Intelligent Systems: Architectures, Design, Control



A Meystel, James S. Albus


This book addresses the theoretical foundations for the design of intelligent systems. It presents an approach based on loops of interacting components arranged in a multiresolutional hierarchy of layers. It proposes computational processes of focusing attention, combinatorial search, and grouping. These are arranged in an architecture that includes sensory processing, world modeling, value judgment, and behavior generation. The book emphasizes the issues of planning and learning and provides a number of examples of systems that have been implemented using this methodology. The book is written at a level that is appropriate for advanced graduate students and researchers interested in the mathematical, logical, and semiotic foundations of intelligent systems.
