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.
Figure 1.6 shows part of the search tree that might be generated by a graph-search control strategy in solving this problem. The numbers next to the edges of the tree are the increments of distance added to the trip by applying the ...
Imagine that this production system has a global database, rules that can modify it, and a graph-search control strategy that generates a search tree of global databases. Now consider another production system whose global database is ...
Various AI programming languages use backtracking as a built-in search strategy [Bobrow and Raphael (1974)]. The literature on heuristic graph searching is extensive; several references are cited in the next two chapters.
1.8 Critically discuss the following thesis: Backtracking (or depth-first graph-search) control strategies should be used when there are multiple paths between problem states because these strategies tend to avoid exploring all of the ...
Compared with graph-search control regimes, backtracking strategies are typically simpler to implement and require less storage. A simple recursive procedure captures the essence of the operation of a production system under ...
