The ACE (Aristotelian Class Editor) software package has been developed by Minerva to build taxonomies for use in artificial intelligence applications.

Minerva has made ACE, introduced in the video below, freely available for public use.

For a comprehensive introduction to the need for Aristotelian taxonomies in AI applications, together with a tutorial on how to use ACE, please click here.

For background on Aristotle’s fundamental contribution to knowledge engineering, please click here for an extract from “Artificial Intelligence: foundations of computational agents”, Cambridge University Press, 2017.
