Editorial Reviews

Thirteen European contributors present the results of the HANSA project, a collaborative and international project dedicated to providing an object oriented framework for building software quickly using existing "hybrid" applications. These applications, explained in detail, mix and match industry standard tools, such as databases and spreadsheets, with novel Artificial Intelligence techniques like expert systems, neural networks, and genetic algorithms. The volume applies these techniques to direct marketing, banking, and executive information system situations. The appendix supplies a FTP site for HANSA framework and directions for retrieving its documents. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
