    Well, folks, I just spent a lot of time roaming
    I have the following comments:

    Great job? Maybe. Glitzy and expensive? Yup.
    Visit for a contrasting chatterbot,
    ALICE. Both programs seem to have about the same level of comprehension
    (whatever that means in a template-based ELIZA-like "natural language" bot).
    ALICE can pass your query off to a web search engine, RAMONA suggests you go
    see one yourself. RAMONA appears to be integrated with WebBrain, ALICE is
    not there yet.

    Enough of the syntax. Now, the semantics. Kurzweilai offers a forum. Ok,
    this is not positive, but it's not negative either: not too much of a
    genepool involved in that forum, and the quality of discussion is not all
    that profound either. But, it's rather new. I would like to think that
    Kurzweil would attract some profound thinking, and that he would participate
    as well.

    As an instance of a nicely-linked topic map, WebBrain is a great
    demonstration of the power of that technology. Certainly, any OHS should
    include something like that. Always keep in mind that the makers of
    WebBrain succeeded in securing a patent that makes doing anything like it a
    breach of their IPR.

    My 0.01 Euros for today.
