Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents
by David Poole, Alan Mackworth - Cambridge University Press , 2010
A book about the science of artificial intelligence, it presents AI as the study of the design of intelligent computational agents. The book is structured as a textbook, but it is accessible to a wide audience of professionals and researchers.
by Andras Kornai - Springer , 2010
The book introduces the mathematical foundations of linguistics to computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. The book presents linguistics as a cumulative body of knowledge from the ground up: no prior knowledge of linguistics is assumed.
by Wei Zhang - InTech , 2010
Fault diagnosis technology is a synthetic technology, which relates to several subjects: modern control theory, reliability theory, mathematical statistics, fussy set theory, information handling, pattern recognition and artificial intelligence.
Multiagent Systems: Algorithmic, Game-Theoretic, and Logical Foundations
by Yoav Shoham, Kevin Leyton-Brown - Cambridge University Press , 2008
Multiagent systems consist of multiple autonomous entities having different information and diverging interests. This comprehensive introduction to the field offers a computer science perspective, but also draws on ideas from game theory.
by Felix Jesus Villanueva Molina - InTech , 2010
In this book we analyze a selection of open problems which we consider the key ones in order to let ambient intelligence become a reality. This book provides the reader with a good idea about the current research lines in ambient intelligence.
