I liked this book. What parts did you have in mind specifically as
being relevant to AI?

I like this idea. On the other thread [1] Ricardo Herrmann suggested
following the structure of "AI: A Modern Approach", the classical text
[2] by Russell and Norvig. Do others agree? I think we should carve
out a section of the wiki, in the Applications and Libraries section
[3] for AI, which should then be split into (at least) a section each
for relevant papers, code, interesting AI problems with their
solutions, and a table-of-contents type page, structured according to
a text like this. Comments?

Maybe we should assemble an AI strike force? :)
