I do not know if I want to make this book either (a) a replacement for the existing Artificial Intelligence book, (b) A new book with a slightly modified title, or (c) a book focused on intellegent and expert systems. --Whiteknight (Page) (Talk) 02:35, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
- Target Audience
- Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, or a related field.
- Will discuss intelligent systems, expert systems, A.I. and the current state of the art in these fields. Will not cover neural networks, genetic algorithms, or adaptive processes. Will discuss Prolog, Lisp, and related languages, but will not serve to teach them.
- Proficiency in computer programming (any language), solid understanding of computer systems and computer architectures. Formal Logic.
