5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Paradigms of AI Programming is the first text to teach advanced Common Lisp techniques in the context of building major AI systems.

By reconstructing authentic, complex AI programs using state-of-the-art Common Lisp, the book teaches students and professionals how to build and debug robust practical programs, while demonstrating superior programming style and important AI concepts.

The author strongly emphasizes the practical performance issues involved in writing real working programs of significant size. Chapters on troubleshooting and efficiency are included, along with a discussion of the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and a description of the main CLOS functions.

This volume is an excellent text for a course on AI programming, a useful supplement for general AI courses and an indispensable reference for the professional programmer.

Review by

A gem. Half the book teaches the Common Lisp programming language from elements through optimization, and most importantly, teaches how to think in Common Lisp.The other half of the book recreates several classic AI programs, covering the theory and presenting complete implementations. The sections on Natural Language Processing go right up to the state of the art at the time of publication (Norvig worked on the Verbmobil project.)
