Artificial Intelligence: Structures and Strategies for Complex Problem Solving (5th Edition)
928 pages | Publisher: Addison Wesley; 5 edition (October 10, 2004) | English | ISBN: 0321263189| PDF | 28 MB
Much has changed since the early editions of Artificial Intelligence were published. To reflect this the introductory material of this fifth edition has been substantially revised and rewritten to capture the excitement of the la developments in AI work. Artificial intelligence is a diverse field. To ask the question "what is intelligence?" is to invite as many answers as there are approaches to the subject of artificial intelligence. These could be intelligent agents, logical reasoning, neural networks, expert systems, evolutionary computing and so on. This fifth edition covers all the main strategies used for creating computer systems that will behave in "intelligent" ways. It combines the broadest approach of any text in the marketplace with the practical information necessary to implement the strategies discussed, showing how to do this through Prolog or LISP programming.
New to this edition
Â· Brand new chapter which introduces the stochastic methodology.
Â· Extended material in many sections addresses the continuing importance of agent-based problem solving and embodiment in AI technology.
Â· Presentation of issues in natural language understanding, including sections on stochastic methods for language comprehension; Markov models; CART trees; mutual information clustering; and statistic based parsing.
Â· Further discussion of the AI endeavor from the perspectives of philosophy, psychology, and neuro-psychology.
Artificial Intelligence: Structures and Strategies for Complex Problem Solving is ideal for a one or two semester university course on AI, as well as an invaluable reference for researchers in the field or practitioners wishing to employ the power of current AI techniques in their work.
After receiving his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania,George Lugerspent five years researching and teaching at the Department of Artificial Intelligence of the University of Edinburgh.
