Hey all,
I found something that might help us all with Wintermute, it's called
DISCERN and here is a short description:
"DISCERN is a large, modular neural network system for reading,
paraphrasing and answering questions about stereotypical (script-based)
stories. A precis of this book and a short summary paper should give you
a quick overview of this research. To get an idea what the DISCERN
programs are like (without having to first port them), take a look at
the on-line demo. It runs remotely on cascais.cs.utexas.edu, with
graphics display on your X11 screen. The DISCERN software consists of
four components: 1. PROC for training and testing the
backpropagation-based processing modules (for parsing, generation, and
question answering), 2. HFM for training and testing the hierarchical
feature maps that form the basis for the episodic memory, 3. DISLEX for
training and testing the lexicon (lexical and semantic feature maps and
associative connections between them), and 4. DISCERN, which is the
integrated complete story processing model put together from the final
results of the above three programs. Comments to discern@xxxxxxxxxxxxx."

Here is a link to it (There is code which might help our developers and
the psych team will definitely benefit from reading about this)
