Natural Intelligence (NI) is a question answering system based on Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG) as the theory of grammar and Conceptual Graphs (CG) for knowledge representation and reasoning. CCG is a lexicalized theory of grammar and very suitable for semantic analysis. Conceptual Graphs is a special kind of semantic network which can express full first-order logic. It aims to address the problem of commonsense reasoning in question answering, by using the state of the art tools such as C&C tools, Cogitant and Open Cyc. C&C tools are used for parsing natural language, Cogitant is used for Conceptual Graph operations, and Open Cyc is used for upper ontology and commonsense handling.
