Description The experimental AI Dialog software application is able to build a mental model from a plain English dialogue using speech or textual input. Subsequently, comprehension and logical capability may be tested using plain English queries. AI Dialog is used to experimentally test the validity and utility of a novel software application design, as a path to Artificial General Intelligence, sometimes referred to as Strong Artificial Intelligence or Conversational Artificial Intelligence. The theory behind AI Dialog is fully described in the book: Belch, Francis R. (2023) Artificial General Intelligence – A New Approach, available from: (from September 2023). A short demonstration of the AI Dialog software application is available from YouTube®, and entitled: Artificial General Intelligence – A New Approach – AI Dialog Demonstration. There are also two YouTube® lectures each of about 1 hour duration describing the radical new approach to Artificial General Intelligence used to implement the AI Dialog software application. These are: Artificial General Intelligence – A New Approach – Part I Sentence Semantics. Artificial General Intelligence – A New Approach – Part II Dialogues and Mental Models. This is a free download of the executable of the AI Dialog Software Application Version 4.1 Alpha release. This version supersedes Version 3.2 to allow speech as well as textual user input. The AI Dialog software is protected by international copyright, but is made available to use for non-commercial personal study purposes. The application will run on Windows 10® PC, Laptop and Tablet systems, and requires about 1 M byte of memory. The download file is zipped and needs to be unzipped. After this, the content of the folder AI Dialog 4.1 Alpha Release is: • Application Files (Folder) • Documentation (Folder) • NLP2016Autumn (Manifest) • Setup (Application) In the Documentation folder are two PDF files: • Copy Of Tuition Lessons (PDF) • Specification (PDF). The first is a hard copy of the tuition lessons. The second is a specification of a subset of English for use with the AI Dialog system. However, there is no need to consult either of these initially, as AI Dialog incorporates a quick start tuition module. To install AI Dialog, double click the Setup file. This starts AI Dialog immediately after installation, but places an application icon on the Windows 10® Start list for restarting later. After AI Dialog starts, just follow the speech or pop-up message instructions, which lead to quick start interactive tuition modules, fully describing how to use the application.
