This book 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. Features:

  • Addresses AI problems well known to computer science and mathematics students from a number of perspectives
  • Covers classic AI problems such as Twelve Coins, Red Donkey, Cryptarithms, Rubik’s Cube, Missionaries/Cannibals, Knight’s Tour, Monty Hall, and more
  • Includes a companion CD-ROM with source code, solutions, figures, and more
  • Includes playability sites where students can exercise the process of developing their solutions
  • Describes problem-solving methods which may be applied to many problem situations
