The marriage of intelligent systems and multimedia has spawned exciting new applications in fields as diverse as training, marketing, and games. This book bridges the gap between multimedia and intelligent systems design, teaching users of one the precepts of the other, while showing developers how to integrate these two technologies. Focusing on systems for use in education and entertainment, the book includes step-by-step plans for developing two small systems: a Spanish language tutor and a toaster repair system. The CD includes source code for both systems as well as an Intelligent System Shell that users can use to create their own systems.

Shows intelligent systems and multimedia developers how to fuse the two fields to create intelligent multimedia applications
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
* 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
* An intelligent system shell, including documentation
