Simple may be beautiful. But it's hard.
am 15. Mai 2000
Who said simple is beautiful? Beautiful as it may seem, the simple is often deceptive. Like the famous Maxwell's equations in differntial form. They look beautifully simple. But to apply it requires another not very simple form. Minsky tells us that what seem simple enough to us (so simple that we are hardly aware of) are actually very hard to implement in machines. So the biggest question in artificial intelligence is to simulate simple human tasks. Minsky is not like some lousy popular textbook writers. He seeks to find an answer, and all along, he does not attempt to make a logical 'jump'. The book is full of ideas. Though not with any big promises or big future plan, it gives you practical insights (such as why 'agents' should be simple enough, when the 'agencies' are not. Highly recommended to those who want to see the practical side of artificial intelligence. Like the integral form of Maxwell's equations.
