Natural language programming of agents and robotic devices

Veres, Sandor M. (2008) Natural language programming of agents and robotic devices, London, UK, SysBrain, 181pp. (SysBrain Series on Intelligent Agents).

Record type: Book


The book provides examples of how conceptual structures can be built up for the purpose of developing shared understanding between man and machine. The medium of this shared understanding is a version of English that is carefully defined and tailored for a particular application. The name of this type of English is called system English, sEnglish for short. It is supported by conceptual structures defined to suit the application developed. The book outlines the principles and its use with electronic personal assistants and intelligent software agents. The focus is on sEnglish and no commitment is made to any particular intelligent physical agent architecture that is used to control a machine. The book provides a series of examples to show the possibilities of sEnglish as a high level programming language.
