This book creates a vision of how solvable problems can be logically addressed on the Web to produce a semblance of machine intelligence. The unique advantage of this book is that while it addresses these sophisticated AI concepts for the Web, it presents the material at a level appropriate for the general tech-savvy audience. It also offers professional Web and software developers, insight into the next generation Web architectures and AI technologies. The professional access to tools, software and demos that enriches the book's presentations and which would be too advanced for the layman. Professionals will also benefit through the insights of connecting multiple AI concepts over the breath of coverage and gaining an appreciation of which AI areas are worthwhile to pursue.· Part Ii: Web Ontology and Logic.· Part I: What is Web Intelligence.

Most websites have missing or inadequate accessibility, costing organizations billions in lawsuits and lost revenue every year, and those responsible for designing and building those websites often lack the knowledge to help. But, there is a way to design and build accessible websites and develop in-house knowledge at the same time, and Thinking About Web Accessibility can show you how. In this easy-to-follow guide, user interface and web accessibility expert H Robert King draws on his vast experience creating interfaces for hundreds of millions of users across the globe, and identifies both stumbling blocks to avoid and stepping stones on the path to take as he shows you why you're missing out on revenue and how to fix it.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR I have a confession to make: I call myself a designer, but I never went to design school, only worked in a web agency for a couple months, and learned what I know by reading blogs and following along tutorials. I think this is one of the reasons why I love writing and blogging: it gives me a chance to give back and in turn help aspiring designers just like I was helped myself. And I also blog because I want to show that although good design can often feel magical, the process itself isn't: it's just about mastering the basics, and a lot of hard work. If I can do it, I believe you probably can as well. So what you have here is a selection of the most interesting articles I've written over the past couple years. All I hope is that they will help make a long plane ride a little bit shorter, and just maybe give you some new perspectives on design. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK User Experience is a term you hear thrown around a whole lot lately. For some people it means the way a site looks and feels, for others it's all about a site's architecture, but for most of them it's just an empty buzzword that doesn't mean anything at all. User experience is all that and much more. It literally is what users think and feel while using your product. UX Is Everywhere If your site has a painless sign-up process, that's part of the user experience. If your site uses gorgeous photos, that's part of the user experience. If your site is unbearably slow, that's UX too. And if your site is perfect, but there's a bug in your code and you end up charging people twice as much for your product, well guess what, that's also part of their (very bad) user experience. So "user experience design" can include web design, photography, speed optimization, coding, to say nothing of copywriting, branding, security, interaction design, or information architecture. We're All User Experience Designers It logically follows that someone who calls himself a "user experience designers" should be involved in every one of those aspects. But instead, actual "user experience designers" usually come in during the early stages of a project, and use wireframes and prototypes to plan out design, architecture, and interactions. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's not a real job. But I feel like it should be called something else, like maybe "Prototype Designer" or "User Experience Consultant" if the person comes in at a later stage to analyze an existing site. In my mind, the title of "User Experience Designer" does not belong to a single person. Instead, it should be embraced by everybody contributing to the project, whether they are a designer, coder, photographer, writer, or systems administrator. Because after all, their work is what ultimately defines the user's experience. "Can You Add More UX to It?" Why is that important at all? Isn't all this just a question of semantics? Well, yes, it is. But bad semantics lead to bad communication, and that in turn leads to bad results. It's not uncommon to hear clients asking if you "do UX" or asking a designer if they "focus on UX." UX soon becomes an empty buzzword that can mean whatever the client wants it to mean. User Experience Professionals have done a great job of promoting UX as a concept. But I feel it's now time that designers reclaim that term and make it clear that "UX" is not a mysterious new idea, but instead part of what every designer does every day. Buy the book to read more!

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.

This groundbreaking IABC Research Foundation report finally addresses the communication and public relations functions of the majority of the world's businesses. Ninety percent of businesses in the U.S. alone are considered to be small, having fewer than 20 employees, yet no studies until now have focused exclusively on the PR practices of small businesses. This information is vital to an understanding of the ways in which entrepreneurs and small business owners think about communication. Do they follow PR rules by the book, or do they adapt and improvise as they go? Does one need to be a trained PR "expert" to communicate successfully?

Do your students have the tools to distinguish between the true science of human thought and behavior, and pop psychology? Ruscio's new book provides a tangible and compelling framework for making that distinction. Because we are inundated with "scientific" claims, the author does not merely differentiate science and pseudoscience, but goes further to teach the fundamentals of scientific reasoning on which students can base their evaluation of information.

Web 2.0 makes headlines, but how does it make money? This concise guide explains what's different about Web 2.0 and how those differences can improve your company's bottom line. Whether you're an executive plotting the next move, a small business owner looking to expand, or an entrepreneur planning a startup, Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide illustrates through real-life examples how businesses, large and small, are creating new opportunities on today's Web. This book is about strategy. Rather than focus on the technology, the examples concentrate on its effect. You will learn that creating a Web 2.0 business, or integrating Web 2.0 strategies with your existing business, means creating places online where people like to come together to share what they think, see, and do. When people come together over the Web, the result can be much more than the sum of the parts. The customers themselves help build the site, as old-fashioned "word of mouth" becomes hypergrowth. Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide demonstrates the power of this new paradigm by examining how: Flickr, a classic user-driven business, created value for itself by helping users create their own value Google made money with a model based on free search, and changed the rules for doing business on the Web-opening opportunities you can take advantage of Social network effects can support a business-ever wonder how FaceBook grew so quickly? Businesses like Amazon tap into the Web as a source of indirect revenue, using creative new approaches to monetize the investments they've made in the Web Written by Amy Shuen, an authority on Silicon Valley business models and innovation economics, Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide explains how to transform your business by looking at specific practices for integrating Web 2.0 with what you do. If you're executing business strategy and want to know how the Web is changing business, this book is for you.
