Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

  • Henry R. Bungay
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 305)


A brief overview of artificial intelligence is supplemented with exercises using a commercial neural network shell. The problems are classification of microorganisms and characterization of flow in tanks.
