrial consortium consisting of IntraLink Solutions, Linguistic Technologies, and Quantor UK, Ltd.
