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.

PREFACE Previous treatments of Artificial Intelligence (AI) divide the subject into its major areas of application, namely, natural language processing, automatic programming, robotics, machine vision, automatic theorem proving, ...
... in commonsense reasoning, understanding language, and even driving an automobile are said to demand “intelligence. ... analyze electronic circuits, understand limited amounts of human speech and natural language text, or write small ...
NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING When humans communicate with each other using language, they employ, almost effortlessly, extremely complex and still little understood processes. It has been very difficult to develop computer systems ...
A computer system capable of understanding a message in natural language would seem, then, to require (no less than would a human) both the contextual knowledge and the processes for making the inferences (from this contextual knowledge ...
An introductory book by Jackson (1974) treats these problem-solving ideas and also describes applications to natural language processing and image analysis. The book by Hunt (1975) treats pattern recognition, as well as other AI topics.
