Hello, my name is Michael Benson, and I am the "MasterChef" behind the Mystery Master website (http://www.mysterymaster.com). The specialty of my website is solving logic grid puzzles, also known as logic puzzles or logic problems. My menu gives you a choice of 30 puzzles, and all have been solved by the Mystery Master application. I hope with the support of logic puzzle enthusiasts, AI pioneers, and sympathetic artificial beings, the solving component will soon be available online. For now, this component is the missing ingredient.
One artificial being on my side, though not very sympathetic, is my "spokesman" Alan. Alan, my Artificial Linguistics Nanobot, is the spicy voice behind the many videos about logic puzzles that you can find on my help page. But I don't need Alan to tell you the reason behind my website: "My goal is to create a program that can solve any logic grid puzzle." A logical person may respond to that statement with the question "Where's the beef?" The answer is...
There is a lot you can learn about the Mystery Master application by sampling my help page, but here is the basic recipe:
I hope you enjoyed my introduction to the Mystery Master website. This is just a small appetizer compared to the vast feast that Mystery Master can provide.
I better stop now; my metaphors are making me hungry. But before I go, I will leave you with a sinewy question for your brain to gnaw on:
Can you write a program that (1) converts the text of a logic puzzle to data, and (2) uses that data to solve the logic puzzle?
I am a software developer, who is a jack of all trades, yet has the audacity to call himself Mystery Master.
My current position is virtual zookeeper of the Mystery Master website at http://www.mysterymaster.com.
I know "a lot" about websites, though I may respond with "mythological Greek hero" if you ask me what I know about Ajax.
When I'm not at my computer, I am travelling far more than I like to places far more exciting than I can handle.
