Reviews

'This new edition of the already classic Introduction to Artificial Intelligence by Poole and Mackworth provides a broad coverage of the symbolic and non-symbolic approaches underpinning the main current and future approaches to AI. It combines an accessible treatment of the underlying theory with practical examples that bring the theory to life. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the current state of the art, and to be prepared for the future.' Robert Kowalski, Imperial College London
'Poole and Mackworth provide a crystal clear introduction to artificial intelligence. Their book paints a complete picture of the field, from the logical foundations to the latest breakthroughs in learning, representation, reasoning, and multi-agent systems. The authors view AI as the integration of a diverse set of technologies. Layer by layer, they introduce all the techniques required to build an intelligent agent. The book stands out as being both comprehensive and uncompromising, limiting the material to the most promising and intellectually gratifying topics.' Guy Van den Broeck, University of California, Los Angeles
