What is the problem?

State the general problem. If applicable, tell us what information you will use, e.g., a link to some web site that provides the information you used. What will you do?

We are trying to set up an auction where different bidders bid on several goods. The goods will go to the highest bidder regardless if they have already bought another good.

What is the something extra?

What is the in-depth aspect you will do? If the problem is related to some other group's project, tell us how they fit together. If in doubt, include the information.

We can search what items each bidder bid on, as well as the goods they successfully bought. We will try to implement a way to check if you will get to keep the item if you were willing to bid on it with your selected bidding price.

Also, we will try to find a way to download a real-world auction dataset. Let Prolog process it.

Add an NLP interface which should be able to deal with more complicated sentence structures than what we learnt in class.

What did we learn from doing this?

(This should be written after you have done the work.) What is the bottom-line? Is logic programming suitable for (part-of) the task? Make sure you include the evidence for your claims.
