Parsing is like 10% of natural language processing. I'm not sure you know what you're getting into.

The other problem with doing it for business rules is ambiguity. Do you want that ambiguity leaking into your accounts receivable tables? Because this is how it happens.

The quickest dirtiest way to get natural language processing into your business rules is to use Amazon's voice recognition services, and then plug it into a rule writer based off of that.

Then take that rule writer and plug it into a system you do not care about, because it's not going to give you anything good, particularly given that the type of people who would require natural language processing to produce business rules lack the analytical chops to craft solid business rules in the first place.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
