Knowledge Agents

Knowledge agents are programs that manipulate hypergraphs in some way. They can be introspective, working only on the current contents of the hypergraph to derive new knowledge. For example, the taxonomy agent infers simple taxonomies from concepts. It can infer that ‘black cat’ is a type of ‘cat’ or that ‘city of Berlin’ is a type of ‘city’.

It produces new hyperedges such as:

(type_of/p/. city/c (of/b city/c berlin/c))

Certain agents use outside sources to introduce knowledge into hypergraphs. For example, the txt_parser agent receives as input a simple text file and converters each sentence that it detects in it into an hyperedge.
