This book is the first in a series on Artificial Intelligence. It provides an introduction to the topic with an emphasis on the use of agent-oriented design. Topics include agents, environments, agent movement, and agent embodiment. It also provides an introduction to programming in NetLogo. Accompanying the book is a series of exercises and NetLogo models (with source code and documentation) which can be run directly from an applet or downloaded.
