[ba-ohs-talk] Fwd: CG: OpenCyc has been released

>From: "John F. Sowa" <sowa@bestweb.net>
>The long-awaited OpenCyc knowledge base, ontology, and software
>have now been released.  Following is the web site:
>    http://www.opencyc.org/
>The complete system is available as free, open source code,
>which takes 40 megabytes of storage.  This is verion 0.6b,
>which indicates that there is a lot more to come before they
>get up to version 1.0.
>This is a major project, which will undoubtedly have an impact
>on most other projects, including those that use conceptual graphs.
>On the whole, it should have a positive effect, since the CycL
>language can be generated fairly easily from CGs.
>The Cyc developers consider Cyc to be the ultimate be-all and end-all
>of everything, but I think that it is better to consider it as a free
>source of modules that can be considered and adopted when and if they
>seem to be useful for other projects.
