Artificial intelligence (AI) has been in existence almost as long as computers. However, only recently have AI techniques been widely incorporated by companies to enhance traditional business applications.
Building Intelligent .NET Applications is an introduction to the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for .NET programmers. It is the first book to show professional .NET developers how to incorporate AI into their daily programming. In this accessible guide, developers will learn how to enhance both new and existing .NET applications with intelligent agents, data mining, rule-based systems, and speech processing.
The author explores four of the most popular AI technologies by building real-world sample applications that readers can use as the basis for their own applications.
With Building Intelligent .NET Applications, developers will learn the basic technologies of AI needed to create practical, time-saving enterprise applications.
I wrote this book for developers who are not satisfied with “business as usual.” For developers who are always looking to improve their code and their skill sets. For developers who surf development Web sites and read technical journals, hoping to make the applications they work on better.
This book is for any developer, contract or in-house, who is building enterprise-wide applications. The applications could range from those running standalone within the company to those dispersed geographically as Web applications. The companies could be of any size, large or small, but large organizations will probably find the most benefits.
Readers already familiar with Microsoft products, and especially with Visual Studio .NET, will get the most out of this book. It focuses on using AI-based techniques with Microsoft products. Readers already familiar with Microsoft SQL Server will be the most comfortable, since all of the applications utilize Transact-SQL (T-SQL) inside stored procedures.
