This best-selling guide to Prolog and Artificial Intelligence, which has been updated to include key developments in the field, concentrates on the art of using the basic mechanisms of Prolog to solve interesting AI problems. The fourth edition of this best-selling guide to Prolog and Artificial Intelligence has been updated to include key developments in the field while retaining its lucid approach to these topics.

Divided into two parts, the flr part of the book introduces the programming language Prolog, while the second part teaches Artificial Intelligence using Prolog as a tool for the implementation of AI techniques. Prolog has its roots in logic; however the main aim of this book is to teach Prolog as a practical programming tool. This text therefore concentrates on the art of using the basic mechanisms of Prolog to solve interesting problems.

The fourth edition has been fully revised intwlligence extended to provide an even greater range of applications, which further enhance its value as a self-contained guide to Prolog, AI or AI Programming for students and professional programmers alike. Lecturers visiting the website have access to PowerPoint slides. He has taught Prolog worldwide, as well as applied Prolog in medical expert systems, robot programming, qualitative modelling and computer chess research.

He arhificial taught Prolog world-wide as well as applying Prolog in medical expert systems, robot programming, qualitative modelling and computer chess research.

Prolog Programming for Artificial Intelligence – Ivan Bratko – Google Books

The “declarative style” of programming is very different from the other 3 paradigms of programming. The other three are procedural, object oriented, and functional. I am afraid it make take more than one reading to understand Prolog. Having just read a book on automated reasoning which covered topics in logic, such as unification and resolution, I was very pleased with the prolog programming language, in that it takes concepts from logic, and uses them in ways that can be applied to a number of interesting areas of AI, such as NLP, planning, and expert systems.

I thought Bratko succeeded in making this connection with logic, without burdening the reader with notation and concepts that are really not needed for writing or understanding prolog programs. The book also worked for me on the level of providing a good introduction to the syntax and sematics of the language. The first pages succeed to this end. Finally, the last 13 chapters can be summarized as representing an introduction to AI from a prolog perspective. On the positive side, he shows how to apply prolog to all of the modern, main streams of AI study.

However, on the negative, the slant towards prolog in these chapters tends to oversimplify these disciplines. My impression of the language is that it seems good as a prototying language, since it is declarative in nature, but from my experimentation using SWI Prolog I think I could write better implementations using c or java.

In closing, Bratko’s book represents a very good place to start learning prolog and the world of AI. A new edition will be out soon, in For example, chapter 19 is an introduction to inductive learning in first-order logic, an advanced topic rarely found in introductory books.

The example program HYPER is a very powerful learner as compared to other “propositional” machine learning methods such as decision trees, neural networks, or support vector machines.

Prolog is not a very popular language nowadays, but basic knowledge of it is still essential to learning logic-based AI. Professor Bratko has done a tremendous job of putting all the fundamental concepts of Prolog and its applications in various areas of AI. Although this book is focused on Prolog, the concepts that he has discussed are so fundamental that they can be implemented in other languages like Java as well. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to learn Prolog.


Though I have just started this book, I can tell that it is going to be amazing. I have been trying to find a good introduction to Prolog for some time now, and this is exactly what I had been looking for.

PROLOG: Programming for Artificial Intelligence by Ivan Bratko

Clear presentation, beautiful and complete editing work, easy to understand, and comprehensive. If you do want to use this book for A. However, if you can manage to slug through it it is rather huge at iintelligenceI think that anyone interested in A.

Overall, I am excited to work through this book, and I will probably update my review once I have done so.

This is an essential book for Prolog programming, excellent! A loving fourth edition from Ivan Bratko. For a review of both Prolog and AI-based algorithms, this is the book to read! WE used Turbo Prolog and if you can find a copy, I’d recommend it.

I’ve read reviews of this book that state Dr. BRatko is talking to peers or himself.

I can’t udnerstand it. And re-reading it, it still is. I plan to use the AI half of the book when writing my master’s thesis next year. First page provides link to web resource page where Prolog code should be available.

Unfortunately, if you go there, there is message that “companion web page not available yet” and the only available one is for 3rd edition. Otherwise, great Prolog application book, however here and there pretty shallow, such as chapter on CLP. One person found this helpful. See all 19 reviews.
