This is a first attempt at a general cognition system. The input is first converted into Basic English of 1,000 semantically-tagged words and mapped on to a multivariate space in order to achieve spatial proximity as a function of semantic similarity. It is currently capable of 6 logic operations: equivalence, similarity, induction, deduction, abduction and metaphor. It is able to learn from free unstructured text and improve upon itself.
A chat bot is a humanlike conversational character.
Its conversational skills and other humanlike behaviour is simulated through artificial intelligence.
It often acts as a virtual assistant and it can have its own visualisation through an avatar
or it is faceless. We expect that through the years every conversational chat bot will grow into a real virtual human.
