White Paper - Draft (Word document)

Current efforts to build the Semantic Web have been based on creating machine readable metadata, using XML tags and RDF triples to formally represent information. It is generally assumed that the only way to create an intelligent Web agent is to build a new Web, a Web specifically for machines, using a unified logical language. We are attempting to solve this disparity between humans and machines from the opposite direction, by enabling machines to understand and reason on natural language statements, and giving them knowledge of the world we live in.
Future Work
We are currently working on automatically selecting and querying Web Services based on a user's request.  More information will be posted in the future.
