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 resulting search procedure is called uninformed. In AI, we are typically not
interested in uninformed procedures, but we describe two types here for
purposes of comparison: depth-first search and breadth-first search. The first type
The search that results from such an ordering is called breadth-first because
expansion of nodes in the search tree proceeds along “contours” of equal depth.
In Figure 2.7, we show the search tree generated by a breadth-first search in the
HEURISTIC GRAPH-SEARCH PROCEDURES The uninformed search methods,
whether breadth-first or depth-first, are exhaustive methods for finding paths to a
goal node. In principle, these methods provide a solution to the path-finding ...
We call the GRAPHSEARCH algorithm using this evaluation function for ordering
nodes, algorithm A. Note that when h = 0 and g = d (the depth of a node in the
search tree), algorithm A is identical to breadth-first search. We claimed earlier ...
