Marvin Minsky on Human Level AI - Dictionary of Arguments
Norvig I 27
Human Level artificial intelligence/artificial general Intelligence/Minsky/Norvig/Russell: Despite these successes, some influential founders of AI, including John McCarthy (2007)(1), Marvin Minsky (2007)(2), Nils Nilsson (1995(3), 2005(4)) and Patrick Winston (Beal and Winston, 2009)(5), have expressed discontent with the progress of AI. They think that AI should put less emphasis on creating ever-improved versions of applications that are good at a specific task, such as driving a car, playing chess, or recognizing speech.
Instead, they believe AI should return to its roots of striving for, in Simon’s words, “machines that think, that learn and that create.” They call the effort human-level AI or HLAI; their first symposium was in 2004 (Minsky et al., 2004)(6). The effort will require very large knowledge bases; Hendler et al. (1995)(7) discuss where these knowledge bases might come from. >Artificial general intelligence/Norvig.
