Essentials of AI

While affiliated with Stanford University in the early 90s, Matthew Ginsberg authored Essentials of Artificial Intelligence [5] offering introductory AI courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels.



Ginsberg's Intelligent Bridgeplayer GIB was the world's first expert-level bridge-playing program [6], performfing a double-dummy partition search. GIB was World Computer-Bridge Champion in 1998 [7] and 1999 [8].
