Logic-based artificial intelligence by Jack Minker

By Jack Minker

This landmark quantity represents the end result of over forty years of study within the use of common sense as a foundation for representing and manipulating difficulties within the box of synthetic intelligence. The use of common sense as a foundation for common sense reasoning used to be began via John McCarthy in 1959. the gathering involves either unique learn and surveys of virtually each topic that makes use of common sense in AI, contributed by means of best scientists, and grew out of initial paintings awarded at the Workshop on Logic-Based synthetic Intelligence held in Washington, DC, June 1999. All papers were greatly refereed and revised. The introductory article offers historical past on study that has transpired when you consider that 1959 and discusses the importance of every bankruptcy during this context. the themes coated within the ebook are common sense reasoning, wisdom illustration, nonmonotonic reasoning, common sense for causation and activities, making plans and challenge fixing, cognitive robotics, good judgment for brokers and activities, inductive reasoning, possibilistic common sense, good judgment and ideology, good judgment and language, computational common sense, wisdom base procedure implementations, and functions of theorem proving and common sense programming. Logic-Based man made Intelligence is useful to graduate scholars and researchers in man made intelligence, and complex equipment for database and data base platforms. Logic-Based synthetic Intelligence may also be of curiosity to these employing theorem proving easy methods to difficulties in software and undefined verification, to those that take care of huge wisdom base structures, these constructing cognitive robotics, and for these attracted to the resolution of McCarthy's 1959 "oldest making plans challenge in AI: getting from domestic to the airport".

Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications

This publication is a hands-on creation to the foundations and perform of embedded procedure layout utilizing the PIC microcontroller. choked with priceless examples and illustrations, it provides an in-depth therapy of microcontroller layout, programming in either meeting language and C, and lines complicated issues corresponding to networking and real-time working platforms.

Logic and Language Models for Computer Science

This article makes in-depth explorations of a extensive variety of theoretical themes in machine technological know-how. It plunges into the purposes of the summary ideas on the way to confront and handle the skepticism of readers, and instill in them an appreciation for the usefulness of concept. A two-part presentation integrates common sense and formal language—both with purposes.

Example text

BASIC-52 treats upper and lower-case characters the same. In most cases, spaces are ignored, so you can include them or not as you wish. Running a Program Here is a very simple program to try: 10 20 30 40 FOR I=1 to 10 PRINT I NEXT I END Enter each of the lines, including the line numbers. BASIC-52 automatically stores the program in RAM. To run the program, type RUN. You should see this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 To view the program lines, type LIST The Microcontroller Idea Book 39 Chapter 3 To erase the current program, type NEW To verify that the program no longer exists, type LIST You can change individual program lines by typing the line number, followed by a new statement: 10 FOR I=1 to 20 To erase a line, type the line number and press ENTER: 20 Getting Out of Trouble Occasionally, a programming error may cause a program to go into an endless loop or crash the system.

Be sure all components are oriented correctly. When all checks out, you’re ready to boot up BASIC-52. Booting BASIC-52 For the initial check, begin with everything powered down. I’ll use the term host computer, or host system, to refer to the personal computer, and target computer, or target system, to refer to the 8052-BASIC circuits. Included are some specific tips for users of Datastorm’s The Microcontroller Idea Book 35 Chapter 3 Figure 3-6. BASIC-52’s sign-on message and a simple program, using the Windows Terminal accessory for communications.

Unlike ROM, the CPU can write to RAM as well as read it. Any information stored in RAM is lost when power is removed from the chip. The 8052 has 256 bytes of RAM. BASIC-52 uses much of this for its own operations, with a few bytes available to users. I/O Ports I/O (Input/Output) Ports enable the 8052 to read and write to external memory and other components. The 8052 has four 8-bit I/O ports (Ports 0-3). As the name suggests, the ports can act as inputs (to be read) or outputs (to be written to).
