AI Problems and Their Solutions
Boston, MA, April, 2014: AI Problems and Their Solutions lends insight into solving some well-known AI problems using the most efficient methods by humans and computers. The book discusses the importance of developing critical-thinking methods and skills, and develops a consistent approach toward each problem: 1) a precise description of a well-known AI problem coupled with an effective graphical representation; 2) discussion of possible approaches to solving each problem; 3) identifying and presenting the best known human solution to each problem; 4) evaluation and discussion of the Human Window aspects for the best solution; 5) a playability site where students can exercise the process of developing their solutions, as well as “experiencing” the best solution; 6) code or pseudo-code implementing the solution algorithm, and 7) academic references for each problem. This book is intended as a companion to any course in computer science or mathematics where there are interesting problems to solve.
