Hi all,

I'm developing a location-based search engine for a few New York
neighborhoods and was hoping that I could get some advice on natural
language processing. Specifically, I'd like to figure out how to
answers questions like these:

1) "Where can I find the best pizza on the Upper West Side?"
For questions like this one, I would like the engine to respond by
searching for Upper West Side restaurants that users have rated highly
for their pizza.

2) "Where do I go to have fun this weekend?"
With questions like these, I would like the engine to use more
questions to figure out what the user wants to do to prepare (e.g. "Do
you want movie recommendations?" "Do you want restaurant
recommendations?"). Once the user answers a few of these questions, the
engine could give him specific recommendations. ("Yes? Well, here's
where this movie is playing in your neighborhood").

In both cases, the engine has to identify natural language patterns for
questions. It should also be able to process more technical search
query methods.

Anyone who wants more details or would like to give implementation
suggestions can contact me at
