This API provides access to the Cyc Knowledge Base. OpenCyc is the open source version of the Cyc technology, a general knowledgebase and commonsense reasoning engine. OpenCyc includes the Cyc ontology, which contains hundreds of thousands of terms, plus millions of assertions relating the terms to each other, forming an upper ontology whose domain is all of human consensus reality. Using the API, a programmer can build an OpenCyc app with very little familiarity with CycL or with the OpenCyc KB. You might use the API to create apps that access the knowledge base for browsing, editing, or inference.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
