White Papers

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.


This white paper outlines two different types of “Artificial Intelligence” systems: machine reasoning and machine learning. We discuss the pros and cons of each and outline some of the situations in which each type of AI is more likely to be helpful.


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.
