Intelligent Multimedia Systems: A Handbook for Creating Applications

Front Cover
Wiley, Apr 21, 1997 - Computers - 494 pages
This powerful book/CD-ROM package provides developers with the knowledge and skills they need to create sophisticated intelligent multimedia systems. Randy Kaplan clearly explains the principles of each field and then reveals how to fuse everything together. Focusing on systems for use in education and entertainment, he provides a complete intelligent multimedia development methodology; proven, easy-to-master programming techniques; and a valuable set of development tools, including tools for creating a frame database and an expert system shell. Intelligent Multimedia Systems provides step-by-step plans for developing a small, complete system, the "Toaster Tutor" - a toaster repair system. The system can be executed using off-the-shelf software, and, like all the other examples in the book, it is written in Visual Basic. The CD-ROM gives you source code for all examples in the book and an intelligent system shell, including documentation.
