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.
PREFACE Previous treatments of Artificial Intelligence (AI) divide the subject into its major areas of application, namely, natural language processing, automatic programming, robotics, machine vision, automatic theorem proving, ...
0.1.4, THEOREM PROVING Finding a proof (or disproof) for a conjectured theorem in mathematics can certainly be regarded as an intellectual task. Not only does it require the ability to make deductions from hypotheses but demands ...
Several automatic theorem proving programs have been developed that possess some of these same skills to a limited degree. The study of theorem proving has been significant in the development of AI methods. The formalization of the ...
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. Chapter 6 examines some of the inadequacies of simple resolution ...
Nilsson's (1971) book on problem solving in AI concentrates on search methods and applications of resolution theorem proving. An introductory book by Jackson (1974) treats these problem-solving ideas and also describes applications to ...
