    I was wondering if there is a KBMS which enables me to built research application that works with Infer.net as the inference engine of my KBMS

     

    Thank you for your time.

    Thanks. I guessed that was the case. The forum is a bit flaky sometimes, and holds posts up for moderation with no notification. I check the moderation area a couple of times a week. In general, if a post does not appear, just drop an e-mail to infersup@microsoft.com to let us know.

    Infer.NET is very different from a traditional rule-based expert system, and is not driven by a data base of handwritten rules. It is a statistical machine learning system in which you specify probabilistic models. Inference in these models refers to learning distributions over the parameters from  training data. I hope this answers your question - apologies if I have misinterpreted it.

    Thank you John for you time and help. You've answered my question.

    I would like to ask one more related question if you do not mind:

    I am doing research in AI. This is my first course, so i apologize if I am asking questions that might be nonsense. I what I want to know is weather infer.net would be useful in my course project or not. and how much it can help?

    Lets say I have huge number of data in form of bibliography  text.  I need to first to do  information extraction (IE), populate them in database or whatever then  classify these entries to say Group A  people and group B people. This classification is done manually at the moment, can infer.net become able to classify these records by learning from a given data set?

    My input is historical textual data and not in English language!

    Its up to me to do the project, but i need to know how useful the infer.net can be useful in this problem?

    Thank you again for your time reading my posts.
