Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Some pioneers of artificial intelligence dreamed of the super-intelligent computer with problem-solving performance that would rival, or exceed, human performance. The dream was partially realized in expert systems, programs that perform super-intelligently for narrow ranges of human endeavor. The dream transformed with the development of knowledge systems, programs that provide humans intelligent help for problem solving. Feigenbaum describes successful applications of these two types of knowledge-based computer systems which offer great economic and competitive leverage. He notes that as the technology moved through early stages toward general industry adoption the response has been cautious, slow, and linear (rather than exponential). The 'tiger' is in a cage and Feigenbaum sets the challenge of understanding the bars."
