Chris Anderson on Robots - Dictionary of Arguments

Brockman I 145
Robots/Artificial intelligence/Anderson, Chris: Mosquitoes are closer to plants that follow the sun than to guided missiles. Yet by applying this simple “follow your nose” rule quite literally, they can
travel through a house to find you, slip through cracks in a screen door(…) It’s just a random walk, combined with flexible wings and legs that let the insect bounce off obstacles and an instinct to descend a chemical gradient.
(…) “gradient descent» is much more than bug navigation. Look around you and you’ll find it everywhere, from the most basic physical ruies of the universe to the most advanced artificial intelligence. >Universe/Anderson, >Artificial intelligence/Anderson, >Local minimum/Anderson.

Anderson, Chris “Gradient Descent” in: Brockman, John (ed.) 2019. Twenty-Five Ways of Looking at AI. New York: Penguin Press.
