Home / Glossary / Query

“Query” has been used to mean a lot of different things with regard to Cyc. Depending on context, it could mean one of:

  • A CycL sentence intended to be asked, aka a query sentence.
  • A CycL sentence, Mt, and list of inference parameters that are passed to the Cyc Inference Engine via a SubL function like new-cyc-query.
  • A Cyc constant storing a CycL query sentence, Mt, and list of inference parameters. Such constants are instances of #$CycLQuerySpecification.
