Marvin Minsky and The Beginning of AI [Video Highlights]

Marvin Minsky – often referred to as “the father of Artificial Intelligence”, died last week at the age of 88. The sad event was noted by both Singularitarians and skeptics from across the world and a Singularity Weblog fan sent me a remix of highlights from my original interview with Minsky together with footage from the classic documentary Machine Dreams. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

P.S. Check out the Official Alcor Statement Concerning Marvin Minsky 😉
