Natural Language Processing can help thinking

… or at least documenting what you thought accurately.

Suppose we could feed a sentence describing our assumption:  “Android is likely to continue leading smartphone market” to the computer.

Then there could be a Paninian and logical engine that starts asking questions to us:

  • Warning: Duration is missing
  • Warning: Location is missing
  • Who else is likely to continue leading smartphone market?
  • What else can Android likely to continue leading?
  • Who is likely to continue following smartphone market?
  • Who is unlikely to continue following smartphone market?
  • By what means is Android likely to continue leading smartphone market?
  • For what is Android likely to continue leading smartphone market?
  • What happens as a result of Android continuing to lead smartphone market?
  • What can make Android unlikely to continue leading smartphone market?
  • What can make Android likely to discontinue leading smartphone market?
  • What can make Android likely to follow smartphone market?
  • What can make Android unlikely to follow smartphone market?
  • What can make any one other than Android likely to lead smartphone market?

As you can see, suddenly feeding one sentence to a computer generates a barrage of questions. It forces a product manager think from so many angles before taking a decision.

Such tools must be available. Do you know of any?
