This forms the key hands-on text for the whole field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) - the experimental science whose goal is to understand the nature of intelligent thought and action. Although this goal is shared with a number of longer established subjects such as Philosophy, Psychology and Neuroscience, the essential difference is that AI scientists are committed to computational modelling as a methodology for explicating the interpretative processes which underlie intelligent behaviour, that relate sensing of the environment to action in it. Workers in the field have seen the digital computer as the best device available to support the many cycles of hypothesizing, modelling, simulating and testing involved in research into these interpretative processes, and set about the task of developing a programming technology that would enable the use of digital computers as an experimental tool. This the the workshop manual and the key toop PROLOG
