I have discovered what natural intelligence is

I am developing the world's most advanced reasoning system, based on logic that scientists haven't described yet. It is also the world's only multilingual reasoning system, because scientists don't know how people learn a language.

So, I am two steps ahead of scientists in regard to automated reasoning:
1) I have discovered logical structures – or reasoning constructions – that are naturally embedded in language. In other words: I discovered that natural language is a source of natural intelligence. By implementing this Logic of Language in software, Thinknowlogy is the world's most advanced reasoning system;
2) I also discovered that logic is (almost) language-independent. By configuring the logic of my software for multiple languages, Thinknowlogy is the world's only multilingual reasoning system. Without these natural reasoning constructions, it is impossible to develop a multilingual reasoning system in a generic way.

Thinknowlogy is able to reason autonomously in readable sentences with a limited grammar. No knowledge is programmed upfront and it has no human-written output sentences, except for system messages. It doesn't even have extensive words lists. Only some basic words are defined. By applying the natural intelligence of language, it is able to reason autonomously in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Dutch and Chinese. Thinknowlogy implements reasoning constructions that are not yet described by scientists. Therefore, it has results that scientists cannot deliver, under the same preconditions. Of course, this reasoner is available – free of charge – as open source software.

First, the basics of natural language:

It is well known that grammar provides structure to sentences. But language also has a logical structure, which gives sentences their meaning. Lacking this crucial knowledge, scientists are unable to use the logic of language. Instead, they degrade rich and meaningful sentences to “bags of keywords”. Due to this degradation process, crucial meaning gets lost, by which computers are unable to process the deeper meaning of the human language.

I started a new science: natural intelligence

In order to use the logical structure of language, a fundamental approach is required. It means that a solid foundation must be built first, based on laws of nature. This process takes a lot of time and effort, by which it will take decades before my fundamental approach is applicable to everyday life.

I am using fundamental science instead of cognitive science:

• Language is a natural phenomenon;
• Natural phenomena obey laws of nature;
• Laws of nature are investigated using fundamental science / basic research.

Using fundamental science, I gained knowledge and experience that no one else has

Because of my fundamental approach, I have identified language as a natural source of intelligence. And because of my fundamental approach, I am the only one in the world who has defined intelligence as a set of natural laws. As such, my automated reasoner has results that scientists cannot deliver. So, I defy anyone to beat the simplest results of my reasoner in a generic way: from Controlled Natural Language, through algorithms, back to Controlled Natural Language, in multiple languages, without programmed knowledge, without human-written output sentences, and without the use of extensive words lists.

The Laws of Intelligence that are naturally embedded in Language are demonstrated by:

Programming in natural language;
Reasoning in natural language:
      • drawing conclusions (more advanced than scientific solutions),
      • making assumptions (with self-adjusting level of uncertainty),
      • asking questions (about gaps in the knowledge),
      • detecting confirmations, conflicts and some cases of semantic ambiguity,
      • displaying justification reports for the self-generated knowledge;
Multilingualism, proving: Natural languages have one common origin.

The invalidation of the theory of evolution as the explanation for the origin of intelligence, language and laws of nature:

• Despite exhaustive research, the theory of evolution still hasn't provided a satisfactory explanation for the origin of intelligence, language and laws of nature. Let alone, how they are related. Moreover, none of the phenomena that are exclusive to the theory of evolution – or its derivative theories – is applicable to daily life;
• According to the biblical world view, God has created laws of nature – including laws of intelligence – to make his creation run like clockwork. Being based on Laws of Intelligence that are naturally embedded in Language, only Thinknowlogy implements the intelligent function of words like definite article “the”, conjunction “or”, possessive verb “has/have” and past tense verbs “was/were” and “had”. Other Controlled Natural Language (CNL) reasoners are limited to sentences with verb “is/are” in the present tense. They don't accept the words mentioned above.

Thinknowlogy 2020

will be published in November 2020. It will contain part 6 of an internal redesign. See my planning for the other planned publications. Follow this project on Twitter, subscribe to project updates on GitHub or SourceForge, or receive an email when a new version is available.

God has created laws of nature to make his creation run like clockwork. It includes: Laws of Intelligence that are naturally embedded in Language. Thinknowlogy implements these natural laws of intelligence in software.
