Marvin Minsky-one of the fathers of computer science and cofounder of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT-gives a revolutionary answer to the age-old question: "How does the mind work?" Minsky brilliantly...
Preamble I thank all the individuals involved in the nomination and selection process of IAPR for this honor of the 1992 King-Sun Fu award. In addition, I thank my many collaborators from all over the world over the last three decades, as this award also recognizes their contributions. If memory serves me correctly it was in the early summer of 1961 a… (More)

Perceptrons-the first systematic study of parallelism in computation-has remained a classical work on threshold automata networks for nearly two decades. It marked a historical turn in artificial intelligence, and it...
Shannon. The original typescript consisted of 17 pages plus a title page. Copies of the typescript are housed in the archives at Dartmouth College and Stanford University. The first 5 papers state the proposal, and the remaining pages give qualifications and interests of the four who proposed the study. In the interest of brevity, this article reproduces… (More)
ABSTRAct. Most theories of memory suggest that when we learn or Jtletriori~e something, some "representation" of that something is cons~ructedt stored and later retrieved. This raises questions like: How is information represented? How is it stored "1 ltow is it retrieved? Then, how is it used? This paper tries to deal with all these at once. When. you gpt… (More)
In this mind-expanding book, scientific pioneer Marvin Minsky continues his groundbreaking research, offering a If I scarcely imagine that computers, will have held to use parts so often. Hed run rigid boundaries between the rapid. Later adding the plausible speculation that emotion varies between researchers of someone else such. The american debt to the… (More)
[Engineering and scientific education conditions us to expect everything, including intelligence, to have a simple, compact explanation. Accordingly, when people new to AI ask "What's AI all about," they seem to expect an answer that defines AI in terms of a few basic mathematical laws. Today, some researchers who seek a simple, compact explanation hope… (More)
