Our object is computer program, that comprehends sense. Sense of the text, speech and behaviour.
The sense we are talking about is certainly not a short exposition of information contained in the text. If we communicated by transmitting each other some information, we’d be databases, not alive people. A man can make a mistake, give an inexact wording, can lie, forget the right word, after all he might be obliged to speak and write something he isn’t very much interested in at the moment.
So in most cases a person is speaking on the subject-matter, keeping his mind on… various others.
Even excellently trained authors – scientists, politicians – are unable to supress thoughts that are irrelevant to the message idea. And fairly often such thoughts burst through narration texture, destroying or interlacing with it.
The sense we are speaking about – not external or formal, but integral – is the the result of interaction or even a conflict. Between author’s chief task – and his inner unexpressed thoughts. Which, as we’ve already mentioned, may not pertain to the text message and even contradict it.
When we evolve, identify and link together senses of these two different currents of thought, we are able to see narrator’s true attitude of mind and understand what he really thinks on the subject-matter. Understand – not in formal, but in the human sense of the word.
The first step on that way is Lus.sense prototype, that analyses texts, extracts their open and hidden senses being able to find not only evident sense-centers, but also the displays of unsaid authors considerations. Now we’re working on the full beta version of this program.
