explain how does the process of instant messaging from one computer to another cmputer take place?
User launches the IM client
IM client finds the IM server & logs in
It sends communication info (IP address, etc) to the IM server
IM server finds user’s contacts & sends him/her the communication info
for the ones online
IM server also tells the contacts that the user is online; sends his/her
communication info to them
Now the user’s & the contact’s IM clients are ready to communicate

q 10 marks 5

the appropriateness of a technique of technology can be determined by considering some aspects related to that technique of technology . enlist any five aspects which may be considered while selecting an AI technique.

if 2 techniques produce solutions of a similar quality, matching the right technique
to a problem can save on time & resources
Characteristics of an optimal technique:
The solution contains all of the required information
The solution meets all other necessary criteria
The solution uses all of the available (useful) knowledge
How do we determine the suitability of a particular AI technique for a given task. We
look at the task’s requirements and then see which technique fulfils those requirements
more completely – the one which does, is the one we use!
