I am currently reading "Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach". Though the terminology factored, structured and atomic representation is confusing what do these mean exactly?

In relation to programming...

Let me first explain to you about the agent because all the terms that you are asking are related to it. 

An agent is a thing that can be viewed as:

– perceiving its environment through sensors and

– acting upon that environment through actuators.

Agent’s organization

a) Atomic Representation: In this representation, each state of the world is a black box that has no internal structure. E.g., finding each state is a city. AI algorithms: search, games, Markov decision processes, hidden Markov models, etc.

b) Factored Representation: In this representation, each state has some attribute value properties. E.g., GPS location, amount of gas in the tank. AI algorithms: constraint satisfaction, and Bayesian networks.

c) Structured Representation: Relationships between the objects of a state can be explicitly expressed. AI algorithms: first-order logic, knowledge-based learning, natural language understanding.
