The new edition of this market-leading text builds upon the blend of expert systems theory and application established in earlier editions. The first half of the book concentrates on the theoretical base of expert systems, and offers a broad overview of Artificial Intelligence and its relation to expert systems. The second half of the text focuses on application, with the introduction of the CLIPS expert systems tool, and its new object-oriented language, COOL. All chapters end with an extensive problem set designed to reinforce knowledge.

"The book opens up topics to debate, suitable for an intermediate course in logic. Each chapter contains innovative features that guide us through the subject: exercises to give students hands-on experience, examples to demonstrate the application of concepts, and lists of further reading."--Jacket.
Soft ComputingArtificial IntelligenceA Guide to Intelligent SystemsMichael NegnevitskyVirtually all the literature on artificial intelligence is expressed in the jargon of computer science, crowded with complex matrix algebra and differential equations. Unlike many other books on computer intelligence, this one demonstrates that most ideas behind intelligent systems are simple and straightforward. The book has evolved from lectures given to students with little knowledge of calculus, and the reader needs no prerequisites associated with knowledge of any programming language. The methods used in the book have been extensively tested through several courses given by the author.The book provides an introduction to the field of computer intelligence, covering rule-based expert systems, fuzzy expert systems, frame-based expert systems, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computation, hybrid intelligent systems, knowledge engineering, data mining.In a university setting the book can be used as an introductory course within computer science, information systems or engineering departments. The book is also suitable as a self-study guide for non-computer science professionals, giving a
