April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.

New Ideas ?

Specutaltive new are always interesting, and would probably start out as sketches for things which could be useful. Componentising certain sorts of things can be a very useful endevour since they can then be reused with all the other components. Kamaelia's architecture was itself once a speculative new idea - it's panned out really quite well, so where would like to see things go next ?

It's probably worth pulling out ideas from the GSOC pages into here.

Starter for 10: How could these be intergrated?

Inference engine integration & componentisation : http://pyclips.sourceforge.net/web/ - PyCLIPS is an extension module for the Python language that embeds full CLIPS functionality in Python applications. This means that you can provide Python with a strong, reliable, widely used and well documented inference engine.

Neural network systems integration : http://leenissen.dk/fann/ - Fast Artificial Neural Network Library is a free open source neural network library, which implements multilayer artificial neural networks in C with support for both fully connected and sparsely connected networks. (python bindings)

Common sense engine/systems : eg ConceptNet - ConceptNet is a freely available commonsense knowledgebase and natural-language-processing toolkit which supports many practical textual-reasoning tasks over real-world documents right out-of-the-box (without additional statistical training) including topic-jisting, affect-sensing, analogy-making, text summarization, contextual expansion, causal projection, cold document classification. (part of MIT's common sense project)

Axon 2.0

etc :)
