Application Areas of AI Game Playing: Much of the early researches related to artificial intelligence was done using board games. Board games were ideal for AI because they had well-defined set of rules which helps researchers to build a search space easily. Also testing of these researches were easy and requires no financial support or does not have any ethical problem. The large search space of board games was complex enough to require some powerful techniques to determine alternatives. These techniques are called heuristics and is a major part of AI researches. Automated Reasoning and Theorem Proving Automated theorem proving is the oldest branch of artificial intelligence research. Search algorithms and formal representation languages like predicate calculus were developed after these kind of researches. Logic programing language PROLOG was also designed to solve this kind of problems. At the beginning problem descriptions and relevant background information was represented as logical
