When discussions in the 50s and 60s turned to talk of demonstrable artificial intelligence benchmarks, visionaries looked to the day when computers could play chess and do integrals.
In announcing the immediate online availability of The Integrator, a novel web site that runs interactively using the company’s Mathematica 3.0 system, Wolfram Research demonstrates that computers can do integrals with surprising accuracy and precision–for anyone with a web browser! It even yields results in typeset form as an added bargain. So now, if you are bored playing chess with your computer, wondering how intelligent it really is, or are just worried about how you are going to finish those assignments or reports, check out http://www.integrals.com.
