Abstract:

The knowledge needed to process natural language comes from many sources. While the knowledge itself may be broken up modularly, into knowledge of syntax, semantics, etc., the actual processing should be completely integrated. This form of processing is not easily amenable to the type of processing done by serial von Neumann computers. This work in progress is an investigation of the use of a highly parallel, spreading activation and lateral inhibition network as a mechanism for integrated natural language processing. Author
