“The book is a good textbook for C S courses, as well as a helpful resource for people working in academia or industry. It will be beneficial in teaching the fundamental concepts of AI. … Along these lines, for people interested in learning the theory of AI, it is both a good textbook and valuable resource.” (Gulustan Dogan, Computing Reviews, December 30, 2020)

“It is very astonishing that hardly any curricula come back to Norbert Wiener’s cybernetics. His theory of systems will be the safe background for any new system to be developed. I wish the author still much success in this field, you can contribute a lot to the welfare of the human society.” (Christian Posthoff, zbMATH 1442.68001, 2020)
