Perspectives in Artificial Intelligence: Intelligence as Adaptive Behaviour v. 6
The "intelligence" of traditonal artificial intelligence systems is notoriously narrow and inflexible-incapable of adapting t the constantly changing circumstances of the real world. Although traditional artificial intelligence systems can be successful in narrowly prescribed domains,they are inappropriate for dynamic,complex domains such as autonomous robot navigation. This book proposes an alternative methodology for designing intelligent systems based on a model of intelligence as adaptive behavior. The author describes an experiment demonstrates that simple, complete intelligent agents are able to cope with complex, dynamic environments-s?ggesting that adaptive models of intelligence,based on biological bases of adaptive behavior,may prove to be very useful in the design of intelligent, autonomous systems.
