alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.
Howie is an artificial intelligence agent with a natural language interface (a "chatterbot"). It is designed to be simple to install, configure, and extend. The emphasis is less on simulating a human conversation, and more on providing a "virtual assistant" which provides useful services to visitors through a natural, conversational interface.
LinkGrammar-WN is a lexicon expansion for the Link Grammar Parser. The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of the English language that is capable of handling a wide variety of syntactic constructions and is considered quite robust. The LinkGrammar-WN project aims to import lexical information from WordNet in an effort to increase the size of the LGP lexicon. This project is of interest to anyone interested in NLP (natural language parsing) of English text.
The purpose of Mind AI is to build an artificial mind based on some advanced concepts: machine learning, representation and meta representation of concepts, concept reflection, reification (concept to meta concept), and denotation (meta concept to concept), and to explore some new concepts. Interaction with the AI is done via IRC.
pyECTOR is a chatterbot which learns from what people say. It is based on an artificial intelligence architecture that is inspired by Copycat, an AI system from Mitchell and Hofstadter. The Concept Network it uses is a mix between neural and semantic networks. It uses co-occurrences to compute the influence of one semantic node on another. The links are statistically weighted.
Cypher is an AI program that generates the RDF graph and SPARQL query representations of plain language input, allowing users to speak plain language to update and query databases. With robust definition languages, Cypher's grammar and lexicon can quickly and easily be extended to process highly complex sentences and phrases of any natural language, and can cover any vocabulary. Equipped with Cypher, programmers can begin building next generation semantic Web applications that harness natural language.
