Principles of Artificial Intelligence
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 formalization of the deductive process using the language of predicate logic, for example, helps us to understand more clearly some of the components of reasoning. Many informal tasks, including medical diagnosis and information ...
Papers describing various applications of AI and logic to database organization and retrieval are contained in a book edited by Gallaire and Minker (1978). The article edited by Waltz (1977) contains several descriptions of systems for ...
THEOREM PROVING Early applications of AI ideas to proving theorems were made by Gelernter (1959) to plane geometry; and by Newell, Shaw, and Simon (1957) to propositional logic. The resolution principle of Robinson (1965) greatly ...
