Helping motorists from police reports - Poetic

A typical example of a symbolic AI application. ``Portable Extendable Traffic Information Collator''. A natural-language system which reads police incident logs and selects out information about those traffic problems which might concern other motorists. From these, builds up a coherent description of each incident, and then works out how motorists in the area might avoid the problem. Converts the advice into English, and then decides where best to broadcast each message. See POETIC: A System for gathering and distributing traffic information by R Gaizauskas, R Evans, L J Cahill, J Richardson, J Walker, photocopy G87 in the AI box: these include examples of the police logs that serve as input, and the advice generated as output, and are easy to read even if you are new to AI.
