Foundations of Constraint Satisfaction
by Edward Tsang
Publisher: Academic Press 1993
Number of pages: 300
Constraint satisfaction is a general problem in which the goal is to find values for a set of variables that will satisfy a given set of constraints. It is the core of many applications in artificial intelligence, and has found its application in many areas, such as planning and scheduling. Published in 1993, this book was the first attempt to define the field of constraint satisfaction. It covers both the theoretical and the implementation aspects of the subject. It provides a framework for studying this field, relates different research, and resolves ambiguity in a number of concepts and algorithms in the literature.

'Building the Second Mind' is a history of the origins of AI. AI, the field that seeks to do things that would be considered intelligent if a human being did them, was developed as a general concept over centuries - it is a constant of human thought.

With the increase in development of technology, there is research of human-like artificial intelligence that can be self-aware and act just like humans. This book explores how we may be close to developing a true artificially intelligent being.

A book about the science of artificial intelligence, it presents AI as the study of the design of intelligent computational agents. The book is structured as a textbook, but it is accessible to a wide audience of professionals and researchers.
