Human Behavior & Actions


Kbase Thing

Human Activities are activities performed either by individual persons or by groups of people (such as organizations). Cyc contains thousands of concepts from this very broad collection. Examples include: dancing (and 24 subcategories, such as Irish step dancing), plowing a field, fly fishing (and several other kinds of fishing and hundreds of other leisure activities), speaking, sneezing (along with about 20 other involuntary bodily actions), meeting someone (along with thousands of other social occurrences), etc. Each of these concepts is deeply connected into the overall lattice of concepts, and each is used in facts and rules that contribute to Cyc’s ability to reason about our world.
