Principles of Artificial Intelligence
Morgan Kaufmann, Jun 28, 2014 - Computers - 476 pages
A classic introduction to artificial intelligence intended to bridge the gap between theory and practice, Principles of Artificial Intelligence describes fundamental AI ideas that underlie applications such as natural language processing, automatic programming, robotics, machine vision, automatic theorem proving, and intelligent data retrieval. Rather than focusing on the subject matter of the applications, the book is organized around general computational concepts involving the kinds of data structures used, the types of operations performed on the data structures, and the properties of the control strategies used.
Principles of Artificial Intelligenceevolved from the author's courses and seminars at Stanford University and University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is suitable for text use in a senior or graduate AI course, or for individual study.

The various rules that can be applied correspond to links or directed arcs to descendant nodes, ... Even though we use graphs of this sort only with graph-search control regimes, it is useful to notice that an irrevocable control regime ...
... can always be used in a commutative system because the application of a rule never needs to be taken back or undone. ... Imagine that this production system has a global database, rules that can modify it, and a graph-search control ...
Structures called AND/OR graphs are useful for depicting the activity of production systems under this control regime. We show an example AND/OR tree for our rewrite problem in Figure 1.10. Just as with ordinary graphs, an AND/OR graph ...
