: a practical introduction to AI (published 1989) is the title of the book i just finished (while installing Whidbey earlier). its another good book that gives an outline of the different AI techniques. it points out why one process might be chosen over another, due to advantages or disadvantages. it also does a good job of comparing and contrasting a school of thought to how it is believed humans actually think. the only negative of this book is that the code examples were in POP-11. anybody know if POP-11 has a .NET compiler? (i'm not serious) the code for each chapter builds upon previous chapters to ultimately produce an automated tour guide app. the project was well chosen to demonstate the different ideas.
