Marvin Minsky on Attention - Dictionary of Arguments

I 224
Attention/Artificial Intelligence/Minsky: When several objects move at once, it's hard to keep track of them all. We're forced to focus on a few while losing track of all the rest. What causes these phenomena? I'll argue that they're aspects of the processes we use to control our short-term memories.
Machines: The ability to focus attention could start with some machinery for keeping track of simple polynemes for object-things. In later stages, an IT could represent more complex processes or scripts that keep track of entire Trans-actions with their various pronomes for Objects, Origins, Destinations, Obstacles, Trajectories, and Purposes. >Terminology/Minsky, Trans-frames/Minsky.
