Knowledge Representation & Reasoning System is an intriguing tool
which could conceivably be used by Arti
(in an analogous manner to the way MySQL works for Rails).
That is, we could use PowerLoom as a server to store knowledge,
retrieve it in "intelligent" ways, etc.
However, although there are some tools
that allow Ruby to communicate with PowerLoom,
the interface is not very natural, from Ruby's perspective.
Specifically, the Ruby program is required to generate and interpret
PowerLoom's variant of
Knowledge Interchange Format
project web covers the RubyKif class,
which handles a small (but growing!) set
of KIF serialization (eg, parsing, generation) issues.
This page, which is currently just a placeholder,
will be used to discuss issues related to using RubyKif in Arti.
