Marvin Minsky QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A major problem with AI research then was that Ph.D. dissertations were huge programs, and only the writer knew how they worked.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Around 1967 Dan Bobrow wrote a program to do algebra problems based on symbols rather than numbers.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
By the way, it was his simulations that helped out in Jurassic Park - without them, there would have been only a few dinosaurs. Based on his techniques, Industrial Light and Magic could make whole herds of dinosaurs race across the screen.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
For the real systems, you never knew if it worked or if it didn't work because a cloud went over the window and changed the lighting.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
I believed in realism, as summarized by John McCarthy's comment to the effect that if we worked really hard, we'd have an intelligent system in from four to four hundred years.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
I heard that the same thing occurred in a scene in Alien, where the creature pops out of the chest of a crewman. The other actors didn't know what was to happen; the director wanted to get true surprise.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
I remember sitting with Carl Sagan at the Boston opening of 2001 and thinking that it was the most awesome film I'd ever seen.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
I think a key to AI is the need for several representations of the knowledge, such that when the system is stuck (using one representation) it can jump to use another.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
I think Lenat is headed in the right direction, but someone needs to include a knowledge base about learning.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
If you just have a single problem to solve, then fine, go ahead and use a neural network. But if you want to do science and understand how to choose architectures, or how to go to a new problem, you have to understand what different architectures can and cannot do.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
In general we are least aware of what our minds do best.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Kubrick's vision seemed to be that humans are doomed, whereas Clarke's is that humans are moving on to a better stage of evolution.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
No computer has ever been designed that is ever aware of what it's doing; but most of the time, we aren't either.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Once when I was standing at the base, they started rotating the set and a big, heavy wrench fell down from the 12 o'clock position of the set, and got buried in the ground a few feet from me. I could have been killed!
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Societies need rules that make no sense for individuals. For example, it makes no difference whether a single car drives on the left or on the right. But it makes all the difference when there are many cars!
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Stanley Kubrick knew we had good graphics around MIT and came to my lab to find out how to do it. We had some really good stuff. I was very impressed with Kubrick; he knew all the graphics work I had ever heard of, and probably more.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
The basic idea in case-based, or CBR, is that the program has stored problems and solutions. Then, when a new problem comes up, the program tries to find a similar problem in its database by finding analogous aspects between the problems.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
There are three basic approaches to AI: Case-based, rule-based, and connectionist reasoning.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
There was a failure to recognize the deep problems in AI; for instance, those captured in Blocks World. The people building physical robots learned nothing.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
There was great effort expended building real walking machines, but we learned much more from pure simulations.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
This is a tricky domain because, unlike simple arithmetic, to solve a calculus problem - and in particular to perform integration - you have to be smart about which integration technique should be used: integration by partial fractions, integration by parts, and so on.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
We wanted to solve robot problems and needed some vision, action, reasoning, planning, and so forth. We even used some structural learning, such as was being explored by Patrick Winston.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
Well, we were trying to make intelligent machines. There were lots of good students working on interesting and important problems.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
When David Marr at MIT moved into computer vision, he generated a lot of excitement, but he hit up against the problem of knowledge representation; he had no good representations for knowledge in his vision systems.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
When Mark Rayburn realized that, and went into simulations of walking machines, then we started making progress.
Quotation of Marvin Minsky
You don't understand anything until you learn it more than one way.
