Cover Image Creation: Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig; Tamara Newnam and Patrice Van Acker Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a big field, and this is a big book.
AI is too legitimate and interesting a field to justify that sort of crap in a university textbook.
In spite of all that, though, it's still a very good book, and a good overview of the field. I particularly liked that each chapter had an extensive section with historical and biographical notes at the end. If nothing else, it at least demonstrates that if the AI winter was ever a real thing at least in terms of research activity and progress , it's far behind us now.
Artificial Intelligence is, in the context of the infant science of computing, a very old and very broad subdiscipline, the "Turing test" having arisen, not only at the same time, but from the same person as many of the foundations of computing itself. Those of us students of a certain age will recall terms like "symbolic" vs.
In short, a major challenge facing anyone wishing to survey Artificial Intelligence is simply coming up with a unifying theme. The major accomplishment, in my opinion, of AIMA, then, is that: Russell and Norvig take the hodge-podge of AI research, manage to fit it sensibly into a narrative structure centered on the notion of different kinds of "agents" not to be confused with that portion of AI research that explicitly refers to its constructs as "agents!
It's up to the reader whether to follow the arcs of the stone from major subject to major subject, foregoing depth, or whether to pick a particular contact point and concentrate on the eddies propagating from it. For the latter purpose, the extensive bibliography is indispensable. With all of this said, I have to acknowledge that Russell and Norvig are not entirely impartial AI practitioners. Norvig, in particular, is well-known by now as a staunch Bayesian probabilist who, as Director of Search Quality or Machine Learning or whatever Google has decided to call it today, has made Google the Bayesian powerhouse that it is.

This page intentionally left blank Preface Artificial Intelligence AI is a big field, and this is a big book. We have tried to explore the full breadth of the field, which encompasses logic, probability, and continuous mathematics; perception, reasoning, learning, and action; and everything from microelectronic devices to robotic planetary explorers.
The book is also big because we go into some depth. We apologize to those whose subfields are, as a result, less recognizable. New to this edition This edition captures the changes in AI that have taken place since the last edition in There have been important applications of AI technology, such as the widespread deploy- ment of practical speech recognition, machine translation, autonomous vehicles, and house- hold robotics.
There have been algorithmic landmarks, such as the solution of the game of checkers.
And there has been a great deal of theoretical progress, particularly in areas such as probabilistic reasoning, machine learning, and computer vision. Most important from our point of view is the continued evolution in how we think about the field, and thus how we organize the book.
