Alexa, How Can I Reason with Prolog?

Abstract

As with Amazon's Echo and its conversational agent Alexa, smart voice-controlled devices become ever more present in daily life, and many different applications can be integrated into this platform. In this paper, we present a framework that eases the development of skills in Prolog. As Prolog has a long history in natural language processing, we may integrate well-established techniques, such as reasoning about knowledge with Attempto Controlled English, instead of depending on example phrases and pre-defined slots.
