While working on iTalk, our expert system for online self-service support, an idea emerged from our development team:
This could be bigger than we first imagined. Why not build a universally accessible expert system that is created, educated, maintained, and utilized by the global community?
Without a lot of hesitation, we decided to do it.
The concept, in broad terms, is:
- Build a simple 'google-like' web portal where users can engage Weegy in problem-solving conversation.
- Recruit 'Weegy experts' in a variety of specific knowledge categories. (e.g. automobile repair, financial advice, health and fitness, and countless others categories).
- When Weegy cannot continue a conversation (as will often happen when Weegy is young and impressionable), she will immediately contact the first available expert to help her continue the conversation.
- All conversation threads become a part of Weegy's knowledge and understanding of the world, and help her to become smarter. She will learn by listening to users and Weegy experts talk with each other; no other special setup or maintenance is required to build Weegy's intelligence.
