Convergence Software | AI Program & Boolean Programming

By: Daniel Nase

An Artificial Intelligence program was written in November 2001 by Daniel Nase using Boolean that completely replicated the English language. The theory behind this program was "if man reasons primarily through language, then a computer with a complete understanding of language could reason and learn just like any human being". This program used a variety of Boolean Logic tests, reduced the English language into a simple Boolean format and used Goto instructions to carry out the program. One unique aspect of the program was its ability to reason and discard inaccurate information by performing logic tests and emailing a carefully selected group of teachers.

The program was referred to as "a developing child, the more you teach it, the more useful it becomes". The program's inventor believed that the mature application would require a mainframe or super computer to run due to the enormous amount of processing and storage space required in the future. He also said "it was literally designed to learn anything and operate any program that language or recorded actions could describe, but you had to tell it to take action and show it how to do it the first time". This new type of program could replace current operating systems due to increased functionality and interact verbally with end users via their cell phones. It could even provide consumers with a powerful software program that can quickly learn, adapt and combat malicious software; the mature program could also boost the productivity of software engineers by hundreds or even thousands of times depending on the amount of resources available.
