[REBOL] Demo of Rebol powered "Knowledge Bot"

From: tbrownell::shaw::ca at: 18-Feb-2002 15:31

Hello again. Well, after much needed sleep and piece of mind, I'm back at it :) As you may or may not know, I've built a rebol powered "Knowlege Bot" that can read and more importantly, comprehend, at least in a fuzzy logic kind 'o way. As an experiment, I told our Rebol driven bot, LFReD, to read just the Introduction paragraph of "A Quick Introduction to Rebol Scripting" document on the rebol site. A feat requiring about 100 ms. With no human intervention, (other than teaching LFReD what "Rebol" is and changing a corresponding pronoun "we"), it's now able to answer any questions relating to that brief introduction. But not only the obvious boolean related ones, but more obscure queries such as... What relationship does Rebol have with Toto? (My personal favorite :) Can Rebol deal with my spam? What relationship does Rebol have with Netscape Navigator? Is Rebol easy? How does Rebol HQ appear? Is Rebol a large company? Can Rebol handle client issues? What if I've been putting Rebol off? Where can i find more Rebol references?" Try it for yourself, just enter your question in the text box on the top of our homepage It even pops up the page whenever anyone makes reference to the last paragraph eg: "rebol tutorial". Imagine if LFReD was to crawl the whole site. Of course this is possible, but would require teaching it things like datatypes, IOS, etc. Perhaps one day :) T Brownell
