From the Author

I've been a software developer and architect for 18 years, with half of that time spent building artificial intelligence solutions.  In those 18 years, I've read and learned from more books, blogs, and podcasts than I can count.  I'm excited to give back by producing original content of my own.  I like to say that I've been standing on the shoulders of giants for long enough now; I'd like to be a giant for someone else.  I look forward to hearing about the wonderful solutions that readers of this book are going to build.
