New Article in New Scientist about Cyc
New Scientist just published a new article about Cyc in which they say, "Cycorp has also just launched a trivia game for the public that will help fill in gaps in Cyc's knowledge."
The Cyc Foundation is being entrusted with the responsibility for further development of the game. We're currently designing a new front-end for the game that will provide an arcade-like feel. We hope it will make game play more compelling. And we're planning to extend the kinds of knowledge that the game will gather.
This will be a new genre in gaming: Games that Matter, where every question you answer brings the world a little closer to a truly intelligent computer.
[By the way, a Cyc Foundation website is in the works and is expected next month. In the meantime, we may set up at least a home page in the next few days where we'll be able to collect a little information from those of you who would like to help with this effort.]
