NLU with Disambiguation


Here we show how context resolves the meaning of conversation and illustrate the impossibility to converse with today’s mainstream approaches. Scalability comes from an effective model.

Meaning Matching Without Parts of Speech


Today we demonstrate how an NLU differentiates between the word forms of ‘run’ based on meaning/definitions. This is currently known as an open scientific problem under the name Word-sense Disambiguation (WSD) and is central to real NLU.

Why grammatical elements are bad for parsing


The problem of parts of speech is explained as part of the wrap up for why parsing is a bad concept for NLU systems. Not only have experts said it is impossible for full human languages, but it creates ambiguity at many levels resulting in the unsolvable combinatorial explosion.

Why Semantics, Not Syntax, creates NLU


This is the first video in the series on NLU: why syntax alone is inadequate. We look at the underlying hypothesis and approach to syntactic structures and compare it to meaning-based systems.
