What Is Thinking?

What is Turing's Test? What is Gödel's Undecidability Theorem? How is Berners-Lee's Semantic Web logic going to overcome paradoxes and complexity to produce machine processing on the Web?

Thinking on the Web draws from the contributions of Tim Berners-Lee (What is solvable on the Web?), Kurt Gödel (What is decidable?), and Alan Turing (What is machine intelligence?) to evaluate how much "intelligence" can be projected onto the Web.

The authors offer both abstract and practical perspectives to delineate the opportunities and challenges of a "smarter" Web through a threaded series of vignettes and a thorough review of Semantic Web development.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Anyone with experience of HCI will want to read this book which after all, has provided a new and entirely different way of providing a stimulus to a subject that is very much in need of direction.? (Kybernetes, 2009)

"A fine introduction to what the Web can do now and what may de done in the near future-for everyone interested in the Web." (CHOICE, July 2007)

"I recommend this book to readers who would like to think about the way the Web is influenced by logic in its evolution into a semantic framework of applications." (Computing Reviews.com, February 19, 2006)
