Announcement: Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence

Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence
ISBN: 978-1-59904-849-9; 1777 pp; July 2008
Published under the imprint Information Science Reference (formerly Idea Group Reference)
Edited By: Juan Ramn Rabual Dopico, University of A Corua, Spain; Julian Dorado; Alejandro Pazos, University of A Corua, Spain
Numerous real-life problems so complex as to be virtually insoluble by means of traditional computer science techniques can now be approached effectively with artificial intelligence techniques. Recently, artificial intelligence technologies have evolved at a rapid pace, raising significant challenges to the effort to stay current.
The Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence is a comprehensive and in-depth reference to the most recent developments in the field covering theoretical developments, techniques, technologies, and applications of systems using intelligent characteristics for adaptability, automation learning, classification, prediction, and even artistic creation, among others. Authored by over 400 of the worlds leading experts from more than 40 countries, this commanding reference of 237 articles is essential to any research librarys technology holdings.
"This encyclopedia provides the latest, fundamental and properly validated knowledge for anyone, not necessarily a specialist in artificial intelligence (AI), to qualify as such. One sign of a good book is that it inspires others to write more and better things, and I am convinced that this encyclopedia will spawn an endless number of texts that will render it obsolete in no time. This will be its greatest glory."
