The book introduces and discusses the future trends in computer science and artificial intelligence. These trends include image and speech technologies; virtual reality and multimedia systems; evolving systems and artificial life; artificial and natural neural networks; brain-computers; the Web, the intelligent agents on it, and the distributed processing systems; mobile robots in a real and in a virtual environment; bioinformatics, and the marriage of genetic engineering and information science. The book comprises chapters written by well known specialists in this field and can be used by scientists and graduate students from different areas, as well as by a wider audience of people interested in the present and future development of intelligent systems, in all areas of information sciences.
