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.

Instead, I have attempted here to describe fundamental AI ideas that underlie many of these applications. ... in Artificial Intelligence, are covered here as well, this book contains many additional topics such as rule-based systems, ...
... called rule-based deduction systems, that are more suitable for many AI applications. To illustrate how these deduction systems might be used, several small examples, ranging from information retrieval to automatic programming, ...
The PSI project of Green (1976) includes several components, one of which is a rule-based system for synthesizing programs from ... McCarthy (1962) as one of the applications of a proposed mathematical science of computation.
In most AI applications, the information available to the control strategy is not sufficient to permit selection of the most appropriate rule on every pass through step 4. The operation of AI production systems can thus be characterized ...
The figure shows that one of the rule applications along the path did not increase the value of our function. If none of the applicable rules permits an increase in the value of our function, a rule is selected ...
