Society of Mind

Society of Mind
By Marvin Minsky

Title available in paperback?:Yes
Pages: 336


Description of book: Minsky is an Artificial Intelligence researcher and theorist. By explaining what he understands will be needed for AI, he necessarily theorizes about how our mind really works. I just found out about this book and have not read it yet, but plan to do so asap. There are good reviews on Amazon, including mini-chapter reviews. One reviewer said "It makes you think about the process of thought."
