Comment1 George Spilkov, May 28, 2011 at 2:12 p.m.:

It would be very interesting if someone would take this lecture and translate it into CYCL. The lecturer makes plenty of assertions and gives rules how to approach situations related to reasoning. Surely CYC could benefit from "knowing" all these things.

Assertion by assertion, word by word ... translate it all.

How would that change the abilities of CYC, if at all?
I personally feel scepticism on this one and assert that having the knowledge of the lecture would not make CYC any "smarter" in its abilities to reason and acquire knowledge? I hope though my feeling to be wrong.

(Note: I would do it myself regardless of the outcome if someone would take care for my bills. :) )
