Natural Language Interface

A natural language interface allows interaction using natural spoken, or typed language. This can cause problems with ambiguity - natural language can often be interpreted so many different ways that the computer may do something completely different to what the user expected. This could prove disastrous.

Additionally, to fully understand natural language, the computer must house an intelligence capable of reason and operation at at least the level of a biological mind. Something this complex is still not within the grasp of our technology.

Natural Language Processing For Multi-User Virtual Worlds
This expansive, and well-written article takes a look at how to implement a more natural language system, to enable the parsing of more complex commands in text-based virtual worlds. Contains code, orientated towards MOO/MUSH developers.

Large Image Display: Chrysalis: Natural User Interface in Surveilance
Part two of a short series looking at the French film Chrysalis (2007)'s take on Natural User Interfaces. This focusses on a slightly more advanced form of touchscreen display; dealing with video data in such a way as to feel totally natural, even to a non-computer-user.

You Play my Language?
An exotic stranger smiles at you. You approach with a coy ease, looking up and down at the gorgeous visuals this person is putting on, intrigued by the prospect of an intense interaction. You say hi, casually introduce yourself, maybe tell a joke, but there is a problem: This person does not speak your language. Designing round language problems in virtual worlds.

Large Image Display: Chrysalis: Natural User Interface in Paperwork
A look at the tabletop interface system, a form of NUI that has long been sought after, but as the French film Chrysalis imagines it. A form which strongly resembles current efforts, but has the added benefit of being just a few years ahead of us, and is willing to show the capabilities off.

Building Blocks: Names
A bit of a hybrid between a coding resource and a building resource, this looks at parsers, and the difficulty in getting natural language interaction between rooms, objects, and players.
