Originally published in 1992, this title reviews seven major subareas in artificial intelligence at that time: knowledge acquisition;
logic programming and representation; machine learning; natural language; vision; the design of an AI programming environment;
and medicine, a major application area of AI. This volume was an attempt primarily to inform fellow AI workers of recent European
work in AI. It was hoped that researchers in 'sister' disciplines, such as computer science and linguistics would gain a deeper
understanding of the assumptions, techniques and tools of contemporary AI.
