The emotion machine : commonsense thinking, artificial intelligence, and the future of the human mind by Marvin Minsky( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In [this book, the author] shows why we should expand our ideas about thinking and how thinking itself might change in the future. [This book] explains how our minds work, how they progress from simple kinds of thought to more complex forms that enable us to reflect on ourselves -- what most people refer to as consciousness, or self-awareness. Unlike other broad theories of the mind, this book proceeds in a step-by-step fashion that draws on detailed and specific examples. It shows that thinking -- even higher-level thinking -- can be broken down into a series of specific actions. From emotional states to goals and attachments and on to consciousness and awareness of self, we can understand the process of thinking in all its intricacy. And once we understand thinking, we can build machines -- artificial intelligences -- that can assist with our thinking, machines that can follow the same thinking patterns that we follow and that can think as we do. These humanlike thinking machines would also be emotion machines -- just as we are.-Dust jacket

5 editions published in 1988 in French and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour Minsky le cerveau ne serait qu'une somme de composants imparfaits, chacun doté d'une fonction déterminée que l'on sait aujourd'hui localiser, détruire ou exciter. Chaque composant -- que Minsky appelle agent -- ne peut faire à lui seul qu'une chose simple, qui n'exige ni esprit ni pensée. Pourtant, lorsqu'ils sont reliés entre eux, tous ces composants du cerveau constituent une sorte de société; ce sont les relations complexes à l'intérieur de cette société qui forment ce que l'on appelle l'esprit

A framework for representing knowledge by Marvin Minsky( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a partial theory of thinking, combining a number of classical and modern concepts from psychology, linguistics, and AI. Whenever one encounters a new situation (or makes a substantial change in one's viewpoint) he selects from memory a structure called a frame, a remembered framework to be adopted to fit reality by changing details as necessary. A frame is a data-structure for representing a stereotyped situation, like being in a certain kind of living room, or going to a child's birthday party. Attached to each frame are several kinds of information. Some of this information is about how to use the frame. Some is about what one can expect to happen next. Some is about what to do if these expectations are not confirmed. The "top levels" of a frame are fixed, and represent things that are always true about the supposed situation. The lower levels have many "slots" that must be filled by specific instances or data. Collections of related frames are linked together into frame-systems. The effects of important actions are mirrored by transformations between the frames of a system. These are used to make certain kinds of calculations economical, to represent changes of emphasis and attention and to account for effectiveness of "imagery". In Vision, the different frames of a system describe the scene from different viewpoints, and the transformations between one frame and another represent the effects of moving from place to place. Other kinds of frame-systems can represent actions, cause-effect relations, or changes in conceptual viewpoint. The paper applies the frame-system idea also to problems of linguistic understanding: memory, acquisition and retrieval of knowledge, and a variety of ways to reason by analogy and jump to conclusions based on partial similarity matching
