Cyc Technology Overview

This white paper provides an in-depth look at the machinery that makes Cyc work — the knowledge base, the inference engines, and the tools that allow users to interface with these components.

Bayesian Networks Are Not The Solution To Open Machine Learning’s Black Box

In this white paper, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Bayesian networks and assess how they compare to Cyc. We conclude that Bayesian networks are useful for limited models, but Cyc is a much more transparent solution for ML’s black box problem.
