Sanskrit and Artificial Intelligence

Knowledge Representation in Sanskrit and Artificial Intelligence
by Rick Briggs, Roacs, NASA Ames Research Center
(published in AI Magazine, Volume 6, Number 1, Spring 1985)

There have been suggestions to use Sanskrit as a metalanguage for knowledge representation in e.g. machine translation, and other areas of natural language processing because of its highly regular structure (The AI Magazine, Spring, 1985 #39). This is due to Classical Sanskrit being a regularized, prescriptivist form abstracted from the much more irregular and richer Vedic Sanskrit. This levelling of the grammar of Classical Sanskrit occurred during the Brahmana phase, after the language had fallen out of popular use, arguably qualifying Classical Sanskrit as an early engineered language.

Using The Web For Linguistic Research


Slashdot ว่าไว้:

prostoalex writes “The Economist says linguists are gradually adopting the World Wide Web as a useful corpus for linguistic research. Google is used, among other resources, to research how the written language evolves and how some non-standard examples of usage become more or less acceptable (The Economist quotes the phrase ‘He far from succeeded,’ where ‘far from’ is used as an adverb). LanguageLog is a resource linked in the article, where linguists discuss current peculiarities of the English language.” read more
