I have been programming in C and C++ for more than four years, the first time that i had learn programming was in 1999 in college. However it was only by the year 2000 when i have buy my first computer that i had truly started to do some more interesting things in programming. As a programmer,my main interest is A.I programming. So i'm really captivated by all that is related to N.L.U (Natural Language Understanding), N.L.P (Natural Language Processing), Artificial Neural Networks etc. Currently i'm learning to program in Prolog and Lisp. Also,i'm really fascinated with the original chatterbot program named: Eliza,that program was wrote by Joseph Weizenbaum. Everytime i run this program,it makes me really think that A.I could be solve one day. A lot of interesting stuff has been accomplish in the domain of Artificial Intelligence in the past years. A very good example of those accomplishments is: Logic Programming,which makes it possible to manipulate logic statements and also to make some inferences about those statements. A classical example would be: given the fact that "Every man is mortal" and that Socrates is a man,than logically we can deduce that Socrates is mortal. Such simple logical statements can be wrote in Prolog by using just a few lines of code:

prolog code sample:

mortal(X):- man(X). % rule
man(socrates). % declaring a fact

the preceding prolog rule can be read: for every variable X,if X is a man than X is mortal. these last Prolog code sample can be easily extented by adding more facts or rules,example:
mortal(X):- man(X). % rule
mortal(X):- woman(X). % rule
man(socrates). % fact 1
