Chris Anderson on Local Minimum - Dictionary of Arguments

Brockman I 147
Local minimum problem/local maximum/fitness landscape/Chris Anderson: The limits of gradient descent constitute the so-called local-minima problem (or local-maxima problem, if you’re doing a gradient ascent). >Fitness landscape. (>Local minimum).
Solution/Anderson: (…) you either need a mental model (i.e., a map) of the topology, so you know where to ascend to get out of the valley, or you need to switch between gradient descent and random walks so you can bounce your way out of the region. >Robots/Anderson, >Artificial intelligence/Anderson, >Universe/Anderson, >Fitness landscape.
