Principles of Artificial IntelligenceA 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. |

... theorem proving , intelligent data retrieval systems , etc. The major difficulty with this approach is that these application areas are now so extensive , that each could , at best , be only superficially treated in a book of this ...
... THEOREM PROVING Finding a proof ( or disproof ) for a conjectured theorem in mathemat- ics can certainly be regarded as an intellectual task . Not only does it require the ability to make deductions from hypotheses but demands intuitive ...
... theorem - proving problems . For these reasons , theorem proving is an extremely important topic in the study of AI methods . 0.1.5 . ROBOTICS The problem of controlling the physical actions of a mobile robot might not seem to require ...
... theorems using resolution are discussed in chapter 5. We indicate how several different kinds of problems can be posed as theorem - proving problems . Chapter 6 examines some of the inadequacies of simple resolution systems and ...
... theorem proving . 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 ...
