Abstract:

The analysis of natural language input into its underlying semantic content is but one of the tasks necessary for a system human or non-human to use natural language. Responding to natural language input requires performing a number of tasks 1 deriving facts about the input and the situation in which it was spoken 2 attending to the systems needs, desires, and interests 3 choosing intentions to fulfill these interests 4 deriving and executing actions from these intentions. The authors describe a series of processes in a model of paranois which performs these tasks. The authors also describe the modifications made by the paranoid processes to the normal processes. A computer program has been constructed to test this theory.
