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.

We further distinguish two different types of tentative control regimes. In one, which we call backtracking, a backtracking point is established when a rule is selected. Should subsequent computation encounter difficulty 21 PRODUCTION ...
Should subsequent computation encounter difficulty in producing a solution, the state of the computation reverts to the previous backtracking point, where another rule is applied instead, and the process continues.
Backtracking. In many problems of interest, applying an inappropriate rule may prevent or substantially delay successful termination. In these cases, we want a control strategy that can try a rule and, if it later discovers that this ...
The backtracking process is one way in which the control strategy can be tentative. A rule is selected, and if it doesn't lead to a solution, the intervening steps are “forgotten,” and another rule is selected instead.
