We describe the development and implementation of DIID, a data-independent natural language interface (NLI) from the perspective of Artificial Intelligence research. In general, we discuss the implications and applications of AI epistemology, methodology and technology for developing state-of-the-art software products such as our DIID system. In particular, we discuss how a unified knowledge representation coupled with appropriate heuristics is necessary to build a powerful, robust, and extensible NLI.
