What roles knowledge bases play now and will play in the future?

First of all, I would like to point out the main differences between knowledge base and (Deep) machine learning, specially when the main focus is on "AI" not "Data Science": NNs are like a black box; ...

What roles knowledge bases play now and will play in the future?

Although asked over 3 years ago, the question is still interesting and while I agree with the original answer, a lot can be added to it. First, I'd like to point out that the term "knowledge base&...

Is anybody still researching GOFAI?

Sure! There's the whole Semantic Web scene! OWL is derived from DLs and Frames, arguably has a lot in common with semantic networks too. Expert-driven decision support systems are still being ...

Is anybody still researching GOFAI?

Oh yeah, definitely. Just to pick one example, you have Douglas Hofstader's group at Indiana. I think most of what they do would fall under the rubric of GOFAI (or at least closer to that than the ...

Is there a relationship between Computer Algebra and NLP?

There isn't, really. Natural language is way more complex and irregular than algebra, which is far more formalised and unambiguous. So far, in NLP, most success/progress has been made in little toy ...

Is there a relationship between Computer Algebra and NLP?

One of the ways to ask if this two problmes are related is to ask, could we solve math/algebra equations with NLP approaches, and the answer is yes, it's an absolutely valid idea and it was approached ...

Is there a relationship between Computer Algebra and NLP?

Yes there is a relationship, but it's not an exact one like I think is envisioned in the question. Fuzzy numbers and fuzzy logic translates natural language expressions into quantitative values and ...

Can rule induction be considered a way to "hybridize" probabilistic / statistical approaches and symbolic approaches?

Sure! This is a somewhat hot area right now. There are lots of ways to do it. Probably the main line of research is with Bayesian Networks (1980's) and Casual Networks (1990's). These are basically ...

Is there a relationship between Computer Algebra and NLP?

A lot of natural language processing software are (in 2021) using statistical approaches. Read The Deep Learning Revolution (by T.Sejnowski), Artificial Beings, the Conscience of a conscient machine (...

Recent work on “Oracular” systems such as Eliza?

Tariq's comment hints at this, but this is still in some sense a very mainstream idea. Check out the transcripts for this year's Loebner Prize. The winner (called Tutor) is again making use of Eliza-...

What roles knowledge bases play now and will play in the future?

It seems that Automated Knowledge Base Construction would be unfavorable. As Matt Gardner noted in NLP Highlights in 2019 that: Um, but I know that Google, for instance, canceled their knowledge base ...

In what ways can connectionist AI be integrated with GOFAI?

A neural net with even a single hidden layer is capable of Universal function approximation - it can approximate any continuous function 'as closely as you like'. Hence, one option would be to look ...
