Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Catherine Havasi, Robert Speer, James Pustejovsky, Henry Lieberman
Issue Date:July 2009
pp. 24-35
Understanding the world we live in requires access to a large amount of background knowledge: the commonsense knowledge that most people have and most computer systems don't. Many of the limitations of artificial intelligence today relate to the problem of...
Time and the Semantic Web
