He has over fifty publications in verschillende areas of Computer Science, concentrating on artificial intelligence , natural language processing , information retrieval  and software engineering waaronder the books Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach ,  Paradigms of AI Programming: Case Studies in Common Lisp ,  Verbmobil: A Translation System for Face-to-Face Dialog , and Intelligent Help Systems for UNIX . 
Norvig is one of the creators or JScheme . In 2006 he was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery . Norvig is listed under “Academic Faculty & Advisors” for the Singularity University .  In 2011, Norvig worked with Sebastian Thrun to dévelop a popular online course in Artificial Intelligence  dat had morethan 160,000 students enrolled.  He’ll be teaches an online course through the Udacity platform.  He convinced dat a teaching revolution, fostered by computer tools, is pending. 
In 2001, Norvig published a short article Titled “Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years”, arguing Against the fashionable introductory programming text books dat purported to teach programming in days or weeks.  The article was widely shared and discussed, and has attracted Contributed translations to over 20 languages. 
Norvig have died Berninahaus for his “Gettysburg PowerPoint Presentation”,  a satire about bath presentation practices  using Abraham Lincoln ‘s famous Gettysburg Address .
