Original OSNews Interviews Artificial Intelligence has been at the center of any geek's dream for years. One of the projects that's closer to true AI is Cyc. The open source version of the commercial Cyc product is called OpenCyc and it reached v1.0 status last year. Their mission is to grow both the Cyc & OpenCyc ontology and knowledge base -- even if they are not directly affiliated with Cycorp (the original creators of the Cyc technology). The answers to our mini-interview are provided by project members Mark Baltzegarm, John De Oliveira and Brad Bouldin.

I had no idea that Cyc had an open source version. Pretty cool.

Wat was really interesting was that Cyc has been approached by people in the hope of making a natural language OS by layering Cyc on top of Linux. Sounds like a nice project but it seems that in all these situations what was laking was resources.

Shame really, I'd love to see a natural language Linux distro. IMO that would be the Linux desktop killer app allot of us have been waiting for.

Keep up the good work guys!
