AI, Android, and your career
by Serge Masse
A personal view of AI and intelligence, with implications for Android apps and the career of Android developers.
Programming from 1969 to present. Programmed AI systems in production in the 1980’s and 1990’s: stock trading, steel manufacturing, insurance underwriting, fraud detection, etc. Worked for the best and largest AI software product company at the time: AICorp. Established relationships with surprisingly intelligent individuals from another species, which nurtured an enhanced understanding of intelligence.
