To create an artifical intelligence, it must be able to communicate with something other than itself. The thing most likely that it will talk to is a human, so it needs to know the language of humans.
How do you learn English without having any prior knowledge?
Humans obviously have certain base facts set to certain values before. What are these?
How are these base facts related to the later English language?
How would I convert these facts into computer terms and then teach it English?
Can someone point me in the right direction to learning about these things?
