In 60 years Marvin Minsky, one of the founding fathers of artificial intelligence (AI), has made important contributions to the development of AI. In an interview with MIT Technology Review Minsky now 88 years old, gave his views about the development in the field of artificial intelligence. He claims that very little growth of new ideas within the field has appeared the past 10 years. Instead the focus has been on improving existing system. Minsky means that this is because the development is too much in the hands of big companies. He built the first learning machine in 1951 that was called SNARC. In 1959 he founded the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT with John McCarthy, a computer scientist. Minsky has made several key contributions in the field of using robots as a tool to model human perception and intelligence. Click here to see the interview by Will Knight.
