Knowledge Representation Logical, Philosophical, and Computational Foundations

£39.99

Product description

Hardback published by Brooks/Cole, a division of Thomson Learning. First edition, 2000.

"A visionary in the field of knowledge representation, John Sowa captures the current state of the art while introducing influential new ideas, such as his own concept of “frames” for representing knowledge―widely accepted by professionals and academics.

"This definitive new text offers broad and original coverage of the foundations of knowledge representation. Sowa, the recognized authority in his field, integrates logic, philosophy, linguistics and computer science into this study of knowledge and its translation to a computable form. The book emphasizes the logical principles that underlie the diverse techniques and notations of artificial intelligence, database design, and object-oriented programming.

"Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, Sowa includes a great deal of information on philosophy and linguistics. Each new idea is defined when first mentioned, and all the formalism is developed in the body of the text or summarized in an appendix."

Hardback with dust jacket. Like new except for a crease to the inside front flap of dust jacket.
