If all you are trying to do is get a usable data structure, and express it in a DSL, on the basis of prose, that's maybe doable. Anything more than that it gets sketchy. If you need more than a data structure, and if you need to extract it from something other than prose, it seems we still aren't there. Yet, anyway. But promising.

Interesting. What makes you say so? Have you seen other examples or looked into this more? I'm interested to hear details if you won't mind typing some more 🙂

Yeah, sure. Personal experimentation, and things I've read about attempting to extract semantic meaning from legal texts (which aren't regular prose). I have been able to extract predicates from a paragraph of law, for example, but trying to extract logical expressions that model more than extremely simple statements in a FOL-like way has been frustrating.
