Learning Prolog!
« on: March 06, 2021, 08:27:36 pm »
Ooow, Prolog... scary name to me. But not anymore: I'm currently learning ISO Prolog as part of my project Jamie. It's worth spending time on it, elegant, powerful, I'm having a pleasant journey.

edit:
The book is "Programming in Prolog using the ISO standard, 5th edition", by W.F. Clocksin & C.S. Mellish (Springer). I'm on Android with SWI-Prolog on Termux.
If anyone is interested in reading the book together and learning/talking/helping each other, please let me know!

Hi Zero,

Prolog is certainly an amazing language. I've dabbled in it occasionally but never really tried to get serious with it. A couple of years ago I started working through the book "Representation and Inference for Natural Language" by Blackburn and Bos. That book lays the foundations for Combinatorial Categorial Grammar (CCG) which is currently the leading edge for natural language understanding using symbolic methods. The book is one big Prolog lesson because it presents everything in Prolog rather than mathematical abstractions making it a very interesting and easy read. It is readily available as a downloadable PDF if you would like to read it yourself.
