Common Sense! Calling All Teachers - and those who just want to teach

Love to teach? Want to try teaching a computer? Then check out the Open Mind Common Sense Project. Here you can answer questions about normal, everyday things, or enter your own factoids and snippets of wisdom - and have the computer try and fit them into it's world view.

In their words:

Computers don't currently know the basic things about the world that we consider "common sense." Here, you can help build a database of such knowledge in simple English sentences. The computer will analyze these sentences to connect concepts and draw new conclusions from the things you teach it.
So, help make the world a better place by teaching the computers common sense. Because we all know how uncommon "common" sense is!
