Notable employees[edit]

Stewart Russell is listed as a notable employee but the link associated with the name is to a wiki page for someone that appears to have no computer science training. I suspect the person who included Stewart Russell in the list must have meant the Stewart Russell who is a famous AI researcher. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuart_J._Russell However, I could not find any mention of Cyc in his bio on that page. So, I suspect the link for Stewart Russell should either be changed to Stuart_J._Russell, or his name should not be included at all.

citations needed for criticism[edit]

There seem to be a number of missing citations for the Cyc criticism section; I have added "citation needed" tags. Dedeo sfi (talk) 19:06, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

I agree. See above also. One source of specific criticism that can be cited, though it is old, is the book The Undiscovered Mind by John Horgan (1999). ★NealMcB★ (talk) 14:05, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
