THE WONDERFUL FINAL INSTALMENT TO THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING SERIES THAT BEGAN WITH THE ROSIE PROJECT AS RECOMMENDED ON BILL GATES' SUMMER READING LIST 'Incredibly funny, life-affirming and warm-hearted' Heat __________ Big-hearted, hilarious and exuberantly life-affirming, The Rosie Result is a story of overcoming life's obstacles with a little love and a lot of overthinking. Meet Don Tillman, the genetics professor with a scientific approach to everything. But he's facing a set of human dilemmas tougher than the trickiest of equations. Right now he is in professional hot water after a lecture goes viral for all the wrong reasons; his wife of 4,380 days, Rosie, is about to lose the research job she loves; and - the most serious problem of all - their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, is struggling at school. He's a smart kid, but socially awkward and not fitting in. Fortunately, Don's had a lifetime's experience of not fitting in. And he's going to share the solutions with Hudson. He'll need the help of old friends and new, lock horns with the education system, and face some big questions about himself. As well as opening the world's best cocktail bar. If you liked The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, then you'll love The Rosie Project series. __________ 'Uplifting' Mail on Sunday 'Hilarity is the order of the day in this joyful read' Prima 'A fun and satisfying read' Sunday Express 'A fast-paced enjoyable journey.

"ROSIE is a programming system designed to support the development of expert systems and other heuristic programming applications. ROSIE offers great promise because it combines many modern capabilities within a single system, including English as a programming language; knowledge representation capabilities; a built-in relational database system; flexible string matching and communication capabilities; highly modular programming structures; a file package and interactive programming environment. This Note describes in detail the features of the ROSIE environment, and the syntax and semantics of the ROSIE language. The Reference Manual should be useful to readers who intend to program in ROSIE or who are interested in the implementational details of the ROSIE system. 143 pp. Ref."--Rand abstracts.

"This report describes the design and implementation of an explanation facility for the Rule-Oriented System for Implementing Expertise (ROSIE) knowledge engineering language, an expert system building environment developed at The RAND Corporation. An explanation facility is critical in the construction and utilization of an expert system, since it provides the mechanisms by which the expert system can explain its performance. These mechanisms typically show the user (1) why and how the expert system reached a given conclusion, (2) why the system asked for particular information, (3) how rules and data got added to the knowledge base, (4) what is the purpose of a rule or ruleset, and (5) why the use of a rule is justified."--Rand abstracts.

In The Flowering Thorn, world authorities explore fifteen different cultures on a series of personal journeys to the heart of one of Europe's richest, most enduring cultural creations. The Flowering Thorn investigates interpretation, structure and motif, context, version, and transmission; regions, reprints, and repertoires; and the mediating collector, touching upon gender issues, collecting and editing as cultural translation, literary ballads in oral tradition class issues, and dynamic relationships between oral and print sources. Folklore, history, literature, and technology combine with structuralism and functionalism, repertoire studies, and themes of cultural change to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field today.
