Overview

The computer is a surprisingly seductive device: it tempts us with the promise of its great power, but also entices the unwary to overstep the bounds of manageable complexity. Managers, business owners, computer literate individuals, and software developers alike are all seeking an understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) and wondering what its uses might be.

In this literate and easy-to-read discussion, Derek Partridge helps us understand what AI can and cannot do. Topics discussed include:
-- strengths and weaknesses of software development and engineering
-- the promises and problems of machine learning
-- expert systems and success stories
-- practical software through artificial intelligence, and more.
