Abstract

Reliable, high performance computer programs are now influencing the ways younger chemists think about and solve their problems. Smart programs are serving as problem solving assistants for more and more complex tasks. However, using computer programs intelligently is as important as building intelligence into them in the first place. Good design must be coupled with intelligent use.
