The conversion of a JavaScript English-language AI into a Latin AI began on Thursday 2019–04–18 in April of 2019. Inspiration came from “Die Traumdeutung” where Sigmund Freud intones “Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo.” If one cannot bend the netgods of AI, move the mindset of Latin and Greek scholars.

A minor challenge in coding Mens Latina was the lack of an explicitly stated subject for many verbs in Latin, which occurs also in Russian. The solution was to skip three points in time-indexed memory to make room for the creation of a hidden concept to fill in for the unstated but understood subject of a verb.

Solving the AI-hard problem of the natural language understanding of a Latin or Russian sentence regardless of its syntactic word-order required waiting for the input of an entire clause before declaring subjects and objects on the basis of inflectional word-endings.

The conversion of artificial intelligence in Latin language into artificial intelligence in Russian language began yesterday on Friday 2019–05–24 in May of 2019.
