Description of this Book

The third edition of this bestseller examines the principles of artificial intelligence and their application to engineering and science, as well as techniques for developing intelligent systems to solve practical problems. Covering the full spectrum of intelligent systems techniques, it incorporates knowledge-based systems, computational intelligence, and their hybrids. Using clear and concise language, Intelligent Systems for Engineers and Scientists, Third Edition features updates and improvements throughout all chapters. It includes expanded and separated chapters on genetic algorithms and single-candidate optimization techniques, while the chapter on neural networks now covers spiking networks and a range of recurrent networks. The book also provides extended coverage of fuzzy logic, including type-2 and fuzzy control systems. Example programs using rules and uncertainty are presented in an industry-standard format, so that you can run them yourself. The first part of the book describes key techniques of artificial intelligence-including rule-based systems, Bayesian updating, certainty theory, fuzzy logic (types 1 and 2), frames, objects, agents, symbolic learning, case-based reasoning, genetic algorithms, optimization algorithms, neural networks, hybrids, and the Lisp and Prolog languages. The second part describes a wide range of practical applications in interpretation and diagnosis, design and selection, planning, and control. The author provides sufficient detail to help you develop your own intelligent systems for real applications. Whether you are building intelligent systems or you simply want to know more about them, this book provides you with detailed and up-to-date guidance.

Author's Bio

Adrian Hopgood earned his BSc from the University of Bristol, PhD from the University of Oxford, and MBA from the Open University. After completing his PhD in 1984, he spent 2 years developing applied intelligent systems for Systems Designers PLC. That experience set the direction of his career toward the investigation of intelligent systems and their practical applications. After leaving Systems Designers, he spent 14 years at the Open University and remains attached as a visiting professor. During that period, he also spent 2 years at Telstra Research Laboratories in Australia, investigating the role of intelligent systems in telecommunications. He has subsequently worked for Nottingham Trent University, De Montfort University, and Sheffield Hallam University. Despite assuming senior management positions, he has not lost his passion for intelligent systems. He has recently led the development of an open-source blackboard system, DARBS.
