Logilab (www.logilab.com) announces the release of Narval 1.0 GPL'd Intelligent Personnal Assistant Framework http://www.logilab.org/narval News ---- The engine is now stable as it has been working nicely for the past three months. It's also much faster. The Horn GUI features lots of usability improvements. The infopal application (available separately) is now usable. Description ----------- Narval is a framework (language + interpreter + GUI/IDE) dedicated to the setting up of intelligent personal assistants (IPAs). An Intelligent Personal Assitant is a companion that will help you in your daily work in the information world. It runs on your machine or on a remote server, and you can communicate with it via all standard means (email, web, telnet, phone, specific GUI, etc). It executes recipes (sequences of actions) you wrote, to perform a wide range of tasks, such as prepare your morning newspaper, help you surf the web by filtering out junk ads, keep searching the web day after day for things you want, participe in on-line auctions, learn you interests and bring you back valuable information, take care of repetitive chores, answer e-mail, negociate the date and time of a meeting, and much more... It is easy to extend the built in action library by writing new actions in Python. Infopal, your information pal, is a Narval application that implements part of the above, but Narval makes it easy for you to set up new assistants. Others applications will soon be available from Logilab.
