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.
... but is, instead, based on general computational concepts involving the kinds of data structures used, the types of operations performed on these data structures, and the properties of control strategies used by AI systems.
Furthermore, part of these similar, contextual mental structures allows each participant to know that the other also possesses this common structure and that the other can and will perform certain processes using it during communication ...
Fundamental to the development of such systems are certain AI ideas about structures for representing contextual knowledge and certain techniques for making inferences from that knowledge. Although we do not treat the ...
Automatic consulting systems have been built that can diagnose diseases, evaluate potential ore deposits, suggest structures for complex organic chemicals, and even provide advice about how to use other computer systems.
Some AI researchers have suggested that this knowledge be organized in special structures called frames or schemas. For example, when a robot enters a room through a doorway, it activates a room schema, which loads into working 8 ...
