Importantly, Ms. Feldman discusses the next generation of systems that she calls "Answer Machines" and does a great job of explaining how these work by introducing us to IBM's Watson system which won the Jeopardy challenge. Since Watson is now branching out into other domains, like helping doctors to fight cancer, it is important that we understand what Answer Machines like Watson are and are not. Ms Feldman does a great job of providing that in this book.
I highly recommend the "Answer Machine" for all of the folks involved in search, SEO and everyone else who want to understand how computer search systems and "virtual assistants" are going to transform our lives over the next 10-20 years.
