# Natural Calculator

### What is the problem?

We will use Prolog to create a calculator that interfaces with natural language input. The natural language input from the user is translated into prolog commands and the computation is run, with the numerical result returned.

### What is the something extra?

The calculator capable of solving somewhat basic equations ( +/-/*/div/pow/sqrt ) is the base of our project. The extra is the interface that understands English representations of these mathematical concepts, and is capable of translating the user's approximate intention into calculatable form.

### What did we learn from doing this?

Prolog provides a very nice framework in which to work on tasks in both natural language processing, and probabilistic models. When programming our sequence correction generator, we realized that what would be a complex system of loops in another language translated to two simple predicates in Prolog.
