Papert Artificial Intelligence Progress Report January 1, 1972 Perceptrons 1st Edition 1969 Perceptrons Expanded Edition 1988 (Signed by Seymour A. Papert) Artificial Intelligence Progress Report January 1, 1972: Memo no. 252 is an extremely rare issue, of this important early work in Artificial Intelligence (AI) Description: This work was conducted at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology research program supported in part by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense and monitored by the Office of Naval Research under Contract number N00014-70-A-0362-0002 and in part by the National Science Foundation under Grant GJ-1049. At the time of this report, the main foci of attention of the MIT AI Laboratory included Robotics: Vision, mechanical manipulation. Advanced automation. Models for learning, Induction, and analogy. Schemata for organizing bodies of knowledge. Development of heterarchical programming control structures. Models of structures involved in commonsense thinking. Understanding meanings, especially natural language narrative. Study of computational geometry. Computational trade-offs between memory size, and parallelism. Theories of complexities of various algorithms and languages. New approaches to education. This report is an attempt to combine a technical progress report with an exposition of our point of view about certain problems in the Theory of Intelligence. Marvin Minsky Marvin Minsky (1927 2016) was Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and Donner Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. He was a cofounder of the MIT Media Lab and a consultant for the One Laptop Per Child project. Seymour A. Papert Seymour A. Papert was a Professor in MIT's AI Lab (1960 1980s) and MIT's Media Lab (1985 2000) and the author of Mindstorms: Children, Computers, and Powerful Ideas Perceptrons Summary: It was the author's view that although the time was not yet ripe for developing a really general theory of automata and computation. A perceptron is a parallel computer containing a number of readers that scan a field independently and simultaneously, and it makes decisions by linearly combining the local and partial data gathered, weighing the evidence, and deciding if events fit a given pattern, abstract or geometric. The rigorous and systematic study of the perceptron undertaken here convincingly demonstrates the authors' contention that there is both a real need for a more basic understanding of computation and little hope of imposing one from the top, as opposed to working up such an understanding from the detailed consideration of a limited but important class of concepts, such as those underlying perceptron operations.
