Dictionary definitionsof intelligence talk about “the capacityto acquireand applyknowledge” or “the faculty of thoughtandreason”or “the ability to comprehendandprofit from experience.” Theseareall reasonableanswers,but if we want somethingquantifiablewe would usesomethinglike “the ability to apply knowledgein ordertoperformbetterin anenvironment.”b. We defineartificial intelligenceasthestudyandconstructionof agentprogramsthatperformwell in agivenenvironment,for agivenagentarchitecture.c. We defineanagentasanentity that takesactionin responseto perceptsfrom anenvi-ronment.1.2 Seethesolutionfor exercise26.1for somediscussionof potentialobjections.Theprobabilityof fooling aninterrogatordependson just how unskilledtheinterroga-tor is. Oneentrantin the2002Loebnerprizecompetition(which is not quite a real TuringTest)did fool one judge,althoughif you look at the transcript,it is hard to imaginewhatthat judgewasthinking. Therecertainlyhave beenexamplesof a chatbotor otheronlineagentfooling humans. For example,seeSeeLenny Foner’s accountof the Julia chatbotat foner.www.media.mit.edu/people/foner/Julia/. We’d say the chancetoday is somethinglike 10%,with the variationdependingmoreon theskill of the interrogatorratherthantheprogram.In 50 years,we expectthattheentertainmentindustry(movies,videogames,com-mercials)will have madesufficient investmentsin artificial actorsto createvery credibleimpersonators.1.3 The2002Loebnerprize(www.loebner.net)went to Kevin Copple’s programELLA .

It alsohasa large databaseof text andhasthe Wordnetonline dictionary. It isthereforeusingratherrudimentarytools,andis not advancingthetheoryof AI.

Introductionstructure,perhapswith theaid of backgroundknowledge. AI systemsshouldattemptto dothesame.1.5 No. IQ testscorescorrelatewell with certainothermeasures,suchassuccessin college,but only if they’re measuringfairly normalhumans.TheIQ testdoesn’t measureeverything.A programthat is specializedonly for IQ tests(andspecializedfurtheronly for theanalogypart)would very likely performpoorly on othermeasuresof intelligence.SeeTheMismea-sure of Man by StephenJayGould, Norton, 1981or Multiple intelligences: the theory inpracticeby HowardGardner, BasicBooks,1993for moreon IQ tests,what they measure,andwhatotheraspectsthereareto “intelligence.”1.6 Justasyou areunawareof all the stepsthat go into makingyour heartbeat,you arealsounawareof mostof whathappensin your thoughts.You do have aconsciousawarenessof someof your thoughtprocesses,but themajority remainsopaqueto your consciousness.Thefield of psychoanalysisis basedon the ideathat oneneedstrainedprofessionalhelp toanalyzeone’s own thoughts.1.7a. (ping-pong)A reasonablelevel of proficiency wasachievedby Andersson’s robot(An-dersson,1988).b. (driving in Cairo)No. Althoughtherehasbeena lot of progressin automateddriving,all suchsystemscurrently rely on certainrelatively constantclues: that the roadhasshouldersanda centerline, thatthecaraheadwill travel a predictablecourse,thatcarswill keepto their sideof theroad,andsoon. To ourknowledge,noneareableto avoidobstaclesor othercarsor to changelanesasappropriate;theirskillsaremostlyconfinedto stayingin onelaneatconstantspeed.Driving in downtown Cairois toounpredictablefor any of theseto work.c.

Thecomponentpiecesarenearlyableto handletheindividual tasks,but it would take a major integra-tion effort to put it all together.d. (shoppingon the web) Yes.

(translation)Yes. In a limited way, this is alreadybeingdone. SeeKay, Gawron andNorvig (1994)andWahlster(2000)for an overview of thefield of speechtranslation,andsomelimitationson thecurrentstateof theart.j . (surgery) Yes. Robotsareincreasinglybeingusedfor surgery, althoughalwaysunderthecommandof adoctor.1.8 Certainlyperceptionandmotorskills areimportant,andit is agoodthingthatthefieldsof vision androboticsexist (whetheror not you want to considerthempart of “core” AI).But given a percept,an agentstill hasthe taskof “deciding” (eitherby deliberationor byreaction)which action to take. This is just as true in the real world as in artificial micro-worldssuchaschess-playing.Socomputingtheappropriateactionwill remainacrucialpartof AI, regardlessof theperceptualandmotorsystemtowhichtheagentprogramis “attached.”On theotherhand,it is true thata concentrationon micro-worldshasled AI away from thereally interestingenvironments(seepage46).1.9 Evolution tendsto perpetuateorganisms(and combinationsand mutationsof organ-isms) that aresuccesfulenoughto reproduce.That is, evolution favors organismsthat canoptimizetheirperformancemeasureto at leastsurvive to theageof sexualmaturity, andthenbeableto win a mate.Rationalityjust meansoptimizingperformancemeasure,so this is inline with evolution.1.10 Yes, they are rational, becauseslower, deliberative actionswould tend to result inmoredamageto the hand. If “intelligent” means“applying knowledge” or “using thoughtandreasoning”thenit doesnot requireintelligenceto make a reflex action.1.11 Thisdependsonyourdefinitionof “intelligent” and“tell.” In onesensecomputersonlydo what theprogrammerscommandthemto do,but in anothersensewhat theprogrammersconsciouslytellsthecomputerto dooftenhasverylittle to dowith whatthecomputeractuallydoes. Anyonewho haswritten a programwith an ornerybug knows this, asdoesanyonewho haswritten a successfulmachinelearningprogram.So in onesenseSamuel“told” thecomputer“learn to play checkers betterthan I do, and thenplay that way,” but in anothersensehetold thecomputer“follow this learningalgorithm” andit learnedto play. Sowe’releft in thesituationwhereyoumayor maynotconsiderlearningto playcheckersto bessignof intelligence(or you maythink that learningto play in theright way requiresintelligence,but not in this way), andyou maythink the intelligenceresidesin theprogrammeror in thecomputer.1.12 Thepointof thisexerciseis to noticetheparallelwith thepreviousone.Whateveryoudecidedaboutwhethercomputerscouldbeintelligentin 1.9,youarecommittedto makingthehttp://librosysolucionarios.net4 Chapter 1. Introductionsameconclusionaboutanimals(includinghumans),unlessyourreasonsfor decidingwhethersomethingis intelligent take into accountthe mechanism(programmingvia genesversusprogrammingvia a humanprogrammer).Note thatSearlemakesthis appealto mechanismin his ChineseRoomargument(seeChapter26).1.13 Again, thechoiceyoumake in 1.11drivesyour answerto thisquestion.http://librosysolucionarios.netSolutionsfor Chapter2IntelligentAgents2.1 Thefollowing arejust someof themany possibledefinitionsthatcanbewritten:� Agent: an entity thatperceivesandacts;or, onethat canbe viewedasperceiving andacting.Essentiallyany objectqualifies;thekey point is theway theobjectimplementsan agentfunction. (Note: someauthorsrestrict the term to programsthat operateonbehalfof a human,or to programsthat cancausesomeor all of their codeto run onothermachineson anetwork, asin mobile agents.)������� ���������� Agentfunction: a functionthatspecifiestheagent’s actionin responseto everypossibleperceptsequence.� Agent program: that programwhich, combinedwith a machinearchitecture,imple-mentsan agentfunction. In our simpledesigns,the programtakesa new perceptoneachinvocationandreturnsanaction.� Rationality: a propertyof agentsthatchooseactionsthatmaximizetheir expectedutil-ity, giventheperceptsto date.� Autonomy: a propertyof agentswhosebehavior is determinedby their own experienceratherthansolelyby their initial programming.� Reflex agent: anagentwhoseactiondependsonly on thecurrentpercept.� Model-basedagent: an agentwhoseactionis derived directly from an internalmodelof thecurrentworld statethatis updatedover time.� Goal-basedagent: an agentthat selectsactionsthat it believeswill achieve explicitlyrepresentedgoals.� Utility-basedagent: an agentthat selectsactionsthat it believes will maximizetheexpectedutility of theoutcopmestate.� Learningagent: anagentwhosebehavior improvesover time basedon its experience.2.2 A performancemeasureis usedby an outsideobserver to evaluatehow successfulanagentis. It is a functionfrom historiesto arealnumber. A utility functionis usedby anagentit*elf to evaluatehow desirablestatesor historiesare. In our framework, theutility functionmaynotbethesameastheperformancemeasure;furthermore,anagentmayhavenoexplicitutility functionatall, whereasthereis alwaysaperformancemeasure.2.3 Although thesequestionsarevery simple,they hint at somevery fundamentalissues.Ouranswersarefor thesimpleagentdesignsfor staticenvironmentswherenothinghappens5http://librosysolucionarios.net6 Chapter 2. IntelligentAgentswhile the agentis deliberating;the issuesget even more interestingfor dynamicenviron-ments.a. Yes;take any agentprogramandinsertnull statementsthatdonotaffect theoutput.b. Yes; the agentfunction might specify that the agentprint ������� whenthe perceptis aTuring machineprogramthat halts,and��������� otherwise. (Note: in dynamicenviron-ments,for machinesof lessthaninfinite speed,therationalagentfunctionmaynot beimplementable;e.g.,theagentfunction thatalwaysplaysa winning move, if any, in agameof chess.)c. Yes;theagent’s behavior is fixedby thearchitectureandprogram.d. Thereare "! agentprograms,althoughmany of thesewill not run at all. (Note: Anygivenprogramcandevoteat most # bits to storage,so its internalstatecandistinguishamongonly "! pasthistories.Becausetheagentfunctionspecifiesactionsbasedonper-cepthistories,therewill bemany agentfunctionsthatcannotbeimplementedbecauseof lackof memoryin themachine.)2.4 Noticethatfor our simpleenvironmentalassumptionswe neednotworry aboutquanti-tative uncertainty.a. It sufficesto show thatfor all possibleactualenvironments(i.e.,all dirt distributionsandinitial locations),thisagentcleansthesquaresat leastasfastasany otheragent.This istriviallytruewhenthereis no dirt. Whenthereis dirt in theinitial locationandnoneintheotherlocation,theworld is cleanafteronestep;no agentcando better. Whenthereis nodirt in theinitial locationbut dirt in theother, theworld is cleanaftertwo steps;noagentcando better. Whenthereis dirt in both locations,theworld is cleanafter threesteps;noagentcandobetter. (Note: in general,theconditionstatedin thefirst sentenceof thisansweris muchstricterthannecessaryfor anagentto berational.)b. Theagentin (a) keepsmoving backwardsandforwardseven after theworld is clean.It is betterto do $&%('*) oncethe world is clean(the chaptersaysthis). Now, sincethe agent’s perceptdoesn’t saywhetherthe othersquareis clean,it would seemthatthe agentmusthave somememoryto saywhetherthe othersquarehasalreadybeencleaned. To make this argumentrigorousis more difficult—for example,could theagentarrangethingssothatit wouldonly bein acleanleft squarewhentheright squarewasalreadyclean? As a generalstrategy, an agentcan usethe environmentit*elf asa form of external memory—a commontechniquefor humanswho usethings like,+-�.�/0���01������2/-3appointmentcalendarsandknotsin handkerchiefs.In thisparticularcase,however, thatis not possible.Considerthereflex actionsfor 4 5&6879�����;:=< and 4 >?6879�����;:@< . If eitheroftheseis $&%('*) , thentheagentwill fail in thecasewherethat is the initial perceptbutthe othersquareis dirty; hence,neithercanbe $A%B'*) andthereforethe simplereflexagentis doomedto keepmoving. In general,theproblemwith reflex agentsis thattheyhave to do the samething in situationsthat look the same,even whenthe situationsareactuallyquite different. In the vacuumworld this is a big liability, becauseeveryinterior square(excepthome)looks either like a squarewith dirt or a squarewithoutdirt.http://librosysolucionarios.net7AgentType PerformanceMeasureEnvironment Actuators SensorsRobotsoccerplayerWinning game,goalsfor/againstField,ball, ownteam,otherteam,own bodyDevices(e.g.,legs)forlocomotionandkickingCamera,touchsensors,accelerometers,orientationsensors,wheel/jointencodersInternetbook-shoppingagentObtainre-quested/interestingbooks,minimizeexpenditureInternet Follow link,enter/submitdatain fields,displayto userWebpages,userrequestsAutonomousMarsroverTerrainexploredandreported,samplesgatheredandanalyzedLaunchvehicle,lander, MarsWheels/legs,samplecollectiondevice,analysisdevices,radiotransmitterCamera,touchsensors,accelerometers,orientationsensors,,wheel/jointencoders,radioreceiverMathematician’stheorem-provingassistantFigureS2.1 AgenttypesandtheirPEASdescriptions,for Ex. 2.5.c.

The agentcanconsistofa tablewith eightentries,indexed by percept,that specifiesanactionto take for eachpossiblestate.After theagentacts,theworld is updatedandthenext perceptwill telltheagentwhat to do next. For larger environments,constructinga tableis infeasible.Instead,theagentcould run oneof theoptimalsearchalgorithmsin Chapters3 and4andexecutethefirst stepof thesolutionsequence.Again,no internalstateis required,but it wouldhelpto beableto storethesolutionsequenceinsteadof recomputingit foreachnew percept.2.10http://librosysolucionarios.net9Figure S2.3 An environmentin which randommotion will take a long time to cover allthesquares.a.

An exampleis shown in FigureS2.3.Studentsmayalsowish to measureclean-uptimefor linearor squareenvironmentsof differentsizes,andcomparethoseto theefficientonlinesearchalgorithmsdescribedin Chapter4.d. A reflex agentwith statecanbuild a map(seeChapter4 for details).An onlinedepth-first exploration will reachevery statein time linear in the size of the environment;therefore,theagentcando muchbetterthanthesimplereflex agent.Thequestionof rationalbehavior in unknown environmentsisacomplex onebut it isworthencouragingstudentsto think aboutit. Weneedto have somenotionof thepriorhttp://librosysolucionarios.net10 Chapter 2. IntelligentAgentsprobaility distribution over the classof environments;call this the initial belief state.Any actionyields a new perceptthat canbe usedto updatethis distribution, movingtheagentto anew belief state.Oncetheenvironmentis completelyexplored,thebeliefstatecollapsesto a single possibleenvironment. Therefore,the problemof optimalexplorationcanbe viewedasa searchfor an optimalstrategy in thespaceof possiblebelief states.This is a well-defined,if horrendouslyintractable,problem. Chapter21discussessomecaseswhereoptimalexplorationis possible.Anotherconcreteexampleof explorationis theMinesweepercomputergame(seeExercise7.11). For very smallMinesweeperenvironments,optimal exploration is feasiblealthoughthebelief stateupdateis nontrivial to explain.2.11 Theproblemappearsat first to bevery similar; themaindifferenceis that insteadofusingthelocationperceptto build themap,theagenthasto “invent” its own locations(which,afterall, arejust nodesin a datastructurerepresentingthestatespacegraph).Whena bumpis detected,theagentassumesit remainsin thesamelocationandcanadda wall to its map.For grid environments,theagentcankeeptrackof its G�H96�IKJ locationandsocantell whenithasreturnedto anold state.In thegeneralcase,however, thereis no simpleway to tell if astateis new or old.2.12a. For areflex agent,thispresentsnoadditionalchallenge,becausetheagentwill continueto LF��M�N as long as the currentlocationremainsdirty. For an agentthat constructsasequentialplan, every LF��MON actionwould needto be replacedby “ L=�8MON until clean.”If the dirt sensorcanbe wrong on eachstep,thenthe agentmight want to wait for afew stepsto getamorereliablemeasurementbeforedecidingwhetherto LF��M�N or moveon to a new square. Obviously, thereis a trade-off becausewaiting too long meansthatdirt remainson thefloor (incurringa penalty),but actingimmediatelyriskseitherdirtying a cleansquareor ignoringa dirty square(if the sensoris wrong). A rationalagentmustalsocontinuetouring andcheckingthesquaresin caseit missedoneon aprevious tour (becauseof badsensorreadings).it is not immediatelyobvioushow thewaiting time at eachsquareshouldchangewith eachnew tour. Theseissuescanbeclarified by experimentation,which may suggesta generaltrend that canbe verifiedmathematically. This problemis a partially observableMarkov decisionprocess—seeChapter17. Suchproblemsarehard in general,but somespecialcasesmay yield tocarefulanalysis.b. In this case,theagentmustkeeptouring thesquaresindefinitely. Theprobability thata squareis dirty increasesmonotonicallywith thetime sinceit waslastcleaned,sotherationalstrategy is, roughlyspeaking,to repeatedlyexecutetheshortestpossibletourofall squares.(Wesay“roughly speaking”becausetherearecomplicationscausedby thefact that theshortesttour mayvisit somesquarestwice, dependingon thegeography.)Thisproblemis alsoapartially observableMarkov decisionprocess.http://librosysolucionarios.netSolutionsfor Chapter3SolvingProblemsby Searching3.1 A state is asituationthatanagentcanfind itself in. Wedistinguishtwo typesof states:world states(theactualconcretesituationsin therealworld) andrepresentationalstates(theabstractdescriptionsof therealworld thatareusedby theagentin deliberatingaboutwhattodo).A state spaceis a graphwhosenodesare the set of all states,and whoselinks areactionsthattransformonestateinto another.A search treeis a tree(a graphwith no undirectedloops)in which therootnodeis thestartstateandthesetof childrenfor eachnodeconsistsof thestatesreachableby takinganyaction.A search node is a nodein thesearchtree.A goal is astatethattheagentis trying to reach.An action is somethingthattheagentcanchooseto do.A successorfunction describedthe agent’s options: given a state,it returnsa setof(action,state)pairs,whereeachstateis thestatereachableby takingtheaction.Thebranching factor in a searchtreeis thenumberof actionsavailableto theagent.3.2 In goal formulation,we decidewhich aspectsof the world we are interestedin, andwhich canbe ignoredor abstractedaway. Thenin problemformulationwe decidehow tomanipulatetheimportantaspects(andignoretheothers).If wedid problemformulationfirstwewouldnot know whatto includeandwhatto leaveout. Thatsaid,it canhappenthatthereis a cycle of iterationsbetweengoal formulation,problemformulation,andproblemsolvinguntil onearrivesatasufficiently usefulandefficient solution.3.3 In Pythonwe have:#### successor_fn defined in terms of result and legal_actionsdef successor_fn(s) :return [(a, result(a, s)) for a in legal_actions(s )]#### legal_actions and result defined in terms of successor_fndef legal_actions(s ):return [a for (a, s) in successor_fn(s) ]def result(a, s):11http://librosysolucionarios.net12 Chapter 3.

For any otherconfigurationbesidesthegoal,whenever a tile with a greaternumberon it precedesa tile with a smallernumber,thetwo tilesaresaidto be inverted.Proposition: For agivenpuzzleconfiguration,let P denotethesumof thetotalnumberof inversionsandtherow numberof theemptysquare.Then G�PRQTSVU; WJ is invariantunderanylegal move. In otherwords,after a legal move an odd P remainsodd whereasan even Premainseven. Thereforethegoalstatein Figure3.4,with no inversionsandemptysquareinthefirst row, has PYX[Z , andcanonly bereachedfrom startingstateswith odd P , not fromstartingstateswith even P .Proof: First of all, sliding a tile horizontallychangesneitherthe total numberof in-versionsnor the row numberof the emptysquare. Thereforelet us considersliding a tilevertically.Let’s assume,for example,that the tile 5 is locateddirectly over the emptysquare.Sliding it down changestheparity of therow numberof theemptysquare.Now considerthetotal numberof inversions.Themoveonly affectsrelative positionsof tiles 5 , > , \ , and ] .If noneof the > , \ , ] causedaninversionrelative to 5 (i.e.,all threearelargerthan 5 ) thenafter sliding onegetsthree(an odd number)of additionalinversions. If oneof the threeissmallerthan 5 , thenbeforethemove > , \ , and ] contributeda singleinversion(relative to5 ) whereasafterthemove they’ ll becontributing two inversions- achangeof 1, alsoanoddnumber. Two additionalcasesobviously leadto thesameresult.Thusthechangein thesumP is alwayseven.This is preciselywhatwe have setout to show.Sobeforewe solve apuzzle,weshouldcomputethe P valueof thestartandgoalstateandmake surethey have thesameparity, otherwiseno solutionis possible.3.5 Theformulationputsonequeenpercolumn,with a new queenplacedonly in a squarethatis not attackedby any otherqueen.To simplify matters,we’ll first considerthe # –rooksproblem.Thefirst rook canbeplacedin any squarein column1, thesecondin any squareincolumn2 exceptthesamerow thatasthe rook in column1, andin generaltherewill be #_^elementsof thesearchspace.3.6 No, a finite statespacedoesnot always leadto a finite searchtree.

Of course,we can take advantageof already-solved positionswhen solving new positions,provided thosesolved positionsare descendantsof the newpositions.To ensurethatthis alwayshappens,we generatethefinal positionsfirst, thentheirpredecessors, andsoon.

Inparticular, it maybereasonableto derive randomizedstrategiesso that theopponentcannotanticipatewheretheball will go.6.15 The minimax algorithm for non-zero-sumgamesworks exactly as for multiplayergames,describedon p.165–6;that is, the evaluationfunction is a vectorof values,oneforeachplayer, andthebackupstepselectswhichever vectorhasthehighestvaluefor theplayerwhoseturn it is to move.

Thus,in (e), they feel that it is the combinationof SmokeandHeatthat leadsto Fire, andthusthereis no reasonwhy oneor the otheraloneshouldleadto fire. Similarly, in (g), they feel that thereis no necessarycausalrelationbetweenBigandDumb, so the sentenceshouldbe satisfiable,but not valid. However, this reasoningisincorrect,becauseimplication is not causation—implicationis just a kind of disjunction(inthesensethat B � ã is thesameas EJBjC�ã ).

The key distinctionbetweenanalogicaland sententialrepresentationsis that the analogicalrepresentationau-tomaticallygeneratesconsequencesthat canbe “read off ” whenever suitablepremisesareencoded.Whenyou get into the details,this distinction turns out to be quite hard to pindown—for example,what does“read off ” mean?—but it canbe justified by examiningthetime complexity of variousinferenceson the “virtual inferencemachine”provided by therepresentationsystem.a. Dependingon the scaleandtype of the map,symbolsin the map languagetypicallyincludecity andtown markers,roadsymbols(varioustypes),lighthouses,historicmon-uments,rivercourses,freeway intersections,etc.b. Explicit andimplicit sentences:thisdistinctionis alittle tricky, but thebasicideais thatwhenthemap-drawer plunksa symboldown in a particularplace,hesaysoneexplicitthing (e.g. thatCoit Tower is here),but theanalogicalstructureof themaprepresenta-tion meansthatmany implicit sentencescannow bederived. Explicit sentences:thereis amonumentcalledCoit Towerat this location;LombardStreetruns(approximately)east-west;SanFranciscoBay exists andhasthis shape.Implicit sentences:VanNessis longerthanNorth Willard; Fisherman’s Wharf is north of theMission District; theshortestdrivableroutefrom Coit Tower to Twin Peaksis thefollowing è"è"è .c.

Sentencesthat are easierto expressin the map language:any sentencethat can bewritten easily in English is not going to be a goodcandidatefor this question. Anylinguistic abstractionfrom thephysicalstructureof SanFrancisco(e.g. SanFranciscois on theendof a peninsulaat themouthof a bay)canprobablybeexpressedequallyeasily in the predicatecalculus,sincethat’s what it wasdesignedfor.

A sentenceis valid if it is true in every model.Anexistentiallyquantifiedsentenceis truein amodelif it holdsunderany extendedinterpretationin which its variablesareassignedto domainelements.Accordingto thestandardsemanticsof FOL asgiven in the chapter, every modelcontainsat leastonedomainelement,hence,for any model,thereis an extendedinterpretationin which H and I areassignedto thefirstdomainelement.In suchaninterpretation,HçX I is true.8.4 �vHb6�I H?X I stipulatesthat thereis exactly oneobject.

But how do you decidewhich is bestwhenonecoursehasabetterteacherandis expectedto beeasier, while analternative is moreinterestingandprovidesonemorecredit? Chapter16 usesutility theoryto addressthis. Ifyou canprovide a way of weighingtheseelementsagainsteachother, thenyou canchooseabestprogramof study;otherwiseyoucanonlyeliminatesomeprogramsasbeingworsethanothers,but can’t pick anabsolutebestone. Complexity is a furtherproblem:witha general-purposetheorem-prover it’s hardto do muchmorethanenumeratelegal programsandpickthebest.10.21 This exerciseand the following two are rathercomplex, perhapssuitablefor termprojects.At this point, we want to stronglyurge thatyou do assignsomeof theseexercises(or oneslike them) to give your studentsa feeling of what it is really like to do knowl-edgerepresentation.In general,studentsfind classificationhierarchieseasierthanotherrep-resentationtasks. A recenttwist is to compareone’s hierarchywith online onessuchasyahoo.com .10.22 This is themostinvolvedrepresentationproblem.It is suitablefor agroupprojectof2 or 3 studentsover thecourseof at least2 weeks.10.23 Normally onewould assign10.22in oneassignment,andthenwhenit is done,addthis exercise(posibly varying thequestions).That way, thestudentsseewhetherthey havemadesufficientgeneralizationsin their initial answer, andgetexperiencewith debuggingandmodifying aknowledgebase.10.24 In many AI andProlog textbooks,you will find it statedplainly that implicationssuffice for the implementationof inheritance.This is true in thelogical but not thepracticalsense.a. Herearethreerules,written in Prolog.We actuallywould needmany moreclausesontheright handsideto distinguishbetweendifferentmodels,differentoptions,etc.worth(X,575) :- year(X,1973), make(X,dodge), style(X,van).worth(X,27000) :- year(X,1994), make(X,lexus), style(X,sedan).worth(X,5000) :- year(X,1987), make(X,toyota), style(X,sedan).Tofind thevalueof JB,givenadatabasewith year(jb,1973) ,make(jb,dodge)andstyle(jb,van) wewouldcall thebackwardchainerwith thegoalworth(jb,D) ,andreadthevaluefor D.b. Thetime efficiency of this queryis û Æ�ôGÉ , whereôin this caseis the11,000entriesintheBlue Book. A semanticnetwork with inheritancewould allow us to follow a linkfrom JB to 1973-dodge-van , andfrom thereto follow theworth slot to find thedollarvaluein û Æ�Ê#É time.c. With forwardchaining,assoonaswe aretold thethreefactsaboutJB,we addthenewfact worth(jb,575) . Thenwhenwe get the queryworth(jb,D) , it is û Æ�Ê#É tofind the answer, assumingindexing on the predicateandfirst argument.

This is dueto thelargestatespace.A few planners,suchasPRODIGY (Fink andBlythe,1998)have usedbidirectionalsearch.b. Again, this is feasiblebut not popular.

Sothefirst thing we needis to decideon thepreconditionsandeffectsof thehigh-levelactions. For GetPermit, assumethe preconditionis owning land,andthe effect is having apermit for thatpieceof land. For HireBuilder, thepreconditionis having theability to pay,andtheeffect is having asignedcontractin hand.76http://librosysolucionarios.net77Onepossibledecompositionfor GetPermit is the three-stepsequenceGetPermitForm,FillOutForm, andGetFormApproved. Thereis a causallink with the conditionHaveFormbetweenthefirst two, andonewith theconditionHaveCompletedForm betweenthelasttwo.Finally, theGetFormApprovedstephastheeffectHavePermit. This is avalid decomposition.ForHireBuilder, supposewechoosethethree-stepsequenceInterviewBuilders, Choose-Builder, andSignContract. ThislaststephasthepreconditionAbleToPayandtheeffectHave-ContractInHand. Therearealsocausallinks betweenthesubsteps,but they don’t affect thecorrectnessof thedecomposition.12.4 Considertheproblemof building two adjacentwalls of thehouse.Mostly thesesub-plansareindependent,but they mustsharethestepof puttingupacommonpostat thecornerof the two walls. If that stepwasnot shared,we would endup with an extra post,andtwounattachedwalls.Notethattasksareoftendecomposedspecificallysoasto minimizetheamountof stepsharing. For example,onecould decomposethe housebuilding task into subtaskssuchas“walls” and“floors.” However, realcontractorsdon’t do it thatway. Insteadthey have“roughwalls” and“roughfloors” steps,followedby a “finishing” step.12.5 In the HTN view, thespaceof possibledecompositionsmay constrainthe allowablesolutions,eliminatingsomepossiblesequencesof primitive actions. For example,the de-compositionof the LAToNYRoundTrip actioncanstipulatethat theagentshouldgo to NewYork. In asimpleSTRIPSformulationwherethestartandgoalstatesarethesame,theemptyplan is a solution.

To calculatethe cumulative distribution of a discretevariable,we start from a vectorrepresentation:of the original distribution and a vector�of the samedimension.http://librosysolucionarios.net98 Chapter 14.

Now draw all thestraightlinescorrespondingto all possiblepolicies.Therewardof theoptimalpolicy asa functionof 9 is just themaxofall thesestraightlines. Thereforeit is a piecewise linear, convex functionof 9 . Hencethereis avery efficient way to find all theoptimalpolicy regions:� Forany two consecutivevaluesof 9 thathavedifferentoptimalpolicies,find theoptimalpolicy for themidpoint. Oncetwo consecutive valuesof 9 give thesamepolicy, thentheinterval betweenthetwo pointsmustbecoveredby thatpolicy.� Repeatthisuntil two pointsareknown for eachdistinctoptimalpolicy.� Suppose� 9 3 ¶ Á�? 3 ¶ ¡ and� 9 3 Õ Á�? 3 Õ ¡ arepointsfor policyÐ, and� 9(@ ¶ Á�? @ ¶ ¡ and� 9(@ Õ Á�? @ Õ ¡arethenext two points,for policy Ö . Clearly, we candraw straightlines throughthesepairsof pointsandfind their intersection.Thisdoesnotmean,however, thatthereis nootheroptimal policy for the interveningregion. We candeterminethis by calculatinghttp://librosysolucionarios.net117theoptimal policy for the intersectionpoint.

This is a very interestingtopic for classdiscussion,raising issuesofnaturevs. nurture,theindeterminacy of meaningandreference,andsoon. BasicreferencesincludeChomsky (1957)andQuine(1960).The first stepis to appreciatethe variety of knowledgethatgoesunderthe heading“language.” The infantmustlearnto recognizeandproducespeech,learnvocabulary, learngrammar, learnthesemanticandpragmaticinterpretationof aspeechact,andlearnstrategiesfor disambiguation,amongotherthings.Theperformanceelementsfor this (in humans)andtheir associatedlearningmechanismsareobviously very complex andasyet little is knownaboutthem.A naivemodelof thelearningenvironmentconsidersjusttheexchangeof speechsounds.In reality, the physicalcontext of eachutteranceis crucial: a child mustseethe context inwhich “watermelon”is utteredin order to learn to associate“watermelon”with watermel-ons. Thus,the environmentconsistsnot just of otherhumansbut alsothe physicalobjectsandeventsaboutwhich discoursetakesplace.Auditory sensorsdetectspeechsounds,whileother senses(primarily visual) provide information on the physicalcontext. The relevanteffectorsarethe speechorgansandthe motor capacitiesthat allow the infant to respondtospeechor thatelicit verbalfeedback.Theperformancestandardcouldsimplybetheinfant’sgeneralutility function,howeverthatis realized,sothattheinfantperformsreinforcementlearningto performandrespondtospeechactsso asto improve its well-being—forexample,by obtainingfood andattention.However, humans’built-in capacityfor mimicry suggeststhattheproductionof soundssim-ilar to thoseproducedby otherhumansis a goalin itself. Thechild (onceheor shelearnstodifferentiatesoundsandlearnaboutpointingor othermeansof indicatingsalientobjects)isalsoexposedto examplesof supervisedlearning:anadultsays“shoe”or “belly button” whileindicatingtheappropriateobject. Sosentencesproducedby adultsprovide labelledpositiveexamples,andtheresponseof adultsto theinfant’s speechactsprovidesfurtherclassificationfeedback.Mostly, it seemsthatadultsdonotcorrectthechild’s speech,sotherearevery few neg-ativeclassificationsof thechild’s attemptedsentences.This is significantbecauseearlyworkon languagelearning(suchasthework of Gold, 1967)concentratedjust on identifying thesetof stringsthataregrammatical,assumingaparticulargrammaticalformalism.If thereare123http://librosysolucionarios.net124 Chapter 18. Learningfrom Observationsonly positive examples,thenthereis nothingto rule out thegrammar̄nm _­ÜQ9'o N . Sometheorists(notablyChomsky andFodor)usedwhatthey call the“povertyof thestimulus”argu-mentto saythatthebasicuniversalgrammarof languagesmustbeinnate,becauseotherwise(given the lack of negative examples)therewould beno way thata child could learna lan-guage(undertheassumptionsof languagelearningaslearninga setof grammaticalstrings).Criticshavecalledthisthe“povertyof theimagination”argument—Ican’t think of alearningmechanismthatwould work, so it mustbe innate. Indeed,if we go to probabilisticcontextfreegrammars,thenit is possibleto learna languagewithoutnegative examples.18.2 Learningtennisis muchsimpler thanlearningto speak. The requisiteskills canbedividedinto movement,playingstrokes,andstrategy. Theenvironmentconsistsof thecourt,ball, opponent,andone’s own body. Therelevant sensorsarethevisualsystemandpropri-oception(the senseof forceson andpositionof one’s own body parts). The effectorsarethe musclesinvolved in moving to the ball andhitting the stroke. The learningprocessin-volvesboth supervisedlearningandreinforcementlearning. Supervisedlearningoccursinacquiringthepredictive transitionmodels,e.g.,wheretheopponentwill hit theball, wheretheball will land,andwhat trajectorytheball will have afterone’s own stroke (e.g.,if I hita half-volley this way, it goesinto the net, but if I hit it that way, it clearsthe net). Rein-forcementlearningoccurswhenpointsarewon andlost—this is particularlyimportantforstrategic aspectsof play suchasshotplacementandpositioning(e.g.,in 60% of the pointswhereI hit a lob in responseto a cross-courtshot, I endup losing the point). In the earlystages,reinforcementalsooccurswhenashotsucceedsin clearingthenetandlandingin theopponent’s court. Achieving this smallsuccessis itself a sequentialprocessinvolving manymotorcontrolcommands,andthereis no teacheravailableto tell the learner’s motorcortexwhichmotorcontrolcommandsto issue.18.3 This is a deceptively simplequestion,designedto point out the plethoraof “excep-tions” in real-world situationsand the way in which decisiontreescapturea hierarchyofexceptions.Onepossibletreeis shown in FigureS18.1.Onecan,of course,imaginemanymoreexceptions.Thequalificationproblem,definedoriginally for actionmodels,appliesafortiori to condition–actionrules.18.4 In standarddecisiontrees,attribute testsdivide examplesaccordingto the attributevalue. Thereforeany examplereachingthe secondtestalreadyhasa known value for theattribute andthesecondtestis redundant.In somedecisiontreesystems,however, all testsareBooleanevenif theattributesaremultivaluedor continuous.In this case,additionaltestsof theattributecanbeusedto checkdifferentvaluesor subdivide therangefurther(e.g.,firstcheckif p ý� , andthenif it is, checkif q©Ã½�1� ).18.5 The algorithmmay not returnthe “correct” tree,but it will returna treethat is logi-cally equivalent,assumingthat themethodfor generatingexampleseventuallygeneratesallpossiblecombinationsof input attributes.This is truebecauseany two decisiontreedefinedon thesamesetof attributesthatagreeon all possibleexamplesare,by definition, logicallyequivalent.Theactuallyform of thetreemaydiffer becausetherearemany differentwaystorepresentthesamefunction. (For example,with two attributes S and f wecanhaveonetreehttp://librosysolucionarios.net125No YesNo YesNo YesNorNorYessNorYessNo YesFrontOfQueue?IntersectionBlocked?CarAheadMoving?No YesNorYessNo YesCrossTraffic?Pedestrians?NorTurning?No RightLeftOncomingTraffic?tCyclist?uNo YesNoYessFigure S18.1 A decisiontreefor decidingwhetherto move forwardat a traffic intersec-tion, givena greenlight.with S at theroot andanotherwith f at theroot.)

Thepurposeof thisexerciseis togetthestudentthinkingaboutthepropertiesof naturallanguage.Thereis awide varietyof acceptableanswers.Hereareours:� Grammar and Syntax Java: formally definedin a referencebook. Grammaticalityiscrucial; ungrammaticalprogramsarenot accepted.English: unknown, never formallydefined,constantlychanging.Most communicationis madewith “ungrammatical”ut-terances.Thereis anotionof gradedacceptability:someutterancesarejudgedslightlyungrammaticalor a little odd,while othersareclearlyright or wrong.� SemanticsJava: thesemanticsof a programis formally definedby thelanguagespec-ification. More pragmatically, onecansay that the meaningof a particularprogramis the JVM codeemittedby the compiler. English: no formal semantics,meaningiscontext dependent.� Pragmatics and Context-DependenceJava: somesmall partsof a programare leftundefinedin the languagespecification,andaredependenton thecomputeron whichtheprogramis run. English:almosteverythingaboutanutteranceis dependenton thesituationof use.� Compositionality Java: almostall compositional.Themeaningof “A + B” is clearlyderived from themeaningof “A” andthemeaningof “B” in isolation. English: somecompositionalparts,but many non-compositionaldependencies.� Lexical Ambiguity Java: asymbolsuchas“Avg” canbelocally ambiguousasit mightrefer to a variable,a class,or a function. The ambiguitycanbe resolved simply bycheckingthe declaration;declarationsthereforefulfill in a very exact way the roleplayedby backgroundknowledgeandgrammaticalcontext in English. English:muchlexical ambiguity.� Syntactic Ambiguity Java: thesyntaxof the languageresolvesambiguity. For exam-ple, in “if (X) if (Y) A; elseB;” onemight think it is ambiguouswhetherthe “else”belongsto thefirst or second“if, ” but thelanguageis specifiedsothatit alwaysbelongsto thesecond.English:muchsyntacticambiguity.� ReferenceJava: thereis apronoun“this” to referto theobjecton which amethodwasinvoked. Otherthanthat,thereareno pronounsor othermeansof indexical reference;no “it,” no “that.” (Comparethis to stack-basedlanguagessuchasForth, wherethestackpointeroperatesasa sortof implicit “it.”) Thereis referenceby name,however.Note thatambiguitiesaredeterminedby scope—iftherearetwo or moredeclarationshttp://librosysolucionarios.net150 Chapter 22. Communicationof thevariable“X”, thenauseof X refersto theonein theinnermostscopesurroundingtheuse.English:many techniquesfor reference.� Background KnowledgeJava: noneneededto interpreta program,althougha local“context” is built up asdeclarationsareprocessed.English:muchneededto do disam-biguation.� Understanding Java: understandingaprogrammeanstranslatingit to JVM bytecode.English:understandinganutterancemeans(amongotherthings)respondingto it appro-priately;participatingin adialog(or choosingnotto participate,but having thepotentialability to do so).As a follow-up question,you might want to comparedifferentlanguages,for example:En-glish,Java,Morsecode,theSQL databasequerylanguage,thePostscriptdocumentdescrip-tion language,mathematics,etc.22.5 This exerciseis designedto clarify the relationbetweenquasi-logicalform and thefinal logical form.a. Yes. Without a quasi-logicalform it is hardto write rulesthat produce,for example,two differentscopesfor quantifiers.b. No. It justmakesambiguitiesandabstractionsmoreconcise.c. Yes.Youdon’t needto explicitly representapotentiallyexponentialnumberof disjunc-tions.d. Yesandno. Theform is moreconcise,andsoeasierto manipulate.On theotherhand,the quasi-logicalform doesn’t give you any cluesas to how to disambiguate.But ifyoudo have thoseclues,it is easyto eliminateawholefamily of logical formswithouthaving to explicitly expandthemout.22.6 Assumingthatí Þ is theinterpretationof “is,” andí È is theinterpretationof “it,” thenwe getthefollowing:a. It is awumpus:ÿ ßØßX� í Þ �.í È Á ô ÿ ] _ Æ y Ú Æ Þ � ]¡¿õr¡�� à Æ 9(Ým³Z� � ÛãÜ�] Á ß�¡b. Thewumpusis dead:ÿ ßØßX�©àáß Ð o � ô ÿ } ] _ Æ y Ú Æ Þ � ]¡¿õr¡Z� à Æ 9(Ým³Z� � ÛãÜQ] Á ß�¡c.

(This is the “is thesameas” sense.Thereareothers.)Theformulaÿ qÊ_ Æ y Ú Æ Þ � qi¡ is a reasonablesemanticsfor “It is a wumpus.” Theproblemis ifweusethatformula,thenwehavenowhereto gofor “It wasawumpus”—thereis noeventtowhich we canattachthetime information.Similarly, for “It wasn’t a wumpus,” we can’t useê ÿ qc_ Æ y Ú Æ Þ � qi¡ , nor couldwe useÿ q ê _ Æ y Ú Æ Þ � qS¡ . So it is bestto have anexpliciteventfor “is.”http://librosysolucionarios.net15122.7 This is a very difficult exercise—mostreadershave no ideahow to answertheques-tions (except perhapsto rememberthat “too few” is betterthan “too many”). This is thewholepoint of theexercise,aswe will seein exercise23.14.22.8 Thepurposeof this exerciseis to getsomeexperiencewith simplegrammars,andtoseehow context-sensitivegrammarsaremorecomplicatedthancontext-free.Oneapproachtowriting grammarsis to write down thestringsof thelanguagein anorderlyfashion,andthenseehow a progressionfrom onestring to thenext couldbecreatedby recursive applicationof rules.For example:a. The languageÐ ² Ö ² : Thestringsare � , Ð Ö , Ð�Ð Ö�Ö , . . . (where � indicatesthenull string).Eachmemberof this sequencecanbe derived from the previous by wrappinganÐatthestartanda Ö at theend.Thereforeagrammaris:¯ m �¯ m Ð�¯ Öb. Thepalindromelanguage:Let’s assumethealphabetis justÐ, Ö and Î . (In general,thesizeof thegrammarwill beproportionalto thesizeof thealphabet.Thereis no way towrite a context-freegrammarwithout specifyingthealphabet/lexicon.) Thestringsofthelanguageinclude � , a, b, c, aa,bb,cc,aaa,aba,aca,bab,bbb,bcb,. . . . In general,astringcanbeformedby bracketingany previousstringwith two copiesof any memberof thealphabet.Soa grammaris:¯ m �è Ð è Ö è Î è Ð�¯¼Ð è Ö ¯ Ö è Î ¯ Îc. The duplicatelanguage:For the moment,assumethat the alphabetis justÐ Ö . (It isstraightforward to extendto a largeralphabet.)Theduplicatelanguageconsistsof thestrings: � , Ð�Ð , Ö�Ö , Ð�Ð�Ð�Ð , Ð Ö Ð Ö , Ö�Ö�Ö�Ö , Ö Ð Ö Ð , . . .Notethatall stringsareof evenlength.Onestrategy for creatingstringsin this languageis this:� Start with markers for the front and middle of the string: we can usethe non-terminal \ for thefront and�for themiddle. Soat this point we have thestring\ � .� Generateitemsat the front of thestring: generateanÐfollowed by an S , or a Öfollowedby a f . Eventuallywe get,say, \ Ð S Ð SpÖ�f � . Thenwe no longerneedthe \ marker andcandeleteit, leavingÐ S Ð SFÖ�f � .� Move thenon-terminalsS and f down the line until just beforethe�.

The correspondingsingle-leg controller is essentiallythe sameas in Figure 25.22(b),but with addedwait-stepsforsynchronizationwith thecoordinatingAFSM. The low-level AFSM is replicatedsix times,oncefor eachleg.For showing that this controlleris stable,we show thatat leastoneleg groupis on thegroundat all times. If this conditionis fulfilled, therobot’s centerof gravity will alwaysbeabove theimaginarytriangledefinedby thethreelegson theground.Theconditionis easilyprovenby analyzingthetop level AFSM. Whenonegroupof legsin ¯ � (or on theway to ¯ �from ¯i³ ), theotheris eitherin ¯ Z or ¯n° , bothof whichareon theground.However, thisproofonly establishesthat therobotdoesnot fall over whenon flat ground;it makesno assertionsabouttherobot’s performanceon non-flatterrain.Our resultis alsorestrictedto staticstabil-ity, that is, it ignoresall dynamiceffectssuchasinertia.

Thedetails,of course,dependon your theoryof what is importantin thefunctionalandconsciousfunctioningof neuronsandthe brain; a theorythat is not well-developedsofar.26.4 This exercisedependson what happensto have beenpublishedlately. The NEWSand MAGS databases,available on many online library catalogsystems,can be searchedfor keywords suchas Penrose,Searle,ChineseRoom, Dreyfus, etc. We found about90reviews of Penrose’s books. Here are someexcerptsfrom a fairly typical one, by AdamSchulman(1995).RogerPenrose,thedistinguishedmathematicalphysicist,hasagainenteredthelists to ridtheworld of a terribledragon.Thenameof this dragonis ”strongartificial intelligence.”StrongAl, asits defenderscall it, is botha widely heldscientificthesisandanongoingtechnologicalprogram.Thethesisholdsthatthehumanmindis nothingbut afancy calcu-latingmachine-”-acomputermadeof meat”–andthatall thinking is merelycomputation;theprogramis to build fasterandmorepowerful computersthatwill eventuallybeabletodo everythingthehumanmind cando andmore.Penrosebelievesthat thethesisis falseandtheprogramunrealizable,andheis confidentthathecanprovetheseassertions.�i�i�In Part I of Shadowsof theMind Penrosemakeshis rigorouscasethathumanconscious-nesscannotbefully understoodin computationalterms.�i�å�How doesPenroseprovethatthereis moreto consciousnessthanmerecomputation?Most peoplewill alreadyfind itinherentlyimplausiblethatthediversefacultiesof humanconsciousness–self-awareness,understanding,willing, imagining,feeling–differ only in complexity from the workingsof, say, anIBM PC.Studentsshouldhave no problemfinding thingsin this andotherarticleswith which to dis-agree.Thecomp.ai Newsnetgroupis alsoagoodsourceof rashopinions.Dubiousclaimsalsoemerge from the interactionbetweenjournalists’desireto writeentertainingandcontroversialarticlesandacademics’desireto achieveprominenceandto beviewed asaheadof the curve. Here’s onetypical result— Is Nature’s Way TheBestWay?,Omni,February1995,p. 62:http://librosysolucionarios.net173Artificial intelligencehasbeenone of the leastsuccessfulresearchareasin computerscience. That’s becausein the past, researcherstried to apply conventionalcomputerprogrammingto abstracthumanproblems,suchas recognizingshapesor speakinginsentences.But researchersatMIT’ sMediaLabandBostonUniversity’sCenterfor Adap-tive Systemsfocuson applyingparadigmsof intelligencecloserto whatnaturedesignedfor humans,which includeevolution,feedback,andadaptation,areusedto producecom-puterprogramsthatcommunicateamongthemselvesandin turnlearnfrom theirmistakes.ProfilesIn Artificial Intelligence, DavidFreedman.This is not an argumentthat AI is impossible,just that it hasbeenunsuccessful.The fulltext of the article is not given, but it is implied that the argumentis that evolution workedfor humans,thereforeit is a betterapproachfor programsthan is “conventionalcomputerprogramming.” This is a commonargument,but onethat ignoresthe fact that (a) therearemany possiblesolutionsto a problem;onethathasworkedin thepastmaynot bethebestinthepresent(b) we don’t have a goodtheoryof evolution, sowe maynot beableto duplicatehumanevolution, (c) naturalevolution takes millions of yearsand for almostall animalsdoesnot resultin intelligence;thereis no guaranteethatartificial evolution will do better(d)artificial evolution (or geneticalgorithms,ALife, neuralnets,etc.) is not theonly approachthatinvolvesfeedback,adaptationandlearning.“Conventional”AI doesthisaswell.26.5 Thisalsomightmake agoodclassdiscussiontopic. Hereareourattempts:intelligence: a measureof theability of anagentto make theright decisions,giventheavailableevidence.Giventhesamecirc*mstances,a moreintelligentagentwill make betterdecisionson average.thinking : creatinginternalrepresentationsin serviceof thegoalof comingto aconclu-sion,makinga decision,or weighingevidence.consciousness: beingawareof one’s own existence,andof one’s currentinternalstate.Herearesomeobjections[with replies]:For intelligence, too much emphasisis put on decision-making. Haven’t you everknown a highly intelligent personwho madebaddecisions?Also no mentionis madeoflearning.Youcan’t beintelligentby usingbrute-forcelook-up,for example,couldyou?[Theemphasison decision-makingis only a liability whenyou areworkingat too coarsea gran-ularity (e.g., “What shouldI do with my life?”) Onceyou look at smaller-grain decisions(e.g.,“ShouldI answera,b, c or noneof theabove?),yougetat thekindsof thingstestedbycurrentIQ tests,while maintainingthe advantagesof the action-orientedapproachcoveredin Chapter1. As to thebrute-forceproblem,think of intelligencein termsof anecologicalniche:anagentonly needsto beasintelligentasis necessaryto besuccessful.If this canbeaccomplishedthroughsomesimplemechanism,fine. For thecomplex environmentsthatwehumansarefacedwith, morecomplex mechanismsareneeded.]For thinking , wehavethesameobjectionsaboutdecision-making,but in general,think-ing is theleastcontroversialof thethreeterms.For consciousness, the weaknessis thedefinition of “aware.” How doesonedemon-strateawareness?Also, it is not one’s true internalstatethat is important,but somekind ofabstractionor representationof someof thefeaturesof it.http://librosysolucionarios.net174 Chapter 26. PhilosophicalFoundations26.6 It ishardtogiveadefinitiveanswerto thisquestion,but it canprovokesomeinterestingessays.Many of thethreatsareactuallyproblemsof computertechnologyor industrialsocietyin general,with somecomponentsthat canbe magnifiedby AI—examplesincludelossofprivacy to surveillance,andtheconcentrationof power andwealthin thehandsof themostpowerful. As discussedin the text, the prospectof robotstaking over the world doesnotappearto beaseriousthreatin theforeseeablefuture.26.7 Biologicalandnucleartechnologiesprovidemushmoreimmediatethreatsof weapons,yieldedeitherby statesor by smallgroups.Nanotechnlogythreatensto producerapidly re-producingthreats,eitherasweaponsor accidently, but thefeasibilityof this technologyis stillquitehypothetical.As discussedin thetext andin thepreviousexercise,computertechnologysuchascentralizeddatabases,network-attachedcameras,andGPS-guidedweaponsseemtoposeamoreseriousportfolio of threatsthanAI technology, at leastasof today.26.8 To decideif AI is impossible,we mustfirst defineit. In this book, we’ve chosenadefinition that makes it easyto show it is possiblein theory—fora given architecture,wejust enumerateall programsandchoosethe best. In practice,this might still be infeasible,but recenthistoryshows steadyprogressat a wide varietyof tasks.Now if we defineAI astheproductionof agentsthatactindistinguishablyform (or at leastasintellgientlyas)humanbeingson any task,thenonewould have to saythatlittle progresshasbeenmade,andsome,suchasMarvin Minsky, bemoanthefactthatfew attemptsareevenbeingmade.Othersthinkit is quite appropriateto addresscomponenttasksratherthan the “whole agent”problem.Our feeling is that AI is neitherimpossiblenor a oomingthreat. But it would be perfectlyconsistentfor someoneto ffel thatAI is mostlikely doomedto failure,but still thattherisksof possiblesuccessaresogreatthatit shouldnotbepersuedfor fearof success.http://librosysolucionarios.netSolutionsfor Chapter27AI: PresentandFutureThereareno exercisesin this chapter.
