Editorial Reviews

Mary Romano Marks
As humans developed tools to assist with their physical labor, they also began to create tools to stimulate the mind. Pictures were considered the first "mind tools," followed by books and other written materials. More recently, computers--mind tools of a different kind--have enabled us to exceed and enhance the capabilities of human intelligence. Intended as a guide to the world of artificial intelligence, Bortz's readable work defines the controversy surrounding the science and examines its numerous applications, new computer technologies, and expert systems. Relating the development of computer hard- and software, Bortz also introduces readers to pioneers in the field of computer science. A concise overview of interest to hackers and curious teens. A glossary and reading list are appended.
