I'm currently working on a program that'd be great for that... S.I.M.O.N.
is a program that will be a complex data storage and retreival system with
a natural language frontend. For example, say you told Simon:
John got on a purple bus to go the store so he could buy groceries.
and asked it questions, it would respond appropriately. I'm not even
close to having the data storage/retreival system functioning with a
command-driven if yet, I don't expect to have anything useable for years.
My goal is to have it work via e-mail and IRC, carrying on conversations
with people... TTYL!
