I know mine will be within reach for years to come. It presents the fundamental concepts of AI in a coherent structure, which shows how different techniques are related and complementary. The book is written in a clear and engaging manner, which makes it suitable both for the serious student and for the intellectually curious layperson.
The authors manage the complexity by beginning with the simplest elements and building on these to progressively broaden and deepen the treatment. They provide a large number of references for those who wish to go beyond the text. Mayforth, Computing Reviews "It has been about 15 years since the last major history, and a lot has happened. And Nilsson has a unique viewpoint: Furthermore, he has the disposition of a careful scholar and is not inclined to push just one viewpoint.
From the beginning, his work has spanned the logical and probabilistic approaches to AI-he could give a more balanced overview than someone who has worked in only one of these camps.
I wanted to hear his take on the history of AI. The Quest for Artificial Intelligence is more personal yet more comprehensive, and presents a more nuanced appreciation of the place in history of each event.
Make no mistake: Norvig, Artificial Intelligence , doi: Over the years, I have taught from earlier editions of the texts by Luger and by Rich, Knight, and Nair. Let me explain why.
The result, I believe, is that the book has become overly long and less integrated and less useful to the average student. The result is often unsatisfying for the instructor and students find it difficult to wade through the extra material to find what is relevant for their course.
In summary, I highly recommend this book to instructors of introductory AI courses and to those who wish to learn about the foundations of the field through self-study. As many will be aware, there is already an excellent textbook by Russell and Norvig with the same target audience that has dominated the field for more than ten years. However, all things considered-selective coverage, level of detail, quality of explanations, exercises, online materials, free availability, and so on-I believe the clear advantage goes to the newcomer.
Certainly the book sets a new standard for AI textbooks with its supplementary online tools and tutorials. This is a textbook aimed at advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students presenting artificial intelligence AI using a coherent framework to study the design of intelligent computational agents.
This book encapsulates the latest results of the field without being exhaustive and encyclopedic and develops the science of AI together with its engineering applications, such as the online learning environment Aispace.

Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents is a textbook aimed at junior to senior undergraduate students and first-year graduate students. It presents artificial intelligence AI using a coherent framework to study the design of intelligent computational agents. By showing how basic approaches fit into a multidimensional design space, readers can learn the fundamentals without losing sight of the bigger picture.
The book balances theory and experiment, showing how to link them intimately together, and develops the science of AI together with its engineering applications. Although structured as a textbook, the book's straightforward, self-contained style will also appeal to a wide audience of professionals, researchers, and independent learners.
AI is a rapidly developing field: It teaches the main principles and tools that will allow readers to explore and learn on their own. The text is supported by an online learning environment, artint.

This book presents an ingenious nine dimensional taxonomy of the design space for a computational agent, which I'll call the PM Poole-Mackworth taxonomy. Unfortunately, after presenting this taxonomy in chapter 1, it is not directly referenced again until chapter 15, the final chapter. My preference would be that the PM taxonomy be referenced constantly throughout the book, for example by reference to appropriate nine-dimensional spider diagrams.
Relationships between topics would be represented as relationships between points on the PM spider diagram, and transitions between topics would be described accordingly.
