Overview

Knowledge management and knowledge-based intelligence are areas of importance in today's economy and society, and their exploitation requires representation via the development of a declarative interface whose input language is based on logic. Chitta Baral demonstrates how to write programs that behave intelligently by giving them the ability to express knowledge and reason about it. He presents a language, AnsProlog, for both knowledge representation and reasoning, and declarative problem solving. Many of the results have never appeared before in book form but are organized here for those wishing to learn more about the subject, either in courses or through self-study.

Review of the hardback: '… the appearance of an extensive book with such a deep theoretical content and with analyses, methods and examples useful for practical applications is admirable after the very short history of Answer Set Programming.' Zentralblatt MATH
