The fourth edition of this best-selling guide to Prolog and Artificial Intelligence has been updated to include key developments in the field while retaining its lucid approach to these topics. Divided into two parts, the first part of the book introduces the programming language Prolog, while the second part teaches Artificial Intelligence using Prolog as a tool for the implementation of AI techniques.
Prolog has its roots in logic; however the main aim of this book is to teach Prolog as a practical programming tool. This text therefore concentrates on the art of using the basic mechanisms of Prolog to solve interesting problems. The fourth edition has been fully revised and extended to provide an even greater range of applications, which further enhance its value as a self-contained guide to Prolog, AI or AI Programming for students and professional programmers alike.
· Combined approach to Prolog and AI allows flexibility for learning and teaching
· Provides a thorough representation of AI, emphasizing practical techniques and Prolog implementations
· Prolog programs in the book are available for download from the book's companion website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/bratko . Lecturers visiting the website have access to PowerPoint slides.
New for this edition:
· Coverage of constraint logic programming (CLP) is extended and now introduced earlier in the book, in the Prolog part
· Most of the existing chapters on AI techniques have been systematically improved and updated
· Coverage of planning methods is deepened in a new chapter that includes implementations of partial order planning and the GRAPHPLAN approach
· The treatment of search methods now includes an RTA* program (real-time A* search)
· The chapter on meta-programming (now chapter 25) is extended by the addition of sections on abductive reasoning, query-the-user interpreter, and a sketch of CLP interpreter, all implemented as Prolog meta-interpreters
· Programming examples are refreshed throughout the book, making them more interesting and practical. One such example introduces semantic reasoning with the well-known lexical database WordNet®

I teach programming in Prolog and Artificial Intelligence in a Mexican University.
This is an essential book for Prolog programming, excellent! Read more
Sorry, but I studied the famous MIT Prolog book back in the day, and I completed a significant Prolog project at university. I can still barely fight my way through this book. Read morePublished 7 months ago by SchmidtD
A little old now and not great for beginners. I'd only recommend this if you have read other books and are looking at the history of prolog development.Published 8 months ago by Peter Joyce
Though I have just started this book, I can tell that it is going to be amazing. I have been trying to find a good introduction to Prolog for some time now, and this is exactly... Read morePublished 19 months ago by Amazon Customer
First page provides link to web resource page where Prolog code should be available. Unfortunately, if you go there, there is message that "companion web page not available yet"... Read morePublished on March 19, 2012 by Amazon Customer
A new edition will be out soon, in 2010. This is an excellent book on Prolog *and* on AI.
For example, chapter 19 is an introduction to inductive learning in... Read more
