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.

... sequences and how to monitor the execution of these plans. Complex robot control problems have forced us to develop methods for planning at high levels of abstraction, ignoring details, and then planning at lower and lower levels, ...
In most problems of this type, the domain of possible combinations or sequences from which to choose an answer is very large. Routine attempts at solving these types of problems soon generate a combinatorial explosion of possibilities ...
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.
THE 8-PUZZLE Many AI applications involve composing a sequence of operations. Controlling the actions of a robot and automatic programming are two examples. A simple and perhaps familiar problem of this sort, useful for illustrating ...
A solution to the problem is an appropriate sequence of moves, such as “move tile 6 down, move tile 8 down, ..., etc.” To solve a problem using a production system, we must specify the global database, the rules, and the control ...
