91% success rate last 34 public inputs

Icon 3 Comments
There's a big difference between testing software yourself and then actually having other people use it. So the last 34 times that it has been used by others it has worked 91% of the time. I've worked on this project for 4.02 years for a total of 6881 hours, which amounts to 4.7 hours per day and 8.3 hours since Nov 12, 2017 and I can now safely say that I have turned the corner. I am now where I wanted to be when the project began. I thought it would take me 1000 hours to get to this point but what software engineer has not underestimated the time it takes to complete a project?

My next milestone is to be able to solve 20 paradoxes concerning the word 'cause'. That will probably take another 3000 hours.

Here's a sample of the inputs. What I do with the inputs is I predict whether or not the machine will output 'contradictory' or 'consistent'

Some dog has an inconsistent imagination.
The person has a mind.
A dog has an imagination.
The red person moves first. (this one I had to pass on because 'first' is not yet an adverb)
The dog believes a description.
A mind has an instantiated property.
the particular dog is a whole. (this one I got wrong since I accidentally wrote down my definition of 'whole' incorrectly)
A sentient being has an imagination.
The description is greater than the teacher.
some event has energy.
A dog has an imagination.

I don't get what those statements are for. Are they supposed to be taken in conjunction to form an output of 'contradictory' or 'consistent' on the last, or what is going on there/

This deserves a blog post.

Actually, I don't feel like giving a long explanation. There are certain sentences which are grammatical but logically impossible. What makes them logically impossible? Speakers of the language make them impossible. It turns out that you can program logical impossibility. So the above sentences I quoted, I have programmed the computer to compute whether or not they are logically impossible.
