Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI), a science fiction theme for hundreds of years, has been the object of scientific research for over four decades. With the recent development of faster, more powerful computer systems, AI applications are beginning to appear in various products for information management and retrieval. This important new field has its own particular methodologies and programming languages; library/information professionals hoping to understand and use AI products will need to learn more about them. This article briefly introduces the languages of AI and presents information on some of the new versions of these languages available for personal computers. A tutorial for PROLOG-86, a new microcomputer version of PROLOG, is given. Information on other microcomputer versions of these programs and an extensive bibliography are included.
