Common Sense

True Intelligent systems exhibit common sense -- they possess more than enough knowledge to be able to work in a given environment.

We have already mentioned the CYC system which is an ambitious attempt to code up common sense. However as this example illustrates you require a very large knowledge base for this type of system.

Common sense systems need to support:

Common sense strategies illustrate many important AI topics. We will study how this can be implemented drawing on many of the topics we have studied previously.
