Is Syn truly AI learning

Is Syn truly AI learning? Will Syn learn from conversations?

SVA is a Virtual Assistant Platform for AI researchers/developers. Prototype 8.0 onwards sessions with the main user will be saved and loaded giving learning capabilities to the Assistant. The idea right now is to create a Platform for developers and users to create a customizable Virtual Assistant ( as we believe everyone has their own perception about Virtual Assistants ) rather than a feature complete software.

Can it recognize patterns? I watched a course of AI from MIT, and the professor showed a software that generated synopsys for a play. Like Hamlet. And the software would say what happens in the play, and also it will find patterns and make connections to "understand" things that are not explicit in the text. Like X killed Y, means Y is dead. Or X harmed Y, Y harms X, then pattern is revenge. And so on...

If something like this is not implemented, can it be implemented with the engine?

Can it add concepts on its own in dictionary?

Syn Engine comes under the domain of Natural Language Processing.

The concept you mentioned is not implemented but can be done easily. The objects X and Y ( if defined by a parser or any sensor ) can exist as computable data for the purpose of processing only. If an action called Killed is defined ( in Syn Engine it would be a function inside a SynGear) - then its easy to deduct that Y was killed by X.

Everything done in AI is mostly in Coding and Processing of information . And if it can be coded - it can be read - and if it can be read - its a textual/computable data.

A simple ( in its entirety ) example would be the command "open Google or Facebook". You will see that ( though not publicized ) Syn Engine makes a random choice between the 2 arbitrarily defined objects ( of class Web Site ) and launches Google or Facebook based on the internal ( not biased by the user ) decision. Another simple example that was processed successfully by the Engine was "add 2 and 4 and then subtract 3 from it" though I am unsure if some other patterns of similar formats would be processed correctly by the Engine. If you try the same with the Wolfram Engine. It Fails. But of-course Wolfram has a huge database and we don't.

And Hamlet ? No not yet "smile".

Finally, about adding things to dictionary. That part has been left to the developers as to how they choose to save the computational results.

I was talking about what happens in this course starting at about minute 45.
