Very quick introduction to a few algorithms, most of the book is showing and explaining the source code needed to implement them. Good for someone without much AI familiarity who wants to build something. Would have been a useful companion textbook for my AI class, but doesn't have much theory in it.
This was an interested text. I read through the first several chapters very thoroughly and ported the sample applications to Ruby as excercises. However, as the chapters progressed, I found that the sample applications were given much more weight than the explanations of the ideas presented. It was a little confusing because the sample apps included parameters that were not clearly explained. As a result, when the sample applications were of little interest to me, I was less able to understand t...more
Anyone looking to learn AI programming should read this book. It's somewhat beginner but covers basic concepts every AI developer should know and also gets into some more advanced topics. The only down-side to it is that the code samples are in plain C (mostly) so no fancy high-level code to make things easier.
