Previous Project

This project explores how commonsense reasoning can be used to browser large collections of text documents. Users select words in a document, triggering transitions to other documents that are related along dimensions such as context and analogy, eliminating the need for hand-crafted hyperlinks. The application has been implemented using the ConceptNet reasoning engine and is demonstrated on a collection of written fairy tales. A vision-based interface allows users to trigger transitions between different fairy tales by simply pointing at the words of interest with their finger as they read.
