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.
What we mean here by automatic programming might be described as a “supercompiler,” or a program that could take in a very high-level description of what the program is to accomplish and produce a program. The high-level description ...
This model might consist of a high-level description such as “A hill with a tree on top with cattle grazing.” The point of the whole perception process is to produce a condensed representation to substitute for the unmanageably immense, ...
Various rules of inference, including resolution, are described. Systems for proving theorems using resolution are discussed in chapter 5. We indicate how several different kinds of problems can be posed as theorem-proving problems.
One of the first successful AI systems for understanding limited fragments of natural language is described in a book by Winograd (1972). The book by Newell et al. (1973) describes the five-year goals of a research project to develop a ...
interface systems for subsets of natural language are described in an article edited by Waltz (1977). Proceedings of biannual conferences on Theoretical Issues in Natural Language Processing (TINLAP) contain several important papers.
