Sample text

The book emphasizes primary decision-making paradigms, and as such does not delve into the important areas of pathfinding (at least, not directly; many of the techniques presented could be used to run a pathfinder) or perception, although they are discussed. This book assumes a working knowledge of C++, the classical data structures, and a basic knowledge of object-oriented programming. The demonstration programs are written in Microsoft Visual C++® under the Windows® platform, but only the rendering is platform specific, and the rendering API used is the GLUT extension to OpenGL, so that you could easily port to another system if necessary.

2. 3. 4. thinking humanly thinking rationally acting humanly acting rationally In academic study, all four parts of this definition have been the basis for building intelligent programs. The Turing test is a prime example of a program specifically created for acting humanly—the test states that if you cannot tell the difference between the actions of the program and the actions of a person, that program is intelligent. Some cognitive theorists, who are helping to blend traditional human mind science into AI creation, hope to lead towards human-level intelligence by actually getting a computer to think humanly.

The chances of getting the best possible solution are directly linked to the number and amount of limitations. In other words, you get what you pay for. BO techniques are prevalent in most academic AI circles (as well as in game theory and even philosophy) because “optimal” solutions to real-life problems are usually computationally intractable. Another reason is that very few real-life problems have no limitations. Given the realities of our world, we need a method of measuring success without requiring absolute rationality.
