Increased coverage of material — New or expanded coverage of constraint satisfaction, local search planning methods, multi-agent systems, game theory, statistical natural language processing and uncertain reasoning over time.
More detailed descriptions of algorithms for probabilistic inference, fast propositional inference, probabilistic learning approaches including EM, and other topics. More Online Software. Allows many more opportunities for student projects on the web. A unified, agent-based approach to AI — Organizes the material around the task of building intelligent agents. Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage — Includes a unified view of the field organized around the rational decision making paradigm.
A flexible format. Makes the text adaptable for varying instructors' preferences.
In-depth coverage of basic and advanced topics. Pseudo-code versions of the major AI algorithms are presented in a uniform fashion, and Actual Common Lisp and Python implementations of the presented algorithms are available via the Internet.

The major changes are as follows: More emphasis is placed on partially observable and nondeterministic environments, especially in the nonprobabilistic settings of search and planning. The concepts of belief state a set of possible worlds and state estimation maintaining the belief state are introduced in these settings; later in the book, probabilities are added.
In addition to discussing the types of environments and types of agents, there is more in more depth coverage of the types of representations that an agent can use. Coverage of planning goes into more depth on contingent planning in partially observable environments and includes a new approach to hierarchical planning.
New material on first-order probabilistic models is added, including open-universe models for cases where there is uncertainty as to what objects exist. The introductory machine-learning chapter is completely rewritten, stressing a wider variety of more modern learning algorithms and placing them on a firmer theoretical footing.
Expanded coverage of Web search and information extraction, and of techniques for learning from very large data sets. You can also download the eText for days through CourseSmart http: Table of Contents I. Artificial Intelligence 1. Introduction 1.

It starts off strongly for a few hundred pages, but then for no reason at all devotes several chapters to high school-level probability and statistics, before devolving into essentially pointless mathematical show-boating for another few hundred pages.
Then it finishes off with an interesting but not really relevant and highly unrigorous not to mention typo-ridden Holy balls this book has a lot of pages. Then it finishes off with an interesting but not really relevant and highly unrigorous not to mention typo-ridden overview of Google's various products mostly PageRank and Google Translate.
There's a few more chapters after that, but I think it's best to pretend they don't exist. Chapter 26 Philosophical Foundations , in particular, was a fucking embarrassment, giving more unnecessary to idiots like John Searle and Ray Kurzweil, and wasting paper on absurd hand-wringing over off-the-wall science-fiction scenarios.
AI is too legitimate and interesting a field to justify that sort of crap in a university textbook. In spite of all that, though, it's still a very good book, and a good overview of the field.
I particularly liked that each chapter had an extensive section with historical and biographical notes at the end. If nothing else, it at least demonstrates that if the AI winter was ever a real thing at least in terms of research activity and progress , it's far behind us now.
Artificial Intelligence is, in the context of the infant science of computing, a very old and very broad subdiscipline, the "Turing test" having arisen, not only at the same time, but from the same person as many of the foundations of computing itself. Those of us students of a certain age will recall terms like "symbolic" vs.
