Overview

Computation and Intelligence brings together 29 readings in Artificial
Intelligence that are particularly relevant to today's student/practitioner. With its helpful critique of the selections, extensive bibliography, and clear presentation of the material, Computation and Intelligence will be a useful adjunct to any course in AI as well as a handy reference for professionals in the field.The book is divided into five parts, each reflecting the stages of development of AI.
The first part, Foundations,, contains readings that present or discuss foundational ideas linking computation and intelligence, typified by A. M. Turing's "Computing
Machinery and Intelligence." The second part, Knowledge Representation, presents a sampling of numerous representational schemes by Newell, Minsky, Collins &
Quillian, Winograd, Schank, Hayes, Holland, McClelland, Rumelhart, Hinton, and
Brooks.The third part, Weak Method Problem Solving, fouses on the research and design of syntax-based problem solvers, including the most famous of these, the
Logic Theorist and GPS. The fourth part, Reasoning in Complex and Dynamic
Environments, presents a broad spectrum of the AI community's research in knowledge-intensive problem solving, from McCarthy's early design of systems with
"common sense" to model-based reasoning.The two concluding selections, by Marvin
Minsky and by Herbert Simon, respectively, present the recent thoughts of two of
AI's pioneers who revisit the concepts and controversies that have developed during the evolution of the tools and techniques that make up the current practice of
Artificial Intelligence.
