This book is a comprehensive survey of our scientific knowledge about human intelligence, written by a researcher who has spent more than 30 years studying the field, receiving a Lifetime Contribution award from the International Society for Intelligence. Human Intelligence takes a non-ideological view of a topic in which, too often, writings are dominated by a single theory or social viewpoint. The book discusses the conceptual status of intelligence as a collection of cognitive skills that include, but also go beyond, those skills evaluated by conventional tests; intelligence tests and their analysis; contemporary theories of intelligence; biological and social causes of intelligence; the importance of intelligence in social, industrial, and educational spheres; the role of intelligence in determining success in life, both inside and outside educational settings; and the nature and causes of variations in intelligence across age, gender, and racial and ethnic groups.

Mit explorativem Testen können unerwartete Ereignisse, schwerwiegende Fehler und andere Risiken in Software aufgedeckt werden. Bei dieser Technik werden kleine, schnelle Analysen durchgeführt. Dabei wird jeweils auf den Erfahrungen der letzten experimentellen Analyse aufgesetzt. Als Softwareentwickler oder Tester schärfen Sie mit explorativem Testen Ihre Fähigkeit, Software zu analysieren. Mithilfe dieses Buchs lernen Sie, spontane experimentelle Tests durchzuführen, Ihre Beobachtungsgabe zu schärfen und dabei Ihren Arbeitsaufwand zu bündeln. Der Inhalt des Buches ist in drei Teile gegliedert: Teil 1 behandelt die Grundlagen des explorativen Testens. Sie lernen, anhand von Testcharter Ihre Analysen zu begleiten und die tatsächlichen Vorgänge zu verstehen, interessante Analysevarianten herauszufinden und das zu erwartende Verhalten der Software zu bestimmen. Teil 2 beschreibt, wie Sie Software untersuchen, indem Sie Interaktionen, Sequenzen, Daten, Zeitabläufe und Konfigurationen ändern. Auf diesem Weg erfahren Sie, wozu Zustandsmodelle, Datenmodelle und Kontextdiagramme bei der Analyse nützlich sein können. Teil 3 überträgt die vorgestellten Techniken auf ein Softwareprojekt. Sie können Ihre Fähigkeiten und die Techniken in den unterschiedlichen Kontexten (z.B. Embedded-Systeme, Webanwendungen, Desktopanwendungen) anwenden und sogar zu Beginn eines Entwicklungszyklus einsetzen. Dieses Buch bietet eine Fülle konkreter und praktischer Tipps, wie Software analysiert werden kann, um ihre Möglichkeiten, Grenzen und Risiken herauszufinden.

Wir sind umgeben von Zahlen. Ob auf Kreditkarten gestanzt oder auf Münzen geprägt, ob auf Schecks gedruckt oder in den Spalten computerisierter Tabellen aufgelistet, überall beherrschen Zahlen unser Leben. Sie sind auch der Kern unserer Technologie. Ohne Zahlen könnten wir weder Raketen starten, die das Sonnensystem erkunden, noch Brücken bauen, Güter austauschen oder Rech nungen bezahlen. In gewissem Sinn sind Zahlen also kulturelle Erfindungen, die sich ihrer Bedeutung nach nur mit der Landwirtschaft oder mit dem Rad vergleichen lassen. Aber sie könnten sogar noch tiefere Wurzeln haben. Tausende von Jahren vor Christus benutzten babylonische Wissenschaftler Zahlzeichen, um erstaun lich genaueastronomische Tabellen zu berechnen. Zehntausende von Jahren zuvor hatten Menschen der Steinzeit die ersten geschriebenen Zahlenreihen geschaffen, indem sie Knochen einkerbten oder Punkte auf Höhlenwände malten. Und, wie ich später überzeugend darzustellen hoffe, schon vor weiteren Millionen von Jahren, lange bevor es Menschen gab, nahmen Tiere aller Arten Zahlen zur Kenntnis und stellten mit ihnen einfache Kopfrechnungen an. Sind Zahlen also fast so alt wie das Leben selbst? Sind sie in der Struktur unseres Gehirns verankert? Besitzen wir einen Zahlensinn, eine spezielle Intuition, die uns hilft, Zahlen und Mathematik mit Sinn zu erfüllen? Ich wurde vor fünfzehn Jahren, während meiner Ausbildung zum Mathema tiker, fasziniert von den abstrakten Objekten, mit denen ich umzugehen lernte, vor allem von den einfachsten von ihnen- den Zahlen.
