Overview

Paradigms of AI Programming is the first text to teach advanced Common Lisp techniques in the context of building major AI systems. By reconstructing authentic, complex AI programs using state-of-the-art Common Lisp, the book teaches students and professionals how to build and debug robust practical programs, while demonstrating superior programming style and important AI concepts. The author strongly emphasizes the practical performance issues involved in writing real working programs of significant size. Chapters on troubleshooting and efficiency are included, along with a discussion of the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and a description of the main CLOS functions. This volume is an excellent text for a course on AI programming, a useful supplement for general AI courses and an indispensable reference for the professional programmer.

    One of the Best

    One of the best written books on the field. It really helped me see how things work from the inside and took away the awe I used to have for anything involving AI. It shows in detail how things work, what is the motivation and the reasoning behind every choice that is made ... so the reader can follow the thinking of the writer and doesn't feel lost in the mass of code presented in the book.
