Computational Intelligence: A Logical Approach provides a unique and integrated introduction to artificial intelligence. It weaves a unifying theme--an intelligent agent acting in its environment-- through the core issues of AI, placing them into a coherent framework. Rather than giving a surface treatment of an overwhelming number of topics, it covers fundamental concepts in depth, providing a foundation on which students can build an understanding of modern AI. This logical approach clarifies and integrates representation and reasoning fundamentals, leading students from simple to complex ideas with clear motivation. The authors develop AI representation schemes and describe their uses for diverse applications, from autonomous robots to diagnostic assistants to infobots that find information in rich information sources. The authors' website (http: // offers extensive support for the text, including source code, interactive Java scripts, various pedagogical aids, and an interactive environment for developing and debugging knowledge bases.
Ideal for upper-level undergraduate and introductory graduate courses in artificial intelligence, Computational Intelligence encourages students to explore, implement, and experiment with a series of progressively richer representations that capture the essential features of more and more demanding tasks and environments.
