Extensively rewritten over the first version of the book, this 2002 treatise on AI was developed to be as comprehensive as possible without becoming unreadable.
It is an insightful introduction to artificial intelligence heavilly biased towards the academic. Verbose is this book?s middle name. Still, sometimes that is what you desire. It leaves no stone of AI or Alife unturned, running through each in very logical order.
The book's overall theme is that the purpose of AI is to solve problems via intelligent agents, and then goes about specifying the features such an agent or agents should have. In order to aid creation of simplitic AI, pseudocode is provided for all of the major AI algorithms.
Sadly, this book is currently not available in the UK.
