Employment History

6/28/2002 to present Full time research with the intent to create a development system, to aid in the development of A Natural Language Processor. This research is using predicate calculus to simulate the process of learning how to communicate. The goal of this is the development of a human machine interface capable of programming a robot to preform complex tasks relative to rules and facts rather than the standard of programming a specific procedure. This will result in a robot operating system executive (Rose). Rose uses the English language as a declarative programming language. The programming of Rose is very much like communicating with a person. The input is facts and rules in the same way that it would be explained to a person. The learning process of how to program a machine in this way is to become familier with a more precise way of using our own language. More info available at http://roseandclem.com
