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.
Just as with ordinary graphs, an AND/OR graph consists of nodes labeled by global databases. Nodes labeled by compound databases have sets of successor nodes each labeled by one of the components. These successor nodes are called AND ...
A graph consists of a (not necessarily finite) set of nodes. ... For our purposes, the nodes are labeled by databases, ... If an arc is directed from node n, to node n, then node n; is said to be a successor of node n, and node n, ...
node (except the root node) of a tree is the successor of only one node and thus is generated once only when its unique parent is expanded. ... with the result that the search tree may contain several nodes labeled by the same database.
(Backtracking strategies save only one path to a goal node; they do not save the entire record of the search as do ... The nodes are labeled with their corresponding databases and are numbered in the order in which they are selected for ...
