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.

ROBOTICS The problem of controlling the physical actions of a mobile robot might not seem to require much intelligence. Even small children are able to navigate successfully through their environment and to manipulate items, ...
In chapters 7 and 8, we present methods for synthesizing sequences of actions that achieve prescribed goals. These methods are illustrated by considering simple problems in robot planning and automatic programming.
Controlling the actions of a robot and automatic programming are two examples. A simple and perhaps familiar problem of this sort, useful for illustrating basic ideas, is the 8-puzzle. The 8-puzzle consists of eight numbered, ...
The rules of the new production system represent the various ways in which a search tree can be modified by the action of the control strategy of the first production system. Clearly, any rules of the second ...
