Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 31)


Observation is the ultimate basis for our understanding of the world around us. But observation alone only gives information about particular events; it provides little help for dealing with new situations. Our ability and aptitude to recognize similarities in different events, to distil the important factors for a specific purpose, and to generalize our experience enables us to operate effectively in new environments. The result of this skill is knowledge, an essential resource for any intelligent agent.
