so if string(any symbol) !=1 then ++
if string(any combination of symbols) !=1 then ++
so 1 would represent an item, and as long as it occurs more than once it is considered official.
so now the question is that given the highest number, can we prompt a response that also has the highest number within that environment. Take this for example.
Where did John go?
He went to the bathroom.
The string H+e occurs 168(arbitrary) times after the string J+o+h+n. Therefor, "John" most probably occurs with "he." Which means that given the input "John," we can respond most probably with "he." Did+Go -> went; where-> to the bathroom.
I know that this method alone will not produce a fully competent machine, but when we condition it with probable cooccurrences (or statistical correlations between items and operations) it will.
The idea is that it will build "knowledge."
