The Public Acquisition of Commonsense Knowledge

Push Singh

The Open Mind Common Sense project is an attempt to construct a database of commonsense knowledge through the collaboration of a distributed community of thousands of non-expert netizens. We give an overview of the project, describe our knowledge acquisition and representation strategy of using natural language rather than formal logic, and demonstrate this strategy with a search engine application that employs simple commonsense reasoning to reformulate problem queries into more effective solution queries.
